Would you like for your child to learn German during this time and don't know where to start? I offer private 1:1 instruction as well as special offers for small-group (2+ students) German lessons. Contact me for more details.

I am a German native familiar with various languages and cultures, and I understand the difficulties you face when learning another language. I have lived in three different countries for extended periods and have taught countless students from all over the world. I have been living in the U.S. for almost twenty years, and I am currently teaching all classes online (I would usually also be willing to teach at a mutually acceptable location upon special request). My students' ages range from 8-82 years.

After completing my formal education as an interpreter/translator in Munich, Germany, I moved to Austria and worked for the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency headquartered in Vienna, Austria. In 1999, I married an American citizen and have since been living in the United States. I have worked in both international and local government as well as the corporate world and have many years of experience as a private German and English (ESL/EFL) tutor. I would love to help you with your German or English language studies and find great satisfaction in improving your ability to express yourself in a foreign language.

Though I try to be flexible with my time whenever possible, I do have a minimum of a 24- hour cancellation policy. Ask about special rates for 1.5-hour lessons!

I look forward to helping you achieve your language learning goals. Please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange a lesson. Upon request, I am also available for a free consultation meeting in advance to the lesson.

Thrilled to work with Ursula!

We have been thrilled to have Ursula Tutoring our 9th grade for his German 2 class. Ursula reviews his online school syllabus to match her lessons to the class concepts and she did an thorough review of our district’s German 1 syllabus concepts to ensure his fundamentals were solid. Her German/ English translation expertise and ability to build rapport with kids makes her outstanding to work with. Highly recommend!

Kyle, 14 lessons with Ursula

great tutor - makes online school much easier!

Ursula has been a fantastic resource to our group of three 8th grade German 1 students! She works directly with the kids’ online school curriculum to augment the online lessons with small group instruction. Our three families are thrilled with how well this has worked out and it’s all thanks to Ursula!

I highly recommend Ursula G as an instructor

Ursula is a great teacher. She had a clear directed plan for instruction and was supportive and flexible in our online meetings. I have learned a great deal in each lesson with Ursula’s guided instruction.

Alice, 6 lessons with Ursula

Outstanding tutor!

We are so thrilled to have found Wyzant and Ursula. She is tutoring my 11-year old son in German and we could not be happier. Ursula was quickly able to assess his progress from DuoLingo and start assigning him appropriate work. She also helped us establish a schedule so his lessons would occur at optimal intervals. She is extremely knowledgeable and well-organized, but also very warm and friendly. He looks forward to every lesson and is working hard on homework and practice. We give Ursula our highest possible recommendation, and hope our son can work with her for a long time to come.

Teresa, 261 lessons with Ursula

knowledgeable and excellent tutor

I have German lessons with Ursula. In the first lesson, we gladly got to know each other. she tried to test my language level in order to make a right study plan for me. She is very much experienced in teaching. I had a lot of fun with her.

Lixia, 3 lessons with Ursula

Friendly and detailed

I was hesitant to get a tutor because I wasn’t sure if I knew how to ask questions to get the most out of the lesson. Ursula took the questions I had and expanded on them very well, dug up some new questions, explained the same thing to me multiple times and in different ways until I understood and was not intimidating at all! I look forward to our next lesson.
