Multilingual Learning Tutor

2016-2017 MLL: Rene Wegner


Hello Gusties,

My name is René Wegner, and I am from Dresden, Germany. I have been living in the United States since 2005. My journey to America started as a high school exchange student in Clarkfield, which is in rural Minnesota, before I attended Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) for my undergraduate education. After finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in English Education and Communication Studies, I decided to pursue my graduate degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) at Minnesota State University (MSU), Mankato. My areas of expertise are in teaching English to multilingual speakers. 

I am looking forward to supporting you with writing, speaking, listening, and reading skills; from brainstorming an idea to final project consultation, most things are possible.
