Bio

Language is a carrier of culture and traditions of a nation and I was always interested in foreign languages and travelling to other countries.
After graduating from the "gymnasium" (comparable to the international bacchaularate) I became a physical therapist, but lived and worked in different countries like Switzerland, Spain and California (continuing education).

Language is a carrier of culture and traditions of a nation and I was always interested in foreign languages and travelling to other countries.
After graduating from the "gymnasium" (comparable to the international bacchaularate) I became a physical therapist, but lived and worked in different countries like Switzerland, Spain and California (continuing education).
I met my husband in Hawaiì, where lived for a little more than two years and that´s where I started to translate documents. When I got pregnant with our first child we moved back to Germany. I tutored children in English for school

All of our children are brought up bilingual. We kept speaking English at home.
Now, 12 years later and all together three children we are back in the United States and it would be great, if I could continue tutoring and/or translating.

Great results

Doris adapted her approach to my specific needs and level of German. After only a few hours I’m reAdy and confident that my return visit to Germany will be productive and enjoyable. Many thanks.

John, 4 lessons with Doris

Patient and methodical

Together we are developing the approach that benefits my learning. Relaxed and effective as I felt very comfortable in the first lesson. Definitely not rushed and making full explanation of all exercise items. Looking forward to more lessons...

Kind and Helpful Tutor

Doris has been a very helpful German tutor. She has an amicable manner about her that really helps you to feel relaxed and not afraid to make mistakes. She is very good at adapting the lessons to meet the students needs. Her way of teaching helps you to think and construct sentences in a natural German way from the beginning, rather than being stuck in English translation mode. I would definitely recommend.

Rachael, 26 lessons with Doris

Very Patient and Easy to talk to.

Doris was very nice. She has the personality that makes you want to learn, and an easy manner about her that made my grammar mistakes a little more bearable. Doris was an excellent tutor. We did not have much time together, as our schedules did not quite match. However, I am certain she did everything she could to make our time the best.

Duane, 2 lessons with Doris

Very good tutor.

Patient and helpful. Easy to work with and flexible with appointments. I would highly recommend Doris to anyone looking for a German instructor. She is very easy to understand and teaches at your pace.

Sharon, 8 lessons with Doris

Solid Teacher

She has been very helpful with my learning the German language. She has a very very good ear for my mispronounciating some words and politely calls me on it and for that I am grateful and getting better in my pronunciation in German. I recommend her without a doubt.

Samuel, 2 lessons with Doris

Fantastic German Tutor

I am very happy with the job that Doris did in helping me to learn German. She was born and raised in Germany, and comes from a region of Germany that does not have an accent, which is so important when learning how to pronounce the words properly. Doris is very kind, helpful and never judgmental. I always felt relaxed and comfortable working with her. When I made mistakes, she encouraged me and helped me to master whatever was the problem. Overall, she is an excellent teacher. She prepares well for the sessions, patiently going through the lessons and often preparing her own grammar drills during her free time, in addition to the material in the book. I highly recommend Doris as a German tutor.

Howard, 8 lessons with Doris

Knowlegeable and flexible.

Doris was able to adapt our tutoring lessons specifically to my German learning needs and that was very nice. She was so used to teaching that she constructed an impromptu lesson based on the kinds of dialogues that I wanted to know. She was very good.

Awesome tutor

Mrs. Doris is very professional and very patient when it comes to learning the German language. I've been a student for about almost a year and love the way she teaches and make the language seem easy. Everyone knows learning German is a tough language. I was scared going in with the lessons. But Mrs Doris made me feel comfortable and confident in speaking the language. She was really what I needed and prepared me well for my trips over to Germany. Very flexible when it comes to appointments. Worked with me well when it came to my busy schedule. And her a native of Germany helped a lot also. So definitely a GREAT tutor and now a GREAT friend
