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 :).

My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven media-enriched, and comparative introduction for the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as family, travel, outdoor, seasons, and custom themes for an optimal lesson experience.
For example, students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of audio monitoring software during online lessons to help approximate accent issues between different languages. Students obtain a repository of audio files to complement each lesson. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Easy German and Google Earth, turns German into a good choice for a second or additional language.
I grew up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed German credits at the college level. Therefore, ...

Erol is very knowledgeable and has helped me to develop great awareness on how l speak and what to do to reduce my accent. In a month l already noticed some improvement.
Rosa Mac
Very pleased with the course and the instructor. Even though it was a miscommunication at the beginning, we were able to connect with the instructor's information. (Takelessons sends one meeting code, and instructor send another one????). Class was good, instructor very nice, organized and patient (2 hrs time zone difference). Will continue class in the future. I highly recommend Erol.

My daughter had a project which she had to learn German for and sound authentic in a short amount of time. Lisa was flexible and accommodated our scheduled. She went above and beyond to help us! She made teaching charts and provided us detailed notes which helped tremendously! We are so thankful we found her. My daughter is excited to continue learning German and working with Lisa again!

"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 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!!"
