Would you like to prepare for your next vacation? Do you need to learn German for your new job, or do you just want to improve your skills you've learned in school?

As a native German I can teach you German on a high level! The best way to do that is starting with a simple conversation. Learning through talking, gestures and pictures is the most natural and easy way to be successful in a new language!

As I'm from Hanover I speak the cleanest German with no accent at all! My knowledge of grammar and syntax will help you to learn the 'correct' German!

I’ve worked with Judith for a few years now and she does a great job working with my goals for learning German. She is very patient and flexible with our learning and lessons!
ELSA
Judith is wonderful! All the issues I've had with my voice and singing for years, she addressed with pinpoint accuracy and expert instruction to help me correct them; even the things I didn't know how to explain! She has a great ear and a wealth of practical knowledge to share. After my first month of lessons, my singing is so much better! She is so kind and non-judgmental, and fun to work with, too. With Judith's help and encouragement, I'm hitting notes and singing songs I didn't think I had the range for and turning my good voice into a great voice. Thank you so much, Judith!
Jason
Excellent instruction and great personality! Highly recommend Judith!

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!

This was my first lesson with Verena. I thoroughly enjoyed it, she answered all my questions that I had in the class. She was able to cater to my focus on learning both the grammar and the speaking of German. She is also very great to interact with. She is an awesome teacher! Cannot wait for the next lesson. I would recommend her.

Guten Tag! I completed my master's degree in linguistics at the Free University of Berlin and spent a total of over four years in Germany. Whenever I speak with natives, they tell me that my German is excellent, practically without accent! I would love to help students who are just getting started with German or who are already moving into the conversational level. I also have a lot of great German language learning materials that could be incorporated into the lessons. Ich freue mich darauf mit Ihnen zu arbeiten! (I look forward to working with you!)

Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.
Jordan
Jordan really enjoyed his first lesson. Jonathan validated for him that the daily work he is putting in is helpful and gave him small steps to go forward with.

He enjoyed learning about the culture (including food) and not just the language, as well as learning through games like "20 questions in German." He also appreciated Wolfgang's use of English examples to understand German when necessary. We will miss our time with Wolfgang"
