I am an experienced native speaking German tutor who has been teaching students of all ages and levels. I am a certified Montessori Teacher. I believe in gently guiding, supporting, encouraging but also challenging my students. I love to share many fun facts , i.e. hilarious literal translations, as well as cultural and historical background of Germany. This will give my student a well balanced foundation, he /she will really experience the language, get a “real feel” for it! I customize my curriculum to my students needs, wishes and goals. After a few lessons my students can speak easy sentences and phrases in German already, they will understand even more and will use their newly acquired skills continuously. I strongly stress speaking in my native language to my students from an early point on. It is very important to me to make the language learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience! There shall be lots of laughter! However diligent work and great effort is necessary to be successful. It is a fun adventure! Let’s start! I am excited to meet you & share my native language & country with you!

About Susanna D.

Guten Tag!

I was born and raised in Munich, Germany. I am fluent in German and English. I moved to the United States over 30 years ago with my family. I worked as a chief flight attendant for Lufthansa Airlines for many years. When I became a mother I earned my certification as a Montessori teacher in 2006 and have been teaching my students at a local Montessori school the German language with fun songs (I play the piano) and simple games and interesting books. It is important to me to make the whole learning process a positive and fun experience for my students. I worked with pre-schoolers as well as elementary students. I also tutor high school/college students and adults of any age in German. One of my hobbies and passions is acting on stage, mainly in comedies at local community theaters.
Whatever your needs may be in regard to the German language, (writing, reading, spelling, correct pronunciation, etc. school, work or travel) I would love to be of assistance and make the learning an enjoyable adventure and great success! Living in the United States for so many years and also traveling to Germany every year has made me acutely aware of the cultural differences and I enjoy sharing these interesting findings with my students, it helps immensely to embrace, immerse and "feel" a foreign language.
I am available for online lessons. Please connect with me via Skype communication platform before our lesson starts. I am only working with Skype, this works best for sharing screens and switching between multiple open pages. Thank you! I will gladly send you my Skype name for you to connect with me once we established a lesson time to meet up for our first lesson.
Let's start with this exciting and fun adventure to dive into another culture, another world and language!

Please note: it is always best to check with me before booking on the website. My availability is very variable, I am striving to accommodate the desired lesson times of my many beloved student from all over the world and therefore my calendar changes often. I am working with several different language platforms and my availability shown is meant as a general guideline only. Once you contact me I will be able to inform you of my current availability and I will be able to immediately block your desired time and date on my personal calendar. Then we may book the class online. Thank you!

Susanna is so much fun and is very in tune with my goals for learning German. She explains very clearly how to pronounce some of the unusual sounds we English speakers struggle with! I am looking forward to improving my German with Susanna as my teacher!

Kind, professional, understanding and very experienced and knowledgable. A pleasure to learn from. I just wish that Ms. Dachs was not as busy as she is. However, it's understandable as to why with her knowledge and qualifications.

Susi is very pleasant to work with. She is very patient, and makes learning fun. My pronunciation is much better, thanks to Susi. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning and improving language skills.

Susanna is a wonderful instructor! After just 3 lessons with her, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. Her method of instruction is unique and she knows how to tailor her lessons to the needs of each student. I am so glad that I have chosen Susanna as my German teacher and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to truly master the German language. Vielen Dank Liebe Susi! Du bist eine wunderbare Lehrerin!
