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 is very knowledgeable and has helped me to develop great awareness on how l speak and what to do to reduce my accent. In a month l already noticed some improvement.
Rosa Mac
Very pleased with the course and the instructor. Even though it was a miscommunication at the beginning, we were able to connect with the instructor's information. (Takelessons sends one meeting code, and instructor send another one????). Class was good, instructor very nice, organized and patient (2 hrs time zone difference). Will continue class in the future. I highly recommend Erol.

LOVE!! Erol is so skilled!! Best Instructor Ever! :)

Susan is a fantastic and committed teacher.
Rachel
I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.

Jawohl! I love the German language and sharing it with others! I have spent time living in both Austria and Germany, and have learned the language and culture inside and out by living with host families. I love integrating my knowledge of German culture into my lessons, in addition to making sure students get their basic vocab and grammar skills. The best way to learn a language is to use it!

About Jason

I believe that everyone has something to gain from learning piano, and I am passionate about sharing my love for music with as many people as possible. I maintain an active in-person studio with 25+ students, and also teach lessons online. A little bit about me: I am a professional pianist wit

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.
Leah Y. L.
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 an experienced native speaking German tutor who has been teaching students of all ages and levels. I am a certified Montessori Teacher. I believe in gently guiding, supporting, encouraging but also challenging my students. I love to share many fun facts , i.e. hilarious literal translations, as well as cultural and historical background of Germany. This will give my student a well balanced foundation, he /she will really experience the language, get a “real feel” for it! I customize my curriculum to my students needs, wishes and goals. After a few lessons my students can speak easy sentences and phrases in German already, they will understand even more and will use their newly acquired skills continuously. I strongly stress speaking in my native language to my students from an early point on. It is very important to me to make the language learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience! There shall be lots of laughter! However diligent work and great effort is necessary

"Great lesson on the Dative case and how it can look in different sentences or and ways of being phrased, and the underlying theory of how it works. Learned new words and went over some dialogues. Erol is very professional, and his method is descriptive and calming. I appreciate he speaks in German and switches only when I need help understanding, because it helps train my listening skills. Looking forward the the next lesson."
