I teach by engaging students not only in grammar exercises but also in conversations about life and literature. I can provide as much or as little structure as the student(s) want, and I am happy to tailor my lessons to individual needs.
I am a graduate student who is currently finishing his PhD work at Harvard. I offer tutoring for individuals and groups in German language (and literature). I have taught introductory and intermediate German at UC Berkeley and Harvard for over four years.
