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.

About Jonathan
I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn how to open up and knuckle down at the same time!

I am currently a full-time YouTube Creator, sidelining in cover bands and a solo act. Teaching is a big part of what I do online so I see my work as a private teacher as 'research' for the lessons I create. Although I'm firmly grounded in a classical music training, there's nothing you can ask about that I won't try to figure out. My favorite thing about teaching is using unexpected questions to develop new ideas that I then integrate into my original compositions. Check out my intro to the B
lues Raga video if you want to hear a good story about what I mean.

Jonathan has been a great teacher and excellent influence for Noah. During lessons, and in his practice during the week, Noah is being drawn in by both the challenges and rewards of learning to love and play the violin.

I am a native German and able to teach in every level and in dialects and accents as well.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

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.

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 field of German literature. Undoubtedly, my academic background (MA in German and English and a Ph.D. in the field of education) helps me to provide solid work for my students.

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 is no dogma; there is only one

Most highly recommended! I found Wolfgang to be an excellent German instructor for me. 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.

German was the first language I learned in high school, and I am very attached to the beautiful sound of it. While others think of German as harsh, I know it as the musical speech of a friendly and wonderful people. I very much enjoy sharing it with anyone who is interested in the challenge and the reward!

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.

I teach a dialect of German that some call Pennsylvania Dutch which is spoken by the Amish and Mennonites in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and Holmes County, Ohio. My parents were born Amish but have since left and I was raised learning this dialect as well as English.

For the sake of clarity, there is a difference between Pennsylvania Dutch and what I call Holmes County German. The difference is mostly in the accent and some words. I am from Holmes County, Ohio and would be teaching you basic vocabulary, phrases and helping perfect your pronunciation of the dialect.

I don't have any experience other than teaching the some useful phrases and vocabulary to some friends who wanted to learn. But I love teaching and especially enjoy teaching the language of my heritage!

About Tamra
I come from a community that values hard work and family. I hope to teach not only the language of my heritage but also the rich culture of it as well! Although I don't live and dress exactly like some of my Amish relatives, the culture is still part of me in many ways.
The lessons will be mainly focused on vocabulary and phrases for every day interactions and fun culture facts!
(And if I don't know the answer I could probably ask my grandma and she would know) :)

The Amish people in Holmes County, Ohio are very impressed when an "Englisher" comes to their community and isn't shy about practicing what they're learning. It also can create an instant respect or understanding of trust when you communicate in their heart language. Most can speak English very well, but at home and among themselves they still keep the language alive.
So if you
are looking to learn the basics before visiting our area and you want to impress and surprise the locals I would love to equip you for that!

Guten Tag! I completed my master's degree in linguistics at the Free University of Berlin and spent a total of over four years in Germany. Whenever I speak with natives, they tell me that my German is excellent, practically without accent! I would love to help students who are just getting started with German or who are already moving into the conversational level. I also have a lot of great German language learning materials that could be incorporated into the lessons. Ich freue mich darauf mit Ihnen zu arbeiten! (I look forward to working with you!)

About Emily
I am a certified and experienced ESL teacher who has traveled the globe and shared her skills abroad. I have a bachelor's degree in linguistics from Boston University and a master's degree in the same from the Free University in Berlin, Germany. I obtained my TESOL certificate from ITTT in 2010 while I was volunteering in a refugee English class in Denver. The following year I taught ESL to foreign boarding students at a high school in Maine. While living in Germany I taught adult English classes at public community colleges and children's English classes at an after school club, as well as giving multiple private lessons. While living in Switzerland I taught ESL to both children and adults at a private school. I have also volunteer taught at English camps for refugee adults and children in Lebanon. Like I said, I've been privileged to of
fer my skills all over the globe!

I speak both French and German fluently and can teach in these languages if need be, but mostly, having studied linguistics and other languages such as Russian and Arabic, I understand what it's like to be a learner of a foreign language. I studied the construction of languages and can easily break them down into their parts so that they are easier to wrap your head around.

My skills are not limited to teaching English only, but I am also an experienced proofreader and editor. I have edited myriad documents not only for private individuals but also in the academic and pharmaceutical sectors. So if you need help with writing or are looking for someone to proofread your written works, I can definitely offer this service.

Finally, as previously mentioned, I speak both French and German fluently and am happy to help beginner and intermediate learners to acquire these languages. Or if you just want someone to practice your skills with I can serve as your conversational partner!
