Teaching Philosophy    

 My interest in foreign languages and cultures started while attending high school in Germany and taking Latin and English as mandatory subjects. As a year-long Rotary Club exchange student in Canada, I experienced how valuable it is to learn about different cultures and languages.  During my university studies, I added some French, Finnish, and Biblical and Ancient Greek to my language experience and decided I wanted to turn this interest in languages into my profession. 

Having traveled extensively in Europe and also North America, I try to combine language instruction with teaching about German and European cultures at the same time. I try to bring a balanced approach of teaching culture, grammar, conversation, writing, and reading skills to my students.
