Fun and open-minded bilingual offers German lessons in Chicago with 5+ years of experience

Methodology

My teaching approach is usually hands-on and based on the student's interests. Say, they like music - we will look into song texts etc. to get a first introduction and feel for the topic in question. Moreover, I encourage to create visual aids that are structured. When people have trouble learning a language, it often comes down to the fact that they have not understood or been taught the overarching rules to the structure of that language. That's where I start. I will also help with pronunciation (I know, that's where German is so cruel). I will give insights to different ways of learning new vocab so that they find the method which works best for them, however I strongly advise students to actually study the words in their own time.

Background

I am from Germany and recently moved to Chicago to be with my husband. I have a degree in Applied Linguistics from TU Dortmund in Germany and simply love language. Throughout high school I've been a tutor and when the course work allowed, I continued during my studies. In sum, I have taught about 10 students and love seeing them grow and how their confidence in their own abilities strengthens.

I've known Verena for about 4 years and she has been my german tutor for the past 2 years. I reached out to her when I wanted to start learning german and she was more than happy to help. We started from scratch, I knew zero german, she was able to provide practice tests and other resources to help establish a vocabulary. She is a great conversation partner once you feel comfortable enough with the language. She has always been kind, patient and understanding. I now feel comfortable traveling through Germany on my own and can have communicate effectively with my German friends. I cannot recommend her enough!
