German is my favorite language and is the one that I have studied the most during my years of college. As a self studier, I have perfected the skills of ensuring a student to be extremely productive during his or her own time. I am fluent in Mandarin and proficient in French and Russian. I have published a book documenting all the tips and strategies I've inherited on my own. Since German is not my native tongue, I know how to teach it from a technical point of view, rather from feeling. I'm a 19 y/o attending Pepperdine University pursuing a Mechanical Engineering major. Languages is my hobby and it should be yours too!

Engineering Major and have lived in three continents. I grew up speaking Mandarin and English, and my grandparents spoke Russian with me when I lived in China as a child. I grew up to be a strong language learner, being able to converse in about 8 languages. I have lived a year in Switzerla

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 was born and raised in Germany and have always loved languages and different cultures. During my years of schooling, I was lucky enough to study four languages and over my 25 years teaching career, I have taught three. German however, is by far my favorite, as it connects me to my heritage and a beautiful tradition in literature and music. I love working with students of all ages and have taught German to children of elementary school ages all the way to the college level, where I taught German as a Senior Lecturer for thirteen years. I have also tutored adults privately on an on-going basis. I simply love learning.
Here is an excerpt of a recommendation by a former colleague:
"Both in and outside of class, Ms. LaVoie was a pleasure. Colleagues appreciated her kind demeanor, thoughtful contributions, and collegial character. Students, likewise, recognized Ms. LaVoie’s compassion and sincerity. Of their teacher, one student wrote, “Professor LaVoie is one of the most caring and ...

Frau LaVoie is an incredible German teacher. She was my professor at Whitworth University and I thoroughly enjoyed her class. She challenges her students to go deeper into learning German while continuously supporting them along the way.
Tessa
Frau LaVoie was my German professor at Whitworth University. She always made class fun and the language easy to learn and understand. She taught songs and poems in order to give the language a beauty that others might miss. It was because of her teachings and encouragement that I was able to spend a year abroad in Germany and become fluent in German.
Sarah
Frau LaVoie is an amazing and empathic teacher. She easily recognizes each student’s ability and confidence level and reaches out to them in the appropriate manner. I have never learned more than when in her class.

What is my approach? First of all, I listen carefully, very carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to give good advice, guidance and then, of course, a plan, a kind of strategy to follow in order to reach these goals. There will be a permanent interaction between my client and myself to monitor the progress, eventually speed up the tempo or, if necessary, to slow down.
There is no dogma; there is only one main criterion: success.

About Wolfgang

I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring and co-authoring textbooks for the English classroom. During my stay in the US, I had the opportunity to develop curricula for teaching German in public schools as well as private schools and wrote articles in the f

Wolfgang is very thorough and has been very patient with me, making certain I learn proper German pronunciation and grammar. The details of his instruction are far more detail oriented and accurate than community education style classes I have taken previously.
Cindy
Lessons with Wolfgang S. are always a pleasure. He is highly professional, friendly, and tailored all my lessons exactly to fit my needs and interests. He quickly pinpoints any areas that need help, and offers gentle corrections and suggestions to improve. His teaching methods are always interesting, varied, and fun. I learned a lot not only about grammar and vocabulary, but about German culture, and nuances and history of the language that can only be learned from a native speaker with his teaching experience. His explanations to questions are clear and thorough, and he made sure I understood before moving on. He adjusted the pace to my skills and needs without any pressure. I have definitely improved in all areas since taking lessons with him.
Tabatha S.
Wolfgang helped me believe in my confidence to reengage in learning German after 20 years wothout lessons or practice. He is thorough, patient and encouraging. I look forward to future lessons
