Wayne State University (German)
Hi my name is Joseph and I currently reside in Tyson's. My favorite part about tutoring people in German is getting people to apply their knowledge rather than learning and retaining just long enough to pass the test, or get the grade. I hope to impart knowledge that remains with the student for a lifetime. My undergraduate degree in German is from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI and included a component where I spent a year living abroad in Munich, Germany. I've also worked for a few German companies as well. Because of these experience, I have excellent connections and resources for high school students looking to continue their German language education in college as well as college students looking to apply their German language knowledge to their future careers.
I participated in debate at both the high school and college levels so I offer tutoring in public speaking as well. I have policy debate experience at both the high school and college levels. I won multiple speaker awards during this time and placed highly at multiple tournaments.
I'm available to tutor at your residence or office within the Northern VA area as well as Bethesda.
I have great contacts with administrators of German study abroad programs and employees of German companies both here and abroad.
If you'd like to talk to me about arranging tutoring on a once or twice weekly basis, please get in touch. Hi my name is Joseph and I currently reside in Tyson's.

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 qualified to tutor people in public speaking because of my extensive experience. I debated for three years in high school and another year in college. While in high school I attend 2 month long summer programs at Michigan State University and the University of Michigan where I received instruction and coaching from some of the top college debaters and coaches from top US universities. While at Wayne State University, I studied under George Ziegelmueller, author of "Argumentation: Inquiry and Advocacy" and "Advancing in Debate: Skills & Concepts." and won additional speaker awards at the college level.
