About Lena

We all have life stories that have led us to where we are right now. One of my earliest memories was when I was three and a Japanese friend of my parents had just visited us in Germany. After he left, my mother and I went to a playground and I ran up to a (to me) Japanese-looking mother and asked her if she knew our friend Kiyoshi. Even though I did not realize my faux pas at such a young age, the lady smiled at me and I truly began my intercultural journey.

I grew up bilingual in English in German to multicultural parents and I have always loved languages and learning. I went to a bilingual kindergarten in French and English in Canada. Once we moved back to Germany, I attended a German school until I was 13. After I moved to the United States in 2006, I studied Spanish for ten years. I loved the language so much that I gained a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish in college. I also minored in Biology and Psychology and, to my excitement, graduated Magna Cum Laude.

I am currently working on my Interdisciplinary Certificate in Disability and Diversity Studies and my Certification in Spanish Medical Interpretation. I am starting my entry-level Doctorate in Occupational Therapy next year!

Due to my international upbringing and life-long love of learning, I have obtained an understanding of a variety of study methods. Regardless of what has worked for me, we will discover how you learn best. I have also worked with individuals of all ages and have tutored Spanish, German, Biology, Psychology, English Composition, etc. so I am positive that I can help you succeed in your endeavors!
I really cannot wait to meet you!

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.

Bible Studies

I am a Catholic Christian and have taught Children's Liturgy classes in the past. I have also taken four Theology classes in college that included Bible Studies. I feel like I would be a great Bible Studies tutor! I would do my very best to be sensitive and open-minded regarding the student's differing beliefs and tailor the sessions to their values.

Religion

I am a Catholic Christian and I have studied World Religions in high school and college in the United States, as well as in Germany. I am very open-minded and I would be honored to tutor this broad subject. I have never tutored Religion, but it has always been an interest of mine as a citizen of the world. I would appreciate having the opportunity to open my student's minds and hearts to the religions of this world.
