I am a native German speaker, born in Vienna, Austria to Nigerian parents. I have lived and worked in Nigeria, West Africa; London, United Kingdom; Waageningen, The Netherlands and currently work for a major United States Airline as a German speaking Flight Attendant. My background and life experiences have given me more exposure than the average person, and I am excited to help other people learn, expand their travel horizons and generally develop a sense of appreciation for different cultures and peoples.

I have known Titilayo for over a year now and she is a phenomenal individual full of life. She is such a great help in many aspects. She is approachable, patient and super generous. As a friend and a student, my German language skills would improve in no time!

Henry is helpful, encouraging and also challenging. He is aware of our abilities. At the beginning we found the course book difficult, but as we continued we grew to enjoy it.

I grew up at the Northern tip of the Black Forest in Southwestern Germany and have spent most of my childhood vacations at my grandparents' in the Eifel region, close to the border with Luxemburg. Therefore, I got to grow up with standard German and two quite distinct dialects of German.

Once I started teaching German to refugees and did an internship in a university German class I started to become aware of the intricacies of German grammar and vocabulary and saw it with new eyes. Frankly, I may not be able to explain ALL grammatical phenomena, but it will be my pleasure to explore and expand my knowledge of German with you.

We can discuss what life in the German-speaking world is like, explore German literature and music, and along the way have a look at the grammar, vocabulary and prosody you may need to talk about those things.

Los geht's! :)

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.

The class was great.

Karin was able to quickly find out what I was interested in learning and we began to immediately to focus on this.

The way the she taught made it easy for me to learn, All in all it was a great first class. I'm looking forward to my next classes.
Monica S.
Karin is a fantastic instructor! Pleasant demeanour and uses a good feedback model. She has made this for me very easy. Saught her out because of her dialect and being a native German speaker and the ability to understand mine dialect. I am glad that I am able to connect with her to improve my reading skills! Highly recommend.

Hello my name is Verena!

I am a German native speaker and currently teaching German at a Language Center in Orlando. I believe in the method of "Learning by doing" which means that I engage my students to actively use the new language, learn in a natural way using real life objects and creating real life situation.

I have a post graduate degree from a German University and worked for several years as a teacher in educational science and was additionally responsible for the supervision of Bachelor and Master Theses in German language.

On these grounds, I am ideally educated to help you with your verbal and written skills in German language. If you just want to be able to have social talks, ask for direction, order food, or if you are interested in intensive language skills - I am here to help you!

"Our time and resources were valued by Chrissy. She was punctual and very quickly assessed our son's strengths and challenges. Her rapport and ability to help our son delve into his own understanding to find the correct answer, rather than providing the correct responses herself, was refreshing; A natural teacher. We are looking forward to the next session.

10 Things I Wish I Knew Before Moving to Germany

Are you moving to Germany for a job, a significant other, or simply a change of scenery? Whatever the reason, moving to Germany—or any foreign country for that matter—is downright terrifying. Not only are you away from your closest friends and family, but you’re living in a country you know little about. Sure you’ve read all the travel books and even learned some German, but nothing can prepare you for the adventure in which you’re about to embark. Lucky for you, we’ve i …
