About Zachary

Hallo!

Based in Hyde Park, Chicago, I am a tutor who loves to meet new students who are excited to learn German. Whether you're brand new to it, or maybe you have several years under your belt, German speaking is best honed through a mix of conversation and exercises. Using whatever textbook/exercise book you prefer, I'll help you be more confident speaking in class, answering questions, preparing for a skills test and much more.
Perhaps you're planning to visit a German-speaking country? Fantastic! I lived in Germany as an exchange student. Brushing up on your German speaking with me will make your trip that much more rewarding. I'm always excited to meet a new German speaker! We can work online, or I can come help you where you feel most comfortable. Everything to put you in the best position to succeed.

Schönen Tag noch!

Zachary

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

German

After receiving the highest marks on my AP German test in high school, I was selected by Rotary International to take part in their student exchange program. I lived in Nordenham, Lower Saxony, for eleven months from 2005-2006. I still keep in touch with my host family, and my specializations are High German pronunciation and conversational speech. I also can do a little East Friesland dialect for fun.

Literature

I am an avid consumer of English fiction and nonfiction. I am also a produced playwright. A play I wrote, entitled This House Believes was produced in 2014 by Oracle Productions. In 2015 the play was remounted by the Chicago Parks District Theater on the Lake program. in 2016 the play was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson award in the category of Best New Adaptation.
