Private German Teacher

German started in my extended family and has gradually become a central part of my life. First I studied German for five years in grammar school. Then I traveled to Germany multiple times, and hosted Couschsurfers from Germany and Austria. My nephews are being raised bilingual in English and German, and I have both native and second language German speakers in my nuclear and extended family. Having this broad perspective on how German fits in the landscape of international communication, I can adapt a students' education to fit their needs whether it be in mastering school skills or learning German for travel, work or to build relationships.

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer.

Very comfortable, laid back and unintimidating interaction. If you are thinking about playing sitar I strongly recommend you make arrangements to have at least the first lesson in person if possible. He is a very experienced professional and willing to adapt to your individual needs.

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!

My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven media-enriched, and comparative introduction for the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as family, travel, outdoor, seasons, and custom themes for an optimal lesson experience.
For example, students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of audio monitoring software during online lessons to help approximate accent issues between different languages. Students obtain a repository of audio files to complement each lesson. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Easy German and Google Earth, turns German into a good choice for a second or additional language.
I grew up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed German credits at the college level. Therefore, ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda H.
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

I feel that I am making progress, and Erol is making sure that I don't feel intimidated. I highly recommend him if someone is looking for German language classes."

"The past five months spent with Henry teaching me my second language has been worthwhile. My decision to choose him as my instructor has paid off exponentially. He immediately immerses you in the language and steadily increases your exposure as you gain proficiency. This is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher, someone to push and challenge me to learn but also there when I was having difficulty.

As someone who has zero experience with the German language he definitely provided the firm foundation I needed to confidently continue my studies alone. I have no doubt when the time comes for more lessons I will revert back to Henry.

Er ist ein sehr guter Lehrer!"
