What is my approach? First of all, I listen carefully, very carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to give good advice, guidance and then, of course, a plan, a kind of strategy to follow in order to reach these goals. There will be a permanent interaction between my client and myself to monitor the progress, eventually speed up the tempo or, if necessary, to slow down.
There is no dogma; there is only one main criterion: success.

About Wolfgang

I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring and co-authoring textbooks for the English classroom. During my stay in the US, I had the opportunity to develop curricula for teaching German in public schools as well as private schools and wrote articles in the f

Wolfgang is very thorough and has been very patient with me, making certain I learn proper German pronunciation and grammar. The details of his instruction are far more detail oriented and accurate than community education style classes I have taken previously.
Cindy
Lessons with Wolfgang S. are always a pleasure. He is highly professional, friendly, and tailored all my lessons exactly to fit my needs and interests. He quickly pinpoints any areas that need help, and offers gentle corrections and suggestions to improve. His teaching methods are always interesting, varied, and fun. I learned a lot not only about grammar and vocabulary, but about German culture, and nuances and history of the language that can only be learned from a native speaker with his teaching experience. His explanations to questions are clear and thorough, and he made sure I understood before moving on. He adjusted the pace to my skills and needs without any pressure. I have definitely improved in all areas since taking lessons with him.

Wolfgang helped me believe in my confidence to reengage in learning German after 20 years wothout lessons or practice. He is thorough, patient and encouraging. I look forward to future lessons

I am born and raised in Germany and speak the language fluently.
Furthermore, I moved to the US 3 Years ago and I know the struggle with a new language very well therefore I am very respectful and insightful with my students.

Since I moved to the US I have an American girlfriend who is now able to talk german in a proper way only trough me teaching her. After being with me for that time she gained a lot of confidence and considers herself bilingual.

Let's learn together!

My husband, our two adult sons, and I came from Germany to California.
I am a native speaker of German.

In Germany, I studied to become a teacher of mathematics and physics and worked many years as a teacher in several schools and grades.
Therefore, I have a lot of experience in teaching from the age of kindergarten up to high school.

With me as your teacher, you will have the chance to learn excellent German without an accent and with very good grammar.
I can teach you speaking, writing and giving answers in full sentences.
Mostly, I am really creative in my lessons, and my students can learn a lot and have fun at the same time.

But… I am still working on my English. :-)
I am looking forward to speaking German with you.

I've greatly enjoyed my lessons with Jessi so far. She's been adaptable and receptive towards feedback, and approaches each lesson with enthusiasm. As a native speaker, her French is excellent and she's a great tutor to have. Highly recommend.

I am native German and teach happy and successful students for a long time.

I can't really talk too much about how other teachers work, and also don't want to. But I know I have and always had many happy and successful students. From kids, adults, professionals, hobbyists to people who retired and finally have time to fulfill a life goal.

I have quite a few students who have German in school and it is a pleasure to see how they improve since there is mostly not really the time at all to go over details in school and my experience is that most students who don't have native parents, need simply help in order to succeed and get good grades.

About Mac

Hello Students, Parents, Grandparents and all the other happy people. :) Just send me a message if you are interested in taking lessons and we go from there and figure out what goals you have and how we can take it from there. I teach kids (my youngest was 4 years old when we started), adults, pr

Marcel is an extremely capable German tutor. He has an extensive understanding of German and will out of his way to help you learn.
Friederike
I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)

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!
