About Lydia

I have been tutoring individual students for almost 20 years: it is my favorite occupation! I began teaching small groups of American children in Germany to speak German, and moved on to teaching German Realschule students to speak English. I have been tutoring French and German in western Pa. Since our return from Europe in 2002. I recently have begun tutoring Spanish as well.

I like tutoring so well because I can address students' particular needs, and also get to know them as students. Students learn differently, so as a tutor I can be flexible in a way that a classroom teacher cannot.

I lived abroad for a major portion of my life, so understand first hand how challenging it is to learn the language of a new country, and function successfully within it.

I have over ten years of classroom teaching, about evenly split between French and German. I have also tutored successfully for over 20 years in multiple languages.
