About Wiebke

I am an Occupational therapist by profession. This has helped me to develop very creative techniques to teach a variety of people of various age groups many new skills in the past. My strengths are my resourcefulness and my creativity. I have worked with children with severe disabilities as well as with the elderly and all the other ages in between. For the past 5 years I have worked at a freestanding outpatient clinic, specializing in hand therapy. Currently I work at the Lapeer District Library as a Substitute Library Assistant.

For the past 4 years I have taught 3- and 4-year-olds at our church's children's program on Wednesday nights, as well as 4-6-year-olds at the MOPS program every other Friday morning. In the past year, I also taught a group of 12 homeschooled students (aged 8-12), a course called "Exposure to the German Culture". I am currently tutoring one 15-year-old homeschooled student German. It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction to see anybody I come into contact with grow and learn. I love using hands-on learning and teaching methods, as I feel that this makes the learning experience for the children come alive.

I grew up in a German-speaking home and was born in South Africa. I enjoy new challenges and love traveling.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked as an occupational therapist for the past 10 years. One year I spent at Michigan School for the deaf, working with severely handicapped children of all ages. Several of these students had ADD/ADHD. I used various sensory integration techniques and prescribed home programs for these students.

Bible Studies

I have taught a variety of bible studies in the past 4 years. I have also instructed 3-6 year-olds at our church program for the past 5 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working with preschool aged children for the past 6 years as caregiver at MOPS and also as teacher to an average of 15 3-5 year olds at our church Wednesday night program. I have extensive background knowledge of child development as college course work.
