About Claudia Jane

I am a native English and German speaker. I love language and communicating. I was born in Germany, raised in Germany and England, and have been living in New York City for the past 22 years.

After having my daughter, I worked with children, starting at age 3 all the way up to 19 years of age. The lessons complemented the school's curriculum and included regular homework, project guidance, and test prep (11 years in the US, 4 years in Germany). To me working with children, teenagers and young adults is particularly rewarding, because I enjoy inspiring them to discover and do their best. I will also be happy to tutor grown-ups with regards to a move to Germany or from Germany here since I am truly at home in both continents.

What I think makes me an excellent German and English tutor is that I am a bilingual native speaker with a particular passion for language. I enjoy teaching and respect the student's individual process.

I look forward to hearing from you and am committed to giving my best.

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.

Public Speaking

I am qualified in this particular subject since I am a voice-over artist and an actress. I have had extensive training at HB Studio in the West Village in "Speaking Voice" by William Maloney, as well as receiving private training by Steve Harris and Thomas Wenke. I have held official positions in the parent body at various schools in Manhattan, as well as managerial positions, which have required for me to speak publicly to a group of people. In addition, I have been on stage in various productions in Germany as well as the United States.

Study Skills

I founded my own day care center when my daughter was born, and supervised and taught children ranging in age from 1 - 6 years. My daughter has a neurological learning disability, as well as dyslexia, and attention deficit disorder, so I learned hands-on for the past 19 years. I worked with my daughter in every subject my daughter was taught in school so that she could keep her joy in learning, her curiosity, and thirst for knowledge. I devised an individualized approach tailored to my daughter's particular needs so that she understood that she was intelligent but different. She finished high school as an honor roll student and is now attending college. My knowledge of the various learning approaches and understanding of the needs of each child, make it possible for me to tailor my learning style to the individual, boost their self-esteem and keep the joy in learning alive. The success follows.

Energetic, terrific, creative wonderful tutor. Great for my kid too! — CJ is really fantastic. My 9 year-old is more and more motivated to master German with each class. Each time she comes CJ has new and creative tools to teach, and she is very fun and open with my daughter and her two friends who share the class with her. We really couldn't be happier!! CJ is totally on top of all the organizational stuff and we never have to worry about details. This is a gr ...
