As a native German, I had to undergo a rigorous curriculum of language education in Latin, Ancient Greek, English and lastly, Spanish. I speak English on the level of a native speaker and am able to communicate between the grammar and syntax of German and English. As a speech pathology student, I can help you with accent reduction and understanding how to sound more native. I know that it is essential to begin speaking a language as soon as possible, so I compose meaningful vocabulary for the student to study- depending on his/her needs or preference.

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.
I am a native German speaker and moved to the United States at age 21; however, I feel absolutely comfortable in the English language and have produced excellent results in my college level English courses. I have experience in tutoring adults in German through an immersed approach that is intuitive, draws parallels with English and puts the fun back into learning German.
In order to be a foreign exchange student in the United States, I had to take the TOEFL test myself. Although I am now performing at the level of a native speaker, English was a second language for me; I am familiar with many of the hurdles that the English language presents.
When it comes to having a broad vocabulary in English, it is incredibly beneficial to know how to derive a word's meaning from its Latin or Greek roots. Throughout the English language these are highly pervasive and, if you know where to look, tend to repeat themselves. I can help students make meaningful connections with vocabulary and help them recognize patterns that make learning simpler and more fun.
I have achieved excellent results in college-level writing courses and much experience with improving essays. I know how to make writings more orderly and focused and am comfortable in a variety of different styles.
