I am a native of Germany and have lived in the United States for the past 20 years. My family and I live in Canton, MI. I have been teaching German to adults, families and students for the past 5 years. My degree is in German/English translation obtained in Duesseldorf, Germany. My teaching style is tailored to what the student would like to accomplish. If the intention is to move to Germany, the focus would be on conversation. If help is needed with homework, classroom assignments or passing AP German, the focus would be on a more structured approach to the language. Some people who work for a German-based company would like to understand and speak a minimum of German, so the focus would be on building vocabulary and grammar.
My approach to ESL instruction is to learn the basics first and build from there, also more of a practical than structural approach.
