About Birgit

With my Master’s Degree and years’ experience in high school, community college and university level education, I believe that I am a great tutor to middle level, high school, and college level students. My educational background and professional experiences will allow me to tutor all levels of German language and culture in addition to my core subjects of World History, American History, US Political Institutions, World Religions, Psychology, and Sociology as well as Contemporary History, Holocaust, and Western Civilization I and II—all either honors or regular.
I always look to improve writing and reading requirements, have established cross-curriculum activities (Mathematics, English, History) to advance students' critical thinking and analysis abilities, and developed an entire Holocaust curriculum--with textbooks and objective formats, now widely used throughout southern Palm Beach County, Florida.
Throughout the years, I have used many forms of multimedia to facilitate my lessons more effectively. From the use of the document camera to the selection and incorporation of appropriate on-line illustrations, I found that alterations between lecture and visuals make it easier for students to retain scholarly materials and concepts as the visuals reinforce the rhetoric.

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.

Social Studies

I am holding a current Social Studies Teaching Certificate from the State of South Carolina. I have taught social studies for over fifteen years in either high schools or colleges. I am always up-to-date on my subject matter.

Study Skills

I have been a social studies high school teacher and college teacher for over 15 years. My instructions included study skills, note taking abilities and organization. Students contacted me after their graduation to let me know that the skills they learned in my class years ago still help them today.
