I recently joined WyzAnt as a tutor, but I have been tutoring students in various subjects since I was 14 years old.

I am fluent both in German and English. I speak "Hochdeutsch/Standarddeutsch" without an accent, and I am an expert in story telling. I have a private collection of more than 1500 books which I make available to my students when necessary.

I am also an experienced ESL teacher and can help students improve their English and/or take and pass the TOEFL test. Plus, I recently helped a student study for and pass California Real Estate exam.

Since I was the editor-in-chief of an internationally distributed magazine and an award winning writer, I believe I am well-qualified to help students improve their writing - in terms of grammar, style, and effectiveness.

My experience throughout the years has shown me that different students prefer different teaching formats and styles, and I tailor my lessons to fit each student's specific needs.

I believe that - as a tutor - it is not only important that you are familiar with the subject you are teaching, but that you are also able to teach it in such a way that it is easily absorbed and retained by the student.

I offer discounts to students who take more than three lessons per week, and skype-lessons who are not within comfortable traveling distance.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.

I have been a Macintosh user for the last 20+ years. I know most Apple programs like Pages, Numbers, Entourage, IWeb, iPhoto, Final Cut Pro, GarageBand etc. and can teach them. I am also familiar with Microsoft Office for Mac and know many shortcuts and tricks for using those programs. I have taught both beginners and advanced students on the Mac.

Study Skills

I have been a tutor - in one form or another - since I was 14 years old. I believe part of my success so far has been my ability to improve my students' study skills along with teaching them the subject matter. I like to keep on top of the latest research when it come to "learning," and I believe I have an arsenal of methods that can benefit any student to acquire new knowledge quickly and efficiently.
