Hello and welcome to my profile : ) I am a certified language trainer and a certified translator and I specialize in TAILOR-MADE GERMAN TUTION FOR NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS. I have given more than 50 thousand lessons in one-to-one tuition and I also specialize in Deutsch Zertifikats-Training. My students usually take the Goethe Zertifikat (level A1-C2) - as external students. More than a thousand students prepared for their Goethe Zertifikat with me.
My approach to teaching is a mixture of written material such as books and my own exercises which I tailor and design according to the student's individual needs. All the books and printed material I am working with are in accordance with the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference For Languages) as well as the learning material that I prepare for you. During my lessons I focus on a student centered teaching style and I am emphasizing all four abilities "speaking", "listening", "reading" and "writing" during my lessons. You will always practice with "high quality" audios and videos as well.
I have been giving private lessons to pre-school children, school children, university students, business people and retired people from all five continents for more than three decades and I always preferred giving one-to-one classes because the student benefits so much more. Lessons can be set to the student's pace and I can fully concentrate on supporting this one student. I grew up with English and German and went to a private academy for interpreting and translating. I am very well versed with the grammar of both languages - English and German. Many of my students prepare for the Goethe-Zertifikat with me and I am very proud that 99% of my students passed the exam at the Goethe Institut (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) with "sehr gut" excellent results.
I have worked as a translator and language trainer in one-to-one tuition for more than thirty years. My subjects are English and German language training on all levels A1-C1 as well as Business English and Deutsch für den Beruf
Further and detailed information can be found on my website in the "about" > "testestimonials" section

Another subject I specialze in is DSH Training (Deutsche Sprache für den Hochschulzugang), as well as dissertations, masters and bachelors

Perfect! Leonore is an excellent German tutor. She's nice and patient and my student benefited from her a lot. Strongly recemmend.
Working with such a smart and diligent student is great fun. Progress can be seen during every lesson. I do love teaching and with this student it is great fun to observe the improvements with speaking, writing, listening and reading every time we meet. : )
After such a long time, i've finally found the right teacher for me.
Leonore is my Ariadne's thread! She is leading me through the maze of the german language in a step by step, structured way which fits and is adapted to me and my personality. She shows immense skill in her adaptability.
Most importantly of all she delivers her lessons with an empathetic and friendly twist of the ear. Which is greater depends on which is needed more!
Leonore was my German language teacher while I was living in Frankfurt in 2011-2012. With her help I was able to quickly pick up the language and develop confidence in my writing, reading and speaking skills. She is a very effective teacher and experienced teacher and I would highly recommend her to future students. She is very personable and committed to helping her students grow.
Leonore is a very good teacher. She is demanding and very thorough so you know you are always in good hands. She is also very passionate about her work and friendly.
Leonore always encouraged me to take the Goethe Institut exams. I decided to go ahead and it gave my learning a good structure and myself a clear plan I would follow. I passed my exams from Level A1 to B1 with very good grades which gave me a sense of achievement and confidence in using my German.
I highly recommend Leonore to any level student of German.
Leonore was my German teacher for several years.
She got me from a fairly basic level to intermediate level two (B2).
Leonore has a very structured approach and brings in real life examples to reinforce learning.
She used many different sources of material in our sessions to make learning very enjoyable experience.
