HobbiesBecause cross-country skiing in Central park was a bad idea, I instead decided to spent in more time in alternative coffee shops and bookstores, especially those that offer free coffee refills....

Sandra smoothly helped me claw out from hibernation my rusty German of decades ago and smoothed the remnants of my dialect into proper language. My purpose was to prepare for and gain confidence in my speaking German conversationally during travel abroad. Sandra is exceedingly bright and personable, and clarity is her hallmark. Her fluency in English is native-like. With her expertise in both German and English, she is appropriately responsive to all questions, providing full explanations of grammar, usage, and context, including correctives as needed and illuminating the why of it all. She also mapped out a logical learning path, with her instruction buttressed by a useful textbook and Internet apps. She is a top-notch tutor.
Sandra is an excellent tutor! I worked with her a few times a week for over a month to prepare for a trip to Berlin. She is a skilled teacher, and keeps her sessions energetic and interesting - the time flew by every time we met! She is a native German speaker, but her English also seems "native", so you have the best of all worlds in terms of a teacher. She tailors each session for the individual learner and clearly puts in time to plan ahead and adjust your lesson to take into account questions or difficulties that come up when you meet. She has special handouts for the common hard concepts of the language. She brings in history and real life if that is interesting to you. I could see, from the students who she was working with before and after my sessions, that she works with a wide range of student knowledge levels. I would say I was an advanced beginner, high school German a loooong time ago, and nothing since. The only reason I haven't continued with Sandra is because she has moved to Colorado! if you are there, and can take advantage of her tutoring skills - because you will be going to Germany, or are studying in school and want some extra input to keep it interesting - I highly recommend her. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
I have been studying with Sandra for about two months now and I am thrilled to be working with her. What I find most impressive about her is that she really adapts to one's particular way of learning. Everyone is different in this regard as a result of personality, age, natural affinity for the language, etc., and no two people are alike. Sandra has assessed my strengths and limitations and worked with the former and around the latter to teach me a language whose difficulty I admittedly underestimated. We're still at the beginning, relatively speaking, but the sound and structure are slowly sinking in and it's due to her intelligence and perception in how to present the information to me. She is absolutely first rate and I recommend her without qualification.
Sandra is a great tutor. She's professional, patient, and flexible. I've been working with her for four months and have made really solid progress. I had some background in German but was extremely rusty. She was able to quickly assess my current level and begin building lesson plans accordingly focussing on my specific areas of weakness and moving forward from there placing priority on areas that would be most useful. Lessons include a good amount of conversation (very important) and move at a good pace without being overwhelming. As with anything, you'll get out what you put in - but you would be hard pressed to find a better tutor to help you along the way.
Ms. Weber was an excellent tutor. She is very knowledgeable about the German language and culture. She was always punctual and pleasant. She brought outside sources (like worksheets and books) to tutoring sessions to supplement her lessons. She gives homework that is useful and tries to coordinate what she teaches with the textbook you use in school. Even if you only have a limited amount of time with her, you will still learn a lot. Her price is very fair and worth the money. Highly recommended.
Punctual and focused, Sandra displays an inherent professionalism which compels to excel. Her calm demeanor and clear pronunciation render the German language easily accessible, while her friendly charisma provides for an enjoyable experience which makes learning, well, fun.
Sandra was an absolute dream to work with! She was clear and concise and explained things in a way that was easy to understand. She made the work an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great German tutor!
Very thorough and comprehensive. My German has improved a lot in a short period of time. The lessons are fun and enjoyable. Highly recommended!
Sandra is punctual, personal, and very professional. I have very much enjoyed our lessons. She is willing to work with your own goals and structure the time according to my needs and ability. I would highly recommend her as a tutor!
