About Arlene

I have over thirty years of experience teaching English, German, Reading, Piano, and ESL in the US and abroad. I bring a lot to the table when it comes to tutoring...my many areas of expertise afford the student both focused and interdisciplinary approaches to getting ahead. I've worked successfully with students of all ages, including those with Asperger and ADHD considerations. I would love to work with you!

Among my credentials are an academic degree in German and a translator's certificate. I was trained in and certified to teach English to speakers of other languages using the Berlitz method. Today I use a mixture of Berlitz and other direct methods when working with my ESL students. Teaching language is a particular skill and joy.

Music is another passion of mine. As a former member of the Music Teachers National Association, I maintained a piano studio for over ten years before retiring. Holding a music education certification from the Catholic University of America, I am a seasoned teacher, pedagogue and choral instructor (Gregorian Chant). I teach piano, basic music theory, and Gregorian chant.

In addition to the above, I am an accomplished writer and editor, with over thirty publications to my name.
