Elisa is a great violin teacher. She is patient and fun, yet challenges our daughter which helps her advance quickly. She is very skilled at setting developmentally appropriate goals and my 9 year old daughter loves her!

Elisa is a great violin teacher for my 8 year old daughter. She is clear with her expectations and sets attainable challenges while making lessons enjoyable. My daughter has learned faster than I expected and looks forward to every lesson. I highly recommend her for teaching young children.

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!
