I am a graduate of The Evergreen State College with a BA in Liberal Arts. My background includes extensive writing in both English and German, and graduate courses in German at Portland State University and University of California at Davis. I look forward to helping you reach your academic and career goals as your personal tutor, helping you to craft your English writing skills to impress instructors, test-scorers and admissions committees. Together we will make sure you have nothing to fear when submitting that important essay or research paper. We will work on everything you need for success: impeccable grammar, complex sentence structure, clarity of purpose, and bullet-proof arguments. Through private, personalized tutoring sessions, we will make sure your writing stands out as an indicator of high intelligence and exceptional academic promise.
In German, I will help you speak and master a challenging language that forms an excellent foundation for any college or graduate school application. Together we will tackle verb tenses, word order, and complex adjective endings- or any challenge you may have in written or spoken German. I have spent 6 summers at the world class Deutsche Sommerschule am Pazifik, and am eager to share my knowledge and love of everything German with my students.
For students who wish to improve their English, I provide clear and patient support at all levels.
To keep body and mind healthy and active, I enjoy dancing, singing in a choir, playing piano, yoga, running, and volunteer counseling work. I am also a certified massage therapist, because I care about helping people feel their very best.
