About Ursula

Hello,

I am a native of Germany, however, I have lived in the United States for many years. Additionally, I have traveled extensively while working for an International High School Student Exchange Program and had much interaction with high school students during those years. I have escorted students to the US and to Germany, so they could spend a year abroad. I have given those students a lot of help by explaining to them what it would be like to live in other countries and learn about the different cultures. I very much enjoy working with and tutoring young people. However, I have also tutored several adults.

In my opinion there is a substantial advantage in being a native of a country when tutoring in that language - pronouncing words correctly is one. I am known for my patience which is needed when teaching another language - which is not something that gets acquired overnight. I love watching students make progress.

I am looking forward to meeting you in the near future and passing on my knowledge in being fluent in German to you.

Thank you.
Ursula

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 worked for an International Student Exchange organization for more than 15 years. During those years, I tutored many of the foreign students in English.
