About Melanie


Bio

Hi,

My name is Melanie and I am a full time student at Nova. I am currently working on my associate's degree for Science, and later transferring to George Mason for my bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and Finance. I am originally from Germany, and I spent nine years there. I grew up with the language around me and still speak it at home all the time. As well I have also taken two German classes in high school for my electives. While in those German classes I often helped work...

Hi,

My name is Melanie and I am a full time student at Nova. I am currently working on my associate's degree for Science, and later transferring to George Mason for my bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and Finance. I am originally from Germany, and I spent nine years there. I grew up with the language around me and still speak it at home all the time. As well I have also taken two German classes in high school for my electives. While in those German classes I often helped work with the students around me. I was like a teacher's assistant. When students were confused about a certain exercise, I would work with them one-on-one to try to help them understand the material they were learning. As well I helped them prepare for exams by helping them review, listening and giving advice on the speaking sections.

Also my younger sister is in geometry at the moment and I often help her out with figuring out her math homework. We like to work on the specific problem that she is stuck on and making sure that she understands the basics to help her figure out the more complicated problems. As well I have also spent quite a few years tutoring at my former elementary school. There I tutored in math and technology for part of the robotics program. When they encountered a certain problem that they could not solve, I gave them the tools necessary for to figure out the problem without solving it for them. Knowing the basics first can make all the difference before trying to solve a far more complex problem.

Melanie is Great

My wife and I have been taking German lessons from Melanie for about 3 1/2 months and our progress has been substantial. We've settled into a system where we do homework (reading) during the week, and then during our lesson, we read the text in German and then translate to English. Melanie does a great job helping us with our pronunciation and our translation. For the last part of the lesson we talk extemporaneously about the reading to improve our conversational skills. Melanie's very attuned to when she should "dive in" and help us, and when she should wait and let us finish our thoughts. We always look forward to our sessions with Melanie - they're extremely enjoyable!
