German Online Tutoring

German Tutor NYC AP German Tutoring

The price for our online German tutoring service is $60 for a 60-minute lesson.

For online lessons, we use digital learning material and the video conferencing service "Zoom." 


We are committed to ensuring flexibility. Hence, we have incorporated flexible schedules that intend to accommodate free rescheduling for the same day.

However, on jam-packed days, free rescheduling may not be possible. See more info about our Reservation and Cancellation Policy by clicking here!

For many different reasons, the availability of German books in the US is minimal. But Audible offers a great variety of German audio books. They can be fantastic for practicing your listening skills, and some of them are also available on Kindle. Purchasing both, you could listen and read at the same time. Use the Audible link to start a free trial, get two audiobooks for free, and check out our other Amazon links below for recommendations of specific books and other German material. We like the Ingrid Noll crime stories a lot and enjoy working with them.

Duolingo can be a fantastic tool for building vocabulary. We have a few clients that had not done anything but Duolingo for a year, and they had an excellent understanding of German. Duolingo works well if you do it regularly. It is gratifying, giving you sounds, icons, and points. But it also punishes you by redoing a lot of chapters, if you do not use the app often enough. This can become very frustrating. For people, who learn less frequently, Memrise might be the better tool. Use the link, join our Duolingo group and win prizes. (more about that)

Memrise is less of a game, and that makes it more flexible. It works similar to flashcards and is less rewarding than Duolingo, but it is also not going to punish you. While Duolingo is very good for beginners, Memrise might be the tool you want to move to, when Duolingo becomes too easy. We are working on our JacobiTeacher Memrise courses right now and are planning on publishing them soon.

Grammar and course books

Most language learning material caters to group settings, especially for learning German. But you are not a group. Most books you can find will probably not be very helpful for studying German as an individual. We do not recommend any of the popular Klett and Cornelsen books from Germany.


But we do recommend some books from the McGraw Hill Practise Makes Perfekt German program. It is an excellent tool for learning German as an individual.


Additionally, we recommend a few conversational dialogue books. Follow the links below to get to the correct Amazon listings.


For children and teenagers, we recommend most Hueber material. It makes a start into German fun. We have been using it successfully for years.
