Graduate Student offering German tutoring. 5 years experience + 1 year experience teaching at IU

Methodology

I enjoy teaching college and high school students. I focus heavily on getting students to speak German, while also drawing attention to grammar when needed. In addition, I incorporate German culture into lessons when possible, such as festivals, holidays, and sporting events. I like to integrate modern German media, such as news articles, websites, Youtube videos, and music, into my lessons in order to teach, but also to increase interest in German culture.

Background

I am a graduate student at Indiana University pursuing a degree in Germanic linguistics and philology. I have been teaching German at IU for one year and have been studying German for 5 years, including studying abroad in Berlin in 2014.

The German Suffix -igkeit as a Suppletive Allomorph March 2018 - Present
• Investigated the German suffixes -heit, -keit, -ig, and -igkeit. Addressed the question of whether -igkeit should be considered one or two suffixes
