About Veronika

Guten Tag!

I am a native German speaker with over ten years of teaching and tutoring experience.

I have taught German to professionals in a variety of industries – from the research/ scientific/medical field to the economic/ finance industry to the automotive/technology branch – customizing the lessons with a specific goal in mind, whether it is trip preparation, job transfer to a German company or reaching fluency to get ahead in life and work.

I am experienced, professional, patient and highly motivated to help you with your German.

Vocabulary, grammar, speaking skills, fluency, accent reduction, we'll do it all, and it'll even be fun! It is easiest to learn a language by engaging in conversation with a native speaker, and only a native speaker knows the real intonation and sentence patterns, expressions and idioms of a language, so if your goal is to get your pronunciation as close to a native speaker's as possible, then taking lessons with a native German is the way to go.

I supply the textbooks and material, so all you'd have to bring is an interest in learning German. I own textbooks for every level of proficiency - beginner (A1, A2), intermediate (B1, B2) and advanced (C1, C2) and I always tailor and customize each session to my students' age, level of proficiency and knowledge, maximizing progress.

The best way to learn a language is to be taught by a native speaker. If you're interested, feel free to send me a message and you could be on your way towards fluency in German. So leicht ist das!

I would love to hear from you! Or as we say: Ich würde mich freuen von Ihnen zu hören!

Nika

Approved subjects

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.
