Bio

I am a German born and raised 56 year old woman with four children and many grandchildren. I have many hobbies, some of them are swimming, volleyball crocheting, reading historical romances for relaxation , listening to classical music and research into old and different cultures. I love watching others grasping new concepts, watching sudden comprehension light up their faces and I love to teach young and old about all the differences in people and countries that make this world so...

I am a German born and raised 56 year old woman with four children and many grandchildren. I have many hobbies, some of them are swimming, volleyball crocheting, reading historical romances for relaxation , listening to classical music and research into old and different cultures. I love watching others grasping new concepts, watching sudden comprehension light up their faces and I love to teach young and old about all the differences in people and countries that make this world so interesting and -at times challenging- but also beautiful.
I have some experience in tutoring . I helped my stepdaughter in her College basic Math class online as well as proofread her papers. Many times in my online classes I challenged the other students with new research to look at people and situations from a new angle.
I also visited schools in the surrounding areas while my children were smaller and talked to the students about the way I grew up, German history and taught them simple phrases.

I am born and raised in Germany, went to German schools, took courses considered the equal to an Associates degree in America. I majored the last two years of my German education in Music and English with minoring in Math and Religious Studies.

Since I had to learn English from the ground up growing up in Germany, following grammar rules and having a good vocabulary stands me in good stead in writing my papers. I also have several excellent recommendations from my Professors concerning my writing abilities.

I attended an Online College for my Bachelor's and my Master's Degree. I had to be very organized and focused in order to turn my assignments in on time. My GPA of 3.93 in my BS in professional Studies-Concentration on Communications, History and Diversity and a solid 4.0 in my Master of Science in Higher education with Concentration on College teaching and Learning is proof of my strong study skills, which I often tried to instill in my children and sometimes prodded my co-students to jump in more detailed in the discussion posts so we could get a fruitful discussion board in progress.

I love history of all kinds, Ancient the most. I think it is astounding, how much we still use from cultures centuries and sometimes millenniums ago. It is astonishing how many cultures survived ,and to find out what it took for them to succeed and how others came and went and looking into the reasons why they did not survive.

I am not sure what to add. I really enjoy instructing others and make them see how - at least almost- everything can be made interesting, as long as you can connect a seemingly uninteresting subject to some thing a student is interested in and intertwine the two to help in the understanding and comprehension.
