How can a German tutor help you?

German is a widely spoken language. It is the official language in Germany, Austria, and Liechtenstein. Learning this new language can help you learn more about the culture it originates from, and it can help you to understand a whole new group of people. German can be a very difficult language to learn, however, as the pronunciations, grammar, and words are very different from English. While learning a language on your own is possible, you can strengthen your skills in German by practicing with a personal tutor. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors can help you find German tutoring in Washington, D.C.

German has several features that make it difficult for students to master. The words are long and similar to tongue twisters; there are four noun case endings, three grammatical genders, and exceptions to many of the grammatical rules. On the other hand, the sentence structure is typically straightforward. Practicing a new language with so many new concepts can be a challenge on your own, but with the help of a Washington, D.C., German tutor, you can improve. A personal tutor can create a curriculum that focuses on reaching any German goals you may have set for yourself. If you'd like to read original German literature or communicate with the locals when you visit, your tutor can build a lesson plan that helps you to pursue these goals.

Session Summaries by German Tutors

German Tutoring review by Emily in Washington DC
My first session with the student went really well. For a beginning Mandarin student, he is able to pronounce pinyin very well, including the tones. We also reviewed the special rules with j, q, x pronunciations and zh/z, ch/c, and sh/s pronunciations when added to the finals i and u. The student was able to practice numbers as well.

German Tutoring review by Anthony in Washington DC
Today the student and I went over some new topics: indirect object pronouns and adverbs. We also practiced completing sentences for his homework. He had some trouble with the indirect object pronouns at first, but after we did some exercises he seemed to become more comfortable using them. If he continues to study them and work on these indirect pronouns with me, there is no doubt that he will master them just as he mastered the direct object pronouns! Adverbs were a little tricky for him at first, so I explained to him that pronouns, as in English, often have many shades of meaning depending on the context of the sentence. For example prima can mean before, earlier, or first ; dopo can mean after, afterward, or later ; presto can mean soon or early, etc. I told him to think about the context of the sentence when choosing his adverbs, which helped him in his homework exercises.

German Tutoring review by Tina in Washington DC
I had updated the print outs of previously covered material and added the material from chapter two which contains a lot of new verbs and verb forms, as well as vocabulary. We will be working on these for quite a while. We worked further on his hiragana writing and added the next string of five. The student still needs to practice those.

German Tutoring review by Michael in Washington DC
The student and I continued the unit on regions of Germany and other geography. We looked at major landmarks and also neighboring countries. Together we compared the USA, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria on stats like total land area and population. Grammatically, we covered superlative adjectives like meistens, besten, naechstens, wenigstens, etc.

German Tutoring review by Helene in Washington DC
This lesson we finished translating and answering questions about a little text on multicultural eating, then we started interviewing each other on each other's eating habits. Homework is to answer the rest of the questions in writing and do the next two exercises as well as learn the vocabulary pertaining to household objects.
