About Viktoria

I attended Brooklyn College for grad school, earning a Master’s degree in English Literature. This followed my previous studies at Brunel University in London, which culminated in a Postgraduate Certificate in Contemporary Literature and Culture. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of York in the U.K. and an International Baccalaureate diploma from the Munich International School. My international education in Germany, Britain, and the United States has prepared me for the exciting challenges and rewards of sharing my bilingual English/German expertise through teaching and tutoring.

I spent two years teaching German in grades 1 – 5 at the Munich International School. I'm familiar with the philosophies and demands of the IB program, from the students’ as well as the teachers’ perspective. In addition, I’ve taught English as a Second Language at an academic summer camp for teenagers in Germany. Currently, I organize and lead a creative writing group for adults with my husband at our home in Brooklyn. Over the course of my professional and academic trajectory, tutoring has supplemented and enriched my experience. Whether helping a fourth grader with intermediate-level German homework or guiding a high school senior in writing an analytical essay on Flannery O’Connor’s short stories, I relish the chance to delve into the given subject matter and inspire enthusiasm and success. My passion is rooted in – though not exclusive to – languages, literature, and writing. I tutor all levels of English and German, with a preference for literary and creative genres. One-on-one tutoring presents my ideal teaching scenario: it allows me to provide my undivided attention, to tailor my approach to the student’s needs, and to become a supportive and compassionate mentor all around. I strive to engage my student through a dynamic and friendly approach, and to make learning effective and fun. Besides reading and writing, I love live music shows, movies, making photo projects, skiing, the ocean, the night, ice cream, dogs, good company, long conversations, and traveling.

Excellent experience learning German — After starting to learn German on my own using a popular audio course, I wanted to take the experience to the next level with "live" conversation and tutoring with a native German speaker. Viktoria and I worked together twice a week for several weeks and it has increased my knowledge, understanding and confidence far better than I could have achieved studying on my own. And it was far more effec ...
