I worked with Tatiana for several weeks in order to brush up on my german which I once knew quite well. Tatiana was a great help by assessing where I was and immediately putting together lessons that were perfect for me. I highly recommend her as a german teacher at any level.

Private German Teacher

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 has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda H.
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Pamela W.
Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.
Joshua
She was absolutely patient and was able to work with and engage my son who has a learning disability. She did a great job making him feel comfortable and after only one session I could see his confidence go up as he continued to draw into the evening. She really enjoys what she does and it shows in the way she worked with my son.

Online 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.

I teach (and have learned languages) through a non-traditional approach, which emphasizes immersion, reading, and developing a love for the culture of the language. I will not make students sit down with grammar tables and conjugations, but rather will teach in a conversational approach

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.

"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."

"Most highly recommended! I found Wolfgang to be an excellent German instructor for me. As a mature (50+) professional I was looking for a native German with perfect mastery of English and impeccable teaching credentials. Wolfgang fit that description perfectly. He tailored the lessons to my needs and made them fun. Along with the excellent language lessons, I really enjoyed his stories about life in Germany, and especially his hometown of Berlin. Thanks to Wolfgang I am much farther along my journey of learning to speak German."

Students learning German are often relieved to hear that they already have a "head start" from the many recognizable German words that share the same English meaning, also known as cognates. Cognates are a great for learning German, as students have already developed mental associations with words and …
