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 in elementary, middle and high school respectively.

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.

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.

Professional, flexible and intuitive

I hired Claudia for business group sessions with my team to help them gain more confidence when traveling to Germany for work. She asked all the right questions up front and tailors her lesson plan to their needs which are more conversational in nature. She is flexible with our busy work schedule and shows genuine enthusiasm in her demeanor for our group of 4-5. They loved her!

Michelle, 5 lessons with Claudia

Cares about helping me meet my goals

At our first meeting, I was happy that Claudia asked about my goals and i believe she will guide our future sessions to meet said goals. I was very impressed with her guidance of my pronunciation. I know I'm in good hands.

Alison, 11 lessons with Claudia

Best Ever

My son is 2nd year German, Claudia has been able to fill in a lot of gaps in instruction that my son doesn't get out of his German class, She has been wonderful, wish we had found her earlier in the year.

Cindie, 9 lessons with Claudia

Superbly organized teaching of difficult areas of German language

Claudia is an excellent teacher. She has created superb meaty handouts which cover critical areas of the German language, such as declension of articles and adjectives. She has the ability to focus on what is most important, given the learner's needs. I plan to continue working with Claudia even after my upcoming trip to Germany.

Richard, 9 lessons with Claudia

Excellent!

Claudia was fantastic with my son. He finally feels like there is someone that can help him through German 2. Thank you so much Claudia looking forward to working with you more!!

Mason, 12 lessons with Claudia

Great help

Claudia has done a great job for my middle school son in Algebra. My son enjoys her lessons. Claudia is very caring, patience and really wants my son to learn. Also very accommodating in meeting locations.

The *best* way to learn German!

I am SO lucky to have found Claudia! Her patience, communication, knowledge, and teaching are top-notch. She listened to my objectives and created a plan that has worked perfectly with my goals. She understands what is needed to learn a foreign language and effectively, at that. Working with her for over five months, I have grown *incredibly* in my ability to both understand and participate in this language. In addition, I've learned so much about German culture and it has made me appreciate the lessons and this experience that much more. After trying and being disappointed in other programs to learn German, I am so very thankful for my sessions with Claudia.

Excellent Tutor

We have met with Claudia twice. She is very easy to get to know and makes my husband and I feel like we really can learn German. Because she was raised in Germany and visits often she is very up to date on all the changes going on in Germany. She makes the lesson time fun while we are learning. Claudia has been patient but keeps us challenged and on task.
