Would you like to prepare for your next vacation? Do you need to learn German for your new job, or do you just want to improve your skills you've learned in school?

As a native German I can teach you German on a high level! The best way to do that is starting with a simple conversation. Learning through talking, gestures and pictures is the most natural and easy way to be successful in a new language!

As I'm from Hanover I speak the cleanest German with no accent at all! My knowledge of grammar and syntax will help you to learn the 'correct' German!

About Judith

Hi there! I am Judith, a professional Pop/Rock/Jazz singer and pianist. In 2009 I've got my Master's degree in Popular Music Voice Education at the University of Music & Drama in Hanover, Germany, and for more than 10 years I've worked as a voice instructor and freelance singer/pianist in Germany

I’ve worked with Judith for a few years now and she does a great job working with my goals for learning German. She is very patient and flexible with our learning and lessons!
ELSA
Judith is wonderful! All the issues I've had with my voice and singing for years, she addressed with pinpoint accuracy and expert instruction to help me correct them; even the things I didn't know how to explain! She has a great ear and a wealth of practical knowledge to share. After my first month of lessons, my singing is so much better! She is so kind and non-judgmental, and fun to work with, too. With Judith's help and encouragement, I'm hitting notes and singing songs I didn't think I had the range for and turning my good voice into a great voice. Thank you so much, Judith!
Jason
Excellent instruction and great personality! Highly recommend Judith!

Kerstin has been a great tutor for our son. Not only does he enjoy working with Kerstin, but his German skills have noticeably improved (along with his grades). Kerstin is a great communicator, always on-time, never cancelled and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend Kerstin.

Our daughter took to Kerstin right away. She did not want the lesson to end!

Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.

I offer lessons in Spanish, French, Italian and Beginner German. I have been teaching and tutoring languages for the past 4 years and have since developed a special tailored curriculum for all students. No student is taught in the exact same way by me, I will give you the individual and specific attention you need and help you form language acquisition goals that we can work on together. There are many materials and resources that I often use with students, so if you are a beginner I can offer helpful suggestions and methods for approaching the language you'd like me to teach you. For advanced students, we can focus on specific areas of interest. I guarantee quality of instruction and will maximize every minute of time to place you on the right path to success.
I am a past graduate from Case Western Reserve University where I specialized in Music and Language studies. For those who like the structured textbook approach, I do also offer University level grammar and literature ...

"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!"
