"The central dichotomy of my life has always been that of academics and the performing arts; as I have spent the last six years since graduating from Columbia University in New York auditioning and performing, I have also found myself drawn to working with kids. I have worked as a nanny and tutored kids between the ages of three and seventeen, and I feel especially qualified to work with students on the writing and verbal sections of the SAT and editing their personal statements and college essays. As a high schooler, I was one of those students who LOVED standardized tests; I have always viewed them as an exciting way to measure progress and hone in on, not only academic skills, but also time management, organization, and maintaining a sense of personal calm. In fact, I love the entire college application process because I think of it not as an opaque, mysterious world of judgment behind closed doors, but as the first opportunity in a student’s life to find the perfect fit..."

"As a native German speaker with a degree in Library Sciences and a Minor in Germanistik (German Language and Literature) from the University of Marburg and the Bibliotheksschule Frankfurt am Main, I have been teaching and tutoring German for 10 + years for all ages and levels. I am not limited to a singular approach or methodology to teaching, but completely customize my lessons to the needs and learning style of each individual student. Whenever appropriate, I like to include cultural elements in my lessons and I am very passionate about fostering a greater understanding among people of different cultural backgrounds and a deeper appreciation of what makes each of us unique. I am very engaged in my students’ progress and bring my personal formula for success to every lesson: 5e = s (Ease + expertise + engagement + enthusiasm + excellence = success). In my spare time, I write and edit county briefs for a travel app, as traveling and exploring other cultures is another passion of mine.."
