She is super patient and explains things well. I've learned so much in only 5 or 6 lessons!

Madleine took time to get to know me, assessed my skill level and we started working from there. She was very helpful with vocabulary. She even gave me some hausaufgabe(homework) which was very helpful, too.

Madleine is an outstanding German instructor. I’ve been taking weekly private lessons with her for over a year. Aside from being a native speaker who is also fluent in English, she has a natural knack for languages in general which makes her effective at identifying not just when I make a grammatical or vocabulary mistake, but why. This speeds the learning process. I am thrilled at my progress over the past year, and was delighted that I could follow conversations and comfortably move around Germany when I traveled there last fall. Before the trip we tailored my lessons to include role-play scenarios related to cafés, train stations, hotels, asking directions on the street, etc. Madleine is happy to incorporate contemporary culture into lessons, so that for example we discuss (in German) German Netflix shows like “Dark,” or translate lyrics from German music. As far as course administration, she’s flexible and responsive, which is important to me since I travel a lot for my job and often have to reschedule. I absolutely recommend Maddie as a German instructor!

Madleine is very patient and she explained everything in detail if I had a question. She is even teaching some words that I will hear when i travel to Munich. Can't wait for many more lessons!

Madleine was very accommodating to help me learn what I wanted instead of going by a script.

I feel like I learned a lot more in this one class than I have in many other language classes at school! Madleine makes it so easy to follow along, and really helps you to feel comfortable enough to practice out loud. Danke Madleine!

Maddie ist wunderbar! She was able to create lessons plans geared to my specific needs. Additionally, she was extremely flexible with scheduling, creating fun and engaging lessons, as well as having an enjoyable personality. I no longer have the time to dedicate to weekly classes, but with the tools I've learned, I can certainly continue to practice what I've learned thus far. I highly recommend her. Danke schön!

Madleine is excellent! After only 3 lessons with her, I can truly say that my German has improved tremendously, especially my vocabulary and my speaking skills. I would encourage anyone looking either to learn German for the first time or to improve their current level of German to sign up for German lessons with Madleine.

I always wanted to learn German, when I came across take lessons on the internet, I research the teachers profile and reviews. When I read Madleine review I like the fact that she shows tricks and ideas how to pronounce the German language. I'm Learning German for first time, Madleine was very patient, very knowledgeable. She definitely teaches the right way to pronounce the German language. My lesson with Madleine was great she makes it fun and interesting, I'm really excited to learn the German language. If your learning German for the first time you definitely are going to enjoy learning German with Madleine.

Madleine is an amazing teacher!! She is patient, understanding, and always up beat. She understands the difficulties of learning German, but she has a gift for simplifying the language. She has little tricks to help you pronounce words correctly. She makes learning fun. I was shocked when I went to Berlin last year, and people understood me!! It was a real pleasure learning from her. I highly recommend her!!!!
