I am a highly qualified, effective German tutor.

I grew up and lived for 30 years in Germany and Austria. I traveled to Switzerland, France, Italy, Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Greece. Besides language skills I can teach about the different European cultures.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

German

Having lived in Germany and Austria for more than 25 years, I am familiar with the language and culture of both countries. I know their customs.

Microsoft PowerPoint

In my experience as a tutor I have done a lot of PowerPoint presentations including any kind of multimedia files.

Microsoft Word

I have worked with MS Word since its original version back in 1990 and have used through the years all the upgrades of MS Office. I am a writer and proofreader by trade and am skilled in the use of word processors like MS Word and the whole MS Office Suite.

Phonics

Teaching phonics is not dissimilar to learning mathematics. In maths you learn step by step. You learn to count before you add, add before you subtract You learn in small incremental steps and it is the same when you are teaching reading.

There is an unspoken order in teaching phonics just as there is an unspoken order in how to teach mathematics.
However,there can sometimes be hazy areas about what to teach and when. For example,
when do you teach the 'silent /e/' rule?

The point I am trying to get across is, that you do need to be somewhat flexible and be open to go back or forward a few steps if it helps the child you are teaching.

Sometimes you hit that 'teaching moment' when everything has somehow aligned and the student has that beautiful 'light bulb' experience!

We use that teaching moment to praise and encourage the child's observations so next time we re-visit that phonics rule, the student would be more likely to remember it.

Writing

I am an expert in proofreading, comprehension skills and developing and improving writing skills. I review and revise any writing assignment, composition, research papers or literary work. I also provide translation services, if necessary.
