About Timothy

My name is Tim and I lived nearly ten years in Germany. I went to an American high school in Rheinland-Pfalz and an American college in Munich where I immersed myself in the German culture. I also attended a German language institute in Munich where I successfully completed the 2nd highest level.

I also worked for a German clothing wholesaler in Munich for nearly two years as an office manager and was able to perfect my verbal and written language skills. I was responsible to speak with customers on the phone and in written correspondence. In January 2014, I returned from spending 9 months in Berlin where I did tutoring in ESL to German speaking students.

Also, many of my friends were German and I was able to learn the language the way it is spoken by the general public. My German is nearly accent-free and my grammar is excellent. I would love to have the opportunity to share this language and culture with you that I love so dearly.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I recently spent 9 months in Germany, of which approximately 3 of those I spent tutoring teenage German-speaking students English in a tutoring school. I enjoyed it immensely and was able to teach students mostly of Turkish heritage. I am patient and thoughtful and can easily tailor my lessons to your specific requirements.

German

My name is Tim and I just returned from Germany on 1/15/2014. I speak fluent German, nearly without accent and learned it from the beginning. My grammar and knowledge of daily conversational German is excellent. In Germany, I taught English to German-speaking students in a tutoring school and have experience tailoring lessons to meet the needs of the individuals. I am reliable and intelligent and many of the students I taught there told me they were sad to see me go. I would love to have the opportunity to discuss my qualifications and speak German with you if you also speak it.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor with a Great Sense of Humor!

I am glad I selected Timothy to be my German tutor. I am an adult who aspires to learn and become fluent in German. I was looking for someone who not only has in-depth knowledge of the language, but can also teach it in a way that would help both my conversation and grammar skills. I found Timothy to be just that. In addition, I liked that his style of teaching/ tutoring is very flexible in that h
