Georgina is a wonderful teacher. I've struggled trying to find the right program to learn spanish, but with Georgina I've found the perfect guide. Each lesson has been well crafted to fit my own needs. Highly recommended.

Mike P.
I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.

Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

About Chrissy

Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience. During her Music studies in

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

I have been through a multitude of instructors on other sites with horrid results and Mario is a keeper! He is organized, took the time to ask what I was looking to accomplish and then did some testing to see where I really was in the language on various levels. I am very much looking forward to advancing my french with Mario.

"So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey."

It might help to speak slower to him to separate the words more.. Other than that, it went so great! Very happy to try and extend the lessons to be 45min or 60min long."

Profile_125730_pi_Madleine%20Business%20Profile%20Pic
"Madleine is an outstanding German instructor. I’ve been taking weekly private lessons with her for over a year. Aside from being a native speaker who is also fluent in English, she has a natural knack for languages in general which makes her effective at identifying not just when I make a grammatical or vocabulary mistake, but why. This speeds the learning process. I am thrilled at my progress over the past year, and was delighted that I could follow conversations and comfortably move around Germany when I traveled there last fall. Before the trip we tailored my lessons to include role-play scenarios related to cafés, train stations, hotels, asking directions on the street, etc. Madleine is happy to incorporate contemporary culture into lessons, so that for example we discuss (in German) German Netflix shows like “Dark,” or translate lyrics from German music. As far as course administration, she’s flexible and responsive, which is important to me since I travel a lot for my job and often have to reschedule. I absolutely recommend Maddie as a German instructor!"
