About Eric Gardekrans

Hi everyone!

My name is Eric Gärdekrans and I love teaching. Ever since I was a child I have been interested in learning and teaching others ( I used to teach my own sister and brother when we grew up).

I have always had an interest for everything that is to do with the human kind; languages, history, archaelogy, psychology and peadagogy. That is why I opted for educating myself to a teacher. And that is where I am today, a professional teacher at an Upper Secondary School in the centre of Stockholm, Sweden.

Up until now I have been working as a full-time employed teacher for eight years. Besides that I have also been teaching grown-ups part-time in the evenings.

Today, I feel that I would like to broaden my horizon a bit and step into the business of online teaching. I have little experience in this field already and I must say that this method is very thrilling. Why?

Well, it gives me the opportunity to give You quality education head to head and to tailor your particular language kit, all based on your needs and wishes.

So, that is where I stand; I want to offer you my best to help you learn the language of your interest and I give this to you on your conditions.

About my areas of teaching, I can say, that I can offer you a whole range of languages:

Spanish (from elementry to advanced level)
Italian (from elementary to advanced)
French (from elementary to advanced)
German (from elementary to very advanced)
English (from elementary to very advanced)
Swedish (from elementary to advanced)

I hope to see you out there in Cyberspace!

And please if you want to ask me about anything just mail me, you are always welcome and I check my mail inbox several times daily, also during the week-ends!

Many regards,

If you want to you can enter those pages and see my recommendations. I get very high points and it seems I am doing a good job teaching online. Both Livemocha and Verbalplanet are sites where people from all over the world are interested in teaching and / or learning other languages.

Teaching experience

Kunskapsskolan, Sweden

Aug 2007 - Aug 2008

Swedish, Spanish, Italian, French, German, English and Maths

I was responsible for the English Department and launched a project which we gave the name "Spetsengelska". This was a special program for pupils interested in devoting much time and effort into learning advanced English. The program was a huge success, and actually, it turned out that half of the pupils at Kunskapsskolan chose to sign in. At the end of the program we went for a very interesting journey to London.

Teaching experience

Ingridskolan, Sweden

Aug 2001 - Aug 2004


During a period of three years I enjoyed the benefit of teaching young students (from the ages of 11-19) with Asperger Syndrome and Autism all subjects they were supposed to learn at school, ranging from natural sciences, social sciences, Mathematics and languages. To my assistance I had four employees who answered to me. As you might understand teaching under such circumstances meant a lot of development in teaching and reaching out to the pupils.

Professional Experience
Care taker
Stiftelsen Stora Sköndal, Sweden
Jun 1991 - Aug 2007

I have been working at old people's homes off and on for a period of more than15 years. This experience has given me much insight into treating people with different needs and I think that I have benefitted a lot from having worked within the health care sector, especially now that I work as a teacher.
