Karin N.

Miami, FL

I grew up in the German part of Switzerland. I was exposed to the language throughout my schooling years. In my professional life as a doctor's assistant and later CEO assistant I needed to communicate daily in the German language. I studied business for 3 years. Over the last 3 years I have taught numerous people German. Some only need a little guidance, others keep on coming back to master more fluent conversation.

I'm flexible with my time and willing to adapt to my students' needs.

Ms. Karin is a very pleasant lady. I am extremely pleased to have her as an instructor. My daughter was very happy to meet her and enjoyed going over the first lessons and getting to learn German. She made it enjoyable for her to learn and she can't wait to continue on with taking future classes.

Thank you again Ms. Karin

Jonathan B.

State College, PA

German started in my extended family and has gradually become a central part of my life. First I studied German for five years in grammar school. Then I traveled to Germany multiple times, and hosted Couschsurfers from Germany and Austria. My nephews are being raised bilingual in English and German, and I have both native and second language German speakers in my nuclear and extended family. Having this broad perspective on how German fits in the landscape of international communication, I can adapt a students' education to fit their needs whether it be in mastering school skills or learning German for travel, work or to build relationships.

Jonathan is younger than I expected, but his knowledge of and passion for music is undeniable. I would venture a guess that he's a musical genius. He has a phenomenal voice that he's obviously spent a lot of time developing. More importantly, he has classical voice training and knows how to teach effective techniques. Before I took lessons with him, I didn't realize that I'm perfectly capable of hitting a high C because I didn't know how to sing properly. Jonathan was a great help and I would highly recommend him.

Wolfgang S.

San Antonio, TX

What is my approach? First of all, I listen 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 reach the goals of the student. 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.

We have been working with Wolfgang for about five weeks now. He is always very well-prepared for each lesson, with a clear goal in mind. He does a great job of adding humor to keep my nine year old son engaged in this new and not always easy language! I chose Wolfgang because German is his mother-tongue and he has extensive teaching experience with a range of ages. I have not been disappointed- he pays careful attention to cultivating accent, which is important and the best part of having a native speaker for a teacher.
