It is an honor to provide a letter of recommendation for Carrie Long, an instructor of German and English (ESL) at Linguistic Life. She is a skilled teacher with the unique ability to engage her students at all levels of learning.

In 2013, Carrie was engaged to teach beginning/intermediate German to small groups within our organization. I joined a small group of Parts employees eager to learn and better communicate with our German colleagues.

I had taken beginning German previously at our company  but had been disappointed with the instructor who never seemed prepared or on time. In contrast, Carrie had materials at the ready, lessons clearly structured each week, and assignments designed to encourage week-to-week progress. Carrie was also flexible when students were having difficulty with new concepts or grammar. On several occasions, she changed her approach and provided additional materials to ensure our success and progress. The personal benefits from this experience have been enormous.

Given her educational background in both German and Psychology, Carrie is an excellent choice to provide life-long language skills to individuals or groups. I highly recommend her to you.
