Private tutor in Austin, TX

Education

Master's degree in Germanic Studies and Scandinavien Studies (Swedish) at ELTE University Budapest (Hungary) -- year 1998/2000.

Experience

I am a professional, committed, qualified language teacher of German and Swedish. Before I moved to the USA in 2010 I worked as freelance instructor in Budapest, Hungary and taught at all levels, group and one-on-one, instructed in high-schools, language schools, at companies and for several Hungarian state public administration offices. I instructed super-intensive language training classes, worked as examiner for general certificate of education (high-school) and for state language proficiency exam and assisted for university admission examination. I had lived and worked/studied in Germany, Austria, Sweden and Switzerland for longer periods of my life. I have been teaching languages for over 20 years now and my goal has always been to show my students the spectacular communication power of these languages.

Hobbies

I am from Hungary and I think the biggest benefit of it is – compared with a native German or Swedish teacher – that I know exactly, from my own experience, all the challenges you meet by learning these beautiful languages. I am on my student's side. I can totally understand their concerns and questions. I can feel with them if they get frustrated or tired. And I can show them how to succeed and how to have lots of fun during this never ending learning journey. I have two daughters. I am homeschooling them in the afternoon for the Hungarian curriculum. I love spending time in the nature, reading, meeting friends. I'm the organizer and lead instructor for a Hungarian Enrichment class for kids.
