About Nora

I've been tutoring and teaching German to students of all ages since 2010, and studying the language personally since 2002. Whether you're a middle or high school student looking for a boost in your language class — a college student wanting to hone your skills — an adult learner about to travel abroad — a proficient speaker seeking a conversational partner — I'll work with you to figure out your goals, and design tutoring sessions to help you meet them. (I also have experience with the Dutch language.)

If you need help with English, I am also experienced in that field! My strengths lie particularly in grammar, essay writing (editing and giving you feedback on your writing), and literary analysis.

I am very excited about languages, literature, and learning. I would love to share my excitement with you and help you achieve your goals!
