SERVUS! My name is Doris, and I would love to share my passion for the German language and culture with you! Whatever level you are at, for whatever reason you want to learn German, I can help! As an experienced instructor at all levels, I tailor my lessons to best suit each individual (or group), taking into account prior knowledge, learning styles, learning goals, and available time frames.
Born and raised in Austria, I'm a native German speaker, who moved to the USA three years ago. I lived in Chicago for 1.5 years before moving to Santa Clara. My excitement for the German language led me to pursue a master's degree in publishing at the University in Vienna, followed by a decade long career as TV journalist. Finally, here in the USA I'm able to follow my second passion, teaching!
My experience includes:
- Relocation language training for individuals and families prior to moving to Germany, Austria or Switzerland
- Corporate language training for German and American companies with employees who need to learn German (mid to senior-level executives, sales and marketing personnel)
- Pre-trip language training for individuals prior to traveling to Germany, Austria or Switzerland
- Spouses, partners and significant others of German speakers who need to learn German for family purposes
I truly love helping students succeed and reach their highest potential. I can guarantee you that as long as your goal is realistic, with me you will be able to realize it!

Tennis is my passion: I literally grew up at the tennis court and played tournaments and championships until the age of 20, before I got busy with university and work. Currently I'm a self rated USTA 4.5 player, playing for the Santa Clara Tennis & Golf Club and the Cliff Drysdale in Visalia. My second passion is teaching. Watching a student make progress is deeply rewarding. My teaching experience includes:
Tennis Instructor (1996-2000)- private lessons for adults and kids (at the age of 5 to 15) at ATUS Tennis Club in Knittelfeld, Austria. (I already registered for the PTR 11 To 17 Certification Workshop in Fremont on August 2/3 - so soon I will be certified)
Patient, understanding, and responsive — Doris understands how uneasy a person can be about learning something new. She is patient and if something is not working, she is creative in coming up with alternative ideas to learn. I hired Doris to give me some basic German lessons before I travel to Germany with my partner. I have very much enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend her to anyone considering a tutor.
