" During graduate school, I taught German 101, 102 and 103. My primary goal for students is to use motivation for learning, meaning that I try to find materials that are motivating as motivation is the the essential ingredient for true learning. As far as language learning goes, my basic approach is to balance input and output: listening/reading and speaking/writing. I look forward to teaching you!."

"I believe it is a teacher or tutor's responsibility to determine a student's individual learning style and tailor her lessons accordingly. I do a brief interview with each client to ascertain whether he or she is a visual, auditory or combination learner and teach with these results in mind. I look forward to working with you to achieve your academic goals!."

"Whether it's Russian, German, Georgian, Italian or English, I am equally fluent in all of them and I am able to share my knowledge with anyone who is interested. Languages are so much fun if you get the right approach to learning! I am always positive and encouraging. Since I myself "have been there" and know how hard it can be learning another language, I am going to help you showing some of the better ways and shortcuts. You might be amazed how soon you will see your own success!."

" I spent a year studying in northern Germany, as well as another half year studying in Vienna, Austria.

"My goal is to become a teacher, either at the High School or College level. I believe that education and the process of educating are two-way streets, during which both parties learn and evolve constantly. Success, especially in tutoring, comes from building strong, personal relationships with each student, and getting to know one's student, and letting the student know the tutor, also builds trust, which is essential for a healthy learning environment.
