My goal is to see students grow and be proud of what they accomplish because they have taken part in their own learning. In German, I can help students develop their understanding of the language to allow for increased communication in conversation, and reading and writing abilities. Whether it's travel you're preparing for, or to assist in a college course, or to just learn it because you want to, I will share my love for learning. My other areas of expertise are teaching literacy skills (Masters Degree) and with many years of photography as a hobby, I can share my knowledge in the technical and creative sides of this. Lessons are adapted to the learning style of the student to be most successful!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have a Bachelor's degree in Art. As an art tutor, my lessons include teaching about value, light, shadow, tone, color, and mood through the use of pencil, charcoal, conté crayon, colored pencil, and water color pencil. Students will explore two dimensional creativity with while learning how to give their work depth for a three dimensional feeling.

German

NYS Certified German Teacher with 10 years' classroom experience.
Studied in Austria and traveled many times to Germany.

Grammar

I am a NYS Certified foreign language teacher with 10 years' classroom experience.
To teach a foreign language, we must have an in-depth understanding of grammar. I can bring someone to understand their own language better by teaching the rules of grammar and use practical, easy lessons to make it work.

Reading

I hold a Master of Education Degree in Literacy from The College of St. Rose, Albany, NY. After assessing the student's current reading level and areas of concern, I develop lessons focused on these areas. Lessons can include phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary building, reading fluency, and comprehension. Choosing material to match the students' interests is an important part of these lessons.

What is hello? (answer)

Language evolves over time. The reference to the German verb to fetch, now known as "holen" when hailing a ferryman is interesting. Look at how all languages pick up on others: hello, hallo (german) , hola (spanish). Evolution and adopted words creep into our languages all the time...

Her voice sounds beautiful. His eyes look frightening. Your cooking smells fabulous! I each of these examples, there is a noun preceded by a possessive adjective. Each states simply, whose voice, eyes, or cooking we mean. The sound of her voice Is beautiful. The look in his eyes...
