About Kathrin

I am a native German who has been living in New York for over a year. I can describe myself as a dedicated and patient professional with teaching experience in higher education level. Among others, I taught a class on scientific writing to university students. What I most enjoy about teaching is to help my students improve, not only because they have to but because they want to. Learning should be fun!
I specialize in tutoring my native language – German. My goal as a language teacher is to build up the student's vocabulary and grammar skills so he or she will gradually be able to communicate effortlessly. I teach total beginners as well as advanced students.
In addition to teaching German I also proofread papers in English as well as in German. Having published several scientific papers myself, I am very detailed and thorough and do not only focus on grammar, spelling and overall expression, but also on contents and completeness of the paper.
Last but not least, being a Civil Engineer involves maths more than anything. It has always been my favorite subject in school, thus, I want to pass this on to my "little" students, teaching them elementary maths in a way that is both effective and fun!
So let's begin! I am looking forward to teaching you or your child!

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.

German

The best way of learning a foreign language is by communicating with a native speaker. I am a German citizen who has been living in New York City for over a year now. I can describe myself as a dedicated and patient professional with teaching experience on higher education level. Among others, I have been teaching a class on scientific writing to university students in Germany.
My method of teaching German is to first build up basic grammar and vocabulary skills and then advance through communication.

Proofreading

I was responsible for teaching a class on scientific writing to university students and also prove excellent writing skills myself. During the last three years I have published scientific articles in German as well as in English.

I am very detailed and thorough when proofreading anyone's papers and do not only focus on grammar, spelling and overall expression, but also on contents and completeness of the paper.
