Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!
Pierce
Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

Private German Teacher

My name is Barbara, I was born and raised in Germany and worked for 15 years as a Training and Quality Executive in the hotel industry, one of the companies being The Ritz-Carlton, one of the best training companies in the world. I was in charge of all in-house training sessions, spent up to 20 hours per week in a classroom environment and was chosen as a Property Opening Trainer for The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin. I transferred with The Ritz-Carlton to Miami in 2005. I enjoyed working as an Executive at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach until 2009, when I got married and had my daughter.

I decided to fully homeschool my ten-year old daughter for two years, who, as a result, is fluent in German in both speaking and writing. We moved to NYC in 2013 and I was approved by and followed the official NYC Department of Education guidelines for homeschooling. I joined a weekly after-school program at my church in NYC, taught in English, and have been the director since 2015. in 2019, my family and I

Learning a new language can be difficult and intimidating--my enthusiasm and expertise in the language spans 12 years, a portion of which I lived, worked, and researched in Germany full time. I bring this passion with me into tutoring sessions, and I especially look forward to working with beginners. Let me help you at whatever stage you might be at--from your first Guten Tag! to staying current or even losing an accent.

About Scott

I'm an anthropologist who has lived, worked, and studied in Germany. A part of my job as an anthropologist is to understand German language and culture from the perspective of Germans (and the significant population living in Germany who do not consider themselves German!). This means that my 12 ye

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.
