About Dagmar El.

What makes me so different: I am passionate about teaching languages and I genuinely care for my students. Certified to teach German in Colorado and to teach as well as test German, English, and French in Europe, I am also a substitute teacher for District 38 and mentor AP German students. On the weekends, I truly enjoy teaching adults (intermediate and advance level) at the Deutsche Samstagsschule Denver/Colorado Springs and during the week tutor private students of all ages.

Teaching for more than 30 years to over 30 nationalities on two different continents including members of the US Armed Forces Europe and their dependents as well as members of NATO and at the International School at SHAPE, Belgium (German & US sectors targeting German & ESL &), I am also experienced in the home-bound program while assisting children with disabilities. Important for me is not only to lecture empowering and rhetoric, but also to offer personalized tutoring targeting each student's needs with the help of my extensive private library of learning material in various languages.

In my free time, I actively use public speaking to national and international audiences. My own communication abilities (languages) of German, English, Spanish, Italian, Yiddish, and Luxembourgish, having lived in various countries and/or states in Europe, the United States and Africa, being familiar with the military life style (my husband retired after 25 years from the US Air Force), having studied: English, German, and Business in Germany; Business & Psychology (Bachelor), Human Relations (Masters) and Education/Educational Leadership (PhD), permit me to communicate with various people from a multitude of backgrounds.

Please feel free to contact me at any time - even if you just want to talk. Also note, referrals from former students are available upon request.

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.

German

I am a native German speaker who loves languages. Working as an educator for more than 30 years on various continents, I truly enjoy teaching German, French and English. My most challenging and at the same time rewarding job was working with 24 different nations (NATO) while being stationed in Belgium. For the past five years, I have been teaching in the Colorado Springs/Monument area for the German Samstagsschule as well as for district 38.

"Languages are the key to the soul" ^Dagmar E.^

Public Speaking

I have been tutoring and mentoring adults for employees of the German 'Arbeitsamt' and adults with multiple disabilities for IKOKU (empowerment and rhetoric). I also worked as a journalist for a newspaper as well as the Presse-und Informationsamt Trier including preparing speeches for the major of Trier and was responsible for journalists visiting the city of Trier during his 2,000 year celebration. Additionally, I speak in front of a national and international audience about the importance of using foreign languages in an appropriate and effective way while reaching out to a diversified clientele.
