I am in 6th grade, and I have been taking private German lessons from Frau Christine for 1 or 2 years now.
I have to say that my German has improved tremendously just because of her. She teaches through culture and day to day conversations, making learning German comfortable. She, as a person, is someone who listens, understands and talks to you. At this moment, I am reading a chapter book, "Das Doppelte Lottchen" with Frau Christine. I also work in several workbooks when she assigns it. She is a very, very organized educator, and doesn't load and overwhelm students with the language, like other German American Schools have done to me. For the first time, I have been feeling like I will be fluent in German. During lessons with Frau Christine, I forget that I am in America. She magically leads you into a world where the grammar comes naturally. She has made me WANT to learn German. I recommend this amazing teacher for any young student, especially if they already know how to speak a little German.
