About Aileen

Hi, my name is Aileen, and I am a native German with a passion for teaching German and English as well as computer-related subjects.
I hold an MA in English Linguistics and a master in library and information science (MLIS). I currently work as the Knowledge Management/Monitoring & Evaluation Specialist at The DHS Program.
I am a patient teacher with a casual teaching style: your comfort and -more importantly- your progress is my main concern.
Today's world demands a lot from every individual, so I understand if an appointment can't be kept, if progress is slower than expected, or if you are just having a bad day. I am sensitive to these issues and try to work around obstacles whenever possible.
I believe that a good education is vital for success and happiness in life. In my opinion, the basic abilities to communicate and to read critically are basic skills that everyone should have, and I try to communicate this to my students.

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.

English

I have an MA in English Linguistics as well as lots of experience in writing and public speaking. I am a published author and have spoken at conferences and other events.
Public speaking can be scary, but it does not have to be!
Give it a try, and discover what you are capable of.

German

I am a native German speaker who enjoys teaching kids and adults alike.
I adapt my lessons to your needs: just the basics for a vacation or complex business lingo ... the choice is yours!

Microsoft Excel

I have been teaching MS Excel for a few years now.
I taught groups at a public library as well as individuals (beginners/advanced students).
Excel is a great program, and I make it fun to learn.

Public Speaking

In my role as board member of the Special Library Association as well as my jobs, I am experienced in delivering speeches and lectures to a variety of audiences. I know what it takes to capture their attention and keep them focused while making the task fun for the speaker (and less nerve-racking, too).

SAT Writing

With a master's degree in English linguistics, my work with clients focuses on improving their writing as well as reading/comprehension skills.
I'll show you how to first write down your thoughts and THEN turn them into a well-written and thought-out essay.

Web Design

I used to work as a web developer for the National Agricultural Library. I am familiar with Drupal and other web development software, but I can also code from scratch. I am familiar with HTML, PHP, CSS, etc. I developed a web site for a private client using WordPress, which is also a great and easy to learn blogging tool.

Knowledgeable and Patient

The girls really enjoyed their time with Aileen. She is knowledgeable but yet able to explain to two tween girls. The girls learned a lot but still have many more to learn from her.
