Real stories from real people

Owen G.

19 German lessons

As previously mentioned, I now have an immensely greater understanding of the German language and am better equipped for my future studies in the language. In summary, Justin was able to fill in any of the missing blanks and explain the reasons behind the grammatical rules in the German language. I highly recommend Justin to anyone, of any level, if they want to improve upon any facet of the German language.
Johanna G.

26 German lessons

He is also super knowledgeable when it comes to German culture and history. Our conversations have been fun for me because I get to learn about German artists, German history, the foods in specific German regions, and lately he was even willing to spend an entire lesson answering a thousand questions about how the German parliament works.
C S.

1 German lesson

Marylou was marvelously prepared for the meeting, with German materials of varying subject-matter and difficulty laid out on her table. Marylou immediately began a dialogue in German, a real joy for Ellie who has no one at home or at school with whom she can speak in German. Marylou quickly and expertly assessed Ellie's current level of fluency and then laid out a clear path for Ellie to study German during the upcoming year within the confines of Ellie's schedule.
