What's the Dative? Where does the verb go? Let me answer all your German Grammar questions
I love all things German and my aim is to encourage my students to feel the same. I've been teaching German for 5 years. My students go from knowing no German to being able to hold conversations to eventually completing their grad studies in a German speaking country! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and before you know it be a German whizz. I try to base my lessons around modern German pop culture typically using current events as inspiration. My lessons feature video links, audio, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I offer different time options to suit your needs and am also happy to discuss group lessons if you wish to learn with your partner/family member/friend. Please reach out to discuss pricing options for those.
About Sam G.

Guten Tag, I'm Sam and use the pronouns she/her. I was born in England but have been living and teaching in the USA since 2014 where I studied for my MA in German Studies at the University of Florida. I began teaching with Takelessons in 2016 and never looked back! Last year I became a USA permanent resident and am working my way to becoming a citizen. I started learning German in school at 11 so, as well as teaching German I also know what it is like to learn it. I firmly believe this background aids my teaching. After school I went on to study German as my major at undergrad level, studying in Düsseldorf plus living and working in Berlin multiple times. Ich liebe (I love) all things Deutsch, would also love to pass that on to you. German can be a tough language to learn but that is what makes it extra rewarding. I consider myself to be an approachable teacher who will always strive to make you feel comfortable in our lessons steer them to cover things that interest you personally. I'm currently located in Asheville, North Carolina, so if you're a local feel free to contact me regarding in-person lessons. Danke!

Sam is a fantastic teacher! I needed someone who had lived in Germany and could share their experiences, someone I could ask any question with that didn't feel stuffy and impersonal. I still have a long way to go, but Sam has undoubtedly made my move to Germany much easier! I've gone from only knowing parts of the alphabet to striking a debate between two locals about whether I am American or German because I said a phrase correctly (but my friends stick out like sore thumbs as Americans, haha)
