German is my favorite language and is the one that I have studied the most during my years of college. As a self studier, I have perfected the skills of ensuring a student to be extremely productive during his or her own time. I am fluent in Mandarin and proficient in French and Russian. I have published a book documenting all the tips and strategies I've inherited on my own. Since German is not my native tongue, I know how to teach it from a technical point of view, rather from feeling. I'm a 19 y/o attending Pepperdine University pursuing a Mechanical Engineering major. Languages is my hobby and it should be yours too!

This was my first time taking vocal lessons. Madeleine is professional and knowledgeable. She has taught me vocal exercises and has provided very helpful direction for improving my singing voice. Thank you!
Elia
Madeleine is an amazing teacher! Super professional, and she knows so much about singing technique, so she can give you specific and very helpful pointers to make your voice sound the best. She also has a great ear and is so good at singing herself! Additionally, she dedicates time outside of class to provide you with resources and exercises to help you practice and get better. Would definitely recommend taking lessons with her! Already have noticed my singing getting so much better :)
Elena
Madeleine has been a great teacher! She is very skilled in finding the best ways and exercises to help you attain your singing goals. I have had only 4 lessons with her and I am (as well as my family) already noticing my singing voice improving!

I am an experienced native speaking German tutor who has been teaching students of all ages and levels. I am a certified Montessori Teacher. I believe in gently guiding, supporting, encouraging but also challenging my students. I love to share many fun facts , i.e. hilarious literal translations, as well as cultural and historical background of Germany. This will give my student a well balanced foundation, he /she will really experience the language, get a “real feel” for it! I customize my curriculum to my students needs, wishes and goals. After a few lessons my students can speak easy sentences and phrases in German already, they will understand even more and will use their newly acquired skills continuously. I strongly stress speaking in my native language to my students from an early point on. It is very important to me to make the language learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience! There shall be lots of laughter! However diligent work and great effort is necessary

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!

"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."

"I studied German with Erol for a little over a year while I was living in LA. It was a great experience. At the time I could barely speak a word of German, but our weekly meetings very quickly started to give me confidence. In our sessions, we tried numerous methods: we read children's books, made small talk, and eventually discussed German literature. During our time together, Errol was uncommonly patient, generous with his time, and flexible about scheduling. My experience having been so positive, I'd recommend him as a tutor to anyone hoping to improve their knowledge of spoken and/or written German."

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."
