I am fairly new to the Atlanta area and am eager to begin tutoring German in the Marietta, Roswell and Alpharetta area. I am the child of a German immigrant and was raised with an appreciation for the German language and culture. I began studying German in high school, and went on to major in German Studies at an Ivy League college. Following graduation I spent two years living and working in Hamburg, Germany to polish my language skills. When I returned to the US, I began a career at Lufthansa German Airlines in the Cargo Division, where I served as the Executive Asst. to the Cargo Manager. It was a very rewarding and exciting experience.
I believe that to get the most out of tutoring, students should be prepared to devote at least two hours per week to tutoring sessions. I would appreciate it if students could prepare themselves for the next lesson by reviewing material from the prior lesson. Although much time must be spent on understanding fundamental grammatical concepts, I would also like to work on conversational skills. There is just not enough time for teachers to give students the opportunity to practice speaking while in the classroom.
I am very flexible and am happy to tailor my lessons to my students' needs.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in German Studies from Dartmouth College. I was trained in the Rassias Method of language drill instruction while an undergraduate and used these methods to teach students in beginning German courses. These grammar drills are extremely helpful to anyone who wants to perfect their grammar skills. After finishing college I moved to Hamburg, Germany for two years and taught English to German business professionals which helped me polish my German language skills. Upon my return to the US, I worked as the executive assistant to the regional manager of Lufthansa Cargo at JFK. Most of my written and spoken work was conducted in German on a daily basis.
