I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent German tutor and teacher. My father is Swiss-German and my mother's ancestors are mostly German. I knew a bit of German growing up but I took German classes in school from ages 12-18 and ended up with an International Baccalaureate certificate in German. I also love German people and culture so come and learn with me, it would be my honor to teach you!

About Elise H.

Hello! My name is Elise. I was born in Belgium, raised by an American mother and a Swiss father. For twenty years, I have been teaching children to adults of various ages. I have a Master's degree in Intercultural Studies, which makes me an expert at understanding and connecting with people from any cultural background. I am an encouraging, energetic, and culturally sensitive teacher. I work hard to kindly provide consistent corrections to my students. My goal as a teacher is that the students feel confident in the subject matter and feel empowered to continue growing in the skill they wish to attain. Thank you for booking me as your tutor or teacher!

Elise is an encouraging, enthusiastic and real person with a massive heart for the people she teach. Every time I have been around her I have walked away more empowered and inspired to keep moving forward. I can highly recommend her.

Elise is a knowledgeable, professional, ethical, engaged, and helpful tutor. She has been especially helpful in the complexities of learning a new language and made sure I really understood complex grammatical rules and how to apply them. She is also personable, warm, kind, inviting, and really cares about her student's progress.

She was on time, well prepared and engaged in all our meetings. I learned a lot. So far she has been the best German tutor I have had. Cannot recommend Elise enough for language lessons!
