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.

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.

Our daughter took to Kerstin right away. She did not want the lesson to end!
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.

"Erol is a fantastic German teacher! He has worked with my 13 year old daughter for a few months now and I am always impressed by the lessons. He has a system that can playback speech so my daughter can hear her pronunciation and work on her accent. Erol is well organized and does a excellent job changing the curriculum to fit any age."

"Our time and resources were valued by Chrissy. She was punctual and very quickly assessed our son's strengths and challenges. Her rapport and ability to help our son delve into his own understanding to find the correct answer, rather than providing the correct responses herself, was refreshing; A natural teacher. We are looking forward to the next session.
