6 years of English tutoring experience with a focus on English for specific purpose and test preparation.

Jockum, international start-up accelerator, says:
To be trained and coached by Kirsten is an experience, that not only provides you with the tools you need to gain better understanding and delivery of the English language, but also leaves you with more energy than when you came.
Gerda, Quality Assurance representative at Novo Nordisk, says:
Kirsten always varies the lessons and always gives me the possibility to learn in different ways. So a 2.5 hour lesson just flies by like the wind! She has good intuition about people and knows how to “read” them quickly and find their areas of weakness. After having her as my teacher for a year, my English has improved drastically.
Maria, Global Studies MBA, says:
I took some ESP (English for Specific Purpose) courses from Kirsten.
She created such a comfortable learning environment that learning English became more fun and effortless. She delivered the teaching material according to my needs. She is always prepared for you and has high expectations.
HobbiesMy teaching style is laid back and personal. I tailor our lessons to your needs and interests and offer a safe and relaxed learning environment. You are welcome to bring your own materials (presentations, papers, ideas) so we can make the lesson as effective and relevant as possible.
I enjoy my work because I have the privilege of coming in contact with so many new people from all over the world. It is truly a gift to 'go to work' and at the same time share culture and expertise.
I believe a teacher/student relationship, in Adult education, should be more of an equal partnership. I like to think of myself as a coach who can guide you to success in your language learning (or polishing). I look forward to working with you.

KIRSTEN was very efficient. I am a language professor at the university myself so I know what a good tutor really means. I have progressed significantly this week. ( I was in Copenhagen for my vacations) Thank you so much for the quality of the lessons.
Reliable, kind, good at what she does and gives excellent advices! 100% recommendable - a personal consultation is casual and feels like sitting and working with a friend, and the editing of essays/emails never disappoints.
I recommend Kristen as a private teacher. She helped me to improve my grammar and conversation. She always prepare lesson or topic as I requested. She always provides learning materials and gives you a tips to improve your language.
Kirsten is a competent English teacher with strong work ethics. She possesses an open, accessible personality, and she is sensitive to the issues involved in cross-cultural communication as well as relationships at a professional level. I consider Ms Kirsten to be a very competent specialist. I was so happy working with her and I have no doubt that in view of her qualifications and experience she will be of a great help to others as well.
