My name is John. I have taught German at HACC in Harrisburg, taken education courses and practice teaching, and been an ESL tutor for over six months teaching a variety of students. I studied in Germany several times, and have traveled extensively. Also, I have substitute taught in the public school system. I was always the student at school as a youngster that helped the other ones with their homework. I have been involved in numerous clubs and volunteer activities, like musical groups, sports for fun, and work with horses.
I have a BA from Lebanon Valley College, and an MA from Middlebury College, Middlebury VT in German Language and Literature. In fulfillment of both requirements I studied abroad at schools in Germany. I have been an exchange student in a German G y m n a s i u m, and lived in two host families, and a U n i WG, or student common living quarters. Therefore, I have been immersed thoroughly in the German culture and language, and experienced the art, literature and modern Zeitgeist of present day Germany by visiting relatives, friends, cities, museums, and lectures in German. I am highly qualified to teach German. I have had just one tutoring student in German, who gave me positive feedback about her progress before she moved to Florida. I taught beginning German at Harrisburg Area Community College for one semester, and was invited back to continue teaching there, but I went on to continue my education instead. I have been tutoring ESL students for six months in reading as a volunteer activity and for professional development. I come highly recommended by the director of the organization where I tutor, for character, educational background and teaching ability. She is highly respected in the community, and serves as my reference when required. Please accept these qualifications for a tutoring placement in German.
