About Deborah

I am an experienced English teach with an ESL certificate and over six years of experience teaching all aspects of English including grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, writing, and pronunciation. Prior to becoming an English and German instructor, I worked for 20 years as an Internal Auditor in Banking and Insurance. My duties as an Internal Auditor included writing reports for upper management and Boards of Directors. I often tutor adults that need help with business English. I have experience teaching adult speakers of many different languages, experience teaching English to German teenagers in an English Camp every summer in Germany, as well as experience teaching children.

German is my second language. I studied German in college and have continued to improve my German language skills and my knowledge of the culture with annual visits to Germany. I have experience teaching German to the English speaking employees at several German owned organizations in the Charleston area. I have an excellent understanding of the difficulties of German grammar and, since German is my second language, can help learners apply techniques that helped me when I was learning this very difficult language.

I love teaching English and German and enjoy working with people. I especially enjoy working with people from other cultures and I use a fun, interactive approach to maximize learning. I have experience teaching classes of up to 12, individuals on a one-to-one basis and families - parents and children together and enjoy all of these different types of "classrooms". I would love to work with you or your child.
