About Jennifer

Having changed my major from Biology to French, I had ESL Conversation Partners and that was my first experience with tutoring. Then, I was an intern at a Catholic Preschool teaching French and German. In May of 2001, I received my first B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

Since I wanted to teach, I applied to participate in the AGABUR Exchange Program, headed by a Professor from UCONN and based at Friedrich-Schiller University in Germany. I chose DaF as my major and IWK as my minor. There were also some French and translation classes that I took as well. A requirement before classes as a Haupthoererin at Friedrich-Schiller University was to take two German language month-long courses. I did my first one at Friedrich-Schiller University and my second one at University of Potsdam. Before leaving Germany, I took a DSH Course at the University of Mannheim and passed the test. The DSH is kind of like the TOEFL exam in English-speaking countries.

Upon return to the U.S, I was unable to find a job teaching German, so I enrolled in a second degree program at Old Dominion University, where I graduated in 12/2004. Still no job in education, so I applied to a Fulbright Austria Fremdsprachenassistentin Program and was accepted. I was in EFL Classrooms either teaching or co-teaching for the maximum of two years as well as studying Lehramtstudium Deutsch/Englisch at the University of Salzburg, being first admitted as Bachelorstudium Germanistik acquiring some credits, but no degree.

Then, I returned to the U.S and still thought that with that experience in a classroom in Austria as well as my credits from the University of Salzburg, I could work in a classroom in the U.S. I found out that as a sub for Virginia Beach Schools, I would need to be certified, so I started a Master's in Education Concentration TESOL at ODU in 05/2009. I received the M.S.Ed degree in 05/2011.

Then, I worked for a total of one year, 2 months, and 2 weeks, and 2 days in education in the U.S and have been unable to obtain further employment in education because I taught like they do in Germany and Austria. For that reason, I am hoping to become a tutor.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Master's in Education Concentration TESOL from Old Dominion University and was a Fremdsprachenassistentin for EFL in Austria for two years, where I created lessons based on the EFL Teachers' topics and either taught or co-taught the lesson.
During my first B.A., I was an ESL Conversation Partner, working with Japanese or Italian ESL Students.

German

During my first B.A. at UNC-Wilmington, I minored in German. Then, did a second degree program, where I received a B.A in German from Old Dominion University.

I have also spent a total of three years and four months in German-speaking countries as a graduate student. The first program was AGABUR, where I studied DaF and IWK. Then, I completed a monthlong course to prepare for the DSH, which is the German version of the TOEFL and passed the test. A few years later I returned to another German-speaking country, this time via Fulbright Austria, where I was a Fremdsprachenassistentin in Austrian Secondary Schools. I also took teaching courses as well.

In 2011, I completed my M.S.Ed Concentration TESOL from Old Dominion University and was able to add German to my teaching certificate. I taught German in the U.S for one year and two weeks.
