Servus, Grezi, und Hallo German Language Friends!

My name is Pat and whether you're just starting out with words you've learned from movies and menus or you've carried around a Langenscheidt so long that the cover has worn away, I can help you to systematically improve your German Language comprehension and performance.

As a student of the language since I was a wee tween back in 2000, I have since lived, long-term, in three different major German cities on my own initiative. That means that not only do I understand how to navigate the ins-and-outs of the oft dreaded German Bureaucracy (from both a Student's and a Worker's perspective) but I can teach you to understand and adapt to regional dialects so that you have Bmmel when choosing to say Brtchen or Semmel.

Whether you're looking to navigate well the precision of various scholarly works in the original, whether you're simply keen on making sure that your vacation to the Black Forest or Berlin goes off without a hitch, or whether you're just looking to score well on the German AP exam, I am your tutor.

In any case,
I enjoy teaching this language so much because of all the adventures it's enabled me to have.*
What do you say, we get started on some of yours?

*Getting a 5/5 on the AP exam also frees up 15 or more credit hours in courses that you test out of, depending on the University and their policies. That's about an entire semester of classes you can spend on graduating early (as I did) or focusing on any number of other interests.
