About Sophie

I'm a German national living in the US. I have experience tutoring children between the ages of 3 and 12 during multiple Internships in Germany and two years of working as a nanny in Virginia. I have also been tutoring adult and college students for the past years. I can provide additional material for German tutoring since I am also helping some of my friends learn the language. I have an extensive collection of German books and teaching materials corresponding to grade levels 2-5, including flash cards and workbooks. I also have a large number of German audio books, mostly fiction, to help with listening skills and pronunciation. Subjects of the audio books include fairy tales, mystery and crime stories, as well as general literature. I also recently added a number of dual-language books to my materials.

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.

German

I have tutored all levels of German students, both online and in person. I worked with a variety of textbooks and workbooks, as well as different online programs and applications for phones and tablets.

Great Tutor

Sophie's a great tutor and as we get more advanced, for example, studying the subjunctive, she's very useful. Her English is very good and she can explain subtle differences in the language. Later: Just finished up with my last lesson with Sophie before I leave for Berlin. She is a great tutor, very smart, very pleasant to work with and very patient. Highly recommended.
