Tutor w/MA for Spanish, ESL, German, English & Computers/QBooks
Hello! My name is Judy, and I love both teaching and learning languages. I majored in German as an undergraduate, and I lived in Germany for more than three years, both in the North (in the city of Kiel) and in the South (in Munich/Muenchen). I returned from Germany to the United States to earn my master’s degree in teaching English as a second/foreign language. Over all, I have taught ESL (English as a Second Language) and German more than 10 years, in Germany, Central America, and the Uni…
Cindy G. from Portland, OR My daughter has been working with Judy for several weeks now. Though my daughter is a third year high school German student, she is missing some very important basics and especially struggles with grammar. Judy has worked with her patiently and methodically, and I've seen great progress. Judy is clearly skilled at the German language, skilled at tutoring and very good at establishing rapport with her student. As a parent, I really appreciate her thorough written synopsis of every lesson. My daughter enjoys her lessons with Judy, and she is feeling much more confident in class. After only two weeks of lessons she had improved a full letter grade at the end of the term. She is also looking forward much more to her trip to Germany this summer and feeling that she may actually be able to speak and understand some German while she is there!
Mark E. from Vancouver, WA After a short introduction and an explanation for why I was there, Judy knew what my needs were and allowed me to learn specifically what Ineeded to know. She has a very pleasent style and is knowlegable.
Jonathan E. from Wilsonville, OR I hired Judy to help me learn German prior to a trip abroad for work. Judy was always prepared to assist me and offered great pointers and corrected my mistakes in a friendly and helpful way. She is a talented tutor, and I would recommend her.
Lynn P. from Portland, OR Judy is a fantastic tutor on all accounts. She is very reliable and punctual. With appropriate notice, she is also flexible in terms of scheduling and occasionally rescheduling appointments. Most importantly, she is a very upbeat and patient tutor. She helps make Spanish fun with her enthusiasm and great sense of humor. My son has worked with her prior to major Spanish exams, and she helps him gain the confidence he needs to do very well on those exams. I have nothing but praise for Judy's excellent tutoring ability.
Kathryn H. from Portland, OR Judy is an excellent teacher. Many people have expertise, but not everyone is capable of effectively teaching or tutoring others. Judy has it all. She combines skill with a natural aptitude for teaching. In addition, she is organized and efficient. She has been instrumental in training and teaching both computer skills and software applications. Highly recommended!!
Suze H. from Oregon City, OR Even in this age, I am always surprised how many people do not do email well. Judy is great. She trusts the medium. Since I am not easily available by phone, this is very important. She even knows how my target language is used in email.
Raoul R. from Portland, OR Judy was a wonderful resource for our 16-year-old son, who was a sophomore high school. Judy was hired to help in three key areas: organization, tutoring English, and goal setting. She was able to help our son in all three. Maybe more importantly, our son looked forward to working with Judy. In the end he was able to improve his grades and get where he needed to be with Judy's help. Judy was quite patient and flexible with her time and was willing to work around his and our time constrains, changing meeting times and places as required. I do not hesitate to recommend her highly to high school student.
Jane K. from Portland, OR Judy is an engaged, vibrant tutor. My son is learning so much from her! He looks forward to his tutoring sessions every week. We are so lucky to have found her through WyzAnt.
Roswitha F. from Portland, OR Judy has been my tutor for exactly 1 year and I'm very happy with her. She is a wonderful tutor! She teaches absolutely professionally and always in a fun way. Judy has great teaching skills and she is always well prepared. My weekly lessons are a very good mix of grammar, conversation, reading and writing. And I also love to learn about the American way of life. Judy knows many important and interesting things about Portland and the surroundings. Whenever I have a question about various topics of everyday life (high school, doctors, shopping), I know I can ask her. Judy is the best for anybody who is looking for a high quality, professional ESL tutor and American culture "ambassador."
