I have a BS in Education Foreign Language and a BA in German. I prefer the TPR teaching method, and that students learn most from vocalizing in the target language.

I have a BS in Education Foreign Language and a BA in German. I prefer the TPR teaching method, and that students learn most from vocalizing in the target language. After student-teaching in the State College Area School District, I learned that I have a preference for the middle school age group, as they are more willing to take risks in learning than students in the latter stages of adolescence. Middle school age students are still open to playing games, which help them learn and have less fear of being embarrassed in front of their peers. I believe in the concept of a learning community, which requires rules, trust and mutual respect.

I learned German at the age of 16 by living with a family that spoke no English. I went on to complete a degree in German Literature and later a teaching degree. While studying to be a German teacher, I also tutored students who were learning German. I am patient, and understand the process of language learning with an emphasis on learning language with context.

Great Tutor

Kevin is a very patient tutor that has carefully adapted his style to my sons learning style to optimize the learning. Even on tough days he has gotten them to sit down and do their homework. He is highly motivated and has a great sense of humor, which my kids love. He is very good in teaching a non-native German speaker German Grammar and you can tell he really loves German.
