About Christine


Bio

I have been tutoring and teaching German and French for 30 years, starting back in my native country, Switzerland, and since 1990 in the USA. I am currently teaching part-time at a community college.
I also have experience as an editor and proofreader.

I favor a communicative approach that takes into consideration your own interest in language, be it a focus on more receptive learning with cultural material, structure based learning with a textbook, or a combination of the two. I also have...

I have been tutoring and teaching German and French for 30 years, starting back in my native country, Switzerland, and since 1990 in the USA. I am currently teaching part-time at a community college.
I also have experience as an editor and proofreader.

I favor a communicative approach that takes into consideration your own interest in language, be it a focus on more receptive learning with cultural material, structure based learning with a textbook, or a combination of the two. I also have experience working with children; in fact I teach at a Saturday language school for German heritage speakers that is attended by children from German families.

I am also a certified College Admission Counselor (UCLA, Member of NJACAC) who can help to establish college lists, find educational and financial matches in college choices and help with applications and essay brainstorming/revising/editing. I have successfully given college essay writing workshops and I loved it!
