Bio

My love of teaching and tutoring French and German to students of all ages has given me personal satisfaction throughout much of my life. I have been fortunate to have had experience in teaching both of these languages for over 25 years to students ranging in age from 5 years old to high school age in both private and public school settings. I have also had the pleasure of teaching individuals who became expatriates. All my students experience success by obtaining in-depth knowledge of French...

My love of teaching and tutoring French and German to students of all ages has given me personal satisfaction throughout much of my life. I have been fortunate to have had experience in teaching both of these languages for over 25 years to students ranging in age from 5 years old to high school age in both private and public school settings. I have also had the pleasure of teaching individuals who became expatriates. All my students experience success by obtaining in-depth knowledge of French or German through a review of schoolwork including grammatical and cultural explanations, as well as practice in conversation and comprehension. Depending upon the situation, I would gladly provide additional homework or worksheets as supplementary material.

I was raised in a bilingual home where German was spoken. It was in this setting that I realized the importance of knowing more than one language, and I take pride in the fact that I continued to pass this tradition on to my own children and grandchildren. I speak German daily with my family and maintain my fluency in French through active conversational, speaking and cultural groups, as well as French television. Through exposure to other cultures by speaking and studying multiple languages, I have found that one becomes a more open-minded worldly individual, an achievement that contributes to success in life. I look forward to working with you and providing the tools for success in your learning endeavor.

French

I feel that I am extremely qualified to tutor both French and German not just because I have done extensive coursework in these areas at the university level, but also because I have both taught and tutored these subjects for over 25 years. In the classroom setting, my students enjoyed the learning process and respected the importance of studying a language other than English. At the same time, all of the students whom I tutor have increased their grades by at least two or more levels. I do believe that the positive rapport that I develop with my students is due to the joy and comfort level that I convey to them during the teaching process. This in turn encourages them to study and ultimately improve their level. Finally, I strive to have my students enjoy the learning process and ultimately experience success.
German

German

Aside from my teaching certification and extensive coursework taken in German both at a cultural, literary and grammatical level, I have also had immersion experience. Because I was raised in a German speaking home, I feel totally comfortable conversationally as well. My love of teaching comes through with each student that I tutor by developing a comfortable setting in which to learn. It is perhaps this comfort level that encourages student self-confidence, as well as the desire to excel consequently producing a positive learning experience.

She is very energetic and enthusiastic about teaching and wanting her students to succeed. I definitely recommend her.
