I worked with Tatiana for several weeks in order to brush up on my german which I once knew quite well. Tatiana was a great help by assessing where I was and immediately putting together lessons that were perfect for me. I highly recommend her as a german teacher at any level.

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

I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring and co-authoring textbooks for the English classroom. During my stay in the US, I had the opportunity to develop curricula for teaching German in public schools as well as private schools and wrote articles in the f

Wolfgang is very thorough and has been very patient with me, making certain I learn proper German pronunciation and grammar. The details of his instruction are far more detail oriented and accurate than community education style classes I have taken previously.
Cindy
Lessons with Wolfgang S. are always a pleasure. He is highly professional, friendly, and tailored all my lessons exactly to fit my needs and interests. He quickly pinpoints any areas that need help, and offers gentle corrections and suggestions to improve. His teaching methods are always interesting, varied, and fun. I learned a lot not only about grammar and vocabulary, but about German culture, and nuances and history of the language that can only be learned from a native speaker with his teaching experience. His explanations to questions are clear and thorough, and he made sure I understood before moving on. He adjusted the pace to my skills and needs without any pressure. I have definitely improved in all areas since taking lessons with him.
Tabatha S.
Wolfgang helped me believe in my confidence to reengage in learning German after 20 years wothout lessons or practice. He is thorough, patient and encouraging. I look forward to future lessons

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!

Our first experience with Christina was pleasant. She took her time to get to know my daughter and I appreciate her involving me in the session. She gave me suggestions to help my daughter with reading which I never thought of. I feel that she will help my daughter improve with not only her reading but also her confidence. We can't wait to start this journey with Christina.

"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!"
