Bio

After completing my Bachelor of Arts at UC Irvine and my English Literature Teaching Credential at SDSU, I moved to Germany where I taught English as a Second Language, how to give presentations, business correspondence and preparation for a variety of Cambridge English exams as well as the TOEFL.

After completing my Bachelor of Arts at UC Irvine and my English Literature Teaching Credential at SDSU, I moved to Germany where I taught English as a Second Language, how to give presentations, business correspondence and preparation for a variety of Cambridge English exams as well as the TOEFL. I have trained all ages from adults in-company to 5th graders in school. Supporting my 3 children as they completed the rigorous education at a German school, also gave me years of practice on what works and what does not work when assisting young students. Corporate trainings included workshops on how to lead interviews and I particularly enjoyed giving talks on cultural differences between Americans and Germans.

I have received regular feedback in writing from participants who said that I am skilled at creating an environment where participants feel safe to ask their questions and that the improvement in their grades is confirmation of the progress they have made. To avoid boredom, I use activities which bring in an element of fun or where the participant is highly active. I have attended numerous workshops and collected a broad set of effective materials.

After living in Germany for 28 years, I am a near native speaker of the language. Most students long for a chance to not only master the grammar, but have the opportunity to really speak the language. I focus on conversation whenever possible because it creates a positive association with the language.

I am looking forward to hearing from you so we can talk about your learning needs and agree on the best approach. I am fairly flexible on the hours I can work during the week. Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.
