Hello my name is Verena!

I am a German native speaker and currently teaching German at a language center in Orlando. I believe in the method of "Learning by doing" which means that I engage my students to actively use the new language, learn in a natural way using real life objects and creating real life situation.

I have a post graduate degree from a German University and worked for several years as a teacher in educational science and was additionally responsible for the supervision of Bachelor and Master Theses in German language.

On these grounds, I am ideally educated to help you with your verbal and written skills in German language. If you just want to be able to have social talks, ask for direction, order food, or if you are interested in intensive language skills - I am here to help you!

I really enjoyed my lessons with Verena. She is kind and its easy to follow her lessons. She supported me a lot in my language skills. I recommend her to others who like to work on their German and I especially liked that she is a Native Speaker with a very clear German without any regional accent.

Verena was great! I really enjoyed my lessons with her. I thought it was going to be really difficult to pick up the language but she made it easy and fun! I’m traveling to Germany for work a lot and wanted to improve my basic conversational skills. I’ve already put my new skills to work with my German collogues over the phone. Not only was I able to understand a lot more of what they were saying but I could actually respond in full sentences. And I’m using my translation app much less now. One of my German collogues actually complemented me on my German pronunciation ! The German lessons were well worth the investment.
