I'm currently a K-12 German teacher licensure candidate at CSU Ft. Collins and former Berlin city guide with 17 years of experience living and working in Germany. I love teaching not only the language, but also about people, culture and history. My experience includes diverse work as an English-German translator and interpreter.
As a social worker with a strong clinical, language, and humanities background, I enjoy empowering students in reaching their study, education, and career goals via English language test preparation, reading and writing support.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
I look forward to assisting you in learning German from beginning to advanced levels, and to proofing and editing college level papers or business correspondence. Conversational German is available in small groups. I also offer pre-travel seminar for Berlin and other destinations in Germany!
Before returning to the States in 2009, I lived in Germany, where I had my own business as a city guide, translator, and interpreter for nearly a decade. Each year, I welcomed thousands of guests to Berlin and often toured with as many as 50 clients at a time. My work included researching, presenting, educating and discussing at diverse venues, both indoors and outdoors (i.e. at museums, monuments, memorials, historical sites of interest, etc.), either while walking or while leading bus tours for people from all walks of life.
As a public speaking tutor, I can help you with both content (the organization and preparation of material) and techniques that will boost your confidence in making presentations (voice, breathing, posture, interaction with audience, etc.)
Great tutor — Ari is an amazing German tutor. My daughter started out failing her German class but as soon as Ari started helping her, her grades started to raise. It was great seeing my daughter start gaining an understanding for the German language. This is all thanks to Ari's great tutoring skills. ...
