Achieve fluency in speaking German: tutor with 10+ years of teaching experience
I grew up in the German part of Switzerland. I was exposed to the language throughout my schooling years. In my professional life as a doctor's assistant and later CEO assistant I needed to communicate daily in the German language. I studied business for 3 years. Over the last 3 years I have taught numerous people German. Some only need a little guidance, others keep on coming back to master more fluent conversation. I'm flexible with my time and willing to adapt to my students' needs.
About Karin N.

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! PS: Cancellations must be notified at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise, students will be charged in full. Group rates vary.

Teacher's Studio

It was a distinct pleasure working with Karin to improve my German language skills. For me, the ability to include Swiss German dialect was a real treat. Karin was the very model of a professional instructor blended with an approachable affable demeanour. Personal health circumstances compel me to curtail my lessons, but I will definitely seek out Karin when I am able to resume my lessons. I recommend Karin without reservation to anyone interested in learning the German language.
