Hello!

My name is Barbara M. I was born in Hamburg, Germany and raised in Japan. I have been tutoring for the past six years in Cape Coral, Florida. I grew up in Japan and came to the USA after I met my husband. Having a Japanese mother and German father meant I was surrounded by both languages, becoming fluent in both. I earned my IB in German in high school and took the O-level exam at Oxford University in London. I passed the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test at level N2 and am studying for the N1.

Tutoring is my passion. Learning languages can be challenging, but I try to adjust my lesson plan according to my student’s need. Through my years of tutoring I had students telling me how they were so excited that they were able to use what they learned from me. I do set goals for students and try to lead them with positive encouragement. Each student has their own pace of learning Japanese or German. In my lesson I use books, magazines, and songs; if a student has material, I will implement it in their class. I give homework since I firmly believe students need to review what they learn and hopefully it will lead them to ask more questions. I also provide review sheets, depending on the student’s skills.

I hope to see you soon!

Thank you for your feedback. Your daughter is a very sweet, intelligent girl and I enjoy teaching her Japanese.

Great Tutor

Barbara has been a great tutor for all of our three children in the age of four, nine and eleven. She teaches them in ESL. She is always on time, the materials she provides is very useful and helpful. Children like her a lot. We will book her again. Thank you, Barbara!

Tutor responded:

Thank you Nadja. Your children are very lovely and it was a pleasure teaching them.

Great!!

I really enjoyed our first lesson. The way Barbara explained the language helped me understand a lot about how to read, write, and speak it. I'm looking forward to more lessons and have already learned a lot just on the first one.
