I am a German native and I love teaching. In both Germany and the United States I have taught and tutored students of all ages for more than 10 years. While I received my Master's degree in Education at the Free University of Berlin I am also a certified German teacher in the US and hold a diploma to teach ESL/ESOL. My students enjoy and have benefited from the fact that I am patient and flexible and tailor my lessons to their goals and learning styles. Some of my favorite areas of language teaching are: English pronunciation and speaking fluency, vocabulary building, grammar, German for traveling - be able to chat with the natives. I am looking forward to working with 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. 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.

ESL/ESOL

My career as an English teacher started when I studied English at the university in Germany. After moving to North America, I began teaching and tutoring ESL in 2009, for example at Yale University (Office for International Students and Scholars) and most recently at Immigration Services Society in Vancouver. My credentials include the CELTA from Cambridge University and the TESOL Diploma from VCC in Vancouver, BC. Currently, I am a tutor for ESL and German in Seattle, and I teach Workplace ESL for a non-profit organization.

German

I am a German native and veteran teacher. My experience includes teaching German to immigrants in Germany and German as a foreign language to middle and high school students in the United States. While teaching at public schools I often tutored individual students, either to support those who were struggling or to provide additional instruction to gifted students in order to move them faster to the next level. I am very experienced in individualized instruction and will help you to reach your specific goals.

Grammar

I am a German native and a life-long learner of English. I understand the difficulties that students of English face, particularly in the area of grammar. I am also a credentialed ESL/ESOL teacher and passed the grammar courses of the TESOL diploma program with outstanding grades. However, I don't look at grammar as an isolated part of language learning. In my approach to tutoring grammar I always make it a point to consider the context in which certain grammar concepts are used.

Vocabulary

I am a German native and a life-long learner of English. I am also a certified German teacher and a credentialed ESL/ESOL teacher. I mention the teaching of German because this experience has been invaluable for me regarding the methodologies of teaching vocabulary. I have 10+ years of experience teaching and tutoring ESL and German. My passion for reading English literature and for other languages (French and Spanish) provides me with the joy of constantly learning new vocabulary myself.

My son is delighted with Gudrun — She is a great, experienced teacher and my eight year old son liked her from the first minute. He is refreshing his German by practicing conversation and learning new words but most important, Gudrun makes the class enjoyable. My son is already looking forward to his next German lesson next week. ...
