German tutoring is available with a seasoned, experienced instructor of German who has worked with a wide range of ages and ability levels. I have taught in both public and independent boarding schools, in community colleges, universities, and adult education in Massachusetts and instructed everything from beginning German through Advanced Placement German 5. I am the first non-native considered competent to teach adult education German at the Goethe-Institut, Boston. I studied at Universit├Ąt Hamburg and lived and worked in Germany for three years. In addition to teaching, I have worked as a German editor, translator, and court interpreter at First District Federal Court and have co-authored a beginning German textbook. I am happy to tailor instruction to the student's needs and desires: immersion instruction, non-grammar driven communicative instruction, grammar-based instruction, survival German for travel, conversation and composition, and other styles.
