My name is Emily and I would love to help you learn to read, write and speak fluent German! I myself am American, but I have lived in Hamburg, Germany and was taught the language by all native speakers. I understand that learning a foreign language can be very difficult, especially if you've never done it before! I am very excited about the possibility of exploring German with you and I know that you will find that learning a language can be fun! I have a very strong work ethic and I believe in the importance of diligence and perseverance, but I also strive to make German accessible to all and an adventure, not a chore.
I've developed a tutoring style that focuses not only on grammar, but largely stress conversation. I've learned languages purely in the classroom and from social experience, and I find it most effective when one is constantly exposed to the language one is trying to learn. Therefore, I incorporate grammatical rules with conversation, and after the first lesson, lessons are conducted primarily in German.
I look forward to hearing from you!
