I offer a free phone/online/in-person consult including a needs assessment to arrive at a customized strategic plan of learning with clearly defined learning goals, be it for tests (SAT, TOEFL etc.) college, business or travel here and abroad.

I prefer 90-minute rather than 60-minute sessions as my experience has shown this to be the most effective interval of instruction. However, in specific instances, a 60-minute session too may yield the desired outcome. Rates are negotiable based on f...
Reviews
Dr. Susann M is a wonderful tutor. I have been taking weekly German lessons with her for over a year now and have been very impressed with her approach, her knowledge, and her organization. She challenges you to ensure you are progressing while also making the session fun. I highly recommend working with Dr. Susann - you won't be disappointed.

Dr. Susann is nice and she seems to be really experienced with the materials concerning the ACT Reading and English portion. It?s the first lesson I had with her today and I believe I would be able to get to where I needed.

Dr. S is the best for guidance and mentorship on academic projects. I have learned so much from our sessions together! A++ performance and she is always willing to work with your schedule for planning and tutorials.
- David M. from Columbus, OH
Dr. Susann was ready for me when I arrived. She asked me to tell her about myself (in German), we read and talked about a short passage from a magazine, we had some general conversation, and she told me what she believes I need to focus on at this time. The setting was appropriate for a tutoring session, and the atmosphere was comfortable. I do not yet know what my homework is, but I imagine it will be appropriate. I look forward to my next tutoring session with Dr. Susann.

My son was extremely happy and relieved after his first session with Dr Susan on Wednesday. She was able to diagnose his weaknesses and help him understand the strategy needed to nail the SAT . Hopefully under her expertise he will be able to achieve his target score this time ! Thank you Dr Susann for supporting Raunek and helping him believe in himself !
- Sheetal S. from Woodland Hills, CA
Dr. Susann is an excellent tutor; this after just one lesson. She worked with my daughter to review some of the fundamentals of German I as a point of review and in refining her pronunciation. In addition, she provided detailed lesson notes from our session and an assignment of things to work on between sessions. Dr. S has a kind and patient approach and we are very much looking forward to continuing our sessions with her.
- Mea S. from Rochester, MN
Dr. S started to teach me right from the beginning. I feel she assessed me, and got my weaknesses after a few minutes together. If you really want to learn, if you really want to improve...let Dr. S help you! She will effectively guide you towards your goals. Good luck!

Prior to beginning instruction with Dr. Susann, I had one year of college level German. Despite this, there were still some concepts I only half understood, and subtleties of pronunciation I had still not mastered. Dr. Susann quickly got to the core of my problems. She provided engaging and personalized homework assignments which helped me truly understand some grammatical concepts for the first time. Her in-person coaching on pronunciation and conversation has dramatically improved my spoken German in only three months' time. She is flexible in her teaching methods and can use a more organic or structured approach depending on the learning style of the student. Our lessons have been tailored to my specific needs and interests related to work and travel. Her tutoring has been much more effective than any class could have been, and I consider it time and money well spent.

Dr. Susann is very thourough and customizes the lessons to the student's individual goals. She establishes the learning needs of the student and creates a lesson plan based on the most effective learning tools for the student. She makes the lesson very interesting and fun!
- Carol P. from West Jefferson, OH
Dr. Susann did wonderful follow up on becoming our German tutor. As a couple who are looking to learn a second language we were concerned about the group setting, how it would be set up, and financial aspect. Susann accommodated us in all of our concerns. She is very flexible in the lessons and has a great approach. The lessons are always entertaining and provide excellent follow up work for us to work on our own til the next session. Dr. Susann obviously enjoys languages and teaching others. She is passionate in her work and it is evident to her style.
- Adrienne S. from Hilliard, OH
Dr. Susann is a truly wonderful teacher whom I would strongly recommend to anyone looking to improve any aspect of his or her German.
- Henry B. from Cambridge, MA
I have been tutored by Ms M. She customized how she taught German to how I learned. She figured out how I learned through questions and observation. Asking questions about the German language was encouraged so that everything is being understood even if that means re-explaning the topic / concept multiple times. She plans out each session and gives work to do outside of each session. To figure out the amount of work she would ask what else was going on. The best way to get the most out of the sessions is to do the assigned work the best you can. After each class on Wyzant she provides an overview of what was covered during the session and the work to be completed before the next one. The language sessions are much better than the classes a person would take in school. I have had 3.5 years of German language classes in school. I think this is much better because the lessons are customized and one on one.

Dr. Susann does a great job at tasked with teaching me and my son German. We are new and enjoying our new journey down the path to fluency.
- John C. from Ashville, OH
First time using WyzAnt. I am very pleased with our first lesson! It was a great learning experience, paced perfectly for my level. Looking forward to more lessons with Dr. Susann.
- Brandon R. from Columbus, OH
She was a good listener and a good adviser.She explained to me everything I needed for the TOEFL test, and I believe that she is going to help me a lot through my studies.
- Desara K. from Columbus, OH
Susann is a perfect TOEFL teacher for me. She is a very experienced, patient and easygoing teacher. She has her unique teaching technique. I am much more confident right now. I believe if I met her earlier I would have gotten a higher score in my TOEFL test. We have scheduled my next test. I desire to pass it successfully. In my class, Susann corrected my pronunciation. I haven't noticed it before. We practiced some grammar problems. I have enriched my vocabulary. I realized I should concentrate on the main points of a reading or listening paragraph instead of focusing on some details. Learning English is a long term task. It takes time. But I am sure I could improve very fast as long as I have an efficient method and make more efforts on English. I do appreciate Susann. She encouraged me and gave me inspiration. She also cares for my interests. Her assignment is based on some stuff I like most. Susann is an excellent teacher. Thanks a lot. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Today, I got my score of TOFEL. After studying from my tutor Susann, I got 97 this time. While I only got 86 two months ago. I am so excited about it. I appreciate Susann so much. She is really a amazing teacher.
- Jinghua Z. from Columbus, OH
Best professor I ever had, she is so dedicated to her teaching and has a great respect for ESL students. Wonderful and loving teacher. I highly recommend to everybody to take her lessons, register her lessons with your both eyes closed, that?s how much her lessons are very understandable and fun.
- Amal F. from Galloway, OH
I've found Dr. Susann to be precise, caring and intuitive while working with my son who is a sophomore at OSU. She has been able to pinpoint his learning styles as well as his strengths and weaknesses in a very short period of time. My son likes her varied approaches at driving the main points home while keeping it creative and interesting. I am very impressed and believe she has a passion for her work and it shows. Thank you
- Adaire P. from Cleveland, OH
Dr. Susann is a great tutor. She is filled with knowledge and energy that makes students embrace learning and furthering their education. She is very detailed and gives positive feedback with every assignment. She takes her time with her students and does not stop until the work is complete. With the help of Dr. Susann I earned a B+ and learned a lot about writing during the process. I recommend Dr. Susann to everyone, she's great!!
- Roseanna J. from Columbus, OH
Susann works very hard to make sure that what her students learn is applicable to their needs. My internship is with a clothing company in Hamburg so we specifically targeted appropriate terminology for the fashion industry in addition to general vocabulary, grammar, and declension. If you want to learn to speak German (or further your ability to speak) in a truly wonderful and professional atmosphere, I very highly recommend Susann. I'm sad to have to leave such a fantastic tutor, but the internship and Hamburg is calling.
