"I am a German and French native speaker from Switzerland with the Texas Educator certifications for Latin, German, French and Italian. I currently teach at the public school. I am a member of the Junior Classical Leagues, member of ACTFL (American Council of the Teaching of Foreign Languages) and AATG (American Association of Teachers of German)

My teaching method includes cultural specific 'speech acts', cultural ways of communication in the context of basic grammar skills. I will help with test preparations for AP (advanced placement college credit) and official national and international proficiency tests A - C, for study abroad and visa/passport application.

I teach foreign language skills by keeping the student visually engaged and verbally interactive in a fun and relaxed learning environment. Having worked with newcomers with the LI program gave me a great experience and an excellent tool for teaching second language learners from different cultures.

Before I started my studies at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, I was admitted to the School of Applied Arts of Zurich. The curriculum for my Master's Degree included Math, Algebra and Calculus, Science and Latin certification (KMK Latinum), with majors in Italian language and literature, Art history and minor in History of French language. I wrote my thesis about the Self Representations of the Leaders and Advisors of the Italian Renaissance and their educational programs, that were based on the Antique sources and knowledge. During my studies, I taught French, Italian and Art at the Public High school in Switzerland and French at the Public High school in America. I home-schooled my two children through Elementary School, since I wanted them to learn several languages at early age and at the same time led a parent group teaching German and Art classes." less...
