My purpose as a tutor is to make sure you learn German (or psychology or whatever) in an effective and more or less fun way. The way I teach is to use things in your life to relate concepts too and let my knowledge and personality shine through from there.
To give myself some credit, I have been studying German since 2004, I have a completed minor in German at UMKC (awaiting graduation this fall.) I have read Faust by Goethe three times, along with eleven other books in the German language. I currently watch German films and TV shows to keep myself up to par.
I have plenty of experience in tutoring other undergraduates but will have no problem tutoring those who may be in high school or otherwise. I hope to be able to work with you and I Hope to meet with you soon! Aufwiedersehen!
