Private In-Home and Online German Tutoring

Receive personally tailored German lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with in-home and online tutoring that offers flexible scheduling and your choice of locations.

Varsity Tutors can find you or your student an Albany German tutor to help develop confidence and fluency. Able to assist students and professionals alike, Albany German tutors are private instructors who can work with any skill level. They can work with beginners learning the basics of German grammar as well as advanced learners. Your mentor can provide learning opportunities at any stage of the process, so you can reach for your German reading and writing goals.

How can an Albany German tutor near me help me learn the language?

Long words don't only challenge your spelling skills. German puts a strong emphasis on the case, gender, and number of nouns (there are four cases, three genders including neuter, and singular and plural forms), as well as definite and indefinite articles that change form based on the noun they're associated with. A private instructor can work with you to understand these rules. Perhaps your student is learning German in school and needs help with the basics, or you're looking to pick up German skills to communicate with business associates overseas. Educators can even help reach for personal goals like communicating with locals if you are planning a trip to Germany.

Albany German tutors provide support in a one-on-one setting. They can focus solely on your needs and customize a study plan that caters to your skill level and learning style. By working at your pace, they can help target growth in your greatest areas of opportunity. If the six tenses in German are hard for you to memorize, practice can be offered here. If, for example, you need more work with pronunciation, grammar, or sentence structure, your mentor can spend additional time covering a topic. When you understand a concept, they can move forward, so your time is spent more efficiently.

With Albany German tutoring, the instructional method can be adapted to how you learn and how fast you progress. Tutors can work with visual, aural, verbal, and other learners. Lessons can incorporate writing exercises and a variety of assignments. Your instructor can therefore measure your progress and correct your mistakes. If you are not perfect now, they can guide you in speaking and writing in German properly. The most appropriate method of practice for you can be the focus of the lessons, whether you prefer one technique over another or something as useful as simulated immersion to learn grammar and pronunciation.

How do I fit Albany German tutoring into my schedule?

A full schedule is one of the biggest barriers to this type of instruction. By taking you and your family's schedule into account, we can look for an educator who can help when you are available. Therefore, you can pursue an understanding of the German language nonetheless and take advantage of private instruction in different formats.

Online instruction uses a Live Learning Platform on which you and your mentor can meet face-to-face. A video chat feature allows real-time communication, while a document editor and virtual whiteboard support a structured approach to learning and collaborating with your instructor. Each session can be recorded so you can review the materials and concepts covered later, all within the comfort of your own home. In-person tutoring is another option you can consider. Meet with your Albany German tutor at home, a nearby café, or the Pine Hills Branch of the Albany Public Library, which can boost your comfort, motivation, and confidence.

If you prefer a collaborative approach that involves more people, we offer online German language courses. You can study in a virtual classroom you access over the Internet. Each course is led by an experienced educator so you and your peers can practice German together. The availability of multiple course sections means you or your student can match available sections with your open time slots.

How can I get started with an Albany German tutor near me?

Varsity Tutors can support your language learning goals no matter what your scheduling constraints may be. We'll get to work finding qualified Albany German tutors once you reveal when and where you can study. Informing us of your needs is the first step. Then we get to work locating a qualified instructor, able to accommodate these needs, for you. In many cases, we can identify a suitable mentor in as little as 24 hours. Learning a language by yourself is not the most effective approach. Speak to an educational consultant who can connect you with someone who can help in reaching for your true potential.

German Tutoring review by Samuel in Albany, NY
Today, Student 1 and I began by reading a higher book. Student 2 and I read as well, and her reading has improved a lot. Student 1 seemed to be able to read the book well. Afterwards, we practiced naming foods. Then, we watched some vocabulary videos on clothing towards the end. I would recommend that Student 1 stay on this reading level for a while before moving on. Student 2 can read much better than a few weeks ago.

German Tutoring review by Dorit in Albany, NY
We looked at the concept of cases used in the German language but we still need to spend some more time on this to develop a better understanding of it. We continued with more spelling exercises in an effort to understand and internalize German grammar patterns.

German Tutoring review by Anke in Albany, NY
We covered the first 2 chapters of German Made Simple with some additional examples for vowel and consonant combinations. The student has a very good understanding of general concepts when learning a language and his pronunciation is very good. There are a few vowels and consonants that did not come immediately, but I have no doubt that he will get a feel for them over the next few sessions. He was extremely well organized, had the suggested material available, and had a very positive attitude. It is a lot of fun working with him. He will review what we covered in this session, will learn the vocabularies and practice their pronunciation. He will also learn the numbers 1-10 and if time, 11-12.

German Tutoring review by Helene in Albany, NY
This session we wrapped up our lesson on the passive voice. We discussed situations when the passive voice is commonly used, and similarities with English. I gave the student some sentence starters and questions that are commonly answered with the passive voice to move us toward becoming more conversational. Homework is to write a little story answering the question "Frank looks terrible. What happened to him?" ("Franz sight schrecklich aus. Was its passiert?") in the passive voice.

German Tutoring review by William in Albany, NY
The student did a good job after a long summer away. We did some sentences about what he did over the summer in German, and just went over vocabulary that came up--this allowed us to formulate some good and useful sentences. Then, I let him pick out a Wikipedia article about a subject that he found interesting, so we read the first few sentences about soccer in German. He did a very good job keeping up; I was very pleased.

German Tutoring review by Wolfgang in Albany, NY
Starting out with contractions of accusative prepositions with the article, the focus of this lesson shifted to the expression of quantity. Here the two main expressions were introduced and practiced. We followed with an aloud reading exercise, translation and checking on the reading comprehension by answering questions about the text in German. This was followed by further exercises.
