Would you like to prepare for your next vacation? Do you need to learn German for your new job, or do you just want to improve your skills you've learned in school?

As a native German I can teach you German on a high level! The best way to do that is starting with a simple conversation. Learning through talking, gestures and pictures is the most natural and easy way to be successful in a new language!

As I'm from Hanover I speak the cleanest German with no accent at all! My knowledge of grammar and syntax will help you to learn the 'correct' German!

I’ve worked with Judith for a few years now and she does a great job working with my goals for learning German. She is very patient and flexible with our learning and lessons!
ELSA
Judith is wonderful! All the issues I've had with my voice and singing for years, she addressed with pinpoint accuracy and expert instruction to help me correct them; even the things I didn't know how to explain! She has a great ear and a wealth of practical knowledge to share. After my first month of lessons, my singing is so much better! She is so kind and non-judgmental, and fun to work with, too. With Judith's help and encouragement, I'm hitting notes and singing songs I didn't think I had the range for and turning my good voice into a great voice. Thank you so much, Judith!
Jason
Excellent instruction and great personality! Highly recommend Judith!

I will be creating my lessons by mixing what I learn through duolingo with my personality, likes, dislikes, everyday issues... etc etc etc.

About Shelby

I am laidback. You and I will create an agreement that fits both of us once we start (long-term students) and a set of boundaries to keep up focused on your goals for the session(s). I prefer us to keep the subject of conversation geared towards your learning goals that day, but I wont freak out eve

Hi there!
My name is Cassandra. My journey as a German speaker started off simple.
I'm a native English speaker and I took German in college without knowing a lick of German beforehand.
I later studied abroad in Vienna, Austria, and fell in love with the place - so much so that I moved there the next year in 2016 after I became A1 certified in the German language.

While residing there, I taught piano privately to children who only knew German, as well as taught English to a family who only spoke German and French.

I went further and took a language exam from the ÖSD in Vienna and became a certified B2 speaker in the German language.

I believe languages are a wonderful thing - they help us understand one another and expand our minds - helping us to grasp concepts which may not exist in another language.

I am here to help you become the best German speaker you can be :).

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!)

German started in my extended family and has gradually become a central part of my life. First I studied German for five years in grammar school. Then I traveled to Germany multiple times, and hosted Couschsurfers from Germany and Austria. My nephews are being raised bilingual in English and German, and I have both native and second language German speakers in my nuclear and extended family. Having this broad perspective on how German fits in the landscape of international communication, I can adapt a students' education to fit their needs whether it be in mastering school skills or learning German for travel, work or to build relationships.

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

Mr. Jonathan was absolutely fantastic with my son. He was patient, supportive and always so positive. He worked hard to connect with my son and figure out ways that would make the learning fun.

The first class was very good. We covered a good amount of ground. There's only so much an instructor can do during a first class as the teacher and student get to know each other, however, so I'm looking forward to future classes to get deeper into the lessons
