I'm a German national living in the US. I have experience tutoring children between the ages of 3 and 12 during multiple Internships in Germany and two years of working as a nanny in Virginia. I have also been tutoring adult and college students for the past years. I can provide additional material for German tutoring since I am also helping some of my friends learn the language. I have an extensive collection of German books and teaching materials corresponding to grade levels 2-5, including flash cards and workbooks. I also have a large number of German audio books, mostly fiction, to help with listening skills and pronunciation. Subjects of the audio books include fairy tales, mystery and crime stories, as well as general literature. I also recently added a number of dual-language books to my materials.

Our first meeting was really to set up how we were going to go about tutoring me. The next session we spent a good 30 minutes all in German. Then we read through some materials and magazine articles. It was a great session. Looking forward to my next.
My son was none too anxious to have a tutor. I guess he believed it would be similar to his classroom experience and he wanted none of it. Sophie met with my son and reviewed his homework and results of recent tests. She was able to identify the disconnect between what was being required by the school teacher and his lack of understanding (teacher is exposing the class to too many concepts at once, hence confusion). My son thought the lesson went much better than he anticipated and no longer objects having a German tutor. Both my wife and I were relieved to hear his words of acceptance and willingness to continue his studies with Sophie.
Sophie's a great tutor and as we get more advanced, for example, studying the subjunctive, she's very useful. Her English is very good and she can explain subtle differences in the language.
Just finished up with my last lesson with Sophie before I leave for Berlin. She is a great tutor, very smart, very pleasant to work with and very patient. Highly recommended.
Both my kids (ages 11 and 13) have been taking German with Sophie for the past year and a half. She is punctual, no-nonsense and always ready. They love their lessons which include the usual instructional material and games that they enjoy playing. I would highly recommend Sophie as a German tutor.
Sophie is a creative tutor who, when presented with a challenge (such as a student who is having trouble with conventional learning methods) is very adept at thinking outside the box and finding new and interesting ways to teach. She is a very creative, patient, intelligent teacher and a wonderful person. I can't recommend her enough.
She is doing a great job teaching our son German grammar, incorporating internet and poetry into the lesson and homework. Sophie has always arrived on time and proved to be reliable. She was able to access his written level quickly and has individualized his lessons to fit his needs. We will continue to use Sophie.
Sophie was very patient and understanding. She was able to provide value from the beginning. She showed me reading materials and references to books I could read up on while traveling.
Sophie is the best possible tutor I could ever have had. She is incredible capable and talented. She will take the time to explain everything I need to know and her ability is the only reason I continued with my German class. Her understanding of grammar, which I absolutely hate, has made my progress possible. Thank you so much for the help.
We met to begin the lesson right on time. Sophie is friendly, patient, interesting, and well-versed in various subjects. She deserves 5 stars, except that I was expecting a total immersion lesson in German as I had communicated with her in an email, but I think we ended up speaking more English than German.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
