I was born in Germany and lived and worked there for 45 years, including for an international company, for which I was required to combine German and English. I have a Masters in Education for Biology, Sport and German as a Foreign Language from the University of Bielefeld. I enjoy teaching my native language and helping people increase their German skills and cultural competency. I work with the newest techniques and tools for "Deutsche als Fremdsprache" with worksheets, online questions and quizzes.

I had an amazing experience with Ellen; she is friendly, prepared, and has great insight. Ellen helped me relax and quell my fears about speaking the German language. I look forward to our future lessons.
This review was based on working with Ellen for a month for approx. 6 hours per week.
This is my first time seriously studying a new language as an adult. While I have studied other languages previously, my studies began in the school setting in high school.
Thus it was important for me to find a native speaker that was experienced, fun and offered comprehensive study of the language. Ellen met all of these qualifications. She is dedicated to her craft and you can tell that teaching is her "calling" and something that she takes very seriously.
Ellen offered multiple tools including online guides, interactive websites, songs, news and other media. In addition, she had creative solutions for how I can memorize vocabulary, which is needed since it is time consuming.
Most importantly, Ellen took the time to ensure that I had the basics, such as pronunciation , grammatical rules, which became the foundation for additional learning of German. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ellen to anyone trying to study or improve upon their German language skills.
She is very patient and great to work with. It's always great learning from a native speaker of a language and I highly recommend Ellen if you're considering learning German.
