Raised in a bilingual household (English/German), I speak with native pronunciation. My extended family lives in the northwest corner of Germany, but my grandparents emigrated to Pennsylvania in the 1950s.
I hold a Master’s degree in Education and a Bachelor’s degree in German. I have been a one-on-one tutor for 12 years and currently teach full-time in the Pennsylvania public school system as a credentialed German and French teacher. I am also credentialed to teach English Language Arts and English as a Second Language.
I love grammar but realize that you may not! My language instruction is based on your specific needs; therefore, there is no pre-set curriculum.
I offer patient, experienced teaching/tutoring tailored to your individual needs. You will find that you are doing most of the speaking beginning with our first lesson! In addition to conversation and helpful vocabulary, I often use worksheet attachments to supplement my lessons. If you have specific goals, I am more than happy to target those by focusing on a particular vocabulary set throughout our lessons. I also regularly research news in German-speaking countries to include new topics in our lessons for vocab building, translation, or simply for cultural discussion.
