Astrid has been such a great teacher. We have worked privately in lessons through the recommendation of a friend of hours. I have always wanted to learn German, even though growing up in a German speaking family. Astrid was kind and patient, and my mind was immersed in a new language from day one. Now I can have fluent conversation with her and other friend in German after a few month of intense work. She is really skillful and tailors to your need. I give my highest recommendation to Astrid.

Private German Teacher

Hi there!
My name is Cassandra. My journey as a German speaker started off simple.
I'm a native English speaker and I took German in college without knowing a lick of German beforehand.
I later studied abroad in Vienna, Austria, and fell in love with the place - so much so that I moved there the next year in 2016 after I became A1 certified in the German language.

While residing there, I taught piano privately to children who only knew German, as well as taught English to a family who only spoke German and French.

I went further and took a language exam from the ÖSD in Vienna and became a certified B2 speaker in the German language.

I believe languages are a wonderful thing - they help us understand one another and expand our minds - helping us to grasp concepts which may not exist in another language.

I am here to help you become the best German speaker you can be :).

Michelle is great. Always on time and even when running only a couple minutes late she will let us know right away. Very nice with my 12 year old son. We have been taking lesson with Michelle for almost a year now and we think she is the best! I would highly recommend her for younger kids no matter what playing level.

German is a spoken language, so being able to speak it well is important. I work on building vocabulary, grammar, reading and writing. For students who are planning to travel in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria & Switzerland) we can also work on survival: basic words & phrases for travelers, and listening/understanding when spoken to.

I took away a whole array of new strategies and techniques to help preserve my voice and to increase my range. What a surprise- I had no idea I could sing so high!! Kathleen is a wonderful teacher and a really super lady. I'll be back for more lessons in the fall.
Nadia N.
My daughter is really enjoying her voice lessons. Kathleen is a talented, caring teacher and knows how to make the process effective and fun for my daughter. My daughter loves being able to choose the songs she wants to learn, and this collaborative process keeps her quite interested and inspired.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

"I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week."

"Wolfgang is a wonderful, tutor, teacher and mentor. For quite awhile I have wanted to learn to speak German. Wolfgang has and continues to guide me toward my goal.

Wolfgang is very patient, flexible and understanding. He has adapted his lessons to best fit my way of learning. This is no simple task in itself. But Wolfgang has found a method of teaching that goes well beyond words and phrases. It strengthens my understanding of the culture. This is critical to successfully comprehending any language.

Wolfgang is a true Linguist. His expertise is far-reaching, not just in syntax or morphology, but in the history from which the language is born. This knowledge is indispensable and cannot be found elsewhere."

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."
