My availability is currently Fridays after 1pm and weekends.

My academic degrees are in English (Master's) and German (Bachelor's). Teaching English composition and English as a Second Language are things I enjoy. I've taught at language schools, companies and at the community college level. I relate well to elementary school students and teenagers to assist with writing papers, expanding vocabulary and strengthening reading skills.

Because I've studied German and Spanish, I'm a compassionate ESL teacher. I understand the struggles with acquiring fluency. I'm very open to working with students from all countries and backgrounds. Offering practical strategies is my specialty.

If you need proofreading, I have plenty of experience reviewing both academic and business (website, proposals, letters, etc.) documents. I am willing to work with you via email/phone when there are time constraints.

Although I'm not a native German speaker, I have lived, worked and studied in Germany and acquired fluency through the experience. Because I began learning German through classes here in California, I can better relate to what students struggle with in terms of grammar and vocabulary.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring a 10 year old for the past few weeks. We work on vocabulary building, reading comprehension, use of past versus present tenses (one of her difficulties) and pronunciation. I have found a lot of strategies to get her to write and participate as much as possible in the lesson, so I feel I'm qualified to tutor elementary school kids now.

Supportive

Elke has been the best English tutor I've ever had! I've been working with Elke for over two years now and she has given me support and feedback regarding my academic papers. When I couldn't find a friend with sound writing skills, Elke was there to give advice when addressing essay topic's along with feedback regarding grammar issues.
