HOMESCHOOLERS ARE WELCOME (both individuals and groups)! SPECIAL GROUP RATES ARE AVAILABLE!

I am a German native familiar with various languages and cultures, and I understand your difficulties 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 lived in the U.S. for over twenty years, and I am currently teaching most classes online. My students' ages range from 8-83 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 groups or for longer 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 of the first class.

I am familiar with the difficulties students face when learning English as a Foreign or as a Second Language. I have been teaching languages for many years and I am currently teaching students from all over the world and at many different levels. Some of them are practicing English for relocation, their job, for their studies, for various tests, job interviews, or for travel and general purposes. I can help you!

A fine teacher.

It was my very good fortune to find Ursula and continue my learning German journey. I have found her instruction clear and well organized. She is teaching me to communicate in German as a native would. She pushes me and I learn. I enjoy her sense of humor. I have had over 200 lessons in the past two years. It has been a pleasure.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ursula is prepared, knowledgeable and passionate in helping teach German. She tutors my high school daughter, and does a great job. They have a good rapport. I highly recommend Ursula.

David, 14 lessons with Ursula

Two years and counting

My son has been using Ursula for two years now to supplement the German he is studying in high school. She is highly organized, motivating, and offers real world application. She approaches the lessons formally, using a structured book and workbook and uses every minute of the lesson efficiently. If my son has questions throughout the week, she responds promptly. She is flexible regarding scheduling as my son is a busy high schooler. I can’t say enough good things about Ursula and am thrilled that my son is happily learning another language.

great tutor - makes online school much easier!

My younger son meets with Ursula weekly in a small group of three. I continue to hear from the other parents that their child is greatly benefitting from the tutoring sessions and I completely agree. Ursula is the secret to success with virtual school German class!

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!

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!
