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.
