Carefully selected, highly-credentialed German tutors in New Jersey
"While I tutor a variety of subjects, some of my favorites are German, math, and English. I have been tutoring students in German, Algebra, Geometry, and SAT preparation for almost ten years. I have worked with eighth-graders preparing for private school entrance exams, have taught Algebra in public school, and I currently teach philosophy at a New Jersey community college. I enjoy helping my students learn to solve problems on their own, think for themselves, and learn the strategies to excel at standardized tests."

" I am a friendly recent college graduate who likes to make learning fun. When tutoring, I look for ways to relate the material to one of your child's interests, to better ensure he/she retains the material. Part of my method includes instructing students on how to properly study. For example, I advise them on how to make comprehensive study reviews, a schedule, and note cards."

"I use fun activities to immerse students in the language so that they forget they are learning. My lessons can be as informal or formal depending on the client's preference.

"I have been tutoring middle and high school students, and I also have some teaching experience with elementary school grades. I believe a solid understanding of grammar, syntax and spelling is important when learning any language, but at the same time I always complement the theoretical part with practical examples, using various kinds of media, incl. books, articles, videos, and experiences from my own life. Serious fun!."

"During that time, I exploited the knowledge I'd acquired as a high school student and undergraduate, but I also broadened my repertoire to cover new topics. I've since tutored most high school, college, and graduate school entrance exams. I've worked with students of all ages on grade-level studies in math, science, the humanities and foreign languages. Students at top high schools like Stuyvesant and Brooklyn Tech are especially engaging to work with, due to the challenging nature of the material and the lively mind of the student."

"My philosophy is that everyone is educable and deserves an appropriate education in the least restrictive environment. My experience working and teaching students in other countries and cities has only serve to further my belief that there is no one 'right' model, yet more individualized instruction most often yields the greatest success.

I have experience teaching and tutoring students with Special Needs, English Language Learners and Gifted and Talented children." ...

"My goal is to help students develop a passion, or at least an interest, in subject areas they may have learned to dislike or fear. I build students' confidence by helping them understand the connection between areas of study that challenge them, and other subjects they may already feel comfortable with. I believe that writing, reading and analysis are not innate abilities, but rather skills that each student must work to develop. I help students understand that they are not 'bad' at these subjects -- they simply have not had the right opportunity to develop their skills. The students I work with make significant progress in their studies, ...
