Uncommonly flexible tutor for German, History, Latin and Math.
I am a German native who has lived, studied, and worked in this country since 1983. I came here after graduating from a classical Gymnasium with college prep status, and 4 years of college focusing on Latin and History, at Mainz and Tuebingen Universities. I graduated with an MA degree from Washington University, St. Louis, MO in 1984. For 5 years I taught Latin and History at private schools while taking nightly law classes at Temple Law School in Philadelphia. For the past 20 years I have been working as an attorney concentrating primarily on family, child caring, and delinquency issues. I am an avid reader, in more than one language. I love stories and the craft of writing.
Tutoring gives me an opportunity to share my love of learning and to use creative ways to inspire mostly younger individuals with a desire for self improvement and excellence. I assess my student's learning style and needs, and create an individual plan and implementation strategy. Every human can learn. Every child, by nature, is eager to play, learn, and explore, often without distinguishing one from the other. I am enthusiastic about each of my subjects, and love to help each student discover their own talents, and acquire confidence in their abilities through work and gradual step ups in achievement.
