I am a German and French native speaker from Switzerland with the Texas Educator certifications for Latin, German, French and Italian. I currently teach at the public school. I am a member of the Junior Classical Leagues, member of ACTFL (American Council of the Teaching of Foreign Languages) and AATG (American Association of Teachers of German)

My teaching method includes cultural specific 'speech acts', cultural ways of communication in the context of basic grammar skills. I will help with test preparations for AP (advanced placement college credit) and official national and international proficiency tests A - C, for study abroad and visa/passport application.

I teach foreign language skills by keeping the student visually engaged and verbally interactive in a fun and relaxed learning environment. Having worked with newcomers with the LI program gave me a great experience and an excellent tool for teaching second language learners from different cultures.

Before I started my studies at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, I was admitted to the School of Applied Arts of Zurich. The curriculum for my Master's Degree included Math, Algebra and Calculus, Science and Latin certification (KMK Latinum), with majors in Italian language and literature, Art history and minor in History of French language. I wrote my thesis about the Self Representations of the Leaders and Advisors of the Italian Renaissance and their educational programs, that were based on the Antique sources and knowledge. During my studies, I taught French, Italian and Art at the Public High school in Switzerland and French at the Public High school in America. I home-schooled my two children through Elementary School, since I wanted them to learn several languages at early age and at the same time led a parent group teaching German and Art classes.

Great first lesson!

First lesson getting to know each other and then jumped right in to teaching the language. Brigitte is very personable and I hope to learn a lot from her.

Janet, 14 lessons with Brigitte

Excellent instructor/tutor

Brigette is an excellent Latin tutor. She offers both instruction, review of past work to better understand material that wasn't mastered and is able to review past material and explain new material. We highly recommend Brigette!

Kim, 15 lessons with Brigitte

Latin lifesaver!

Brigitte S. tutored my daughter for her Latin 2 class in High School. My daughter was in 9th grade. My daughter had done well in Latin 1, but struggled in Latin 2. It was great to have Brigitte's help to get her back on track. Brigitte proofed homework, projects and helped my daughter study for exams. We couldn't have made it through the year without her!

Awesome multitasker!

It has been four lessons for my two kids, aged 4 and 6, and Brigitte somehow manages to keep both engaged and excited! I am amazed that she is able to manage both effortlessly! I know that they both love both learning German and seeing Brigitte! She is so sweet and has a heart for teaching and kids!

Amazing Tutor

I met with Brigitte once a week for my Spring semester in Intermediate German (4th semester). She helped me so much with my German language and my grades improved dramatically. She is so helpful, knowledgeable and patient with her students and I always feel much better after leaving my lessons. I feel so much more prepared for my two advanced German courses next year and will absolutely continue to have her tutor and help me throughout the year. She is definitely amazing!
