About Jolanta

I have graduated in Modern German Literature, Medieval German Literature and Islamic science with a Master of Arts at the University of Bonn, Germany in July 2004. I acquired a Teaching Certificate of DaF - German as a Foreign Language in March 2004.
After my graduation, I taught German (A1-C1), German History from 1945 and Literacy for adults for eight years at various language schools in Bonn. I also was working as an examiner for Zertifikat Deutsch, A1-A2, B2 and Deutsch Test für Zuwanderer.
Since I moved to the USA, I have been teaching German children and adults at a Saturday school.

Based on my teaching and examiner experiences, I am very confident to provide German tutoring in any levels.
I believe that learning a foreign language is the key to success for students. As a teacher, I strive to motivate my students to do their best and extend their own personal limits.
I always try to understand the differences in my students' learning styles, so that I can implement best practice strategies into daily activities, curriculum and assessments. Allowing students to access information in terms they are comfortable with increase their academic confidence.

I can adapt myself to your preferred class style. Let me hear what you are looking for and let's create our own class!

I have learned German with her for a couple of month. She's very professional and also patient with teaching. My language skill gained very fast and my German friends are all surprised how fast I learned.
