Our daughter took to Kerstin right away. She did not want the lesson to end!
Pamela W.
Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.
Joshua
She was absolutely patient and was able to work with and engage my son who has a learning disability. She did a great job making him feel comfortable and after only one session I could see his confidence go up as he continued to draw into the evening. She really enjoys what she does and it shows in the way she worked with my son.

I am born and raised in Germany and speak the language fluently.
Furthermore, I moved to the US 3 Years ago and I know the struggle with a new language very well therefore I am very respectful and insightful with my students.

Since I moved to the US I have an American girlfriend who is now able to talk german in a proper way only trough me teaching her. After being with me for that time she gained a lot of confidence and considers herself bilingual.

I have lived and worked in Nigeria, West Africa; London, United Kingdom; Waageningen, The Netherlands and currently work for a major United States Airline as a German speaking Flight Attendant.

I first started learning German due to a serendipitous move to Oklahoma following my junior year of high school. I have since really grown to love the German language and ended up getting a BA in German Studies (jointly with a BA in Spanish). I really love German literature, whether it's Goethe or Michael Ende, and I really enjoy Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Händel, and also Lieder (Shubert's "Erlkönig" being my favorite). I am also a huge fan of Die Prinzen. I consider myself an expert in grammar-related topics (including verb conjugation, cases, Konjunktiv I and II, etc.) but am also willing to teach vocabulary, pronunciation, and other topics.

About Paul

Since I'm absolute beginner in Japanese, I found Paul to be the perfect fit for me. If you are young or adult (me) I would highly recommend taking classes with Paul at least for your beginning classes. I'm sure he would be the perfect fit for you too.

German is a spoken language, so being able to speak it well is important. I work on building vocabulary, grammar, reading and writing. For students who are planning to travel in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria & Switzerland) we can also work on survival: basic words & phrases for travelers, and listening/understanding when spoken to.

I took away a whole array of new strategies and techniques to help preserve my voice and to increase my range. What a surprise- I had no idea I could sing so high!! Kathleen is a wonderful teacher and a really super lady. I'll be back for more lessons in the fall.
Nadia N.
My daughter is really enjoying her voice lessons. Kathleen is a talented, caring teacher and knows how to make the process effective and fun for my daughter. My daughter loves being able to choose the songs she wants to learn, and this collaborative process keeps her quite interested and inspired.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.

I am native German and teach happy and successful students for a long time.

I can't really talk too much about how other teachers work, and also don't want to. But I know I have and always had many happy and successful students. From kids, adults, professionals, hobbyists to people who retired and finally have time to fulfill a life goal.

I have quite a few students who have German in school and it is a pleasure to see how they improve since there is mostly not really the time at all to go over details in school and my experience is that most students who don't have native parents, need simply help in order to succeed and get good grades.

Marcel is an extremely capable German tutor. He has an extensive understanding of German and will out of his way to help you learn.
Friederike
I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)
