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.
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.

I teach according to students’ preferences , since some prefer speaking skills, others reading, writing , understanding or a mix of all of these. I’m happy to give lessons that cover all the bases, or to focus on students’ main interests, to ensure that the learning experiences is as beneficial,as possible to everyone.
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 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.
My language lessons are positive learning experiences, based on these methodologies: 1- Total Physical Response (TPR) stresses the importance of aural comprehension. IT works by having the student respond to simple commands. It may include a bit of acting for both the learner and the teacher.
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 have a B.A. in German and a Master's of Education from Old Dominion University. My target lesson group is beginners to advanced learners. i.e. children and adults. My methodology is Didaktik and I personalize lessons to each individual learner.
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.
Learning should be personal to the individual or individuals in a group. I believe in connecting myself and the content to the learner based on needs and interests. Over the last 20 years, I have proven that everyone can learn a different language and that new languages are doorways to new experiences and growth.
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.
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.
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 use the communicative method for language instruction. Put simply, we learn new languages by using them! Instead of rote grammar lessons, I emphasize learning by using language in real-world settings relevant to my students.
Situational depending on student needs
I have taught younger students in middle school and high school as well as college students and adults. I approach each student's needs individually. I'm happy to help with homework, proof-read essays, practice German speaking and pronunciation and explain grammatical rules.
My name is Nikolas Pulido, I've been living here in the United States in Chicago for almost a year now. Before that I lived in Germany for 20 straight years and ran a tutoring agency with 25 students. Back than I taught my students the proper way to articulate themselves in English and achieve high results in their exams.
I have completed German Teacher Training and teach through reading texts and books, interactive games, creative tasks, Journaling practice and videos. My students are encouraged to complete homework between sessions and to keep a vocabulary journal or cards to extend their understanding and practice of German.
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 believe that learning a language is by making it fun and encourage as much converation as possible from day one.
The lessons I offer are highly dependent on your level and goals. For beginners I offer classic grammar lessons and with advanced learners I often simply have conversations about casual things or very specific topics. Depending on your wishes, I will correct any errors directly in the conversation or via a real-time synchronized text document (e.g. GoogleDocs).
I am a Swiss-US dual national educated in the US and in Switzerland. I am a business person accostomed to total cultural immersion through my background and professional career.
Hello, I am Issac Leal and I am a multilingual language tutor! German is my fourth language. I am mostly self-taught, but I have taken an online Berlitz class, and I have taken the AP German exam (and passed it). I have also informally studied linguistics.
I have taught German for the past 19 years to people from various source languages. I believe in immersion, meaning we plunge into a German reality for fun and engaging learning. Grammar, vocabulary building, writing, and cultural learning form part of my syllabus. I have many resources to draw from. Lot's of visuals and interesting articles for all.
I am 29 years old, grew up in Germany and have over 10 Years working experience with children and teenagers with and without special needs. Depending on the age I use games, music, arts, crafts, exercise and other skills so that they can learn with fun and interaction.
I recently graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Teaching German. I primarily give lessons to K-12 students, however, younger or older students could be excepted on a case by case basis. As a teacher, I am very activity oriented, especially with my younger students, and I rely on the communicative language teaching method which calls for constant speaking in the target language.
