Bio

I am a graduate of Lafayette College with a keen love of European (British and German) history, a love of language, and a deep passion for both the German language and culture. I studied German as one of two majors and have lived in Germany. I am passionate about others finding their love of the language and learning to use a foreign language as a means of expressing and learning more about themselves.

I am a graduate of Lafayette College with a keen love of European (British and German) history, a love of language, and a deep passion for both the German language and culture. I studied German as one of two majors and have lived in Germany. I am passionate about others finding their love of the language and learning to use a foreign language as a means of expressing and learning more about themselves. I have spoken German with near-native proficiency for over 10 years, had it as a major in college, and have both visited Germany and lived with family friends there. To me, German is a vehicle by which to express myself and to catalogue impressions of my surroundings in a non-traditional way; the ability to use a foreign language as a means of communication is unique, primarily because it forces us to be precise in our use of dictation to convey our thoughts. It is, above all, an exercise in both mental training and precision, and highly rewarding when one has successfully tamed a foreign language to augment their own personal expression. Above all else, it is one of life's most rewarding experiences.

As your tutor, I will push you to your limit; part of learning a foreign language effectively and well is to be placed in uncomfortable positions in which you perhaps may not comprehend the meaning of a sentence or of a particular grammar rule; that is all part of the process, and I will always make sure that you have the tools necessary to think on your feet and to take the small, yet vital, steps forward down the path of language acquisition. In terms of assignments, I will assign supplementary lessons to those from your teacher; never would I want to get too far ahead of lessons, so you can expect me to bolster what you are learning and to ensure you are thinking about it from a new and different perspective- with practice!
