Learn German and English with an experienced teacher. I have taught for the University of California at Santa Barbara, the University of Maryland, the Santa Rosa Junior College, the Goethe Institute and several community education classes. I have also taught high school and I have done lots of individual tutoring. I was born in Germany and am bilingual in German and English. I have studied in both Germany and the U.S. and have lived in both countries. My students learn an appreciation for culture, language skills, speaking skills and test taking skills AND they have fun doing it. Let me help you learn and become fluent in German or English. I can also help you take and pass the German fluency certificates recognized by the German government. If you need help in English I can take you to the next higher levels. I can help you better your speaking, writing and grammar skills.
I am a native born German and have taught for the University of California, the University of Maryland, the Goethe Institut and the Santa Rosa Junior College. Currently I am teaching conversational German at the J.C.
I have an M.A. in German and English and have had a Fulbright and a German Teacher Grant for study in Germany.
I have also tutored a variety of age groups as either single students or more than one.
I have more than thirty years experience as a teacher and tutor of English, English as a second language and German at the high school, college and adult education level. I always emphasize and teach study skills to my students so they can succeed in school, have confidence in their ability to learn and how to practice their skills until they become automatic. I teach students how to listen to directions, how to organize their thoughts and material, how to communicate in well thought out and grammatically correct writing and speech, how to ask questions about things they do not understand, how to use critical thinking to find and use reputable information and how to check their work for relevance and correctness. I offer remedial help where needed. It is very important to me that each student has the ability and the skills to succeed.
