Experienced German language and ESL instructor, Social Studies teacher

For more than two decades, I have been passionate about instilling in students a true interest in life-long learning, in learning languages, and in exploring other cultures. Beyond that, I have experienced special satisfaction in developing my students? social skills, their creativity and analytical thinking, along with a focus on idealism and social justice. During the course of my career, I have had the opportunity to teach at various schools in Germany, Texas, Pennsylvania, and California... [more]


Grammar

I have been a teacher since 1987 and taught as a generalist at public elementary schools in Texas from 1995 to 1998 and from 2007 to 2010. More recently, I taught 5th and 6th grades at a private school in California and home schooled 2nd and 3rd graders. Even grammar can be really fun and make sense! I know because I have been helping students understand and master the grammar in their English and German language classes since 1991.


German

German language learning can be so much fun! I know because I have been helping students understand and master my native language since 1987. During my career, I taught students of all ages, various backgrounds, and from 25+ nations. As a native speaker, I can promise to get you a feel of the language along with valuable background information of German culture and history. Students have come to appreciate my blended approach and a dedicated interactive practice website which I code and author myself for you.


Reading

I have been a teacher since 1987 and taught as a generalist at public elementary schools in Texas from 1995 to 1998 and from 2007 to 2010. More recently, I taught 5th and 6th grades at a private school in California and home schooled 2nd and 3rd graders. My students enjoy their additional reading practice in either English or German - it sure makes a difference.


Geography

I have been a teacher since 1987. Besides English and world languages, Geography and Social Studies have always been my favorite subjects to teach. I taught as a generalist at public elementary schools in Texas for six years and more recently at a private school in California. My students came to love Geography, not only because I have lived in various countries and traveled a lot myself. It can be really fun!


ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching ESL/TESOL since 1991 in Germany and the U.S. to students of all ages, various backgrounds and countries. My students have come to appreciate my blended conversational approach and the fact that I have my own website which they can use to practice the language in between sessions. I author and code everything myself and develop my own classroom materials as well. If you wish, however, we could use textbooks and materials already in your possession.


Elementary Math

I have been a teacher for 28+ years and taught as a generalist at public elementary schools in Texas from 1995 to 1998 and from 2007 to 2010. Service records can be provided on request. More recently, I taught 5th and 6th grades at a private school in California and home schooled 2nd and 3rd graders. Math has always been one of my favorite subjects to teach and tutor, and my students loved it as well.


Elementary Science

I have been a teacher since 1987 and taught as a generalist at public elementary schools in Texas from 1995 to 1998 and from 2007 to 2010. More recently, I taught 5th and 6th grades at a private school in California. Science can be really fun! I would love to help you master it.


Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a teacher since 1987 and taught as a generalist at public elementary schools in Texas from 1995 to 1998 and from 2007 to 2010. Service records can be provided on request. More recently, I taught 5th and 6th grades at a private school in California as well as home schooled 2nd and 3rd graders.


Social Studies

I have been a teacher since 1987 and taught as a generalist at public elementary schools in Texas for six years and as a German language instructor at one of the nation's ten best public high schools in Pittsburgh, PA. More recently, I taught 5th and 6th grades at a private school in California, supported the home schooling of 2nd and 3rd graders, and taught German language, U.S. History, and World History at an independent school in the North Bay.
