Introduction: I'm a professional and experienced German tutor (native speaker from Austria, fluent in English, college degree, over 13 years of teaching experience - all ages) and I have specialized in one-on-one lessons. Whether you want to - learn an overall vocabulary for basic conversation in German - extend your skills into a specific direction or field - brush up your German - know some phrases for your next vacation - or, become fluent and learn the language inside out I will make sure to give you a fun and informative learning experience designed for your needs! I offer ONLINE LESSONS via Skype or Zoom. My detailed price list is below in the FAQ section. ______________________________________ NEW: I'm now offering to work with a shared google doc. This has been very helpful for writing down vocabulary and phrases and transcriptions of our German conversations, so you have everything we're doing together in one place.

German Lessons

I've been working with Peter for a couple lessons now and plan to continue doing so. I am a beginner, so lots to learn, but he's very patient. Lessons focus a lot on actually speaking German, which is good (and a fast way to get over your discomfort). I appreciate very much his flexibility in the lessons, allowing me to ask questions and get clarification on something that might be outside our direct lesson agenda.

I’m so glad I chose Peter as an instructor for my German Lessons. As someone who had no prior knowledge in the German language, I really appreciate his patience and flexibility. He adapts to your learning style and will ensure you thoroughly understand each lesson. Thank you Peter!

So far, I have had two lessons. Already I am learning a lot. He gears the lessons well to my level and yet nudges me on to more in an comfortable way. I enjoy working with him as a teacher.

I started studying German with Peter a few months ago over Skype and I can’t recommend him enough! He’s very knowledgeable and patient and keeps the lessons fun and informative. I’m a total beginner and I’m only learning German for fun but with Peter’s help I really feel like I’m moving forward fast and I have a much better understanding of the language now. Great !!

We love working with Peter! He has been giving our ten-year old daughter weekly lessons for the past two years. Our daughter has grown up listening to and understanding German, but we wanted her to read, write and improve her speaking skills in German. Peter is very creative and able to adapt his teaching techniques, whether she is focusing well or doing headstands during the lesson. His lessons can range from a deep dive into grammar to reading out loud and sentence construction to humor and games. Our daughter does her German homework and looks forward to her lessons.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always offer prospective students a FREE consultation via Skype or Zoom. It matters to me who you are and what your goals are in taking German lessons and I'll happily take the time to come up with a detailed lesson plan to get you where you want to be fast. Generally, I have a ton of materials we can draw from and I enjoy working with a shared google doc where I can write down vocabulary, words & phrases and conversations we are having in German, so you'll have all our lesson content in one place.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm a professional and experienced German tutor (native speaker from Austria, fluent in English, college degree, over 10 years teaching experience - all ages) and I have specialized in one-on-one lessons. I have taught taught about 90 students so far on and off Thumbtack from age 6 to age 75. I have also done many translation jobs (German - English) for companies and institutions such as Deutsches Haus, Incite and Anton Bruckner University.
