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 the Netherlands she was offered an internship at the local Music School which she gratefully accepted and where she enjoyed her first voice coaching experience. There she was also nominated as one of the most promising young singer/songwriters at the LUX Festival in Nijmegen. Over the years she was blessed with more and more private students in voice as well as piano. During her stay in New York she received the opportunity to work with a Broadway show ensemble ("Dreamgirls") as a Music Director on their different harmonic parts. She's proudly b
een a member of the Music of Oz Studio staff in Crown Point, Indiana since Jan. 2011 and is looking forward to teaching out of her home now as well. Chrissy is crazy about all her students and wants them to succeed! She's very much looking forward to working with you and having buckets of fun! :-)

I am a native German speaker and have been teaching German since September 2011.
My students are pre-k -12 th Graders and occasionally adults, mostly Business German. SAT prep for German and German with listening.

About Kerstin
I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in June 2007 with a Master in Education (Arts in Education) degree. During my studies I worked in the framework of the Artful Adventures Program (Museum of Fine Arts in Boston), which provides object - based learning and hands on artistic experiences for elementary and middle school kids. My own research was about “Creative Insight in Practice" and "Acquiring English as a Second Language and Developing Self-Esteem through the Idiom of Art". I have more than a two decades-long experience in painting, drawing, printmaking and installation work.The images I use in my work are mostly based on self-made or collected photos or drawings from nature combined with literature or self-made phrases. I use digital tools in order to layer text, photos and drawings and combine them to a new work.
Photo and text based collages will often merge into drawings or watercolors and these are the starting point for my large scale oil paintings.

Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.

She was absolutely patient and was able to work with and engage my son who has a learning disability. She did a great job making him feel comfortable and after only one session I could see his confidence go up as he continued to draw into the evening. She really enjoys what she does and it shows in the way she worked with my son.

Would you like to prepare for your next vacation? Do you need to learn German for your new job, or do you just want to improve your skills you've learned in school?

As a native German I can teach you German on a high level! The best way to do that is starting with a simple conversation. Learning through talking, gestures and pictures is the most natural and easy way to be successful in a new language!

As I'm from Hanover I speak the cleanest German with no accent at all! My knowledge of grammar and syntax will help you to learn the 'correct' German!

About Judith
Hi there!

I am Judith, a professional Pop/Rock/Jazz singer and pianist. In 2009 I've got my Master's degree in Popular Music Voice Education at the University of Music & Drama in Hanover, Germany, and for more than 10 years I've worked as a voice instructor and freelance singer/pianist in Germany, the UK, Egypt, Greece and now Houston, TX.

My approach to singing is to combine the voice with your whole body in order to reach higher registers, gain more power and lose strain and fears! I would love to help you to enjoy singing even more - in an effortless and comfortable way!

I've prepared previous students for music college or university auditions, plenty successfully graduated!

Content of my lessons are:

- speech level singing
- belting
- ear training
- breathing techniques
- score reading
- improvisation/scat
- son
gs from the popular music genre (Jazz, Rock, Pop)
- body & posture as a support for your singing
- singing harmonies

I can't wait to meet you and to start singing with you!

*****I can travel farther than 10 miles on a case by case basis. For distances greater than 10 miles, I do also charge additional. Please feel free to message me directly to discuss rates and times for that.

Judith is an amazong teacher. She has patience and lots of positive energy. She really reached my daughter and was able to help develop her understanding of how to sing, how to use her mouth/body as an instrument. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to improve their singing!

I studied in Germany for six months and am in love with language and culture! I believe the easiest way to learn a language is by using the language how you would in the country. Lessons with me would involve conversations, reading German news articles, and listening to German music. I hope you will love Germany as much as I do!

About Winnie
I am currently a preschool music teacher and am very passionate about music and children! I teach infants to five year old but have also done private lessons with elementary school-aged students. Flute is my main instrument but I also play piccolo, ukulele and a little bit of piano. I am also passionate about languages, especially German!

Pilot Point, TX

I have lived and worked in Germany throughout my life in addition to studying German and German literature academically and professionally. I am also a superglot which means I speak more than ten languages fluently. I know how to learn languages and how to teach others to quickly and confidently acquire a language.

I teach using a heavily modified Michel method (the method the US State Department uses to teach diplomats foreign languages in weeks) based on the most recent scientific findings about how we acquire language and my 25+ years of learning literally dozens of languages.

This isn't just a lesson with some stock phrases you repeat and then try to remember. Using conversational techniques, you will start learning to speak German comfortably from the first day. Whether you want to be conversational for business, or improve your German to an academically high standard, I can help you realize your goals and become fluent in German in no time.

About Greg
Learning a language by memorizing long lists of words and phrases is BORING for both of us! I work with YOU to come up with the right way to learn a language to meet your goals and your skill level. I incorporate games, songs, current events, and unusual texts to help you remember what you read and hear.

You have the innate ability to learn a language. It's not as hard as everyone makes it out to be. Even babies do it! All kidding aside, the ability for an adult to learn a foreign language is actually BETTER Than a baby's. Think about it. Babies takes YEARS to be able to put together full sentences. In your first lesson with me, you'll learn at least one sentence perfectly - AND NEVER FORGET IT!

I teach a combination method that uses neurolinguistic programming, proven recall techniques and exercises (they're really games and songs a
nd puzzles and fun stuff) that are updated with everything we know about learning a language (And some stuff that I've figured out for myself after 30 years of language learning!)

You'll love learning with me as much as I'll love learning with you!

Additionally I tutor children DaF, DaZ and Elementary German, and with adults I like to work with the classic Themen books. Before I worked for Berlitz where I taught mostly adults. I am a native Austrian.
