Christina is patient, encouraging, and a great tutor . I have improved a lot since starting my classes with her as far as understanding the German language (esp. with the hearing and speaking parts). She gave me helpful tools to speed up my learning and she helped me find the right study techniques for better comprehension of the language.
Lina H.
I loved working with Christina! I already had an ear for German growing up with a native speaker and she helped me understand a lot of the grammar I was missing in such a short period of time! As I practice on my own it becomes easier to follow patterns that she pointed out to me.
Stephanie
It was fantastic! I love her multi-faceted approach. :)

I grew up in the German part of Switzerland. I was exposed to the language throughout my schooling years. In my professional life as a doctor's assistant and later CEO assistant I needed to communicate daily in the German language. I studied business for 3 years. Over the last 3 years I have taught numerous people German. Some only need a little guidance, others keep on coming back to master more fluent conversation.

I'm flexible with my time and willing to adapt to my students' needs.

Ivonne is great at preparing lessons based on my needs and my pace. We work with a book, but she always has extra material which helps me to push the boundaries.

"Kerstin worked with my son in preparation for the GERMAN SAT Subject test. She was excellent. Kerstin was always punctual, professional and personable. She is able to combine a structured approach to learning with a cool, "lets make this fun" attitude which works beautifully with teenagers. My son, though a good student, could not reliably have aced this German Subject test on his own. Kerstin was able to motivate him to do his best, which is no small feat, since I am clueless as how to do this myself. She has also tutored my younger son in German with equally remarkable results. Both my kids adore her and there is no whining about her tutoring sessions. HIGHLY recommended."

"We have been working with Wolfgang for about five weeks now. He is always very well-prepared for each lesson, with a clear goal in mind. He does a great job of adding humor to keep my nine year old son engaged in this new and not always easy language! I chose Wolfgang because German is his mother-tongue and he has extensive teaching experience with a range of ages. I have not been disappointed- he pays careful attention to cultivating accent, which is important and the best part of having a native speaker for a teacher."

"The past five months spent with Henry teaching me my second language has been worthwhile. My decision to choose him as my instructor has paid off exponentially. He immediately immerses you in the language and steadily increases your exposure as you gain proficiency. This is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher, someone to push and challenge me to learn but also there when I was having difficulty.

As someone who has zero experience with the German language he definitely provided the firm foundation I needed to confidently continue my studies alone. I have no doubt when the time comes for more lessons I will revert back to Henry.

Er ist ein sehr guter Lehrer!"
