German language learners can contact Varsity Tutors to sign up for Boston German lessons. We offer online lessons in a virtual classroom setting, one-on-one tutoring, and in-person tutoring. Whether you're learning German as a language requirement at Boston Latin School or Match Charter Public School, you're studying the language at Northeastern or another excellent area university, or you're learning the language on your own for career or personal reasons, we can help you.
German is the first language for around 90 million people worldwide, and it's the official language of Germany and Austria. It belongs to the same West Germanic group as English and Dutch and is one of the more common second languages studied in the United States. It has a reliable structure, but it can be tricky for English speakers to learn. Obtaining extra help to study German is an excellent choice.
What are the benefits of the different types of Boston German lessons?
Whether you choose live, online classes or tutoring, you'll be learning from an expert in German who has been vetted to prove their knowledge and teaching skills. You can expect to receive comprehensive language instruction starting at the fluency level you currently possess, whether you're new to the language or at an intermediate or advanced stage. The choice you make will depend on your circumstances and personality more than anything.
Online classroom German lessons can help you save, as they cost less per session than individual tutoring. Plus, working in a collaborative environment, such as Boston German lessons in an online classroom, has been shown to help enhance learning and retention. If you're energized by working with a variety of other language learners towards a common goal, the classroom setting might be best for you.
You can interact with your instructor and your classmates while you're in the online classroom. This allows you to participate in lively discussions, practice speaking German with one another, and perfect your pronunciation with helpful feedback. At the same time, your instructor can introduce the necessary grammar and sentence structure rules, along with providing vocabulary and common phrases to memorize and use in conversations.
In addition, if you need some one-on-one help with a particular concept or topic or extra speaking, listening, reading, or writing practice, you can arrange to meet individually with your instructor for private lessons outside of class time.
If you're more energized by working with one trusted individual while following your unique path to learning German, enlisting the aid of a Boston German tutor may be the right option for you. This type of private instruction is the most flexible option in that your lesson plans can be changed at any time since there are no other student's needs to be considered.
Tutoring is also a good choice if you're seeking to learn German for a particular purpose, such as working with people in your industry or teaching English in a German school. When you study in a class, you'll follow a pretty traditional syllabus, but with a private Boston German tutor, you can focus on whatever aspects of the language or specialized vocabulary you need to learn.
Individual lessons may be right for you if you learn at a pace that's different from the average student. You can work with your private instructor at your speed, moving through customized lessons that take your learning strengths, individual language goals, and other unique attributes into consideration.
Whichever lesson option you choose, you'll have ample time to practice speaking German, which is the best way to learn any new language. You may even start with short conversations on your first day with just a few introductory vocabulary words.
How can I get started with German lessons?
Varsity Tutors makes it easy to fit German lessons of any type into your schedule. New class sections begin each month and are available at a variety of times, so you can find one that meets your scheduling needs.
There's even more scheduling flexibility when you sign up for individual instruction, as you and your Boston German tutor can work out your schedule on a regular basis when you can both meet on our Live Learning Platform from wherever you are at the time.
To enroll in Boston German lessons, contact Varsity Tutors today, and our educational consultants will use the information you provide to enroll you in a German class or set you up with a private instructor. We look forward to helping you with your German language learning skills.

I am a dynamic teacher with twelve years of experience fostering a love of Latin in my students and motivating them to maximize their potential as scholars. I believe that students thrive and succeed in an environment where everyone feels valued and respected. This has been my guiding principle as a teacher, tutor and as a department chair. ... My philosophy of teaching is simple. Students thrive in an environment where they feel respected and valued. As teachers, our words can give students the confidence to try something new and the strength to challenge themselves. It is the responsibility of the teacher to accommodate and to adapt himself to the diversity of personalities and learning styles in his class. In doing so, he can guide everyone entrusted to him to success.

...through in their mind. This helps me explain concepts in ways that would fit the already-existing thought processes the learner has in mind. I believe everyone can learn a language, but not everyone may not teach effectively, as it takes empathy to get to someone's head. A common problem with learners is that they form sentences in ways they would in their native languages. With a little guidance, learners can easily correspond expressions in their...

It was hard going no doubt, but I found that confidence with language was not a matter of learning endless tables and words and phrases, but becoming truly familiar with the tools and the gears that make everything work. This independence is a lasting contribution of studying languages, and this is my tutoring focus. I will not have your student recite tables, we will investigate them and...
