Dear Students and Parents,
I have worked extensively both as a classroom teacher and a private tutor for many different subjects. I have a passion for Algebra, Basic Math, History, English, and Foreign Languages. My parents immigrated to the USA from Switzerland so I was raised bilingually and speak both German and Swiss German fluently. I also studied French for many years and several months in France.
I believe that every person can be successful academically with hard work, dedication, and practice.
I have been teaching and tutoring for 10 years after working for many years in Investment Banking and Portfolio Management.
I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra, English, German and French at middle-schools and high schools in the San Diego Unified School District and Poway School District. I also taught German for grades Kindergarten and Grades 6-8 both as a full time teacher and as a long term Substitute teacher at a charter school here in San Diego. I have California Teaching Credentials in History, German, and Multiple Subjects. I also have a Level B2 certificate for teaching French that I completed in Nice, France. For the last few summers I have even taught a special class on Investing at a private summer school for grades 5-12.
I have a CELTA degree for teaching English - and worked in Paris teaching English to adults at intermediate and advanced levels. I have also tutored PhD students from Canada and other countries interested in improving their English speaking, listening, and writing skills. I would be happy to share some of my excellent resources to improve your grammar or conversation skills.
I worked as a tutor and helped students of various ages improve their grades substantially in Algebra, German, French, History, and reading and writing.
I have great resources, and I can also help you with strategies for staying organized, preparing for tests, and completing writing assignments and other projects. I have used Excel, PowerPoint, and Pages extensively and I would be happy to help you become proficient with these important software tools.
I look forward to meeting you, and helping you on your journey to success.
