Hi there!

My name is Finja and my story involves 3 places I think of as home: born and raised in Germany, I moved to England for high school and college before coming to California in the summer of 2015 to attend grad school.

I majored in History for both my BA and MA, a choice that I could not be happier about. The exploring of the past, the piecing together of evidence, and the endless amounts of readings and discussions not only taught me a lot about specific places, events, and people, they also taught me the values of passion, curiosity, and open-mindedness.

In my free-time I like to cook and be active. Running, hiking, surfing, and really anything that involves being out and about is right up my alley.

If you are looking for a History/German/Writing tutor I would love to hear from you, or as I would say in German: Hoffentlich bis bald!

All my best,

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

To respect and appreciate how they respond to the material as well as your teaching style! Teaching HAS to be a two-way enterprise; it can't just be the teacher projecting his or her opinions and beliefs onto the student!
