You will have fun learning German with me, from the beginner to the advanced levels. I have taught German at high schools, universities and in one-on-one private settings. I am confident that after a few tutorial sessions with me you will secure a better understanding of this important language. If you speak and understand German at the intermediate level, I will leverage my knowledge of German history, politics and current events during our private conversational sessions. Grammar is also my specialty and I can simplify grammatical rules so that they are easy to learn.

I have traveled to over 80 countries and have interacted with many different foreign cultures at all levels of society. I know how to connect meaningfully with foreign nationals even if their English language skills are limited. I have the patience, skills mix and background to teach conversational and written English to anyone who is motivated to learn. English is the world's most important language and definitely worth learning properly.
