About Michele

I have taught and tutored at many levels and know about the importance of the right atmosphere of trust. Most students need to forget about their established learning habits by relearning how to get ready for the mirth of learning. This makes them fit for success.

My assignment is inspiring students for the ability to learn even tough looking subjects without fear.

My native language is German and Luxembourgish. I tutored German, French, English, Math, Physics and Chemistry as well as American and World History. I also cultivated Intercultural Etiquette for high level manager and educated employees in Business Administration, MS Office, Budgeting, Marketing and Public Relations.

I am used to train up to thirty students of all ages at a time. Many years in business development provided the long-term experience and proves my record of success as consultant to governments, profit and non-profit organizations, with computer skills conducting financial and live-voice presentations.

I am a very happy tutor, being proud of your daughter. After 10 hours of intensive work she now earns excellent grades in French and improved her learning skills. I absolutely loved working with her.

Congratulations! Three and a half month of ambitious co-operation, my student reaped the fruits of our labor. She passed her speaking, reading and writing exams with impressing grades almost even to a native German. I am so proud of you!

"Very patient, well organize, great attention to details."

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

As a Museum Assistant of Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation I am teaching hands-on American history. JYF is a Virginia Government Educational facility. I am educating student groups from 3rd grade up to college and adults from all over the world. Group sizes are 25 to 30 students plus their teachers and parents.

Elementary Math

I studied Math, Physics and Chemistry at the University of Cologne and tutored students. Later I also coached managers.
My approach to my students is first learning about their interests and then I use these subjects as an avenue to open up their minds and eyes to Mathematics.
English is my second language and I have speaking it for more than 30 years.

English

As Public Relations expert and Business Journalist, English is my business language since more then 30 years; also e.g. coaching manager in English
I am working for global player companies, in Formula 1 motorsport, and for governments and it's agencies.

German

German is my native language. I earned my German "Abitur" degree in German and German literature.
Besides German, Luxemburgish and French are my home country's languages. English is my "business language" since +20 years.

To me it is important facilitating the pleasure of learning and speaking a new language which makes it easier to comprehend new challenges.

Prealgebra

I earned my degree in Math at the University of Cologne and tutored students of all grades.

Public Speaking

During my engagement in Formula 1 as PR consultant for sponsors, I routinely had to speak to large groups of people and/or to press people about the involved company(s) business as well as their commitment to team(s) and motorsport.
My assignement in para-diplomacy also requires public speaking, presenting concepts to different groups of people.
At the University of Cologne, law school, I earned a certificate in Rhetoric in Public Speaking.

Highly knowledgeable, patient, and relatable to each-and-every-student — Michele recognized me when we met for our first session due to our communication prior to even meeting - she saw the "carry on" tag on my backpack from my recent flight home and knew it was me. I was instantly at ease and after getting introductions and sharing settled, she was extremely organized and ready to begin. Her initial method was to first get an understanding for my learning style, and t ...
