Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
As a Spanish instructor I taught credit classes at the college level, I really enjoy student interaction, dialogues, presentations and blended grammar exercises. It is important that the student enjoys the class and even though I expect homework done, I want the student to actively engage in the learning process...

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.

Orientation in On-Line teaching at Davenport University.

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.
