"My teaching experience encompasses a variety of levels including Elementary School through College Level as well as Adult Education. I have tutored Business Men and Women for Berlitz Language Institute and High School Students in German and English for various School Districts. As an immigrant to the United States from Germany I had to learn English the hard way and have a clear understanding of the difficulties and challenges of the English language.

Although I have 20 years of Business experience I always come back to teaching/tutoring as I enjoy the experience of helping students progress and feel that it is always a mutual learning opportunity.

As I mentioned earlier I emigrated to the United States when I was in grade school with no prior knowledge of the English Language so I understand the complications of the English language. In addition I worked 20 years as an Account Executive for 3 major newspapers in the Washington DC/Baltimore, MD area which involved extensive proofreading of advertisements and public announcements.

I am a native speaker of German.

I am the mother of three children that are currently working toward their Master's Degrees so learning is very important in our family and something I love to instill in students. I instill pride in learning along with a very relaxed teaching style." less...
