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 has been teaching German to both my kids for the past several years. Their grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation has improved dramatically. Kerstin has done a tremendous job tailoring her lessons to the different needs and learning preferences my children who very much appreciated this tailored approach. Most recently, Kerstin helped to prepare my oldest daughter for her German SAT subject test with outstanding results. I can highly recommend her.

Kerstin has been a great teacher for my two sons. Kerstin always made an special effort to provide teaching material that was not only age appropriate and appropriate for their level of proficiency, but was also tailored to their particular interests. Her teaching style is methodical, while also casual and interactive, and thus well suited to provide a positive learning experience, particularly for children and adolescents. Both my children have benefited greatly from her teaching and I would recommend her highly.

Wonderful online german classes. A lot of fun, and well prepared. Yana has an easy going teaching style, and is fun to chat to. She sets ample homework as requested. We often review material from previous lessons to ensure concepts, grammar and vocab have been learnt. Also Yana gives some great resources to help learn the language.

I am very happy with the Russian lessons I`ve had via Skype with my tutor Yana.
Each lesson she introduces a new topic in a well-planned way with the appropriate vocabulary and with special emphasis on pronunciation.
The lessons are very much as I requested and are proceeding at a pace commensurate with my ability to assimilate the content.
The lessons have been very instructive, at the same time relaxed & fun, so that I have no hesitation in recommending Yana as a Russian tutor.

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!

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 the past 10 years I've worked as a voice instructor and freelance singer/pianist in Germany, the UK, Egypt, Greece and 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 loose strain and fears! I help you to enjoy singing even more - in an effortless and comfortable way!

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 a once in a lifetime mentor and voice coach that will work with you no matter where you are in your musical journey. She's been flexible, kind, and patient with me despite the fact that I had no prior musical experience whatsoever. I really can't put into words how much she's helped me in developing a creative outlet for myself. She also has a great concern for her student's health and emphasizes teaching how to sing in a healthy way without damaging one's voice. I've been her student for just a few months and I feel like I walk away with significant improvement every time I see her. Overall, I simply can't recommend her highly enough.

I studied German at the University of Michigan and have spent a combined time of 18 months living in Germany. I know what it takes to learn a this language from scratch and can help you improve your skills and grades in your high school or college German class.

Ich freue mich drauf!!!

About Ryan
My lessons are laid back, fun, and practical. You develop the goals you want to achieve by pursuing a subject, and we tackle it and go after them together.

English as a foreign language and beginner to intermediate German are my specialties. I love English and I love language. I studied German at the University of Michigan and understand the difficulties that can come with learning or improving language skills. I lived in Germany two times, once for six months and again for a year, and spent a couple months living in Peru. These experiences taught me that learning a language is best done in two ways: with native speakers, and with full immersion. This is the philosophy I bring to my lessons.

As for US history, if you're interested in learning a lot of things they didn't teach you in school then I'm your guy. Areas that are especia
lly fun for me: Colonial history, Imperial Crisis & American Revolution, the Blundering Generation and the Civil War they caused, and the Second World War.

If you are interested in hearing more about my lessons and teaching philosophy, just drop me a line.

I am very excited to go on this journey with you!!

Ryan is an outstanding instructor that fits his lessons to meet your need. He effectively breaks down grammar and sentence structure in a way that makes the student not feel overwhelmed. Flexibility is not an issue with Ryan and he will work hard to make sure that your lesson with him is educational from start to finish.

Diana was one of the best tutors I have ever had the pleasure of learning with. She is extremely kind and thoughtful, bringing something special to every encounter. She is also one of the most timely people I have ever met, never showing up less than ten minutes early. She encouraged me every step of the way and never made me feel as though I was learning at too slow of a pace. Her sense of humor is also amazing, making tutoring feel more like hanging with an old friend. Give her a chance to be your tutor and I can guarantee you will not regret it.
