Learning German can be tough, whether you're a beginner just starting to pick up the language or an experienced speaker aiming to develop true fluency. No matter your current skill level, we can match you with a German expert who can work with you one-on-one and develop a personalized curriculum that addresses your unique interests, needs, and learning preferences.

How can a Seattle German tutor near me help me develop my German?

While German is closely related to English, it diverges in some key ways that can present a challenge to learners at all levels of ability. Seattle German tutoring allows your instructor to target the specific concepts that you'd like to study and cater to your interests. For example, if you have a student who would like to travel in Europe or study abroad in Germany, a private mentor can focus on phrases and vocabulary that can be useful when making hotel reservations, purchasing food, navigating public transit and airports, and so on. You might have a particular interest in German history or literature, in which case your instructor could place an emphasis on academic German vocabulary and grammatical forms that you're likely to see in written German. Unlike a traditional classroom in which you're required to follow the same lessons as everyone else, one-on-one mentorship can take your goals into account.

You or your student can work at whatever pace you find most effective as well. Seattle German tutors can take the time necessary to iron out any issues that you're having before moving on, ensuring that you're building a strong linguistic foundation and aren't incorporating mistakes into your German usage. These misunderstandings can be difficult to remove once you've gotten used to them, and a tenuous grasp on the basics can make advancing to more complex German concepts difficult, so studying with someone who can give you moment-to-moment feedback can help smooth out the learning process.

Additionally, a Seattle German tutor can use teaching methods that you or your student respond to. For a visual learner, say, they can put together pictorial memory aids that can help students associate vocabulary words with pictures, or work on sentence diagramming to make German grammar more accessible. The same goes for auditory learners, tactile learners, or anyone else. A German mentor can create German-language shopping lists so you can get hands-on experience using German at the grocery store, record pronunciation guides, and create other activities. The more time you or your student spend studying with a private instructor, the more they can refine their approach to suit your needs.

How can I fit Seattle German tutoring into my busy day?

Learning any language requires you to commit to consistent practice, so it's important that you or your student be able to attend tutoring sessions easily. We've gone to lengths to provide you with a variety of flexible scheduling options, so you can find Seattle German tutors who can give you the instruction you need on your timetable. When you sign up you'll be able to choose between online and in-person mentoring. If you opt for online instruction you'll work with your German teacher through our Live Learning Platform, which includes video chat software that lets you interact with your instructor face-to-face. You can also engage with a variety of integrated tools, like a shared document editor that can aid you in developing your ability to read and write in German, a virtual whiteboard that your mentor can use to jot down notes and draw diagrams, and more. All of this will be available right at your fingertips from any location where you have internet access and a computer or mobile device.

If you or your student would prefer to study with their German instructor in person they can arrange to meet wherever is most convenient for you. You can work at a local cafe, a library like the Seattle Public Library's Central Library or Capitol Hill Branch, or even in your own home. You also have the option of working with other German learners in an online class led by a qualified teacher. If this appeals to you, reach out to one of our educational consultants to learn more about classes and how you can get enrolled.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

German Tutoring review by Dorit in Seattle, WA
We first reviewed telling the time. We then reviewed adjectives and their opposites. We extended the exercise from the last session and practiced composing and writing complete sentences using adjectives. We then watched a short video clip about adjectives that reviewed known adjectives and introduced a few new ones.

German Tutoring review by Helene in Seattle, WA
We started the lesson by going over a worksheet focusing on asking and answering common questions. We then continued with the topic of last time: places in the city. This time, we focused on indicating the location of a place by situating it in relation to other places. HW for next time: generate own questions and answers based on syntactic patterns of the questions we went over.

German Tutoring review by Michael in Seattle, WA
He and I had another great session. We worked through a couple of worksheets involving adjective endings and then we broke down each sentence and used the book charts to check his answers. He is getting very good handling these on his own. Then we worked on a short story involving Munchhausen. His teacher expects them to write a spin-off story involving Munchhausen and is giving them creative freedom. He came up with a cool story involving Munchhausen making a trip to the St. Louis Arch and climbing all the way to the top (on the outside of the structure).

German Tutoring review by Alice in Seattle, WA
The student did his reading for the coming week and I helped him hear the difference between the sounds "r" and "l". We did a lot of exercises to help him recognize and pronounce "reli" as opposed to "leri". His mom told me that some of his mistakes come from the way he reads Spanish. The writing was very good, I helped him with the size of the letters and their proportions. He understood immediately and did better and better. I helped him read a poem in his notebook. I focused on a sound that kept coming back and asked him to identify different letter combinations resulting in that same sound. We also worked on the vocabulary, especially some food items and fruit.

Reviewed avoir and the numbers. Learned the months of the year, practiced the days of the week, and learned the seasons and colors. Played "Eye Spy" with the colors. Began working with the chiffres ordinaux and reviewed a dialogue from class.

German Tutoring review by Taylor in Seattle, WA
We reviewed his final exam outline for his test on Thursday. We mostly focused on practicing for his oral exam by studying the pictures and coming up with a detailed narrative to memorize for a 2 minute recitation.
