My academic degrees are in English (Master's) and German (Bachelor's). Teaching English composition and English as a Second Language have been really enjoyable for me. I've taught at language schools, companies and at the community college level. I'm able to work as well with elementary school students and teenagers to assist with writing papers, expanding vocabulary and strengthening reading skills.
Because I've studied other languages, I'm a compassionate ESL teacher. I understand the struggles with acquiring fluency. I'm very open to working with students from all countries and backgrounds. Offering practical strategies is my specialty.
If you need proofreading, I have plenty of experience reviewing both academic and business (website, proposals, letters, etc.) documents. I am willing to work with you via email when there are time constraints.
Although I'm not a native German speaker, I have lived, worked and studied in Germany and acquired fluency through the experience. Because I began learning German through classes here in California, I can better relate to what students struggle with in terms of grammar and vocabulary.
