College student that grew up in Zurich, Switzerland speaking and learning in German.

Methodology

My teaching method is based on the type of student. I like to get to know the student to create a comfortable environment and then base my tutoring techniques on their learning habits and level of understanding. I have tutored young children in middle school and high school, as well as students my own age in college.

Background

I am a college student at Penn State and study at the Smeal College of Business and am studying a German minor. I've tutored 5 different students and speak German fluently, as I went to the Swiss public school before university. I love tutoring because of being able to see the positive results that came from helping the students.
