Guten Tag! I completed my master's degree in linguistics at the Free University of Berlin and spent a total of over four years in Germany. Whenever I speak with natives, they tell me that my German is excellent, practically without accent! I would love to help students who are just getting started with German or who are already moving into the conversational level. I also have a lot of great German language learning materials that could be incorporated into the lessons. Ich freue mich darauf mit Ihnen zu arbeiten! (I look forward to working with you!)

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.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! Yay! We can start in-person lessons again, as long as basic distancing is kept. I have been vaccinated and I would prefer my students to be vaccinated, too, but it's not a deal breaker. I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speaker

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

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!
