I have taken two German lessons with Kristina so far and I am impressed. I enjoyed my first lesson so much that I attended the second lesson even though I was feeling sick. In this short time, I already noticed Kristina is a skilled instructor with years of experience. She has been gauging my level since I haven't spoken my beginner level German in over a decade and has structured her lessons in a way that isn't too easy, yet difficult enough that I am challenged and learning many new things. I look forward to learning more from her so that I can someday surprise my German friends with decent fluency. ;)

Kristina is great! She’s teaching my daughter German so that she can attend college in a German speaking county and my daughter is absolutely thrilled with her lessons. I highly recommend Kristina!!

After 3 lessons, I'm very happy. After being at a plateau, I've never been more optimistic about effectively increasing my German language skill level. She ensures that the basic grammar is understood, points out tricky parts, and is flexible to explore more challenging material so learning does not get boring. My impression is that she is paying attention to creating the right balance for the individual student but requires commitment to the agreed study plan. I hope to report positive results within 6 months.

Kristina was a fabulous tutor for my neurodiverse teen in German! She tailored the lessons to what my kid responded to and the way she learns. Kristina was flexible and friendly and always was on time and delivered as promised. The materials for study were appropriate and high quality. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Kristina!
