What is my approach? First of all, I listen carefully, very carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to give good advice, guidance and then, of course, a plan, a kind of strategy to follow in order to reach these goals. There will be a permanent interaction between my client and myself to monitor the progress, eventually speed up the tempo or, if necessary, to slow down.
There is no dogma; there is only one main criterion: success.

About Wolfgang

My specialization is to prepare individuals for rigorous tests like the SAT I and II – German, AP German (Advanced Placement Test), and for the challenging German language admission test at universities in Germany. I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring

Wolfgang has a wealth of knowledge that he is able to teach in a simpler way to help me understand the language better. He goes at the pace I needed and stays on subject until I understand the topic. Highly recommend!!!
Kurleigh
Wolfgang is an amazing, tutor, teacher and mentor. I’ve always had a desire to learn German and Wolfgang has fostered and great learning environment that has allowed me to continue to pursue my passion.
In my time with Wolfgang I have gained a greater appreciation for the German language, culture and idiosyncrasies. He has far-reaching expertise that goes beyond a text book. His linguistic knowledge will keep you on the right track and he will ensure you are having a fun time as well.
In the two years I have known Wolfgang he has been generous, challenging and a joy to be around and I look forward to each class.
Patric
Wolfgang is an excellent teacher and more importantly a great resource! He takes his time and quickly determines the best learning techniques (and also the pace) for his students. I have always dreamed of being able to speak a second language and with the help from Wolfgang, I can speak with native speakers, read in the language and even use it in my professional setting. Wolfgang truly has taught me far more than the basics and more importantly keeps me motivated for more!

Wolfgang is not only extremely knowledgeable of the German language in its grammatical form, but also the culture, the usage of the language, and the history of the language as well. He will no doubt give you the most in depth explanations for any questions you may have and will also do it without making you feel ashamed for asking! His lessons are fun, intuitive, and extremely helpful.

I highly recommend Wolfgang for your language learning goals! He is always punctual, always prepared, and answers any questions you may have, no matter how many times he has to explain it! Please give him a chance, he is a wealth of knowledge, makes his lessons fun, and I promise you will not regret it!!

Tatiana is so helpful and patient! I’m writing sentences and learning about so many subtle points of grammar. Russian is really fascinating, and Tatiana inspires me!
Robert
I have been studying German with Tatiana for several months and it has been a wonderful experience. After our initial conversation, I knew that I had found the right teacher. Tatiana's lessons are always interesting and enjoyable. Our lessons are conducted entirely in German and Tatiana is able to explain complex ideas and topics in ways that teach and challenge me at the same time. Since I am an advanced learner, we also spend time reviewing grammar, working on increasing vocabulary, and reading texts. Every week my fluency increases.

Tatiana is knowledgeable, patient, and an excellent teacher. I would recommend her to anyone who is trying to learn and/or improve their German. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, Tatiana is the teacher for you. I give her my highest recommendation.
Karina
Tatiana is amazing! I really would never trade her for the world. She is patient, nonjudgmental, knowledgeable, thorough, clear, and just overall great. If it weren’t for her I would’ve quit a long time ago. I highly recommend her. You won’t be disappointed. Danke schön Tatiana!!

Using books and online materials, I guide students through grammatical rules, vocabulary and pronunciation, using cultural examples as illustration. I'll buy whichever books are the most relevant to a student's level, age, and needs, and also ask my student to buy the book too. Some of these books can be used without a private teacher, in any case!
I learned German grammar with a very strict teacher, many years ago, and she was right to be strict: grammar is the backbone of the German language.
I collaborate with my German sister, who lives in Germany.

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone
