Hallo! My name is Frau K. and I have been teaching German, gifted and talented, ESL, and remedial High School core subjects for the past eleven years. I earned my Bachelor degrees in German and International Studies from Miami University in Oxford, OH and then went on to complete my master’s degree in education from the University of Dayton. I have experience as a high school teacher, both in a brick-and-mortar school (10 years) as well as in a virtual school (1 year) and have tutored students from Kindergarten through adults.

I have several years of experience tutoring elementary and high school students in their basic core courses. These students were struggling to pass classes as well as standardized tests and by working together, nearly all of the students passed their courses. We worked on Algebra I, geometry, biology, physical science, English, and history.

I have lived and studied in Germany as both a high school and a college student and am very comfortable teaching both the German language and about German culture. I travel to Germany yearly and have also taken four different groups of students on private tours to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Although I grew up in Ohio, I currently live in St. Johns, FL with my husband and our two boys. We speak German at home and we all love to play and watch soccer. I also love reading, gardening, hiking, learning about other cultures, horseback riding, and traveling.

Because of my experience as a virtual teacher, please do not feel constrained by location. I am more than willing to tutor online! I am looking forward to working with you, whether I will be guiding you on your journey to learn German or helping you with one of your core academic subjects!
