I am a Swiss woman, newly married. My mother tongue is German, but I am also fluent in Dutch, French, English and Italian. My Spanish is only of oral knowledge.

My college education is in foreign languages in Switzerland and I added a Cambridge University Proficiency to enable me to teach not only children and teenagers, but also adults.

I have several years of experience in these languages living in the relevant countries and working in translation business, office settings and in tutoring.

I am working on my degree in psychology and have earned my living before arriving in the USA by teaching teenagers how to study more efficiently so that learning abilities can be maximized. I am very patient and understanding, but I also like to keep the tutoring disciplined enough, so that the client is able to reach a set goal.

Languages are a passion of mine and I love to motivate and support people in learning.

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.

ADD/ADHD

Good morning!
I am finishing my studies in psychology here, but I have already done developmental psychology, human memory, neuropsychology and social psychology.(And of course other subjects like statistics, etc. that are not relevant in this matter)
And I have also worked with mentally disabled adults in Turkey as well as helped children with learning disabilities in Switzerland with their study problems.
Therefore I would feel comfortable helping children with add/adhd, dyslexia and special needs. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to ask me.
Thank you and kind regards

Dutch

My mother is Dutch and I grew up partly in Holland and partly in Switzerland. She only talked Dutch to me and I did live some time in Amsterdam.

Special Needs

I have a degree in psychology, specializing in children, and have worked in Switzerland as well as in Turkey with special needs adults and children/teenagers.

I feel very comfortable in dealing with different special needs. ADD/ADHD is an especially well studied area in developmental psychology where I can assist with a professional and personal background. I am currently tutoring a neighbor teenager with ADHD, and his improvements are obvious in organization, concentration and ability to focus.
