About Robert


Bio

First, I taught a semester of Beginning German at the University of Florida. That was my first real experience in teaching for an extended period of time. After that, I gained a good deal of experience in language instruction by holding English courses for German students at the University of Mannheim.

I also gained a lot of experience in the comparative/contrastive grammar of German and English though my work as a German-into-English translator.

First, I taught a semester of Beginning German at the University of Florida. That was my first real experience in teaching for an extended period of time. After that, I gained a good deal of experience in language instruction by holding English courses for German students at the University of Mannheim.

I also gained a lot of experience in the comparative/contrastive grammar of German and English though my work as a German-into-English translator.

I studied German in the US and then attended the University of Mannheim as an exchange student, which was a fantastic opportunity to get continuously exposed to the language (and the local accent!).

In my view, a good, fundamental understanding and appreciation of the nut and bolts of German grammar is the key to attaining solid reading ability and, ultimately, good speaking proficiency. There is no way around this. Interactive methods are fine, but they work far better when a good foundation is in place. They will not work in a grammarless vacuum.

If you're looking for a tutor who knows how to help build a good grammatical foundation on which to improve your speaking and reading ability, please consider giving me a try.
