About Annika


Bio

My first tutoring experience took place in first grade when I was asked to assist a newly arrived Vietnamese girl with her English. I myself had learned English when I came to the United States at three years of age and could relate well to some of the issues the newcomer was facing. Perhaps genes played a bit of a role as well as my maternal grandfather had been a teacher in post-war Germany.

My first tutoring experience took place in first grade when I was asked to assist a newly arrived Vietnamese girl with her English. I myself had learned English when I came to the United States at three years of age and could relate well to some of the issues the newcomer was facing. Perhaps genes played a bit of a role as well as my maternal grandfather had been a teacher in post-war Germany.

Since then, I have tutored and taught foreign languages in a multitude of informal and formal settings, and in various countries. Starting with English and German, and eventually Spanish, French, and Russian, I have enjoyed instructing students of a variety of ages for many years.

In 1990, I complete my bachelor of arts in Russian Studies from George Mason University. In 1993, I returned to the States from a short sojourn in Europe to complete my master's degree in secondary education with a focus on teaching English as a Second Language. After one year of working in a public school setting, I began teaching privately and on a freelance basis for a number of private companies and language schools and the government.

I am also an experienced, freelance translator and interpreter. For the past 20 years, I have worked with a variety of clients, including LanguageOne, Willis Inc., Kyoto News Agency, GEO Centers, MELCO Painting, the German Embassy Washington D.C., Ludwig & Robinson PLLC, Verbalink and a variety of other private clients.
