About Rachel

The reasons we study a subject may be about anything but passion. Perhaps you want to improve your English-speaking skills for the workplace, for a test, or for an upcoming trip! Or you have to write an essay (in German, or in English), but you would rather be playing CS:GO. I'm here to alleviate the pain.

Maybe you do just really love languages and writing, and you have a pure desire to improve. Then I'm overjoyed!

For me, tutoring is about connection. Your personality, learning style, and goals are all important when I tailor our lessons together. This is what I love about tutoring. The opportunity to simultaneously get to know someone and assist them!

I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language for seven years. I've taught conversation, accent reduction, grammar, Business English, reading comprehension, and essay-writing. I have my BA in English Literature. Needless to say, I enjoy books and the English language.

I studied German through high school and university. I spent a year studying abroad near Luxembourg, and returned to Germany several times over the next few years. I speak German at a high intermediate level. I am not a native speaker, so I have insight into the time and effort it takes to acquire the language. I have tutored beginners in German, as well as intermediate speakers. I can assist you with grammar, idiomatic language, reading comprehension, and even pronunciation. Umlauts and the 'ch' sound are difficult to conquer, but you can do it!

It's important to remember that I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Regardless of who must cancel the class, I will offer a makeup session!

Also, please note that I only teach lessons online via Skype.

I look forward to hearing from you!
