About Rachel

I have extensive experience both as a tutor and as a translator of German. Besides providing academic support through research and translation, I can also read the older German manuscript styles and can assist in the reading and translation of old handwritten documents. In terms of teaching, I have 5 years of experience providing small class and one-on-one tutoring for homeschool students ranging from jr. to sr. high. Since I am not a strong believer in traditional textbooks, I crafted my classes around short readings (such as newspaper articles, song lyrics, etc.), cultural enhancements (history, geography, art), and grammar.

Besides my German endeavors, I also work as an academic and non-fiction editor. For the past 10 years, I have provided editing services to authors, graduate students, and professors with projects ranging from dissertations to lectures to published textbooks. I can help you polish your prose and learn how to vary and improve your writing skills.

As you can see, my professional life turns around the English and German languages. Please contact me if I can be of assistance with any needs you may have in these realms.

Very knowledgeable tutor!

I really enjoyed all of my sessions with Rachel. She was very helpful in correcting all of my mistakes. We started out by having a conversation in German, which helped my speak with greater fluidity. Then, we read through a very enjoyable book, that deepened my understanding of German.
