Abi is a great teacher. She always comes up with very practical methods to improve my specific skills and I benefit a lot from here. And you can feel her teaching passion too!

Abigail was an enthusiastic teacher who helped spread her love of the violin. She is classically trained and works on the fundamental skills a young violinist needs. Our child enjoyed her sense of humor as well.

Private German Teacher

I love all things German and my aim is to encourage my students to feel the same. I've been teaching German for 5 years. My students go from knowing no German to being able to hold conversations to eventually completing their grad studies in a German speaking country!

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and before you know it be a German whizz. I try to base my lessons around modern German pop culture typically using current events as inspiration. My lessons feature video links, audio, worksheets, textbooks, and more.

Private German Teacher

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!

Ryan has been very helpful in my attempt to learn some German skills at the last minute before traveling to Germany. Online apps were helping me to learn some vocabulary but really don't explain any grammar or common ways of speaking versus literal translations. Having a tutor has been a huge help and with my crazy work/travel schedule I don't think I'd have been able to take lessons without Ryan's flexible schedule.
Steve
Terrific experience and very organized lesson plans. Highly recommend!
Emily S.
I debated whether I should just try learning German on my own, but I'm definitely glad I made the investment in lessons with Ryan. He has taught me things that I know would've taken a lot longer to learn on my own. He's also great at customizing lessons to suit individual learning goals, and his flexible schedule makes setting up lessons easy. If you're serious about learning German, Ryan is a great instructor!

I have experience with languages and grammar, and I know that everyone learn in a different way, for some people is easier than for others. My challenge is to find what is easier for you.

About Isabel

I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different

I'm a native German living in the United States so I'm able to communicate with you easily.

I've learned both the Berlitz method of teaching and teaching adults with the General Assembly method.

Berlitz Method: this lets you approach a new language in a natural fashion. In my classes you will speak and hear German the same way you would if you moved to Germany. It's an immersive experience.

General Assembly Teaching: I've been taught how to teach in an effective style that makes learning fun.

About Andrea

I'm a native German speaker who teaches German in the Berlitz Method and has been trained by General Assembly on how to teach to adults. This means you will learn German in a natural fashion. You will learn it as though you were in Germany. I will help you boost your self-confidence and motivation

"Most highly recommended! I found Wolfgang to be an excellent German instructor for me. As a mature (50+) professional I was looking for a native German with perfect mastery of English and impeccable teaching credentials. Wolfgang fit that description perfectly. He tailored the lessons to my needs and made them fun. Along with the excellent language lessons, I really enjoyed his stories about life in Germany, and especially his hometown of Berlin. Thanks to Wolfgang I am much farther along my journey of learning to speak German."
