For more than twenty-seven years, I have been passionate about instilling in students a true interest in life-long learning, in learning languages, and in exploring other cultures and life styles. Beyond that, I have experienced special satisfaction in developing my students’ social skills, their creativity and analytical thinking, along with a focus on idealism and social justice.

As a native of Germany, raised by parents who taught internationally and exposed me to a wealth of cultures and approaches, I continue to aspire to teach in environments in which the natural learning capacity, creativity, and spirit of the learner can be encouraged and explored.

During the course of my career, I have had the opportunity to teach at various schools in Germany, Texas, Pennsylvania, and California. Seven of the nine years I have taught in both public and private schools in the United States were spent teaching as a generalist, especially in 5th and 6th grades. In Texas, I taught English, Social Studies, Science, Math, Computer Literacy, and German. I taught High School German in Pittsburgh, PA. I was a teacher for Math, German, and Humanities for 5th and 6th grades at a private international school in Menlo Park, CA. Students and parents have valued the interdisciplinary connections I strive for, my multilingual communication skills, my structured and well-planned approach as well as my ability to react to changing requirements in flexible, creative, and efficient ways.

I author and code everything myself and develop my own classroom materials as well. For tutoring, I would gladly go with your child's textbooks and materials.
