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 and English on every level. I work with total beginners up to college level, where I teach literature and critical thinking. My youngest student is a kid age 4, and my oldest retired 10 years ago.
I teach at a Private School in NYC and at Columbia University at the moment.
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 a student up exactly where they are and work with them from there. It is important for me to work on the passive and active knowledge of my student at the same time.
And I often realize that even confident people are very shy in talking in a foreign language when they are not totally sure of mastering it.
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 office in Midtown Manhattan, where I teach private classes and group classes.
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!
Originally from Austria, my mother tongue is German and I have always excelled in that subject from a very early age on.
I was always very interested and passionate about learning more about Grammar, literature and history of the language.
Moving on I got a bachelor degree from the University of Vienna in German (Grammar and Literature).
I have been teaching German to all levels and all ages for about 15 years now.
I have been successfully preparing people for the TOEFL test for almost 5 years now.
