“I love taking German classes because the German language stimulates my brain more than Spanish or French. I view German as my anti-Alzheimer therapy, but it is a lot more fun than crossword or Sudoku puzzles. With Andi, who is one of the best teachers I’ve ever encountered, the classes are filled with variety: short reviews of past lessons, grammar instruction, listening skills, peer to peer discussions, and question and answer periods. Andi skillfully makes use of all modalities so that we are reading, writing, speaking, listening, and hopefully thinking in German. And all the while, we’re having a great time smiling, laughing, and learning in a stimulating, but zero-pressure environment.” - Karen R.
"Andi is an excellent teacher! I have been taking German lessons with her for the past 18 months, and I have learned so much. Andi's lessons are meticulously planned, so that we progress through grammar practice, reading examples, vocabulary explanations, and conversational challenges. It is very rewarding and also great fun! Andi is charming and patient, and this has given me the confidence necessary to explore a new language and I can honestly say that my Monday class is one of the highlights of my week." - Elizabeth
"Andi is a wonderful teacher and I have already learned so much from her. She's great at explaining the rules and she makes learning German really fun. If there's anything I don't understand, she takes the time to go into detail which I really appreciate. She is always encouraging.” - Alina P.
"I’ve been trying to learn German on my own for several years with the use of tapes and books, but other than learning a lot of vocabulary words, I really couldn’t put sentences together. Andi has really helped me understand the basics of the language and even coaxed me through the grammar. I really appreciate the well planned out lessons tailored to my particular interests which keeps me excited about learning more. I can highly recommend Andi and know you will enjoy her fun nature and engaging personality." - Bob P.
I really wanted to provide my kids with foreign language education. My 10 year old son begrudgingly chose to learn German. I had very basic German language skills after living in Switzerland for a short time and wanted to keep growing. We decided to undertake German study together. Andi has been the perfect teacher for us! She has enthusiastically accepted the challenge to provide both of us with growth opportunities at our individual levels. She uses fun games to illustrate concepts and creates engaging speaking and writing exercises that work for both of us despite our differences. She is very patient and kind, creating a safe environment for exploring, asking questions, going deeper into a concept where there is an interest. My son is excited to study and loves going to class each week. I’m thrilled with our progress and wholeheartedly recommend Andi as a teacher! -Kristi H.
"Andi is a fantastic teacher! I've learned more in just a few lessons with her than over a year of daily self study. She is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and patient with her teaching method. I highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning how to read, write and speak the German language.
