Tatiana is so helpful and patient! I’m writing sentences and learning about so many subtle points of grammar. Russian is really fascinating, and Tatiana inspires me!
Robert
I have been studying German with Tatiana for several months and it has been a wonderful experience. After our initial conversation, I knew that I had found the right teacher. Tatiana's lessons are always interesting and enjoyable. Our lessons are conducted entirely in German and Tatiana is able to explain complex ideas and topics in ways that teach and challenge me at the same time. Since I am an advanced learner, we also spend time reviewing grammar, working on increasing vocabulary, and reading texts. Every week my fluency increases.

Tatiana is knowledgeable, patient, and an excellent teacher. I would recommend her to anyone who is trying to learn and/or improve their German. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, Tatiana is the teacher for you. I give her my highest recommendation.
Karina
Tatiana is amazing! I really would never trade her for the world. She is patient, nonjudgmental, knowledgeable, thorough, clear, and just overall great. If it weren’t for her I would’ve quit a long time ago. I highly recommend her. You won’t be disappointed. Danke schön Tatiana!!

Kerstin has been a great tutor for our son. Not only does he enjoy working with Kerstin, but his German skills have noticeably improved (along with his grades). Kerstin is a great communicator, always on-time, never cancelled and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend Kerstin.

I love all things German and my aim is to encourage my students to feel the same. I've been teaching German for 5 years. My students go from knowing no German to being able to hold conversations to eventually completing their grad studies in a German speaking country!

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and before you know it be a German whizz. I try to base my lessons around modern German pop culture typically using current events as inspiration. My lessons feature video links, audio, worksheets, textbooks, and more.

I offer different time options to suit your needs and am also happy to discuss group lessons if you wish to learn with your partner/family member/friend. Please reach out to discuss pricing options for those.

I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent German tutor and teacher. My father is Swiss-German and my mother's ancestors are mostly German. I knew a bit of German growing up but I took German classes in school from ages 12-18 and ended up with an International Baccalaureate certificate in German. I also love German people and culture so come and learn with me, it would be my honor to teach you!

"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."

"Wolfgang is an excellent teacher and more importantly a great resource! He takes his time and quickly determines the best learning techniques (and also the pace) for his students. I have always dreamed of being able to speak a second language and with the help from Wolfgang, I can speak with native speakers, read in the language and even use it in my professional setting. Wolfgang truly has taught me far more than the basics and more importantly keeps me motivated for more!

Wolfgang is not only extremely knowledgeable of the German language in its grammatical form, but also the culture, the usage of the language, and the history of the language as well. He will no doubt give you the most in depth explanations for any questions you may have and will also do it without making you feel ashamed for asking! His lessons are fun, intuitive, and extremely helpful.

I highly recommend Wolfgang for your language learning goals! He is always punctual, always prepared, and answers any questions you may have, no matter how many times he has to explain it! Please give him a chance, he is a wealth of knowledge, makes his lessons fun, and I promise you will not regret it!!"
