Hello! I am a classically trained American professional singer who studied at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, the birthplace of Mozart, where all music classes were conducted in German, by famous German teachers. Two years later, I joined German National TV/Deutsche Welle as a bilingual reporter, moderator, spokesperson, editor, and writer for TV. I worked at this job for 10 years. The program was carried in the U.S. on PBS stations in the U.S. and in 87 countries around the world. I was often a spokesperson for private companies such as Deutche Bank, Commerz Bank and Barklay Banks doing international voice-over work for American clients. Later I moved to Thailand, where I taught German classes to aspiring singers and actors at Silapakorn Univ. in Bangkok. I have taught privately as well, and thanks to the varied nationalities of my students, eventually developed several tricks and "short-cuts" that I use successfully to help students MASTER the art of speaking German!
As a professional singer and stage personality in Europe, I can assure you that these IDEAS WORK! If you need German lessons on any level, I can help you easily and painlessly to do this... WHILE MAKING THE LESSONS FUN! I hope to hear from you! Sincerely, Your new German Teacher Hello!

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.
Getting a secure METHOD for taking these important exams is ESSENTIAL! The study tricks and ideas you learn from me will be of use to you for the rest of your life, whether you go to law school later, or become a teacher or a CEO! I have been trained in American AND European schools, and my experience and background are by no means limited! I would suggest sessions of not more than 2 hours at a time! I hour is OK but if we hit a "patch" that really needs extra work and concentration, more time may be needed! 2 hours with small breaks of 5-10 min. works for many students. You must let me know what you are comfortable with! ALSO, most importantly, you must have a quiet area where we can work undisturbed during this time! Sound OK? Please let me know ASAP, as I am getting several offers for this kind of work! Your profile and personality sound like we could work well together! Hope to hear from you! Sincerely, Charlene H.
