Introduction: The experience of long-time living and teaching in Germany and the United States forms a unique combination, which has its advantages for the student. When my student starts speaking German gives this special joy of knowing that every single word the student articulates in this language is the result of hard but very rewarding work.

German Lessons

Versatile and Skilled. Will adapt his content to a student's liking, be it classic textbook material, colloquial German, or a freeform discussion over a topic of interest. I find that I learn most when I spend time before each lesson to prepare/go over materials that I would like to discuss with him in class (German articles, videos, etc) .

Wolfgang is not only a native German speaker, but he also brings a lot of experience teaching English to Germans and German to Americans in schools and universities, which enables him to do an excellent job explaining grammatical concepts and vocabulary clearly and with impact. He has tailored our lessons to work best for me, including combining structured textbook lessons with other, more fun materials to help learn colloquialisms and actual German usage. He is kind and patient and truly cares about his students' progress.

Excellent instructor. Very patient with me as I learn. As a native German speaker and a professional educator, he teaches not just some German phrases; but how to speak, spell, and properly pronounce the language. Some things you can only learn from someone who is a native speaker of the language.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    First of all, it depends on the kind of level you request to study. Let us assume, you have no idea of German, meaning you start at point zero and have no difficulties learning new things, then the basic price would be $45 per hour. Should you need special instruction in your field, which would mean additional time for preparation, then the preparation time would count as additional instructional time. In case you take a double hour (two hours at a time), you would qualify for a deduction. This would mean, instead of paying $90, you would only pay $80 for the regular class time as a beginner or intermediate student.

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

    During a consultation either online (Skype - my Skype name is wolfgang.soldan) or on the phone, the new customer has the opportunity to ask any question of interest about the German classes. This included teaching approaches, compensations procedures, language goals, time frame, study guidance etc.

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

    I graduated from the prestigious Humboldt University in Berlin (Germany) with an M.A. in English and an M.B.A. as well as with a B.A. in Pedagogy and Psychology. The Department of Education of the Federal State of Berlin licensed me to teach in the fields of English and Economy. After moving to the United States, I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with an M.A. in German Language and Cultures. My teaching certification for the subjects German, English, and ESL was issued by the State Board of Education of Texas.
