Roland is an enthusiastic teacher, and a native German speaker. He is kind and helpful. He wants to respond to the style of each student. The classes are not structured enough for an advanced learner, or for the ones who wants to have a serious format, but he is very empathetic and a good conversation partner. Fun to work with.Oct 18, 2018Verified
I highly recommend Roland! I needed help with a German translation project, and he was the perfect fit for the job. He was quick to respond and was very thorough and thoughtful.Oct 18, 2019Verified
Roland was great, he had an easy way of making you learn and the materials and apps were not costly.Sep 27, 2018
