Tutoring in beginner to intermediate German. Focus on conversation.

About Trevor
Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of
music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's
fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I
started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the
huge, black monstrosities that people in the pre-historic used in
place of iPods), followed closely by my father's CD collection.
After a while, this ravenous desire of to know and feel music moved
me to play an instrument. After a couple of false starts with the
drums and violin, I found my true musical calling: the guitar.

On January 25th 1995, on a whim, I began playing the
guitar, and I have yet to put it down. Along the way I've picked up
a number of friends for my guitar, including the bass, the lute, the
sitar and, once again, the drums. After on
ly a few years of
practice, I started playing professionally, in bands and solo guitar.
Live playing experience, I believe, is the most important experience
that any musician can have, in that, the most important part of music
is how it sounds, and playing in front of people is the quickest way
to learn how to play effectively. And this is what I teach; how to
be a musician, not just a technician.

*** Lesson Details ***
A student can expect a curriculum tailor-made to their needs and personality. Every person learns differently and this is an important distinction in my teaching style. Some students need a strong hand to keep them working, others need to find many different ways to the same conclusion to keep them focused, while still others need a laid-back friend in order to accept knowledge.

I stress rhythmic literacy, for, as my jazz teacher always said, "rhythm is king." If composition is important to you, then we'll focus on music theory, but if you're just wanting to learn how to play some fun rock tunes with your friends on the weekends, we can do that as well. As I stated before, we'll get you playing in front of people in no time.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier, a loner guitar (if needed), staff and/or tablature paper, metronome, pens and paper for the lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Music theory and composition, guitar, bass, lute, beginner to intermediate piano
Classical, shred, blues, and rock guitar; renaissance lute; blues, rock and slap bass; composition of many styles; world music.

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!

Karin is truly the best German instructor ever. The most important thing to me is that Karin helps me feel comfortable and confident in at not only reading and understanding German, but also speaking German. I am encouraged and helped at just the right level so I really know that I am learning how to read, write, and speak German in a German speaking country. But there are so many other things as well. The materials she uses are excellent. I get a copy of all the things she types during out on line learning sessions which helps me really learn and remember the German in the lesson. Karin has also sent me other materials such as useful phrases that I could use in situations in another country such as how to order and pay for food in a restaurant, how to tell the clerk what you want when reserving a hotel room, etc. In addition, I can always email Karin if I have a question or concern and Karin responds very quickly. At first, I was concerned that on-line lessons would not be as effective as a classroom lesson face to face. Karin immediately made me feel comfortable learning on line. Now I feel that I am getting more attention and personal one-on-one help more than I would ever get in a classroom. Karin is a really great German teacher.

I love learning German from Karin. As a "nervous language learner" I really appreciate not only Karin's knowledge of German but her patience. Karin inspires me to practice between lessons. The materials we are using is well chosen and and not only helps learning but also provides quick practice on my own. I look forward to my lessons and feel I am making good progress!

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.

I began learning German my freshman year of high school. The language came very easily to me, partly due to my very strong interest in German language and culture. I continued taking German all through High School through the AP test which I passed with a 4. After Graduation I moved to Sonoma State University where I studied briefly but made an array of German friends with whom I still speak occasionally. Having German friends allowed my proficiency and fluency to grow exponentially and through this experience I learned the importance of a one on one setting for language acquisition. I believe students of any language benefit greatly from time spent in informal discussions about everyday life, this builds the confidence that leads to fluency.

About Alexander
I've been a personal academic tutor since August of 2013 specializing in basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, and algebra 2 as well as English and German. I also love teaching music. I specialize in ukulele and guitar and have been playing guitar since I was 15 and picked up the ukulele at 18. I have experience teaching people of from 8 - 70 years old and with a wide range of backgrounds, needs, and goals.

A little about myself. I was born and raised in the Sacramento area. I have 3 younger siblings ranging from 10 to 12 years younger than me, so I have experience teaching younger children as well. One of my sisters is special needs with autism and mild CP. I understand the difficulties children with special needs can face in school especially in math and language arts. I am currently studying at Sierra college with a major in computer
science. I love teaching and learning and helping people succeed. There is no greater accomplishment than helping someone go from staring blankly at the task in front of them, to them suddenly grasping it, sharing in their success and sense of accomplishment is magical.

New York, NY

Being a native German-born speaker and actress I have raised three multi-lingual children with specific emphasis on German. In my performance career I have specialized in poetry recitals. I believe deeply in the sometimes unnoticed beauty of the German melodic language and its structured grammar, which greatly improves syntax of the written English language. I've taught for many years, individual and group lessons, for beginners through advanced students. I'm happy to help with the most basic grammar through advanced conversation, literature and writing.

About Dietlinde
I offer private coachings specializing in:
German Lieder and Arias
German Conversation, Literature and Poetry
English, German, French and Italian diction
Monologue and Scene Studies
Character Development and Interpretation
Script Breakdown and Analysis
Improvisation
Role Preparation
Audition Preparation
Career Guidance

My focus is on creating a new Mind-Body connection to yourself, your character and your voice. Utilizing fundamental acting principles, body language exercises, improvisation and monologue work I concentrate on each performer’s unique potential as a singer-actor while striving to develop the physical, vocal, emotional, and intellectual skills that enable the performer to work freely, joyfully and convincingly, also in a foreign language. I love to perform but my real passion is teaching. Patience is the
key. And curiosity. It’s the process, not the result. We walk across a tight rope together taking risks – knowing there is a safety net.

Ms. Dietlinde is a thorough, well rounded, competent, creative and artistic voice acting teacher who uses visual helps me to convey various emotional layers of a character in German Lider that she worked on with me. Consequently I was able to sing vividly with those image in mind. Her being a voice acting teacher has contributed something I didn't know before I met her. Additionally her warmth, enthusiasm and passion for life fuels the energy of each lesson which allowed me not only enjoy the technique part of the lesson but her personality as well.

About Sami
Love drives some to madness. But you know what love drove me to? German. Following a 6-month relationship with a German exchange student my junior year of high school, learning German became my life calling. I feel slightly guilty to admit my numerous hours spent religiously rehearsing different phrases, song lyrics, and grammar rules. Clearly my idea of fun was a bit skewed for a 16-year old hehe.

Spilling into my college years, my passion drove me to major in the German language and spend nearly 5 months in Germany teaching the youth about human rights and cultural understanding. My last month there, I was confused for a native on multiple occasions, which got me thinking - or dreaming, I should say. The dream that I'm working toward daily is to move to Germany and assist Middle Eastern refugees in assimilation, utilizing my Arabic a
nd German language skills. Step by step & day by day, I'm making my way to the beautiful Deutschland.
