My name is Wanda M. and I've recently returned from a five-year stint teaching German and English in Germany. I would like to give you a brief summary of my credentials, experience and approach to teaching.

I have a BA and an MA in German and have completed the coursework for a Ph.D. My German is rated at the highest level of proficiency (native fluency). I have been an instructor at UT Austin, Texas Tech University, the Free University of Berlin, and with the Texas Intensive English Program. I am private tutor and classroom language instructor with many years of experience with high school and college students and with older adults. I have taught German and English as a second language to individuals and to small and large groups, to teenagers and to business people.

As I have had students of all ages, from 14 to 81, I believe that anyone can learn a language in a patient and nurturing atmosphere. My instruction centers on communication and task-centered activities (how to carry out practical conversations, how to negotiate everyday situations), but I can also help with spelling, grammar and stylistics, if needed. I tailor my approach to the needs and learning styles of my students.

In today's global society, it is more important than ever to learn languages. Let me help you with your courses or to prepare for a trip or job abroad.
