Need a technical writer, instructional designer, online accent coach, or German to English translator?
Feel free to set up a 15-minute, introductory chat.
Leaning on 15+ years’ experience as a technical writer, I write technical documentation for software engineers, website developers, researchers using supercomputers, and more. As an example of my collaboration with engineers, see Item-Item Music Recommendations With Side Information (PDF).
For a new Berlin resident, I translated at the immigration office (Ausländerbehörde) from German to English and English to German. As a Senior Localization Manager, I vetted translations from German to English, and Finnish to English. As a means of learning languages, I translate from a given target language into English.
As a holder of an Instructional Designer certificate from Langevin Learning Services, Inc., I designed SoundCloud’s training curriculum for the Engineering department from scratch. As a holder of an advanced TEFL certificate, I planned English lessons and taught non-native speakers from multiple backgrounds within the same classroom.
As a former violinist, I distill technical information about language sounds into practice sets that you can use to gain a new accent based on Standard American English. I listen to your speech patterns and provide specific, individualized techniques that you can use to become more easily understood by native speakers. You can use these techniques to transform your English into an asset to achieve personal and professional goals.
