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 of time and have taught countless students from all over the world. I have been living in the U.S. for sixteen years and I am currently teaching all classes online but would also be willing to teach at a mutually acceptable location upon special request.

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 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.

Really a great tutor who makes the learning fun...

Ursula is really a great tutor who makes the learning fun. Very patient and willing to accommodate a dynamic schedule. After settling on the proper text and workbooks for my level we got right to work. Takes the time to explain why things are important and to go slowly to establish a solid foundation.

Great German teacher

Ursula is very patient. She has lots of experience teaching English speakers how to get to a functional level of fluency in German. She has a system and she definitely comes across as knowledgeable. I just started taking lessons but I feel confident that if I continue to put in the work I will be able to speak German with Ursula's help.

My first class - I'm so impressed and overwhelmed

My class with Ursula went awesome! The way she conducted it was great, and I keep all the notes she's been making for me during our conversation - this was unexpected and utterly convenient! We defined our goals taking my preferences into account, Ursula recommended a plan and I absolutely agree with it and would love to follow all her advice. I could never expect more and I'm happy to have met such an experienced teacher like Ursula. I hope I'll do well under her guidance, I appreciate her knowledge, kind attitude and patience with.
