Private German Teacher

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.

Wie geht's (what's up! How's it going)? If you're looking for a German tutor to help you get through your studies in school, your music as a singer, or as a casual speaker, look no further. We'll practice writing skills, conversation skills, and improve pronunciation (so that your German is "Hoch Deutsch," or what the Germans call "High German" pronunciation).

Online German Teacher

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!

About Edward

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

Susan is a fantastic and committed teacher.
Rachel
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.
Darya and Daniel V.
She is very kind,knowledgeable teacher and she is very good with kids.

"The past five months spent with Henry teaching me my second language has been worthwhile. My decision to choose him as my instructor has paid off exponentially. He immediately immerses you in the language and steadily increases your exposure as you gain proficiency. This is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher, someone to push and challenge me to learn but also there when I was having difficulty.

As someone who has zero experience with the German language he definitely provided the firm foundation I needed to confidently continue my studies alone. I have no doubt when the time comes for more lessons I will revert back to Henry.

Er ist ein sehr guter Lehrer!"
