Patient and knowledgeable Spanish/German Language Tutor
I have been teaching German and Spanish for the past 12 years, worked for Berlitz Language School, Language Academy in Dallas, TX and also a language school where I teach online. Teaching language is my passion, my lessons are vibrant, energetic, filled with conversations and I make sure I will make you talk very quickly. I am very efficient and I make it fun for you. Because of my extensive traveling, I also have the knowledge not only of the language, but also the culture, history, food and…
Michelle L. from Suwanee, GA Learning from Barbara is fun and stress-free. She is so sweet and patient. Barbara is a native speaker of German so over time it's easy to get a feel for the genuine pronunciation and inflections. I also feel like I've learned a lot about German culture through our lessons. Her teaching style is less "textbook" and more natural - vocabulary and grammatical concepts are introduced as part of a topic (family, food, travel, shopping, etc) and most of our time is spent in practice conversations. I started with no prior knowledge of the language and this has been very effective for me!
Albert W. from Alpharetta, GA I cannot imagine a better tutor than Barbara. She is a pleasure to work with, patient and has an extensive knowledge of the German language and the German culture. She has the ability to teach in accordance with my learning style and makes it each class energetic and fun.
Jennifer M. from Cumming, GA Barbara has a great personality. She is reliable and flexible with her schedule to meet our tutoring needs. She understood immediately what my 15 year old needed to grasp in order to maintain passing grades in Spanish. She knows how to engage my son - passing on her knowledge and helping him retain the information. She always checks in during the week to ensure the date of his lesson is confirmed and inquires what topics they are covering in school that week to make sure she is prepared for his lesson. We appreciate everything she has done and we enjoy working with her.
Tom M. from Duluth, GA I have a large team in my business that is in Spain, and wanted to learn Spanish. I knew I couldn't do it on my own and needed a tutor. I was fortunate to find Barbara. She has made the learning process fun, and has helped me a lot in only several months. Every session has built on the one before it and is very well planned and I love her handouts that allow me to practice and study on my own. I began with trepidation and doubt whether I could even learn a foreign language, but Barbara has made me believe that I can do it. I plan on continuing my lessons with her until the day I can speak fluently. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone! I think I will impress my Spanish team with my progress when I travel to Barcelona in a month!
