Learn and grow in German with a Swiss teacher
I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent German tutor and teacher. My father is Swiss-German and my mother's ancestors are mostly German. I knew a bit of German growing up but I took German classes in school from ages 12-18 and ended up with an International Baccalaureate certificate in German. I also love German people and culture so come and learn with me, it would be my honor to teach you!

I loved taking lessons from Elise! She is fun, energetic, patient, and kind. She takes time to really get to know you and plans her lessons in a way that is best suited for her students. I loved every lesson I took with her!
