My name is Tessa and I’m an American living in Germany. Since December 2016 I’ve been exploring and falling in love with my new home, Görlitz. I’m convinced you will love it, too!

Before moving to Görlitz, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing from Northern Arizona University and then went on to study at Arizona State University, where I earned a Bachelor and Master of Arts in German Studies. Both during my studies and after, I was a German language instructor at the university responsible for teaching and designing my own coursework and assessments. I was awarded the Judith Radke Award for Translation as well as German Teaching Assistant of the Year twice during my time there.

Since moving to Görlitz I have been teaching German and English and doing translation work in addition to exploring the area so I can share it with others. I created a group for English Speakers in Görlitz with monthly meetings for anyone who is learning English or is a native speaker!

Please contact me, if…

  • you are planning a visit to Görlitz. I am happy to give you some tips.
  • you are interested in using one of my photos from my website or social media.
  • you are looking for someone to do translation and proof-reading work (German to English) or tutoring in English or German.
