Miami, FL

View Full Profile

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.

About Karin
Guten Tag,
My name is Karin. I was born and raised in Switzerland. However, Miami is my home now. I love the unique melting pot of Miami. No wonder so many German speaking tourists, investors and patrons are visiting here.

Over more than ten years I have taught numerous people the German language. Some of them only need a little guidance to have a more pleasant traveling experience to Germany. Others keep on coming back to master fluent conversation and writing skills. I'm passionate about tutoring. My goal is to provide an atmosphere that will facilitate an ongoing level of improvement in my students' speaking, writing proficiency. You'll see this by the way I teach. I am flexible with my time and adapt easily to my students' needs. As a first step I get familiar with your expectations. Secondly I recommend an approach that fits you
. Thirdly I want you to have fun and learn in an interactive way.

Bis bald!

I studied German in college and have spoken a little in the years since. I decided that I wanted to improve my skills and work with a native German speaker. I’ve been working with Karin for the past few weeks. She’s a fantastic instructor. She understands and can explain clearly the finer points of German grammar and usage. And she has provided great follow-up to any questions I had, and has given useful exercise and other resources to help me improve my German. She has been very encouraging. I feel very comfortable working with her and recommend her highly.

I highly recommend, the best teacher I’ve had. Responsible! Caring!

I took TOEFL perpetration classes with Henry. He is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. Because of his experience in journalism he has amazing knowledge in writing, reading, speaking, He worked on my general English skills first because I thought I had enough proficiency in English while I didn't, and after some classes he started TOEFL, he definitely knows what area of English I was weak in so, step by step, he lead me in the right direction. He's very responsible and carrying. I got a higher score than I was expecting.

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 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.

I can help you with conversational German and correct pronunciation. I can also tutor grammar and vocabulary for those enrolled in a class. Or translate family letters from German to English.

About Siri
I am passionate about providing the most well-rounded music training to singers and pianists of all ages. This includes learning healthy technique, sight-reading, theory and analysis, and appropriate repertoire. Singers also learn acting techniques. Flutists can get a solid start on their instrument with good tone and note-reading skills. I have MM degrees in Voice and Piano Performance and Instrumental Conducting and am nationally certified in piano teaching through MTNA. I am an active member of both MTNA and NATS.

I started learning German through what is now the Concordia Language Villages. I spent my senior year of high school as an exchange student in the southern Black Forest of Germany and took several high-level German classes in college. My pronunciation of Hoch Deutsch is perfect. (And I know a wee bit of the local dialect t

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

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.

Fort Lauderdale, FL

hello! I'm Iryna and I have a Bachelor's Degree in English and German. I generated a large number of students and was able to create captivating lesson plans that taught them a balance of grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening. Generally, I like to use all kinds of interactive activities and keep my students interested. During the first class I usually do a quick evaluation, talk about the books and the course itself.

About Iryna
Hi!
I am Iryna. I am a native Russian and Ukrainian speaker. Teaching is my hobby. From the time when I got my BA in Education, until today when teaching my students from different parts of the world, I have not stopped learning and expanding my knowledge about cultural diversities. I have 10 years of teaching experience. I started as a private tutor in Ukraine, teaching English to children and adults. I graduated with honors from State Pedagogical University majoring in English, German and Russian in 2010.

I enjoy creating interesting lesson plans and I like to provide my students with interactive materials. When I moved to the USA, my dream came true. I was hired at Language Tutoring Center and had a pleasure to teach students from South Korea, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Austria and India. At the end of each se
mester, I was hosting Parent Open Houses, where my students could show their great improvements. My students were able to successfully pass TOEFL, ESL and German final exams, etc.

When teaching my students I like to use various resources like Oxford University Press textbooks, audio and video recordings, movies, songs, poems, tongue-twisters, charts, tables, interactive games, and so much more.

Happy learning!

Iryna

I took Russian lessons with Ms. Iryna for one year during my senior year of high school, and she was such an encouraging teacher and helped me learned so much that I decided to pursue a Russian major in college. She is really sweet and works hard to tailor her lessons to each individual student's interests and learning preferences. She knew that I really enjoy music, and so she would send me playlists of Russian songs to help me work on my listening and vocabulary skills. She is also extremely organized and comes to each lesson with a written out lesson plan. She definitely deserves a 5 out of 5 stars!
