Private German Teacher

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!

PS: Cancellations must be notified at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise, students will be charged in full. Group rates vary.

Karin is an amazing instructor. She makes learning German fun. I started with no knowledge of German and she has helped me tremendously in a few lessons. I am heading to a German Immersion camp next week and she has made me feel prepared.

Karin is an amazing instructor. She is patient and very helpful. I am a beginner in German and can already form sentences and understand quite a bit in only my third lesson!

Karin is great! I don't know any other language but English. She teaches at a good pace, always checking to see if I understand, and willing to repeat words and phrases until I am comfortable. She did a great job of teaching the foundation of sentence structures, vowels and consonants, and proper use of casual vs. formal - which helped me jump right into the lesson. And she gives great feedback! I'm excited for my next lesson! Danke Karin!

Private German Teacher

I am a native German and able to teach in every level and in dialects and accents as well.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

About Marcel

I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well.

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!

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!

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo!

I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs.

My method is to provide grammar (very important in French), vocabulary, conversation, reading, and translation in every lesson, and show how important each component is to the whole. I am overjoyed when my students start conversing without need for translation - even if there are errors!

My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance. My mother tongue is English; but I learned French at the age of nine when I attended my first French school. I have a French high s

chool diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree, and I am certified to grade French exams from A1 through C1 (university level). Currently I teach after-school, coordinate a museum visit program (en français) and manage a French exam center.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years, so I am fluent and am now also teaching. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood. I love to learn, even if by adulthood, it is more difficult to become fluent in a new language. I think the fact of being a lifelong learner helps me better understand my students' needs.

As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader. I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.

I am an experienced native speaking German tutor who has been teaching students of all ages and levels. I am a certified Montessori Teacher. I believe in gently guiding, supporting, encouraging but also challenging my students. I love to share many fun facts , i.e. hilarious literal translations, as well as cultural and historical background of Germany. This will give my student a well balanced foundation, he /she will really experience the language, get a “real feel” for it! I customize my curriculum to my students needs, wishes and goals. After a few lessons my students can speak easy sentences and phrases in German already, they will understand even more and will use their newly acquired skills continuously. I strongly stress speaking in my native language to my students from an early point on. It is very important to me to make the language learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience! There shall be lots of laughter! However diligent work and great effort is necessary

About Susanna

Guten Tag!

I was born and raised in Munich, Germany. I am fluent in German and English. I moved to the United States over 30 years ago with my family. I worked as a chief flight attendant for Lufthansa Airlines for many years. When I became a mother I earned my certification as a Montessori teacher in 2006 and have been teaching my students at a local Montessori school the German language with fun songs (I play the piano) and simple games and interesting books. It is important to me to make the whole learning process a positive and fun experience for my students. I worked with pre-schoolers as well as elementary students. I also tutor high school/college students and adults of any age in German. One of my hobbies and passions is acting on stage, mainly in comedies at local community theaters.
Whatever your needs may be i

n regard to the German language, (writing, reading, spelling, correct pronunciation, etc. school, work or travel) I would love to be of assistance and make the learning an enjoyable adventure and great success! Living in the United States for so many years and also traveling to Germany every year has made me acutely aware of the cultural differences and I enjoy sharing these interesting findings with my students, it helps immensely to embrace, immerse and "feel" a foreign language.
I can meet my students in person or if more convenient be available for online lessons.
Let's start with this exciting and fun adventure to dive into another culture, another world and language!

Please note: it is always best to check with me before booking on the website. My availability is very variable, I am striving to accommodate the desired lesson times of my many beloved student from all over the world and therefore my calendar changes often. Once you contact me I will be able to inform you of my current availability and I will immediately block your desired time and date on my personal calendar. Thank you!

I have not been disappointed- he pays careful attention to cultivating accent, which is important and the best part of having a native speaker for a teacher."
