I have a Masters degree in teaching both English as a Second Language and Spanish as a Foreign Language. I also have a Masters in American Studies/Folklore from Utah State University. For the last six years I was teaching 10 to 18 year-olds (beginners through advanced) at an international school in Austria and tutored individuals of all ages in ESL to help them reach standardized goals within a limited time frame. Before that, I taught college level critical thinking, academic writing and research skills and tutored at a writing center. As an Austrian native, I can help you with beginners grammar or advanced conversational or written German. If you are looking to improve your research or (pre)academic writing skills and need a sounding-board for your ideas, refresher on citation rules or just some guidance on structuring or editing your texts, I can coach you through the process. An avid traveler and cook, I love all things Spanish and Latino, and will bring some relevant music and cultural tidbits into our Spanish meetings even if our topic for the day is a specific grammar concept you may be struggling with. Finally, my greatest passion is teaching ESL. With years of in- and out of classroom experience under my belt, I have an extensive toolbox to appeal to all learning styles and cater to all levels. Most importantly, a life-long foreign-language learner, writer and researcher myself, I know that the only place to start making progress is right where you are at. I am patient, structured, and ready to break down any daunting task into manageable steps towards your final goal.
