Guten Tag,
My name is Karin. I was born and raised in Switzerland. However, Miami is my home now. I love the unique melting pot of Miami. No wonder so many German speaking tourists, investors and patrons are visiting here.

Over more than ten years I have taught numerous people the German language. Some of them only need a little guidance to have a more pleasant traveling experience to Germany. Others keep on coming back to master fluent conversation and writing skills. I'm passionate about tutoring. My goal is to provide an atmosphere that will facilitate an ongoing level of improvement in my students' speaking, writing proficiency. You'll see this by the way I teach. I am flexible with my time and adapt easily to my students' needs. As a first step I get familiar with your expectations. Secondly I recommend an approach that fits you. Thirdly I want you to have fun and learn in an interactive way.

Bis bald!

I love learning German from Karin. As a "nervous language learner" I really appreciate not only Karin's knowledge of German but her patience. Karin inspires me to practice between lessons. The materials we are using is well chosen and and not only helps learning but also provides quick practice on my own. I look forward to my lessons and feel I am making good progress!

Karin teaches all three of my children, and they love working with her! Each child is at a different level in German, and she crafts her lessons to each child, building language skills and confidence each time. Not only does she send prepared lesson plans for review before each session, but also she is punctual, patient, and friendly. It's a delight for me to hear the kids speaking German with such a lovely teacher!

My lesson with Karin was fantastic. I have learned a smattering of german years ago. I remember very little and still get very nervous when trying to speak German. Karin is great!! Karin made me feel comfortable from the very beginning of the lesson. She was understanding and patient with my being nervous. She is fluent in both high German and Swiss German which is perfect for me as I want to be able to speak to extended family in Switzerland! With excellent teaching and encouragement during the course of the 45 minutes I felt comfortable & that I had made progress even in such a shot time. I look forward to my next lesson with Karin. She is a terrific German teacher! 👍

I have had only my first lesson with Karin and I am very exited for the next sessions; Right away she identifies the perfect level of German language for your specific needs and individualize the way she proceeds with the lesson.
She is friendly, knowledgable and easy to feel confortable with.
I just got engaged with my girlfriend (German), and I feel confident that this would be a great step for me to keep improving my german with her.
I definitely recommend Karin.

I am a High School Student who is currently in German 1. I have had classes with Karin for about two months now. She is a good teacher who helps you out with anything you are having problems with. This varies from preparation for exams to just problems you have in general, for example pronunciation. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn German.

I have tried several times in the past to learn the German Language and felt very frustrated with myself. Karin has given me the confidence and tools to not only learn the language but too also have fun while learning. I absolutely love her and have decided to go from 3 hours a week to 5 & 6. The best investment I could have ever made. Thank you, Karin.

Karin is amazing. I only had one class so far, but my experience is nothing but the best. First, when I decided to go with her as a tutor, she responded to my e-mails right away, even though she was in Switzerland at the time. Then, she helped me figure out if it's the best to do online classes. And, before every class she send me material that we'll be doing at class, so I can get ready.

So grateful that I found such great German tutor. Looking forward to the next class.
