My mother is an English teacher and I love to read, hence I have always performed well in English.
In high school I took the AP English exam and received a 5 (the highest score) and graduated high school with a 4.0 and college with a 3.87. This would not have been possible without good English reading and writing skills.
I received a Fulbright grant to work at a high school in Germany teaching English for a year. Outside of class, I tutored English for two students and two professionals. I also have experience tutoring two Korean boys at middle school level.
I have been using a computer as long as I can remember. My father works in IT and we always had access to the internet and a computer. I am most familiar with Windows and Microsoft, but given access to the internet I am able to troubleshoot just about anything. I recently installed a NAS (network attached storage) at work and am currently working on the company website.
I started learning German in 7th grade and continued through my senior year of high school, including taking the AP German course. I attended several state-wide German competitions and won first in many categories every time I competed. After 11th grade I won a trip to Germany sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of German based on my performance in a national exam.
I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in German. During my junior year, I studied and worked in Mannheim, Germany; I studied one semester at a business school and then worked for BASF in their Sustainability Department surrounded by German coworkers.
I recently completed my Fulbright year in Kiel, Germany, working at a business-oriented German high school. I attended German classes at the university in Kiel while I was there.
I taught English to non-native speakers for a year in Germany and have experience teaching correct pronunciation of written words. In addition to teaching, I tutored privately for 2 grade school students and 2 professionals.
As a Fulbright grantee, I worked at a German business-oriented high school with German students learning English. It was my responsibility to read and correct my students' work. I also tutored privately and proofread for a doctor working on articles for a medical journal.
My parents encouraged reading from an early age and I have always been an avid reader. I highly support the love of reading in others. My sorority in college supported literacy as its main philanthropy; every Friday we went to a local elementary school and read with a third grade class. We also celebrated Read Across America Day by bringing books and reading with students every year.
As a Fulbright scholar in Germany, I read short stories and a few novels with my English classes.
My mother is an English teacher and I love to read; this has greatly influenced my ability to write. Although I do not write creatively, I am well versed in the essential elements of good academic writing. In high school I took the AP English exam and received a 5 (the highest score) and graduated high school with a 4.0 and college with a 3.87. This would not have been possible without good writing skills.
