About Ursula

I am a German native familiar with various languages and cultures and I understand the difficulties you face when learning another language. I have lived in three different countries for extended periods of time and have taught countless students from all over the world. I have been living in the U.S. for sixteen years and I am currently teaching all classes online but would also be willing to teach at a mutually acceptable location upon special request.

After completing my formal education as an interpreter/translator in Munich, Germany, I moved to Austria and worked for the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency headquartered in Vienna, Austria. In 1999, I married an American citizen and have since been living in the United States. I have worked in both international and local government as well as the corporate world and have many years of experience as a private German and English (ESL/EFL) tutor. I would love to help you with your German or English language studies and find great satisfaction in improving your ability to express yourself in a foreign language.

Though I try to be flexible with my time whenever possible, I do have a minimum of a 24- hour cancellation policy. Ask about special rates for 1.5-hour lessons!

I look forward to helping you achieve your language goals. Please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange a lesson. Upon request, I am also available for a free consultation meeting in advance to the lesson.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have been living in the US for 17 years. but I am a German national and have had to learn English as a Second Language just like you. I am familiar with the difficulties students face when learning English as a Foreign or as a Second Language. I have been teaching languages for many years and I am currently teaching many different students from all over the world and at many different levels. Some of them are practicing English for their job, for their studies, for various tests, job interviews, or for travel and general purposes. I can help you!

German

My special education as a translator/interpreter enables me to go beyond just speaking German as my native language, I am able to understand students and their difficulties in learning the language and have successfully helped many students reach their goals.
