NYU Grad German Tutor with 8 years scholarly experience in German language, culture, and academic composition.

Methodology

I operate through a disciplined framing of questions in conversation, such that the student is guided not towards the “answer”—but towards what it is they already know that will help them find the answer.

My ideal student is one who is open to a style of teaching that may at first seem slow—conversation based, question based—because I believe that is the ideal way to learn. My ideal student will also share or learn to share my emphasis on the history of things, the roots of things: Etymology matters. Whether we’re looking up the root of an English word (how often they connect!) or the evolution of dialectical argumentation, I believe the only way towards lasting learning is retrospective and deep-digging.

Background

I am an award winning German scholar: I won the Orlando Saa Foreign Language Poetry Award two years in a row, was awarded the high school DAAD/AATG scholarship to study in Germany, and studied in Berlin my third-to-last semester at NYU. While there, I tutored just about my entire dorm in their elementary German classes! Last year, I was invited to speak at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Graduate Association of German Studies conference: Migration.

I met Henery in Berlin a few years ago. Since coming back to the states, Henry has been my go-to-guy for everything from proposals to my thesis. He's incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and eager to explain corrections with me.

Henry was a wonderful German tutor— very clear and patient with the hard grammar, and taught everything in a way that was engaging and easy to understand. And he even showed me a couple of German songs that were fun to learn and helped me remember many phrases :) Thanks Henry— would definitely recommend!

Jack

Henry has been a great friend and peer of mine for a couple years now. He's one of the most passionate people I know, and he is great at introducing others to the things he's interested in.
