Jonathan has a demonstrable amount of knowledge about the violin including different playing styles, music theory, and its practical application. His approach is incremental and measured that adapts to my specific strengths and weaknesses intermixed with an appropriate amount of patience. He is also very personable. I always look forward to our lessons together.

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
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!

Karin is truly the best German instructor ever. The most important thing to me is that Karin helps me feel comfortable and confident in at not only reading and understanding German, but also speaking German. I am encouraged and helped at just the right level so I really know that I am learning how to read, write, and speak German in a German speaking country. But there are so many other things as well. The materials she uses are excellent. I get a copy of all the things she types during out on line learning sessions which helps me really learn and remember the German in the lesson. Karin has also sent me other materials such as useful phrases that I could use in situations in another country such as how to order and pay for food in a restaurant, how to tell the clerk what you want when reserving a hotel room, etc. In addition, I can always email Karin if I have a question or concern and Karin responds very quickly. At first, I was concerned that on-line lessons would not be as effective as a classroom lesson face to face. Karin immediately made me feel comfortable learning on line. Now I feel that I am getting more attention and personal one-on-one help more than I would ever get in a classroom. Karin is a really great German teacher.

I love learning German from Karin. As a "nervous language learner" I really appreciate not only Karin's knowledge of German but her patience. Karin inspires me to practice between lessons. The materials we are using is well chosen and and not only helps learning but also provides quick practice on my own. I look forward to my lessons and feel I am making good progress!

What is my approach? First of all, I listen carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to reach the goals of the student. There will be a permanent interaction between my client and myself to monitor the progress, eventually speed up the tempo or, if necessary, to slow down.

There is no dogma; there is only one main criterion: success.

About Wolfgang
I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring and co-authoring textbooks for the English classroom.
During my stay in the US, I had the opportunity to develop curricula for teaching German in public schools as well as private schools and wrote articles in the field of German literature. Undoubtedly, my academic background (MA in German and English and a Ph.D. in the field of education) helps me to provide solid work for my students.

What is my approach? First of all, I listen carefully, very carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to give good advice, guidance and then, of course, a plan, a kind of strategy to follow in order to reach these goals.

Most highly recommended! I found Wolfgang to be an excellent German instructor for me. As a mature (50+) professional I was looking for a native German with perfect mastery of English and impeccable teaching credentials. Wolfgang fit that description perfectly. He tailored the lessons to my needs and made them fun. Along with the excellent language lessons, I really enjoyed his stories about life in Germany, and especially his hometown of Berlin. Thanks to Wolfgang I am much farther along my journey of learning to speak German.

Wolfgang was top notch. He understood and catered to both my learning needs and my chaotic schedule. His knowledge of the German language and its history only exists from a native speaker, and his skill with instruction only comes from decades of experience. Lessons were always informative and fun!

Wie geht's (what's up! How's it going)? If you're looking for a German tutor to help you get through your studies in school, your music as a singer, or as a casual speaker, look no further. We'll practice writing skills, conversation skills, and improve pronunciation (so that your German is "Hoch Deutsch," or what the Germans call "High German" pronunciation).

About Nicole
Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles. She practices what she preaches: one night she might be singing Beyoncé, and the next morning she might be singing Handel's Messiah!

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),

Susanne is awesome! She's working with my three elementary aged boys to maintain their German after having lived in Germany for four years. I think this would normally be a challenge due to their age but not for Susanne. Susanne is very intelligent, easy going and super patient and engaging. She would be a great instructor for all ages and abilities!

About Sami
Love drives some to madness. But you know what love drove me to? German. Following a 6-month relationship with a German exchange student my junior year of high school, learning German became my life calling. I feel slightly guilty to admit my numerous hours spent religiously rehearsing different phrases, song lyrics, and grammar rules. Clearly my idea of fun was a bit skewed for a 16-year old hehe.

Spilling into my college years, my passion drove me to major in the German language and spend nearly 5 months in Germany teaching the youth about human rights and cultural understanding. My last month there, I was confused for a native on multiple occasions, which got me thinking - or dreaming, I should say. The dream that I'm working toward daily is to move to Germany and assist Middle Eastern refugees in assimilation, utilizing my Arabic a
nd German language skills. Step by step & day by day, I'm making my way to the beautiful Deutschland.

I was a co-trainer of Sami in Germany at a conference, no matter if we did sessions in german or english, Sami is awesome in both and has this extraordinary ability to make people comfortable learning something new.

From a co-trainer perspective I can only highlight Sami's competence to explain content and to choose the right method for every learner. And most important: Sami made me learn something new about my own native language German!

I speak fluent German with near-native proficiency. Having spent a significant amount of time living in German-speaking Europe, I am aware of cultural nuances in the language and have gone through the process of mastering German myself. All levels are welcome! Whatever your goals for learning German may be, I will help you achieve them.

About David
Hi! I am a student at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, where I just finished a Bachelor of Music degree in Cello Performance. In the fall I will stay here to begin a Master of Music degree. I am primarily trained in classical music, but have ventured out into different genres and styles and can help you meet your musical goals. I believe a strong foundation and technical ability is important in playing any genre of music, so lessons should normally be formed around cellistic development. I teach all levels and would love to help you explore learning an instrument.

I also teach German. I began learning German as a child, and after several years moved to Germany for a time with my family. There I was enrolled in the school system and learned to speak the language at a near-native level. I strongly believe that
anyone can learn a language, and regardless of what your goals are, I would love to help you in this process!
