Mr. Griggs has been my German tutor for the past 2 years. In this time span, I have grasped concepts in the German language which were a struggle for me in the past - these areas include verb tenses, pronouns, and complex sentence structures. I feel I have learned so much from our lessons compared to my studies at a university.
One thing I appreciate in my language studies with Mr. Griggs, is his ability to recognize that in learning a foreign language a student needs a variety of tools to master the language - these include narratives, reading materials, and auditory interactions. Mr. Griggs does a wonderful job in gathering tools to assist in teaching and there is no doubt in my mind that he goes beyond the call of duty to prepare for our lessons. I can tell a lot of time is put into the preparation for our lessons, as well as research on Mr. Griggs' part to tell us about a German topic of interest or suggestions to enhance our learning of the German language.
Mr. Griggs definitely has the gift of teaching. My husband and I receive our lessons together and Mr. Griggs is able to use a variety of methods in which to captivate our interests and instruct us on our different levels of mastery in the German language. Our lessons are never dull and Mr. Griggs loves to 'shake up' the lessons which make our learning enjoyable.
