About Franziska

I was born in 1984 in Munich, Germany. After graduating from high school I spent a year volunteering in France and Switzerland. After that I began my studies at the University of Erfurt and got a BA in English and History and a Master of Education there. For four years I taught in different schools from grade 5 to 10. I spent two of these four years in a special needs school. Then, in September 2015 love made me come to Lubbock, TX.

Now, I am here and looking for a job that will allow me to do what I love most: to teach, to tutor, to educate and to give my students confidence and joy.

I am a native German speaker. English is my second language. Now, it might seem that this disqualifies me as a ESL teacher to some degree but I believe that the opposite is true. A person who speaks English as a second language often knows the language and its many rules better than a native speaker can. Such a person also knows about the struggles and the problems that learning English can bring. Therefore I believe that I am uniquely qualified to teach English as a second language.

I am a native German speaker. Unlike others my German is accent and dialect free. I am also fluent in English which allows me to tutor my students in the language they need in order to make progress. I also volunteered as a German teacher for refugees from the Middle East for about four years.

I am a certified teacher and I have worked at the elementary level with special needs kids. Other than that, I volunteered as a German teacher for refugee children from the Middle East for about four years.

I have a BA in History and taught it as a subject in various schools for four years.

I worked at a special needs school for two years where I provided highly student tailored support to ensure that each child had a safe learning environment.

I have a very different upbringing from most of the tutors you will find in the Lubbock area. Growing up in the center of Europe made me very open-minded. I am eager to teach and share my knowledge and experiences and just as eager to learn.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
