There's no denying that learning German is HARD--I know very well from personal experience as a native English-speaking American how frustrating it can be! But through this, I also know how amazing it is when you finally understand! Before spending an entire year in Germany dedicated to becoming proficient in the language, I spent six years learning German in middle school and high school and one year at my university studying German.
My love of the language makes me want to help middle and high school students realize how exciting and rewarding working hard at a foreign language can be. My deep personal experience with trying to understand German has helped me figure out the tips and tricks, as well as understand how best to explain its tricky and seemingly evasive grammar. I have worked as a tutor in English and German previously, so I understand the patience and dedication this position needs. I also understand the commitment required to be a tutor: I promise to help your student in every way I can to improve their understanding and use of German.
Whether you're looking for extra German aural and written practice for your student, or if the student simply needs more time working with the classroom material, I will adapt and find diverse and fun ways to use and study German. I would love to have the chance to get to know your student and prove why learning German really can a great experience!
