I am a German
native speaker from Switzerland with the Texas Educator certifications for German, French and Latin
. I am member of the National and Texas Junior Classical Leagues, member of ACTFL (American Council of the Teaching of Foreign Languages), AATG (American Association of Teachers of German) and chair of Sister Cities International
My teaching method includes 'speech
acts': cultural specific ways of communication and knowledge for today's global marketplace. I will help with test preparations for AP and official national and international proficiency tests.
I teach foreign language
skills by keeping the student visually engaged and verbally interactive in a fun and relaxed learning environment. Having worked with newcomers with the LI program gave me a great experience and an excellent tool for teaching any second language
Before I started my studies at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, I was admitted to the School of Applied Arts of Zurich. The curriculum for my Master's Degree included Math
and Latin certification (KMK Latinum), with majors in Italian
language and literature
, Art history
and minor in History of French language. I wrote my thesis about the Self Representations of the Leaders and Advisors of the Italian Renaissance and their educational programs, that were based on the Antique sources and knowledge. During my studies, I taught French, Italian and Art at the Public High school in Switzerland and French at the Public High school in America. I home-schooled my two children through Elementary School since I wanted them to learn several languages at early age. I formed a parent group teaching German and Art classes.
