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.
PS: Cancellations must be notified at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise, students will be charged in full. Group rates vary.
Responsible for marketing. Dealing with Swiss, German and English clients. Correspondence.
I has worked as an Executive Assistant for 13 months. My responsibilities have included managing the headquarter office in Miami, coordinating schedules for the CEO, attend meetings, write minutes and business correspondence in German and English. I handled social media functions for all major platforms (real world and internet). During my time I also coordinated the logistics tasks. This included finding the appropriate companies and connections.+ Read More

Karin is unbelievably good at carrying personal conversations about what is important to yourself. Enabling me to talk about my live and goals in German was not easy, but forced what I learned in school 35 years ago back to a basic conversation level in a mere 10 lessons.
Ready to hit the road.
Karin is a great tutor. After many months of various tutoring sessions I have been able to successfully write better in German and pass my AP German class. She is recommended for anyone who needs some help with German and has a very flexible schedule. Lastly, she is very patient and willing to translate any and everything, as well as work a little bit after time.+ Read More
very easy to work with!
Karin and I clicked immediately. For an older student like me, she understood my needs for learning.
I studied German in college and have spoken a little in the years since. I decided that I wanted to improve my skills and work with a native German speaker. I’ve been working with Karin for the past few weeks. She’s a fantastic instructor. She understands and can explain clearly the finer points of German grammar and usage. And she has provided great follow-up to any questions I had, and has given useful exercise and other resources to help me improve my German. She has been very encouraging. I feel very comfortable working with her and recommend her highly.+ Read More
Karin is a great tutor honestly. I've so far only had a few lessons with her and my grade has improved so much along with my German! I recommend her for anyone struggling specifically in German.
Karin is a great teacher and very patient. She is able to adapt to your learning style to help you achieve your language goals. Would absolutely recommend her to others.
Karin is an excellent teacher. She has been giving German language lessons to my son, who is truly enjoying Karin's lessons. I am happy to see my son's enthusiasm and progress. Karin is highly recommended.
Great instructor!, I fully recommend her.
Great lesson. Very helpful.
very good teacher, I love her
Karin has been very helpful and encouraging with my German. And also goes the extra mile to help.
Karin is truly the best German instructor ever. The most important thing to me is that Karin helps me feel comfortable and confident in at not only reading and understanding German, but also speaking German. I am encouraged and helped at just the right level so I really know that I am learning how to read, write, and speak German in a German speaking country. But there are so many other things as well. The materials she uses are excellent. I get a copy of all the things she types during out on line learning sessions which helps me really learn and remember the German in the lesson. Karin has also sent me other materials such as useful phrases that I could use in situations in another country such as how to order and pay for food in a restaurant, how to tell the clerk what you want when reserving a hotel room, etc. In addition, I can always email Karin if I have a question or concern and Karin responds very quickly. At first, I was concerned that on-line lessons would not be as effective as a classroom lesson face to face. Karin immediately made me feel comfortable learning on line. Now I feel that I am getting more attention and personal one-on-one help more than I would ever get in a classroom. Karin is a really great German teacher.+ Read More
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!+ Read More
Karin has been great to work with . She has a strong understanding of the German language. She is able to take formal pronunciation and grammar to create simple but effective conversations. I would recommend highly recommend to anyone interested in learning German. I can't wait for my next next visit to Germany to use what I have learned, Thanks.+ Read More
Had my first lesson with Karin and feel inspired to learn more. She is very helpful and patient. I look forward to our next lesson.
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!+ Read More
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! 👍+ Read More

Karin has been truly great to work with, very flexible in terms of approach and really thinks quickly and naturally on her feet! She is enthusiastic about languages and is a born teacher, cannot possibly recommend her highly enough!
Great first lesson!
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.
A great and fantastic start! I am very grateful that I had found Karin as I am fascinated with the culture, language, and people of Switzerland. Moreover, I will be making a first time trip to Switzerland soon and I could not have found a better instructor! Her approach is comforting, patient, and will adjust to your comfort level. Danke Sehr Karin!+ Read More
Awesome teacher, knows her stuff very well and knows how to guide a conversation. Would recommend to anyone. For reference, I am 25 years old and can speak extremely basic german.
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.+ Read More
She is a good teacher, and my kid likes to take classes with her.
She is on time and flexible if for some reason I need to change class hours.

Karin is caring and dedicated and taked her time explaining and she is very aware of my sons abilities and does her best job to bring his best forward
Ms. Karin is a very pleasant lady. I am extremely pleased to have her as an instructor. My daughter was very happy to meet her and enjoyed going over the first lessons and getting to learn German. She made it enjoyable for her to learn and she can't wait to continue on with taking future classes.
Thank you again Ms. Karin
I have taken 3 classes now and I really like it. Karin is a very good teacher and she will send all the text books and other study material. Really good!

Karin is too good. She is well prepared in advance for her lessons and very encouraging.

She is a great instructor😍😍😍
Karin does a great job engaging the student. She provides a wide array of materials and customizes it for the lesson. Lots of conversation but also other, varied approaches to learning and solidifying the material. Highly recommended!
Karin is extremely professional and started working immediately with me on a plan for improving my German. I'm very pleased with the first lesson and looking forward to many more successful lessons.
Karin is great! I spent some time on my own doing a little German. She came on time and prepared for the lesson and did a great job at explaining sentence structures as well as pronunciation. I'm excited for our next lesson!
Karin is extremely patient, particularly when teaching you to speak and think in German. She also challenges you when she sees that you are progressing with each lesson.
I highly recommend Karin for folks at any level.
Karin is very professional and organized and comes to each lesson with printed materials to cover in that lesson. Karin makes learning German fun.

I really enjoy my first German class,Karin was directed it very well,I have the feeling that I already learned the basics but it is a difficult language to learn and with the help of Karin I will be able to do it.
Karin is so so great, good temper and good pronunciation, thanks so much, i really made a good decision to learn from her, i expect to see her next Sunday at the same time!

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.+ Read More

Karin is a great teacher that really tries to do her best for her students.
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.
Karin is wonderful! She is patient and thorough. She customizes the lessons based on your needs and skill set. Thank you!
Karin is a great teacher! She is very patient and detailed. I am excited to continue to learn German with her.
Karin is wonderful teacher to learn with - she preps you well before class with all the learning materials and very engaging during the sessions. I highly recommend Karin!
Very responsive and patient. A goldmine.
