Hi, my name is Irene. I grew up in The Netherlands, am fluent in Dutch and started learning English, German and French at the age of 12.

I have always been curious and interested in language learning and acquisition. After living in the US for several years, I found I was still gravitating to studying and reading about languages and decided to go back to school to study German.

I have taught German for 15 years and English as a Second Language for 12 years. I taught and tutored German and Dutch to students of all ages. My teaching endorsements are in German and English, Kindergarten through 12th grade.

I find learning should be fun; and I tend to use as many visual aids as possible, including games, activities and level appropriate reading material. As language means communication, I emphasize speaking in my lessons through student-made skits or stories. As the student generates the vocabulary, the act of speaking in another language becomes spontaneous and fluent.

I have a Master's Degree in Education and a Bachelor's in German Language and Literature. I have been trained in GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition Design) an integrated method to teaching language, which is also a very useful method in teaching world languages. I was also trained in Differentiated Instructional Strategies; teachers use diverse methods to reach each student's unique potential.
