I am a native German teacher who loves watching my students master the German language and become confident speakers. I enjoy showing students the beauty of the language and use fun, real life examples for language and vocabulary attainment. I focus on as full immersion as possible, which I believe is the most natural and easiest way of learning a language. My goal is to meet your specific goals and become confident in communicating in verbal and written high German. Moreover do I love explaining unique and important German cultural ways.
My goal is to meet the individual student's foremost learning goal, be it to communicate in every day life or being able to read and write educational or carrier oriented texts.
I have an undergraduate degree from a German University and am working on my Master's from an American Institution. I have worked both in Germany and the US. Regarding my experience, I have been tutoring students in various subjects since I was a teenager (in Germany). I've been teaching one-on-one as well as in classroom settings at language institutes. I absolutely enjoy teaching and making it fun.
Thank you for considering me. I look forward to meeting you. Bis bald!
Patient, friendly, and knowledgeable German tutor
Nancy is very patient and kind, especially when it comes to helping with pronunciation and grammar. She has been working with me and my husband, and is great at accommodating different learning styles. She has great tips for memory work, and she always has great insights into German culture (she's from Germany, so that's a real plus). I highly recommend Nancy!!!Katie, 3 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
Katie, thank you for your kind review! You and your husband have been such a joy to work with and I look forward to hearing about your future trips to Germany. (:
Great fit for my 14 yo
Nancy did a great job with my teenage daughter. Nancy accommodated to our schedule, and has been very professional. She is so excited to continue her weekly German lessons with Nancy.Anamaria, 4 lessons with Nancy
Great first lesson!
Really looking forward to future lessons. Nancy is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, sympathetic, and supportive. I really think I’m going to make good progress.Carl, 9 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
Thank you for your kind review, Carl. It has been great to watch you putting in so much work into lesson preparations already! I look forward to working with you to reach all your language goals this year.
Excellent and very knowledgeable tutor
Nancy has been instrumental in bridging two months of German school for my son during a business trip. She has not only done a great job ensuring him staying up to speed with the necessary content, she was also able to combine his lessons with field trips and other ways of learning, getting him even further advanced than his classmates after the two months' trip. I highly recommend Nancy for primary school students based on my experience.Andreas, 24 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
Thank you for your great review, Andreas. It has been a joy to work with your son and I miss our memorization games and all the creativity he has in making German come to live!
Patient, kind and very knowledgeable tutor!
I have just had two lessons and Nancy has been a great help so far! She makes learning a new language seem much less daunting than I thought it might be. She is encouraging and patient. She also has great insights on the language and culture that reading a book alone can not provide. I'm looking forward to all that I will learn from her!Jessica, 6 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
Thank you for your kind review, Jessica. It has been so much fun to work with you and you can be proud of the work and amazing creativity you put into preparing for the lessons!
I’ll be honest, I really gave this review a lot of thought...mainly because Nancy has helped me tremendously in just 5 or 6 lessons at a couple hours each lesson. I have been around the German language for about 18 years or so (off and on) and though my reading and reading comprehension I have maintained and I consider to be at a pretty decently high level. Speaking had always been a foreign concept to me (no pun intended). I sought out a tutor who could not only take my speaking to the next level; but could also ensure that it is fun and entertaining...an amazing speaking partner. Nancy’s planning is 100% based around what you as the student want to achieve. She molds and shapes everything to fit you and your list of goals. I have no plans of ending our lessons together anytime soon and am so happy with her that even after we have ended them, whenever that day comes, I hope to still maintain a speaking relationship with her. If you are serious about your German and are looking for a tutor to help you grow or maybe polish your skills, see Nancy. I have had 4 German teachers over the years and none of them come close....okay maybe one of them lol. But truly Nancy has been an amazing help and I look forward to every single session...and when the session is over, I am anxious for the next. Sorry for writing a book but I wanted to do my very best in conveying how helpful she truly is...recommended!Malcolm, 6 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
Malcolm, thank you for you thoughtful response! You can truly be proud of all the hard work and time you put into becoming a truly proficient German language communicator in written AND spoken German. It’s been a joy working with you!
Great German Tutor
Nancy is an amazing German tutor! It's been like my 15th session with her and my German skills have definitely been improving at a good pace. She knows her stuff in terms of correcting your pronunciation and provides help with any questions that you may have. I'd highly recommend taking Nancy.Kevin, 86 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
Kevin, thank you for the great review! You’ve been advancing at such a tremendous speed and can be proud of your continuous hard work and dedication to master the language!
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Nancy is great. She is a patient teacher and a very good communicator. She also adds valuable insight into the German culture. She is very empowering and I have enjoyed working with her.Lj , 6 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
Lj, thank you for the great review! Your work ethic and motivation in learning a new skill are inspiring. I’m glad you feel empowered and enjoyed working with you, too!
We have been meeting with Nancy for a couple months now and she is the greatest! In addition to learning German, she has also taught us cultural behaviors which is so helpful if you are planning a trip to Germany. I would highly recommend her!!Dawn, 12 lessons with NancyTutor responded:
