Hi, my name is Jeanette and I am a Master's student, who is experienced in tutoring students of all ages. I was raised bilingually in German and English, and lived in Germany for 17 years. I just finished up my Master’s degree in German Studies at Middlebury College, VT.
While living in Germany, I tutored high school students in English and also worked in camps for children (ages 7-13) during the summers and helped out in the children’s Sunday school group in church.
During my undergraduate time in Indiana, I taught German for two years to two girls that were 9 and 12 when we started the lessons. After they had the basics of the language down, such as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, we practiced their conversational skills, and decided to make the learning experience more fun, by reading books with them. At first we read German fairy tales, then we advanced to reading their favorite books in German. At the end of that time, the girls decided to go to Germany and attend school there for six weeks.
I also tutored other college students in the German language, which usually consisted of proofreading papers, explaining unclear grammatical concepts, practicing pronunciation, and conversing in German.
