My passion for teaching comes from the fact that I learned so much from teachers along my way. Knowledge is power and it transformed me in many ways. I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds and hundreds of students for the last 18 years and see them improve. I love to see students empowered, realize their own potential and master challenges that they never thought possible before.
I specialize in tutoring for German
on every level. I work with total beginners up to college level.
I moved here 4 years ago from Vienna, and have taught at the Chazen Institute at Columbia University, the Dwight International School and the ABC Language
At the moment I mostly teach private clients, I like to work for myself.
I like to keep the student challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework and also provide periodic assessment. I believe in individualizing classes, so I really pick up the student exactly where they are and work with them from there. Individualized doesn't mean that it has to be one on one. I also teach groups.
I hold myself to a high standard. That's why I often ask for feedback, and I never bill for a lesson in which the student of parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring. I try to be flexible with my time. While I do have a 24-h-cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes. To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I have a tutoring space in the UWS. However, I am happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient for the student.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
