"My specialization is to prepare individuals for rigorous tests like the SAT I and II; German, AP German (Advanced Placement Test), and for the challenging German language admission test at universities in Germany. I also prepare for work and life in Germany, or just for visiting family and be able to communicate with them.

I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring and co-authoring textbooks for the English classroom. Since I have been living in the United States, I enjoy teaching German from beginner to college level. My teaching experience ranges from children at the elementary school level to adults who need German language skills for their careers or enrichment.

During my stay in the US, I had the opportunity to develop curricula for teaching German in public schools as well as private schools and wrote articles in the field of German literature. Undoubtedly, my academic background (MA in German and English and a Ph.D. in education) helps me provide solid work for my students.

Back in Germany, as well as here in the States, I had ample opportunities to teach individual students German or English as a Foreign Language. The age range was as young as 8 while my oldest student was 78. I am looking forward to passing on my knowledge and skills in the German language to anybody interested in learning this language online with anybody in the world. Willkommen! Welcome.

What is my approach? First, I listen carefully, very carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to giving good advice, guidance, and then, of course, a plan, a kind of strategy to follow to reach these goals. There will be a permanent interaction between my client and me to monitor the progress, eventually speed up the tempo, or, if necessary, slow down.

There is no dogma; there is only one main criterion: success." less...
