About Julia

Hi my name is Julia, I am 28 years old and from Germany.
I currently work as an ESL teacher at a University in Connecticut and as a German teacher in an international company.
A big part of my work is also private tutoring. I enjoy teaching all kinds of students: little kids, teenagers, adults of all ages.

Some background information about me:
I came to the USA in 2011 for my M.A. in German studies at UConn and graduated in December of 2012.
I am a certified ESL and German teacher and have been teaching for many years in Germany, Brazil and the USA. I have been tutoring ever since I was 12 years old. I love teaching because it is inspiring for me to motivate students.

My real passion are languages. I speak and teach German, English, French and Italian as well as basic Spanish, and got basic knowledge of a few other languages such as Portuguese, Hindi and Russian.

I would love to help you learn a language or improve your language skills.

I am looking forward to helping you.

Julia

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.

English

English is my first foreign language. I have taken it in high school for 9 years, and then in college for another 4 years.
I have always loved it.
After college I obtained my certificate for teaching English as a foreign language (Celta). I have tutored English since 6th grade for my entire high school, then I worked in adult ed in Germany and Brazil. I translated for multiple companies.
In 2011 I came to the USA to continue teaching ESL here.

ESL/ESOL

I am an experienced ESL teacher and tutor. I have taught in various countries such as Germany, Brazil and the USA.

In 2010 I received my certificate for teaching English as a foreign language.

I prepared multiple students for the TOEFL, and other exams.

French

I have taken French for 7 years in High School in Germany and then 4 more years in college in Germany. I have always loved the language because I used to live about 45 mins driving distance from France.
Ever since I started French, I worked as a tutor for my entire high school. This continued even after my graduation.
After college, I worked as a translator, but soon afterwards I discovered that teaching languages is much more fun for me.

German

German is my native language and my true passion.
I grew up in Germany, always tutored kids from other countries ever since I was 12 years old.
I have taught adult ed from age 20 on.
In 2010 I got my certificate for teaching German as a foreign language.
After that, I taught in Brazil and then in the USA.
I taught in multiple schools, colleges, online institutions etc.

Grammar

I love grammar.
Having worked as a language teacher for so many years, I can say that I pretty much got an explanation for every grammar issue in English, French, Italian and German ;)

Italian

I studied Italian in high school for 5 years and another 4 years in college. After that, I worked as translator and adult ed teacher in Europe, Brazil and the USA.

Italian is my passion. I love the country and have travelled there many times. I love the people because we share similar views and opinions. I love the food, literature, music...
Teaching Italian is teaching the culture as well

TOEFL

I am an experienced ESL teacher. I had to take the TOEFL myself as a requirement to study here and prepared several students for it.

In 2010 I received my certificate for teaching English as a foreign language.

Excellent tutor.

Julia is an outstanding teacher. She presents the material in a way that is very conducive to learning a foreign language. There is structure in her lessons and she has patience plus openness in helping you to learn the material. Julia has a special gift for tutoring people in the challenges of trying to learn another language.
