At age 30, I married and moved to the United States. My husband and I currently live in Vancouver/WA and have four boys.

Herzlich Willkommen!

I am a native German speaker, born and raised in Germany; I completed my studies of Marketing and Environmental Management at a German University and worked as a Marketing Manager in Hamburg. At age 30, I married and moved to the United States. My husband and I currently live in Vancouver/WA and have four boys.

Teaching is my passion and I have been tutoring for over 30 years - first math to younger children while in High School, then math to fellow students while in college and later math plus German in the USA.

GERMAN: My experience includes translations (personal, academic and business subject matter) as well as tutoring classes from basic language concepts to social customs and traditions. I enjoy tutoring students of all ages and levels: from little toddlers being raised bilingual, students needing help with German classes to personal or business travelers preparing for their trip to German speaking countries.

MATH: My strength (and love!) is Algebra and everything leading up to it. From elementary school math through Algebra 2, I enjoy teaching kids the basic concepts and helping them see how logical (and yes, fun) math really is. As of recently, my sons have joined in and every now and then (if necessary and requested by students or parents) help out by explaining concepts on a "kid-to-kid" level.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Vielen Dank,
Claudia

English is my second language. I've gone through and passed the ESL requirements and exam a while ago (before immigrating into the US) and have worked on perfecting my English ever since. In addition I have tutored English (mainly in my native country of Germany) and am well aware of the differences between languages and the problems arising due to the variations in sentence structure, grammar, pronunciations etc.

Math is my passion. I especially like to teach young minds the basic concepts and strategies, all the while keeping it fun for them. I used to tutor math in high school to younger children and all throughout college to my fellow students (my undergraduate major was math, went on to graduate with MBA. Having four boys of my own in 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th grade respectively (all in advanced math classes, I am very familiar with the curriculum used as well as the (online and offline) resources available within the Vancouver and surrounding school districts.

Algebra 1

I love Algebra! It's logical and fun and, unlike geometry, not too much to learn by heart. Pre-Algebra and Algebra have been my favorite subjects to teach to students for the past 20+ years. I started in high school, tutoring to younger children and all throughout college to my fellow students (undergraduate major in math, finished with MBA). Currently I teach 5th grade within the Vancouver School District. I believe it is important to not simply show students the solutions, but instead enable them to independently find solutions themselves using all available resources. Having four boys of my own in 5th, 7th, 9th and 12th grade respectively (all in advanced math or IB classes), I am very familiar with the resources available as well as the math curriculum used within the Vancouver and surrounding school districts.

Claudia is wonderful

One of the best lessons yet. First, I love how willing Claudia is to answer questions. I collected a few this week and was really looking forward to getting her insight. I also love the exercise she created on the fly to help me with cases and adjectives—an area that hasn’t been as easily as I might have hoped. Claudia is fantastic!

Claudia is wonderful

I love how spontaneous Claudia is. She can take a single question and turn it into an entire, interesting lesson. It’s always fun to talk with her because we are always working toward my goal of getting more conversational. Today, my random question led us to an entire lesson that covered everything from birthday etiquette to vaccine protocols here and abroad. Claudia ist wunderbar.

Claudia is a wonderful teacher she truly loves teaching and especially answering questions. Every week she shares her passion with me and, I’m sure, all her students. Thank you, Claudia!

Claudia is wonderful

What I most appreciate about Claudia is her patience. She is such a great teacher and makes me feel good about my efforts even when dealing with challenging topics like adjectives. Best if all, she inspires me to practice. Vielen dank, Claudia. Ich schätze Sie.

Great lesson

My lesson with Claudia is one of the highlights of my week. Even weeks like this one when I didn’t have a chance to do the homework, Claudia was patient, understanding and made the most of it. I am grateful to be learning a lot. Claudia is wonderful. Bis zum nächsten Mal.

I always learn so much

Another great lesson. Thank you! I appreciate the clarity around personal pronouns especially. See you next week. And the week after. And the week after that.

Great at explaining even the most confusion topics

Claudia is a great teacher. She’s incredibly passionate about helping and has a great way of explaining things. I look forward to our lessons. Thank you!

Perfect instructor

Claudia makes sure my pronunciation is on point. Also, she has lots of exercises that help a lot and she gives relatable examples. I love the books she recommends and her worksheets as well. I feel very comfortable and confident with her. By no means am I afraid to make mistakes around her. She also give me the chance to figure it out for myself, which is a major benefit.

Knowledgable, helpful and fun

Claudia does a great job adjusting her lessons to my needs and the places where I am more in need of assistances. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with.

Megan, 9 lessons with Claudia

Fun lesson

Claudia is the kind of tutor I need. She keeps things light hearted and moving at a decent pace. We’ve only had one lesson so far but I’m glad we connected. She also provides many materials and resources to assist in learning.
