Aida – German

Hallo zusammen!

My name is Aida, and I am a current Cheshire resident with a Bachelor’s in German Studies from Brown University. While in college, I worked as a German language tutor and a teaching assistant for an introductory German class. Aside from German, I have tutored high school and elementary school students in science and reading. I spent the 2017-18 school year in Mönchengladbach, Germany, where I taught English to students in grades 5-11 with the support of the U.S. Fulbright Student grant. While I was there, I was able to take classes at a local university and immerse myself fully in the German language and culture. World languages and cultural understanding have always been important parts of my life, and I am excited to share my love of German with learners of all ages!
