I just joined the Varsity Tutors team as a German tutor. I completed my BA in German and English after taking German for four years in high school, during which I traveled to Bavaria twice as an exchange student. I then went on to complete my MA in German Studies at Michigan State University. In 2009, I became certified to teach German and English at the secondary level.
I have been a tutor since my acceptance into the National Honor Society in high school. I have tutored at Alma College and have worked as a teaching assistant at Michigan State, where I helped design assessments as well as teaching at the beginner and intermediate levels.
German has been a favorite subject of mine because of my personal connection to the language and culture. I enjoy using games and communicative activities as much as possible to make German interesting and fun to learn. Outside of academia, I enjoy reading, writing and film. I will look forward to working with you.
