About J. Douglas

German tutoring is available with a seasoned, experienced instructor of German who has worked with a wide range of ages and ability levels. I have taught in both public and independent boarding schools, in community colleges, universities, and adult education in Massachusetts and instructed everything from beginning German through Advanced Placement German 5. I am the first non-native considered competent to teach adult education German at the Goethe-Institut, Boston. I studied at Universit├Ąt Hamburg and lived and worked in Germany for three years. In addition to teaching, I have worked as a German editor, translator, and court interpreter at First District Federal Court and have co-authored a beginning German textbook. I am happy to tailor instruction to the student's needs and desires: immersion instruction, non-grammar driven communicative instruction, grammar-based instruction, survival German for travel, conversation and composition, and other styles.

Doug really helped my son with what he knows and what he thinks he knows. He also interacted with school to ensure all were aligned on what needed to be done. Thank you
