I grew up in Switzerland where I was speaking German at home and at school. I graduated with straight A's and I also speak English, and some French as well. I have extensive experience in teaching teens and adults and have helped immigrant youth learn ESL.
Speaking several languages fluently served me well in my occupation as a media consultant. I participated as a tutor through a program at my university, volunteering to teach foreign students with a native languages different than German. I have developed a method of learning that is engaging, fun and successful. My experiences as a tutor have afforded me the opportunity to interact with diverse student populations and engage them in learning. Using teaching methods that improve learning, including providing high-interest learning material, multiple means of assessment and instruction, as well as the careful modeling and scaffolding of new skills. I strive to ensure that every student achieves excellence. In addition to believing that every student deserves and is capable of achieving success, I am passionate about preparing students for their individual needs.
