I first started learning German due to a serendipitous move to Oklahoma following my junior year of high school. I have since really grown to love the German language and ended up getting a BA in German Studies (jointly with a BA in Spanish). I really love German literature, whether it's Goethe or Michael Ende, and I really enjoy Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Händel, and also Lieder (Shubert's "Erlkönig" being my favorite). I am also a huge fan of Die Prinzen. I consider myself an expert in grammar-related topics (including verb conjugation, cases, Konjunktiv I and II, etc.) but am also willing to teach vocabulary, pronunciation, and other topics.

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!

This was my first lesson with Verena. I thoroughly enjoyed it, she answered all my questions that I had in the class. She was able to cater to my focus on learning both the grammar and the speaking of German. She is also very great to interact with. She is an awesome teacher! Cannot wait for the next lesson. I would recommend her.

First lesson complete! - I believe Verena will be a perfect instructor for me.

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.

I offer different time options to suit your needs and am also happy to discuss group lessons if you wish to learn with your partner/family member/friend. Please reach out to discuss pricing options for those.

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!

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!

Excellent instruction and great personality! Highly recommend Judith!

"Wolfgang is a wonderful, tutor, teacher and mentor. For quite awhile I have wanted to learn to speak German. Wolfgang has and continues to guide me toward my goal.

Wolfgang is very patient, flexible and understanding. He has adapted his lessons to best fit my way of learning. This is no simple task in itself. But Wolfgang has found a method of teaching that goes well beyond words and phrases. It strengthens my understanding of the culture. This is critical to successfully comprehending any language.

Wolfgang is a true Linguist. His expertise is far-reaching, not just in syntax or morphology, but in the history from which the language is born. This knowledge is indispensable and cannot be found elsewhere."

"Wolfgang is an excellent teacher and more importantly a great resource! He takes his time and quickly determines the best learning techniques (and also the pace) for his students. I have always dreamed of being able to speak a second language and with the help from Wolfgang, I can speak with native speakers, read in the language and even use it in my professional setting. Wolfgang truly has taught me far more than the basics and more importantly keeps me motivated for more!

Wolfgang is not only extremely knowledgeable of the German language in its grammatical form, but also the culture, the usage of the language, and the history of the language as well. He will no doubt give you the most in depth explanations for any questions you may have and will also do it without making you feel ashamed for asking! His lessons are fun, intuitive, and extremely helpful.

I highly recommend Wolfgang for your language learning goals! He is always punctual, always prepared, and answers any questions you may have, no matter how many times he has to explain it! Please give him a chance, he is a wealth of knowledge, makes his lessons fun, and I promise you will not regret it!!"

"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."

"Kerstin worked with my son in preparation for the GERMAN SAT Subject test. She was excellent. Kerstin was always punctual, professional and personable. She is able to combine a structured approach to learning with a cool, "lets make this fun" attitude which works beautifully with teenagers. My son, though a good student, could not reliably have aced this German Subject test on his own. Kerstin was able to motivate him to do his best, which is no small feat, since I am clueless as how to do this myself. She has also tutored my younger son in German with equally remarkable results. Both my kids adore her and there is no whining about her tutoring sessions. HIGHLY recommended."
