Private tutor in Alexandria, VA
University of Redlands - BA, International Relations , Johns Hopkins, SAIS - MA, International Economics/Russian Area Studies
I teach German and other foreign languages to adults and students who are passionate about more than just language. Learning a new language is more than just grammar, syntax, and vocabulary. I incorporate foreign culture and history into my language instructions and use games, films short videos and other platforms to inculcate the full foreign language experience into my personalized curriculum for every student, even those who have typically struggled with learning a new language. I recognize that not every student will have the same learning style and I strive to adapt my teaching skills to each student's abilities. I honed my own foreign language skills at Johns Hopkins University and have a graduate degree in International Economics, with a concentration in Russian studies. I immersed myself in the cultures of Austria and Russia for almost two years and have experienced many foreign cultures and languages in my overseas travels. I currently work for a branch of the US Government, and I pursue my passion for languages through my work with my students. I maintain a level of personal fitness with downhill skiing in the winter and tennis in the summer. My spouse and our two children enjoy living in Alexandria, Virginia, where we pursue all of our passions.
