Private classes to teenagers and adults, from beginner up through advanced. My methods of instruction are personalized. I am a very patient teacher, I always try to focus on the area of interest of the student. For example, if a student wants to speak more fluently or have a better conversation level.
I operate through a disciplined framing of questions in conversation, such that the student is guided not towards the “answer”—but towards what it is they already know that will help them find the answer. My ideal student is one who is open to a style of teaching that may at first seem slow—conversation based, question based—because I believe that is the ideal way to learn.
Able to tutor German from high school to undergraduate level. I have personal experience studying German in the United States through AP level in high school as well as in college. Living in Germany for a total of four years has also prepared me to be able to offer conversational lessons in most non-specialized subjects.
The lessons are for any student of any age. I encourage the use of and personally use material spoken or written by Germans. All material I utilize must originate in Germany. This provides reliable material that encourages proper pronunciation and an ear tuned to German spoken by Germans.
Hello! I'm so excited you've taken the time to read this. Welcome! My love of languages started in high school when I first took German. Since then, I have graduated with a B.A. in German and Russian from USC - Columbia and have acquired tutoring and teaching experience for German, Russian, and Spanish through study abroad, university, and my teaching position.
I've been teaching for over a decade, various students, various levels, various needs and various subjects. There's nothing I love more though than teaching languages! Depending on a level I combine grammar fundamentals with creative ways of learning vocabulary and a fair share of good old conversation.
When I teach individually, I let the student tell me what they need help with and work from there. When I teach a class, I usually write on the whiteboard, and have a game prepared to get the whole class involved and willing to practice the new skill.
I base my lessons on basics of the language and focus on creating formulas that students can understand and follow to create German sentences. I believe that vocabulary is the base of the language, and from that comprehension easily follows.
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.
My specialty is academic German and I perceive language in a formal and schematic sense, though this intimate understanding of language affords me a high degree of freedom in the content and manner of my lessons. Should you employ my services, we would discuss the content and goal of the course and lessons and thereby negotiate a scope and pace.
My teaching method really depends on the German skills the individual student has acquired so far - if any - and on the student's goal and age. Due to my experience I prefer to teach German to the younger crowd, ranging from preschool through high school. If you are an adult who wants to learn German as a hobby or for a vacation in Germany, I would also love to teach you.
Thorough preparation of material. Using variety of teaching methods with the aim to motivate students. Very successful coaching skills, thus demonstrating the value of learning a foreign language (specifically English). Excellent skills in assisting and motivating students to combine learning and studying with fun.
I would say my teaching method is fairly laided back. I feel if students picked to learn a language, they should mostly be driving themselves to learn. I myself learned with the help of worksheets, and educational articles written on German grammer. I have even written my own articles, in which I try to explain concepts by showing how similar German is to English.
I started learning German in 7th grade. I graduated from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi with a degree in Computer Studies and worked in I.T. in Jackson, Mississippi; New Orleans, Louisiana; Los Angeles, California; and Hamburg, Germany. I lived in Berlin for six months. While working in Los Angelos, I traveled 50% of the year for 3 years to Switzerland to work with a customer.
I structure my classes with a student focussed approach. I always have a base idea of the topics that need to be covered that day, but I let the students interests and questions guide how we learn that lesson. I am a very conversational tutor and think that the student should have a hand in their own learning.
Everyone has a different interest in learning a language, I want to help you in the way you'd like to receive help! Practice makes perfect and repeated failure is the only way to master a new language! For those interested in studying in Germany, I would also be happy to help prepare you to take the Testdaf!
I try to assess students individually, measure their strength and weaknesses and tailor lessons accordingly. I have tutored students in Grade levels K through 6th Grade. Not all children learn the same way, and it is important for the teacher and tutor, to find out how the child learns, and then use various approaches within the scope of their abilities to break down subjects.
Text book instruction based on students current needs as well as interactive lesson plans, such as news broadcasts, movies, literature and newspapers/magazines. Emphasis on German grammar and word placement as well as verb conjugation. May involve some daily activities, such as shopping, transit, etc.
I am native Russian and Ukrainian speaker. I have been learning German since I was small and still have passion for this language. I have experience in teaching foreign languages including German, Ukrainian and Russian. I see myself as a highly motivated and organized foreign language teacher with strong leadership skills and extensive tutoring experience.
I incorporate technology (Duolingo, Quizlet, Google Apps, and more) and reference internet resources as well as textbooks (Deutsch Aktuell, Komm Mit, Mosiak, Denk Mal, Auf gehts!). I have a plethora of resources I’ve accumulated in my classroom. I do not try to re-invent the wheel, but I do believe that personalization and innovation is key to keeping language learning relevant and engaging.
K-2 education in Germany. Lived in Germany until age 8. German was one of two languages spoke in my home all of my life. I tested out of all possible courses for German at Missouri State University and then took remaining courses to get a minor in German.
I'm teaching all levels of German. The methods and content of my lessons are suitend with the indivdual wishes and level of exciting knowledge of my students.
Education: 1998: PhD. in the field of Comparative Linguistics and Education, LaSalle University (USA) 1996: M.A.
In my lessons I like my students to use the language as much as possible. In my experience you only learn a language properly by using it.

Guten Tag! I was born and raised in Munich, Germany. I am fluent in German and English. I moved to the United over 30 years ago with my family. I worked as a chief flight attendant for Lufthansa Airlines for many years.
I graduated in 2007 from University of Tirana (Albania) with a Bachelor's degree in the German Language with a Major in the German Language and Minor in the English Language. Later I gained a Post-graduate certificate in teaching the German Language from Goethe Institute. When I teach or tutor I emphasize the importance of the excellent communication and interaction with the students.
I am an Austrian-born native German speaker who lived many years in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland and moved finally to the US.
