I grew up bilingual in English and German, have a degree in Language, and obtained a Masters degree in Germany. I have years of experience teaching English and German, working in Germany as a language teacher, and teaching all ages, children and adults. I have experience in the areas of reading, writing, speaking, test prep, presentations, grammar, pronunciation, business language, proofreading, etc. I also have experience working with foster children, refugees, and learning and behavioral difficulties.

I am passionate about teaching others and also have experience teaching art, skiing, nutrition, and horseback riding. I have a wide variety of interests and love sharing my interests with others- teaching is a wonderful outlet for sharing, expanding knowledge, and making meaningful connections.

I am able to be fairly flexible with lesson times and adaptable with lesson content. It is important to me to make learning fun and to provide each individual with the ideal lessons to meet each student´s personal needs and goals. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or would like to talk about scheduling a lesson. I will ensure to reply to messages promptly. I look forward to hearing from you!

So appreciate Lisa!

Lisa has been great for my kiddos! She’s patient, asks and follows up. My 8 and 10 year old daughters are huge fans! Thank you!

Kristal, 40 lessons with Lisa

Very knowledgeable and great with kids!

Lisa started teaching both of my children beginner German. She kept both of my kids engaged (which isn't always easy!) and they both truly enjoyed their lesson. They came out of their session speaking some of the words they learned and continue to practice daily. Lisa was patient and very well organized. She was great with follow up documents and checking in as well. We look forward to continuing to work with Lisa!

Great German teacher for young kids

Lisa has been teaching my daughter German for over months. My daughter did not know anything about German when she started with Lisa, we are very happy to see Lisa was able to engage with her with very well designed lessons and games. Lisa also gave a little homework to her for practice and more for triggering her interest to self-study and explore this beautiful language. German may be the only homework my daughter is happy to work on without parents forcing her. I can always hear my daughter laughing during the class and see smiles on her face after. Highly recommend!!

Wonderful German Teacher

You will not be disappointed in hiring Lisa. We hired her to work with a 9 year old girl. She is engaging and fun. What I loved most about Lisa is how communicative she is. We've never had an issue and every lesson is tailored to you.

Excellent Proof-Reader and Resume Editor

Lisa was wonderful in helping me build a resume. She went over my old resumes and mentioned things I could do to improve them. My resume looks sharp now. She also assisted in writing and proof-reading cover letters for different positions I am applying for. I feel much more confident in my job search.

Best Tutor Yet

Lisa worked with my elementary german student to help him develop some study strategies, clarified some misunderstandings and most importantly gave him the confidence he needed to head into his first college exam! He was very pleased we found Lisa and we will definitely meet with her again as he progresses to the next levels.
