I am a certified German teacher who would like to share my passion for the German language and culture with you! I use the immersion method and focus on what you are able to do with German at the end of our lessons. We will focus on vocabulary building, proper sentence structure and communication in the four skills of speaking, writing, listening and reading. Culture is integrated throughout the lessons, so that one can gain a better understanding of the similarities and differences of the German-speaking world and the United States. I hold a B.A in German, two graduate degrees in education, and I have 13 years experience teaching children, young adults and adults. I was very fortunate to realize my dream to live and work in Germany for five years, where I ultimately gained fluency and expertise in the German language and culture via a first-hand immersion experience.

So whether you do business with Germany, Austria or Switzerland, are traveling to the German-speaking world for pleasure, need some additional instruction time and practice, or would just like to learn a new and exciting subject which broadens your global horizons, come learn about the German language and culture with me!

Translation services and speech coaching also available upon request. Bis dann!

In terms of early childhood and elementary education, I would strive to inspire your pre-school and school-aged children to have a life-long love for reading, literacy and learning! I am equipped to teach phonics, guided reading and the like and would love to teach your child one-on-one or in a small group setting. I hold a master's degree in literacy from the University of New England and am studying early childhood development on an independent basis.

I hope to hear from you soon!

I have an interest in teaching phonics and am qualified to do so because of my background in second language teaching and my Master's degree in Literacy from the University of New England. I own many materials for teaching phonics, such as Hooked on Phonics Kindergarten, First and Second grade and a large collection of graded readers, and I am familiar with many websites that help teach phonics, phonemic awareness and the like.
