My name is Christof. I am 49 years old and a German citizen. I immigrated into the United States in January, 2012. I am a creative director and professional writer. German is my native language. I am also fluent in English.

I am an experienced tutor for all levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced/professional.

I studied German language, political science, and modern history for three years. I have traveled a lot and am highly interested in the multicultural aspects of our global world. Since I am a native speaker and a professional language user, the German I teach is always state of the art - whether it is conversational, formal, or creative. For me, language is a dynamic process, and communication is a showcase of skills, character, and personality.
Since my college days, I have tutored people in different fields of German, history, geography, and reading. My wife teaches ELL, so we constantly exchange experience, methods, etc.

German

German

I am a native German speaker. I am also fluent in English. I studied (majored in) German language science at college for three years. As a Creative Director/professional writer, I know all facets of German, and how to communicate them to my students. I have been hired for teaching private "creative writing" seminars. I have also coached people in preparation for job interviews.

Elementary Education

Reading

Reading

Reading and comprehending literature pertaining to all types of subjects and difficulty levels was crucial for my college career and continues to be important for my professional career. Over time, I have learned different reading/comprehension techniques, as well as developing some of my own. I have instructed co-workers and apprentices in advertising agencies in the field of reading/comprehension skills, and I have tutored reading at both middle and high school level in Germany.

Writing

Writing

Throughout my entire professional career, writing, and the ability to teach writing, have been essential skills for me. I write for a variety of occasions and in many different styles, such as advertising campaigns, newspaper/magazine articles, theater dialogues, radio spots, and conceptional papers, etc. As a creative director, I have helped trainees, junior writers, and students gain, exercise, and refine their writing skills, as well as develop their own styles. I am familiar with both theoretical and practical requirements for writing.

History

American History,

American History

American history was a part of my history and political science studies at college. It was part of my high school education in history class and in my English classes. I tutored American history as a single subject, and as a part of English and history tutoring classes for adults and high school students. Since I immigrated into the USA in 2012, I have "refreshed" my knowledge of American history. My wife, licensed to teach social studies, is a great source of input and shares my interest in history in general, and American history in particular.
European History,

European History

I studied modern history and political science for 3 years at college (as minors). I have traveled extensively, and on my travels I have visited many historically relevant places in Europe such as Rome, Athens, London, Glasgow, and Paris, etc. I continue to travel and learn from my "live history experiences," since history is a meaningful hobby of mine. I have tutored European history occasionally, partly to high school students, and partly to adults in preparation for travel.
Geography,

Geography

I studied modern history and political science (subjects highly related to geography)at college for 3 years. I took all possible voluntary geography courses at high school since the subject caught my interest. It still is a great interest of mine and has inspired me to travel extensively: USA, Spain-4X, Portugal-3X, France-12X, Switzerland-4X, Holland- 8X, Italy-3X, Argentina-3X, Belgium, England, Scotland, Poland, Croatia, Greece, Czech Republic, Tunisia, Singapore, Bali, Brazil, Chili, Canada. This "mix" of contemporary experience and historical studies gives me a solid background concerning changes in the geographical face of the world (especially important for eastern Europe, former Yugoslavia etc), as well as an understanding of the impact of those changes to the political landscape. So far, geography has not been an isolated tutoring topic for me, but an important part of tutoring when teaching about language, history, and politics, etc.
Music History

Music History

Music history was integrated into many of my history courses at college. I also studied music history in high school. Interest in music is a family tradition. My great-grandfather was the first violinist of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, and a great aunt of mine was an opera singer. Due to this interest, I took music history classes in middle school, high school, and college. I have also written reports about music events for a regional cultural magazine, and tutored students in music history during college.

Homeschool

Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

To learn and excel in algebra, one needs to understand mathematical concepts. I am a conceptual thinker with strong deductive and analytical skills. I have the ability to explain abstract topics to others in a manner that is simple to understand. I believe that part of this is due to my advertising/creative director experience where clearly communicating complex and difficult topics to a wide range of personalities is of utmost importance. Algebraic math was a subject I studied in school and did well on when taking my final high school examination. I believe that with persistence and hard work, anyone can learn math.
