I am a retired teacher with experience and certification in elementary, secondary, and college level education.

I have majors in English, German, and an M.A.T. degree. I most recently taught at SVSU and tutored in German and English for an international relocation company where I worked with both children and adults teaching German to Americans and English to Germans. I also have three years' experience tutoring using Facetime.

I enjoy working with all ages and I seek to foster a love of ideas and learning in students. Extensive travel in Europe and America has fueled my enthusiasm for introducing people to customs and culture. My interests in a wide range of topics, and participation in a variety of activities and hobbies helps me relate to people from many backgrounds.

I can be flexible with scheduling and location for work. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy but am happy to work out make-up sessions. I welcome feed-back from those I am serving and seek to make customers satisfied and successful.

Rhonda, 49 lessons with Ruth

Thorough and Patient Tutor

Ruth is very patient and full of praise during her tutoring sessions with my daughter. Ruth knows the language, both written and spoken, and the German culture, so the experience has been well-rounded so far. We would highly recommend Ruth.
