Hello my name is Verena!

I am a German native speaker and currently teaching German at a Language Center in Orlando. I believe in the method of "Learning by doing" which means that I engage my students to actively use the new language, learn in a natural way using real life objects and creating real life situation.

I have a post graduate degree from a German University and worked for several years as a teacher in educational science and was additionally responsible for the supervision of Bachelor and Master Theses in German language.

On these grounds, I am ideally educated to help you with your verbal and written skills in German language. If you just want to be able to have social talks, ask for direction, order food, or if you are interested in intensive language skills - I am here to help you!

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.

My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven media-enriched, and comparative introduction for the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as family, travel, outdoor, seasons, and custom themes for an optimal lesson experience.
For example, students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of audio monitoring software during online lessons to help approximate accent issues between different languages. Students obtain a repository of audio files to complement each lesson. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Easy German and Google Earth, turns German into a good choice for a second or additional language.
I grew up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed German credits at the college level. Therefore, ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda H.
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

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.

"Madleine is an outstanding German instructor. I’ve been taking weekly private lessons with her for over a year. Aside from being a native speaker who is also fluent in English, she has a natural knack for languages in general which makes her effective at identifying not just when I make a grammatical or vocabulary mistake, but why. This speeds the learning process. I am thrilled at my progress over the past year, and was delighted that I could follow conversations and comfortably move around Germany when I traveled there last fall. Before the trip we tailored my lessons to include role-play scenarios related to cafés, train stations, hotels, asking directions on the street, etc. Madleine is happy to incorporate contemporary culture into lessons, so that for example we discuss (in German) German Netflix shows like “Dark,” or translate lyrics from German music. As far as course administration, she’s flexible and responsive, which is important to me since I travel a lot for my job and often have to reschedule. I absolutely recommend Maddie as a German instructor!"

"If you are looking for a caring, friendly and very experienced learning facilitator in the German language and culture, then you need look no further than Wolfgang Soldan. Mr. Soldan was my instructor in a conversational German class at the former UTB Language Institute in Brownsville. I liked him as a teacher so much that I later sought him out for additional private lessons, which he provided to me in his home at a very reasonable price. I was very impressed with Mr. Soldan in both situations. Mr. Soldan was always extremely well prepared. He challenged me with a variety of interesting and fun learning activities. He tailored the lessons to my level of experience. He was even reasonably available for additional assistance outside of our arranged meetings. With a lifelong passion for teaching and the arts, Mr. Soldan has also accumulated a wealth of knowledge about additional learning resources to supplement your individual experience. Mr. Soldan built on my existing level of German and left me with a stronger foundation as well as desire to continue my studies. Mr. Soldan has my highest recommendation to provide you with a superior learning experience that will be well worth your time and money. You will be in good hands with Mr. Soldan. Contact him now!"
