I am holding a Masters's Degree in Education from National-Louis University in Heidelberg, Germany (former name: National Teacher's College), and a Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Arts with majors in Sociology and Psychology from Excelsior College, New York (former name: Regents College). I am a member in good standing of the American Association of Teachers of German.

By the Texas State Board for Educator Certification I am certified to teach German language, Psychology and Sociology. I am authorized by the German Government as a "Certified Translator of the German and English Language", and I hold a Certificate of Proficiency in English from the University of Cambridge, Great Britain.

Before teaching High School, I worked as a free-lance Translator for the languages German and English and I gained experience in Adult Education:
  • From 1991-1999 I taught classes in German language, as well as Functional Academic Skills in English language and Remedial Mathematics, at the U.S. Army Education Center in Darmstadt, Germany.
  • From 1990-1994 I taught basic and advanced German language courses at Big Bend Community College in Bad Kreuznach, Germany.
  • From 1987-1994 I taught classes in English language at the German Volkshochschule in Darmstadt, Germany.

IRS Enrolled Agent, admitted to practice before the Internal Revenue Service

Certified Computing Professional (CCP), ICCP, Des Plaines, IL

 

Since 2009 I am admitted to practice before the Internal Revenue Service as an Enrolled Agent (EA), recognized as a professional engaged in the preparation of Individual and Business Income Taxes. As an Enrolled Agent (EA), I am authorized by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Professional Responsibility, to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service in all 50 states. I am bound by the IRS Code of Ethics in Circular 230 (USC Title 31 Section 10: Practice Before The Internal Revenue Service), and by the continuing education standards of the Office of Professional Responsibility.

Enrolled agents specialize in taxation and report their hours of continuing professional education directly to the IRS. 60,000 Enrolled agents in the United States advise, represent and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and non-profits. Enrolled agents are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice directly from the U.S. government - whereas certified public accountants and attorneys are licensed by states and their licenses are only state specific.

I first learned about accounting and income taxes in Germany in 1971-1973, as a part-time accounting apprentice to a Certified Public Accountant. From 2007 on I prepared individual income taxes for a Jackson Hewitt franchisee, reviewed individual income taxes for a Liberty Tax franchisee, prepared individual income taxes for Certified Public Accountant companies. As an Enrolled Agent I use my expertise also to provide high-quality tax assistance at no cost to low- and moderate-income clients and the elderly. From 2010 on I volunteer for the IRS programs Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) as a tax preparer and quality reviewer.

 

 

From 1973 to 1998 I worked as a computer scientist at the Deutsches Rechenzentrum, now: German National Research Center for Information Technology, in Darmstadt, Germany. My professional emphasis was on portability of software, on compatibility between computer systems, and I continue to view and support the "World Wide Web" concept as a set of open, global, independent, portable specifications that were never intended to be abused and perverted by certain software and hardware manufacturers. I am a retired Certified Computing Professional (CCP) with 25 years of experience with computers and software. I hold ICCP proficiency certificates for Business Information Systems and for the programming languages BASIC, COBOL, PASCAL, and C++.

In the 1970s and 1980s the German National Research Center for Information Technology cooperated with multiple German state departments of education. As a member of a team of six computer scientists, I participated in this cooperation, developing INTEGA, an automated software system for creating timetables and for administrative tools for large integrated schools in Germany. During meetings with school administrators and members of the state education departments all over Germany I fine tuned the requirements and the implementation and testing of the INTEGA software on various computer systems.

  • From 1973 to 1985, besides using FORTRAN for the system INTEGA, I was acting systems programmer for Telefunken TR440.
  • In 1973, in my spare time I designed and implemented system utilities in TR440 Assembler for the ZRS (Zentrale Registrierstelle für Studienbewerber).
  • In 1974, in my spare time I designed and implemented a computerized accounting and costing system in COBOL on a mainframe computer IBM/370 DOS/VS for a German Fortune 500 company. In 1980 the system was migrated to Siemens (now Fujitsu) BS2000 and some interactive DCAM-COBOL applications added.
  • The system INTEGA, an automated software system for creating timetables, was written in FORTRAN and some Assembler routines. From 1976 to 1985 I was porting the system INTEGA to IBM/OS using TSO/ISPF/JCL and to Siemens BS2000.
  • In 1980 I was acting systems programmer for Siemens BS2000. In 1982 I was acting systems programmer for IBM/VM. In 1983 I was acting systems programmer for IBM S/1 RPS.
  • In 1995, in my spare time I developed a networked point-of-sale terminal system on personal computers for a German startup company and maintained it until 2001.
  • From 1997-1998 I was acting webmaster using Perl, promoting internet access to German high schools (Schulen ans Netz).
