I am Barbara, a native German with an M.A, degree, and extensivel extensive experience teaching foreign languages listed. It is my aim to help students, professionals, and those who wish to study, or travel, by using their specific foreign language to communicate for personal or professional reasons. My teaching style is interactive, and even though I wish for you to aim high in accomplishing your study goals, I also want you to enjoy the learning process. Contact me to discuss your specific requirements. I taught foreign languages, cross-cultural communications, assisted professionals at companies to prepare for overseas travel, tutored and instructed at high schools, colleges, and universities, and ready to adjust to your specific study requests. As a Certified Interpreter with the State of Michigan, I can also assist German, French and Spanish Teachers with obtaining their Driver's License, or any translations of legal or work related documents, as I am also listed on the UM Translator list.+ Read More
Taught German, French, Spanish, and Western Art and Civilization at Davenport University, AII, and Schoolcraft College where I presently teach.
Orientation in On-Line teaching at Davenport University. Even though I only applied the on-line component for a blended traditional class, It allowed me to better organize lesson plan, grading, and gave students to interact in their Blackboard Discussion Threats to discuss their study progress, and allowed for interaction between students and myself, the Instructor.+ Read More
Barbara is a great instructor who makes learning a challenging language exciting!
Quick Response for Setting up German Lessons. Looking forward to Class.
Barbara is a kind and very interested instructor in the students. She teaches both from a Schoolcraft college dedicated book and also helps with conversational German and German culture in vocal expressions. I have had a great experience learning for now over a year and I can't wait for the years to come. She even talks to me about everyday life and events. Barbara also goes to many places beyond Detroit, with this flexibility she has come all the way to Novi for me to learn. I bet you're going to have fun. So I recomend this teacher to anyone who wants to learn a language and have fun at the same time.+ Read More
