About Chrissy

Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience. During her Music studies in the Netherlands she was offered an internship at the local Music School which she gratefully accepted and where she enjoyed her first voice coaching experience. There she was also nominated as one of the most promising young singer/songwriters at the LUX Festival in Nijmegen. Over the years she was blessed with more and more private students in voice as well as piano. During her stay in New York she received the opportunity to work with a Broadway show ensemble ("Dreamgirls") as a Music Director on their different harmonic parts. She's proudly b

een a member of the Music of Oz Studio staff in Crown Point, Indiana since Jan. 2011 and is looking forward to teaching out of her home now as well. Chrissy is crazy about all her students and wants them to succeed! She's very much looking forward to working with you and having buckets of fun! :-)

Private German Teacher

I received my B.A. in German Studies, have completed language training at the Humboldt University of Berlin, and have lived in Germany off-an on for periods of up to three months! Would love to have prepare you for an upcoming trip, have informal conversation in German, tutor you for an upcoming exam, or teach the grammatical basics!

About Abigail

A passionate educator and Suzuki trained teacher, I teach individual and group classes with Suzuki Strings of Austin, violin and viola students at Bedichek Middle School, and run a private violin and viola home studio in Austin and online.

In violin lessons with me, you can expect the focus to go far beyond the technical aspects of the violin, encouraging each student to flourish and reach their full potential. I believe that every student has the ability, drive, and capacity to succeed at, love, and learn from the violin. Whether you're an adult new to the instrument, a young child trying out music lessons for the first time, or an older student returning to the instrument after a few years off, violin lessons will serve as a meaningful musical outlet, a way to discover self-directed learning, and a way to engage with an entire commun

ity of musicians.

Abigail was an enthusiastic teacher who helped spread her love of the violin. She is classically trained and works on the fundamental skills a young violinist needs. Our child enjoyed her sense of humor as well.

Bgcheck Background Checked


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. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn how to open up and knuckle down at the same time!

I am currently a full-time YouTube Creator, sidelining in cover bands and a solo act. Teaching is a big part of what I do online so I see my work as a private teacher as 'research' for the lessons I create. Although I'm firmly grounded in a classical music training, there's nothing you can ask about that I won't try to figure out. My favorite thing about teaching is using unexpected questions to develop new ideas that I then integrate into my original compositions. Check out my intro to the B

lues Raga video if you want to hear a good story about what I mean.

Recently I've had several articles published by the TakeLessons Blog. Check out my most recent post here.

Private German Teacher

I am a professional teacher of German and I have many years of experience teaching German to different ages and levels. I taught at the university in Moscow.
If you are looking for a fun, flexible, easy to get along with tutor for either German or Russian I am perfect for you. I have been travelling to Germany, Austria, Switzerland for fun and as an interpreter. I have Goethe-Institute certificate which proves my qualifications. German is my biggest passion ever!

About Tatiana

I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci

al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Private German Teacher

I love all things German and my aim is to encourage my students to feel the same. I've been teaching German for 3 years. My students go from knowing no German to being able to hold conversations to eventually completing their grad studies in a German speaking country!

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and before you know it be a German whizz. I try to base my lessons around modern German pop culture typically using current events as inspiration. My lessons feature video links, audio, worksheets, textbooks, and more.

About Sam

Guten Tag,

I'm Sam! I was born in England but have been living and teaching in the USA since 2014 where I studied for my MA in German Studies at the University of Florida. This year I became a USA permanent resident and am working my way to becoming a citizen.

I started learning German in school at 11 so, as well as teaching German I also know what it is like to learn it. I firmly believe this background aids my teaching.

After school I went on to study German as my major at undergrad level, studying in Düsseldorf plus living and working in Berlin multiple times. Ich liebe (I love) all things Deutsch, would also love to pass that on to you.

German can be a tough language to learn but that is what makes it extra rewarding. I consider myself to be an approachable teacher who will always strive to make you feel comfortable in

our lessons steer them to cover things that interest you personally.

I'm currently located in Asheville, North Carolina, so if you're a local feel free to contact me regarding in-person lessons.

*** Before signing up for lessons with me I encourage you to check my availability calendar/contact me to make sure I have a time slot that will work for you. I have a large number of students currently and very limited space in the evenings.

Danke!

If I could give a 10 star rating, I would award that to Sam. She is an exceptionally outstanding tutor. She took the time to make sure that we were agreed on my goals and preferences for the upcoming sessions. Sam adeptly and promptly put me at ease whenever I was having difficulty with any aspect of the course. As I refined my objectives for the remaining sessions, she seamlessly adapted the sessions accordingly. In the time that I had before my trip to Germany, I feel very confident that I can handle the situations that I most likely will encounter, such as traveling by bus, train or air; dining; getting directions; and understanding native speakers. Here's my final remark: if you are looking for a tutor who will understand and work with you to achieve your goals for learning to understand and speak German, choose Sam!

Private German Teacher

I first started learning German due to a serendipitous move to Oklahoma following my junior year of high school. I have since really grown to love the German language and ended up getting a BA in German Studies (jointly with a BA in Spanish). I really love German literature, whether it's Goethe or Michael Ende, and I really enjoy Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Händel, and also Lieder (Shubert's "Erlkönig" being my favorite). I am also a huge fan of Die Prinzen. I consider myself an expert in grammar-related topics (including verb conjugation, cases, Konjunktiv I and II, etc.) but am also willing to teach vocabulary, pronunciation, and other topics.

About Paul

I hail from Walla Walla, Washington, home of the "famous" sweet onions. I can't begin to express how much I love languages!! I have studied 8 so far (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Dutch) and I teach 5 (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese), and want to keep learning new languages throughout the rest of my life. I love to work with students so that's why I've kept my rates low--to make sure more people can have the opportunity to learn these languages. I have a down-to-earth style and I allow my students to guide their own learning in a student-structured, individualized way. As of June 2019, I have taught multiple students different languages, among whom are three students I have been teaching between 7 and 9 months, who have all improved considerably and continue to progress steadily

. I am positive I can help you come to understand the wonderful world that is language and to learn how amazing it is to be able to say the same thing in so many different ways, and how much better it is to be able to communicate with someone in his/her native language instead of having to resort to English. Let's do this!!

Note: I have not had any connectivity problems for quite a while now so be assured that I can provide quality instruction with no issues.

I have experience with languages and grammar, and I know that everyone learn in a different way, for some people is easier than for others. My challenge is to find what is easier for you.

About Isabel

I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.
