Harry started Soft Landing and is the Director of Studies. Not only is he an extremely talented German teacher with more than 20 years of experience, but he has also developed much of the course materials used by our students.
Parina worked as an export expert for international companies for many years. She loves to learn and teach languages and has a vast experience in learning languages both in groups and one-to-one. Her considerable experience of travelling and studying in various countries has given her a deep understanding for the needs of people who have recently arrived in Switzerland.
Being Swiss, Parina is fluent in Swiss German, as well as German, English and Spanish. Together with teaching German, she has also been our Course Coordinator since June 2015.
Cristina (studio acris GmbH) is our consultant for all marketing matters. She was born and educated in Italy and has been living in Zug for some years.
She is married to a Swiss and has two sons. She loves reading, being with friends and… going to the beach. She has broad marketing and project management experience at an international level with Fortune 100 companies, as well as with smaller local companies.
Gaye first arrived in Switzerland nearly 20 years ago from South Africa. She has a background in economics and banking and assists Harry, Parina and Cristina with marketing Softlanding projects and materials. She loves to be active outdoors, enjoys trying to keep up with her three energetic children and is always willing to pass on helpful information to newcomers about living in Zug.
