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.
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.
Excellent, professional, and patient — Ella is an excellent teacher and extremely professional. She was my computer and German teacher. She is very kind and was always attentive to my needs. I'm not American and she was very patient. Now I'm in Germany and I can notice the efficacy of her lessons. ...
