I have taught and tutored at many levels and know about the importance of the right atmosphere. Most students need to forget about their established learning habits by relearning how to relax and getting ready for the pleasure of learning. This makes them fit for success.

My assignment is inspiring students for the ability to learn even tough looking subjects without fear.

My native language is German and Luxembourgish. I tutored German, Math, Physics and Chemistry as well as Art: Sculpting and History. I also cultivated Intercultural Etiquette for high level manager and educated employees in Business Administration, MS Office, Budgeting, Marketing and Public Relations.

30 years in business provided the long-term experience and proves my record of success as consultant to governments, profit and non-profit organizations, with computer skills conducting financial and live-voice presentations.

Congratulations! Three and a half month of ambitious co-operation, my student reaped the fruits of our labor. She passed her speaking, reading and writing exams with impressing grades almost even to a native German. I am so proud of you!

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.

Elementary Math

I studied Math, Physics and Chemistry at the University of Cologne and tutored students. Later I also coached managers.
My approach to my students is first learning about their interests and then I use these subjects as an avenue to open up their minds and eyes to Mathematics.
English is my second language and I have speaking it for more than 30 years.

As Public Relations expert and Business Journalist, English is my business language since more then 30 years; also e.g. coaching manager in English
I am working for global player companies, in Formula 1 motorsport, and for governments and it's agencies.

Additional specialty fields: Cristallography, Laser Technology and Crystal Growth.

German

German is my native language. I earned my German "Abitur" degree in German and German literature.
Besides German, Luxemburgish and French are my home country's languages. English is my "business language" since +20 years.

To me it is important facilitating the pleasure of learning and speaking a new language which makes it easier to comprehend new challenges.

Microsoft Excel

Since Microsoft started their program in the late 1980s I am working with the complete Microsoft office suite. Excel was and still is an important tool for me and my business in any kind of budgeting or planning. For more then 20 years I trained my staff in the professional use of Excel, Word and other parts of Microsoft Office.

For more than 20 years, I trained my staff in the professional use of PP, Excel, Word and all the other parts of Microsoft Office.

Microsoft Word

Since Microsoft started their program in the late 1980's I am working with the complete MS office suite. For more then 20 years I trained my staff in the professional use of Excel, Word and other parts of MS Office.

Prealgebra

I earned my degree in Math at the University of Cologne and tutored students of all grades.

Public Speaking

During my engagement in Formula 1 as PR consultant for sponsors, I routinely had to speak to large groups of people and/or to press people about the involved company(s) business as well as their commitment to team(s) and motorsport.
My assignement in para-diplomacy also requires public speaking, presenting concepts to different groups of people.
At the University of Cologne, law school, I earned a certificate in Rhetoric in Public Speaking.

A story gets more interesting imo, if you try to combine the subjects in an unusual way. In fantasy and fiction things are never what they look like. Also try some unexpected turns. Think out of the box and try it. Here an example:   Homecoming It's almost dark, hidden by clouds...
