I have dual citizenship as well as voting rights: German and American. Almost half of my life was spent growing up in Germany and traveling throughout much of Europe and to one city of Russia.
Frequently - and even at home as a Northern German living in Munich until the year 2000 - I assisted many American, Canadian and French travelers, when they lacked lingual, customs' and cultural knowledge about the country, who otherwise would have been helplessly stranded.
Drafted into two armies, I was able to diplomatically serve in just the US Army overseas during the Vietnam era.
Among my specialties in the Office of the Adjutant-General were international law, intelligence service (two successful military missions behind the former Iron Curtain and the apprehension of two spies).
I taught for the German Consulate for 2.5 years, after which I decided to work in the international aerospace programs, both here and in France, since I am technically also fluent in French.
For about two years in Europe I taught German and Russian for the University of Maryland, and then I taught German, French and Russian to American sixth grade and later to the secondary school levels.
In addition to teaching, I also worked as a language tutor while working full time in the computer hardware and software industries in Germany (near my church in Munich and in the USA.
Then, I worked as a Senior Technical Writer for various hardware and software firms in the USA, and France until the year 2004. I have dual citizenship as well as voting rights: German and American. Almost half of my life was spent growing up in Germany and traveling throughout much of Europe and to one city of Russia.

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.
I've taught [advanced] French in night classes for 3 years in college; I served as an Army
translator/interpreter for 2.4 years previously as well as an aerospace French [technical] interpreter for 3 French engineers and as aSr. Technical Writer. Separately, I tutored French evenings.
I would like to be certified in this subject (Russian), because of a rather lengthy experience at both the professional level and at the university level. First of all, I began to be interested in Russian when I was a 17-year old in Northern Germany.
I began learning Russian (with Russian textbooks and through verbal practice) at the age of 17 years. I continued learning technical Russian for aerospace and for biochemical research, so that I could technically communicate with Russian scientists and Russian biochemists, in addition to doctoral candidates in biochemical research at the university.
I also taught Russian for almost two years in France as well as in the USA for about nine years.
