Online German Teacher

I am an experienced native speaking German tutor who has been teaching students of all ages and levels. I am a certified Montessori Teacher. I believe in gently guiding, supporting, encouraging but also challenging my students. I love to share many fun facts , i.e. hilarious literal translations, as well as cultural and historical background of Germany. This will give my student a well balanced foundation, he /she will really experience the language, get a “real feel” for it! I customize my curriculum to my students needs, wishes and goals. After a few lessons my students can speak easy sentences and phrases in German already, they will understand even more and will use their newly acquired skills continuously. I strongly stress speaking in my native language to my students from an early point on. It is very important to me to make the language learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience! There shall be lots of laughter! However diligent work and great effort is necessary

Susi is very pleasant to work with. She is very patient, and makes learning fun. My pronunciation is much better, thanks to Susi. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning and improving language skills.

Susanna is a wonderful instructor! After just 3 lessons with her, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. Her method of instruction is unique and she knows how to tailor her lessons to the needs of each student. I am so glad that I have chosen Susanna as my German teacher and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to truly master the German language. Vielen Dank Liebe Susi! Du bist eine wunderbare Lehrerin!

Guten Tag! I completed my master's degree in linguistics at the Free University of Berlin and spent a total of over four years in Germany. Whenever I speak with natives, they tell me that my German is excellent, practically without accent! I would love to help students who are just getting started with German or who are already moving into the conversational level. I also have a lot of great German language learning materials that could be incorporated into the lessons. Ich freue mich darauf mit Ihnen zu arbeiten! (I look forward to working with you!)

Bgcheck Background Checked


Online German Teacher

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.

About Karin

Guten Tag, My name is Karin. I was born and raised in Switzerland. However, Miami is my home now. I love the unique melting pot of Miami. No wonder so many German speaking tourists, investors and patrons are visiting here. Over more than ten years I have taught numerous people the German langu

Karin is an amazing instructor. She makes learning German fun. I started with no knowledge of German and she has helped me tremendously in a few lessons. I am heading to a German Immersion camp next week and she has made me feel prepared.

Karin is an amazing instructor. She is patient and very helpful. I am a beginner in German and can already form sentences and understand quite a bit in only my third lesson!

Laura
Karin is great! I don't know any other language but English. She teaches at a good pace, always checking to see if I understand, and willing to repeat words and phrases until I am comfortable. She did a great job of teaching the foundation of sentence structures, vowels and consonants, and proper use of casual vs. formal - which helped me jump right into the lesson. And she gives great feedback! I'm excited for my next lesson! Danke Karin!

I have experience with languages and grammar, and I know that everyone learn in a different way, for some people is easier than for others. My challenge is to find what is easier for you.

About Isabel

I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different
