I have been working with Renate to get ready for the TOEFL exam. Renata is an excellent tutor with comprehensive knowledge and great teaching practices. She provided me with techniques specific for TOEFL based on deep knowledge of this test structure and requirements, which prepared me to the test and allowed me to succeed. She is pleasant to work with and was flexible to accommodate my needs prior to the test. Well recommended!
My child and I were engaged with Renate during the summer and we are very glad we chose Renate. The classes were not only useful for us, but also very interesting! She is very good with children, my son fell in love with her classes! My English has improved, very sorry that I can not find the same professional teachers of English in Russia! I would like to say thank you, Renate!
I had a pleasure to study with Renate for a few month. Her style of teaching is very effective. She shared professionally-made study materials with me during our classes that helped me learn better. I also had a chance to go over the materials at home, improving my skills even further. Renate is patient and thorough. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional with great ability to teach.
It was our pleasure to meet Renate. We could afford only few lessons of Renate with our 8 yo daughter and the results exceeded our expectations. The plan was to give our kid a push before the Arts and Sculpture program for native speakers. Within only a week our kid have learned the required minimum of professional arts terms and got a fluent knowledge of how to apply these words. Renate is bi-lingual, she knows 4 languages in total. The multi-language thinking, imho, helps Renate to deliver the information in a very digestible form even to a beginner. Plus the teaching style and patience.
I enjoyed our lessons. I got what I expected. I believe I have improved my speaking and reading as far as it is possible during these 8 meetings. I also appreciate that I not only have gotten new vocabulary and grammar knowledge, I also had very interesting debates with Renate, she is very good interlocutor as well as she is a good tutor.
I like Renate's way of teaching German. She is very patience and always keen to understand students goal and help them achieving the goal. When I first contacted Renate about learning German, she wanted to understand my level of German and the reason for learning it. Then she suggested me a road map to achieve my goal. Its great. Thanks Renate for helping me so far.
I was in pretty urgent need of test prep for the TestDAF, which is the German equivalent of the TOEFL. I'm very happy I decided to spend the money for a tutor, because Renate was able to research the test and print and bring test materials at a time when my access to the Internet and computers was very limited. She introduced me to the basic structure of the test and explained how it was evaluated. On my own, I would not have been able to understand the expectations of the exam. For example, I had very naive views on how to go about writing and structuring the essay for the written portion of the test. She reviewed one of my essay responses, and she demanded that I simplify. We practiced some writing together, which was very helpful. Renate also provided me with lists of transitional phrases and terminology for explaining data and trends, both of which came in very handy on the written and speaking portions of the test. As far as preparing for the speaking part, I felt that every minute spent with Renate was valuable because we spoke only in German (well, as often as possible - perhaps we should have been more strict on ourselves). She was always happy to correct me (she even printed out and edited our email correspondence to point out the mistakes that I tend to make, which I really appreciated). Additionally, she urged me to practice for the speaking part of the test by recording myself, and on her own time she reviewed and corrected my responses. What most people don’t understand when they pay for a tutor or when they talk about teachers is that there is a lot of work to be done outside the classroom; Renate was always prepared with corrections, with extra reading material, with practice sheets - we were never bored, and I am in awe of her professionalism and effort.
