I have my MA in German from Middlebury College, a current New Jersey teaching certificate in German and TESOL certification from Philadelphia Biblical University. Most recently I have been employed as an independent contractor, working for agencies where I provided ESL and German tutoring to international businesses and private students. My clients have included engineers, business managers and lawyers. I have also worked with students from kindergarten age through graduate school. I look forward to working with ESL students to their improve oral and written communication skills, pronunciation, reading comprehension, idiom usage, and their understanding of the American culture. Having lived abroad as a student and teacher, I understand what it is like to live and work using a second language in another culture. After completing my MA work in Germany, I taught conversational English for non-credit at the Johannes Gutenberg University and also taught English in a German public school in Alzey where I had students in grades five through eleven. I also look forward to tutoring beginning and intermediate German. My classroom experience includes teaching German on a middle school/junior high level.
