Vocabulary


Grammar

As a grammar teacher, I am adept at the nuances of the English language. I also have mid-to-upper-level experience with German grammar. I have an English degree at the bachelor's level, and have additional college hours in writing and grammar.


German

My husband and I lived in Germany for one year, after I studied German at the high school and college level, getting a double major in English and German. I was one of three German teachers in the U.S. to win the Teacher of Excellence award (2011) from the Goethe Institute.


Writing

I am highly qualified to tutor in writing, as I have an English Bachelor's degree and 15 years of experience teaching writing at the high school level. My senior English class is focused primarily on preparing college-bound students, so we practice and write a lot! I also have prior work experience tutoring GED and non-traditional students, and have worked with students as young as 4th grade. I love to help edit papers, and I will be than happy to help you with your writing--no matter what level.

Literature

I am a high school German/English/Language Arts/Journalism teacher with 15+ years of experience. I work primarily with teenagers, but I also have prior experience tutoring GED students in various subjects. Besides tutoring students in German, my main love is writing and literature and helping students working on their papers/speeches/etc. Please let me know if you have interest! Thanks!


Proofreading

As a writing teacher of 15 years, I am constantly proofreading student work, and often work of my colleagues. Proofreading and editing is one of my strengths. I am able to help students at any level improve their own writing.
