About Stephanie


Bio

I was born and raised in Germany where I discovered my love for languages early on. In 2012 I joined a volunteer website to study and teach languages which I have been doing ever since.
I studied Musical Theatre and Pedagogy (B.A.) where I got extensive training to both perform, but also teach.
After college I started teaching German online and in person while continuing my volunteer position.
I enjoy working with people and watching them grow more confident with their language skills....

After college I started teaching German online and in person while continuing my volunteer position.
I enjoy working with people and watching them grow more confident with their language skills.

Since I was born and raised in Germany I have a native speaker grasp of the language. I have been teaching it for several years so I know what problems students run into when trying to study it.
I also grew up with English so I am functionally bilingual which helps when it comes to explaining problems.
Because I studied music and theatre I am professionally trained in speech and hearing. That gives me an advantage when it comes to working with (and eliminating) accents.

Every student is different in his/her studying preferences. Some learn through pictures and colors, others need texts or even music. Through creativity we can find the best way to study together because I know that one size does not fit all.

I'm an open-minded and fun person so feel free to contact me if you want to step up your German game.

Best,
Stephanie

Native expertise and an encouraging tutor

With some knowledge of German under my belt, I felt both challenged and comfortable in my tutoring session with Stephanie — exactly what you want when you need to develop your language skills. Her native fluency in German is an asset, as is her enthusiasm and encouragement (and patience!). I look forward to my next lesson!

Stephanie is amazing!

Stephanie’s tutoring has been invaluable in helping me prepare to take the German language proficiency exam B2. I've been trying to take this exam for 3 years (!) but I kept putting it off. Self-study was not going well for me, especially with an exam as unique as this one. There is no way I would have the courage to sit for the exam without having had a good tutor to walk me through all the sections and practice with me. It is so great to work with someone who is truly familiar with the format of the exam and exactly what the test administrators will be looking for. As a tutor, I appreciate that Stephanie is friendly, always punctual, is well prepared with lessons, and stays focused on the agreed upon material for the allotted time you have together. For busy people, she is a godsend!

A fantastic first lesson

Stephanie set me on the right path to begin learning, pronouncing, and remembering German. She was very patient with me, easy to talk to, and made sure I understood an idea before moving on. I'm scheduling our next appointment right now.

Great teacher!

Stephanie is very professional and attentive, dividing the lesson into few parts so the learning will touch grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, exercising and talking. On top of that, she is very lovely and friendly which makes the whole experience a bit easier and fun. One more huge advantage is that Stephanie is very agile when it comes to times and locations - a big plus to be considered.

Knowledgeable tutor who is easy to work with

I didn't know what to expect going into these sessions with a German tutor as I had never attempted this before. I found Stephanie to be very friendly and easy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything in very comfortable terms. I highly recommend Stephanie for anyone who needs to master the German language.

Great energy, friendly, and awesome all around.

Stephanie is great at paying attention to the details and pointing out where you are going wrong in your vocabulary grammar, etc... She is also well prepared and friendly. Can’t wait for next lesson!

Engaging and great with kids!

With kids, chemistry with the tutor is everything, and I’m so glad they hit it off! Emma (age 7) loved her first session with Stephanie. Stephanie assessed Emma’s level and gave her lessons to suit her ability in a fun and engaging manner. Just the right vibe, too - lighthearted yet consistent. Emma learned a lot In one day - and one hour just flew by. Usually by minute 40, Emma would start getting distracted and unfocused - but not here! I totally recommend Stephanie.
