My specialization is to prepare individuals for rigorous tests like the SAT I and II; German, AP German (Advanced Placement Test), and for the challenging German language admission test at universities in Germany. I also prepare for work and life in Germany, or just for visiting family and be able to communicate with them.

I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring and co-authoring textbooks for the English classroom. Since I have been living in the ...

Mr Wolfgang has been teaching my children German for several months now. He agreed to help them learn German even though they had not learned any German before. They love their lessons. He makes learning German for my kids fun which is impressive for entertaining a 6, 8, and 9 year old. He is patient with them and is flexible with timing for me. I am so thankful we have him in our lives.

After my first lesson with Wolfgang, I knew that I had found the right German tutor for me. In order to obtain my degree, I am required to take and pass a German test which covers the equivalent of a college level German 1, 2, and 3. While I have taken some German in the past, my knowledge is incomplete and scattered. Wolfgang has had no problems determining my current understanding and formulating a path forwards to reach my goals. In addition, he is humorous, patient, and extremely knowledgable on the subject. I would highly recommend Wolfgang as a tutor to any prospective German student.

Wolfgang is an outstanding tutor by every metric. He created lesson content for me as I prepared for the Goethe B1 Exam that was topical, interesting, and highly effective. My German improved enormously and the lessons were great fun as well.

I've now had four lessons with Wolfgang, and I've gone from speaking a few words, to learning basic sentence structure, intros and greetings, as well as proper pronunciation. Wolfgang is a master at his craft with all his knowledge of the German Language. He has been very patient with me, especially my pronunciation, and takes the time to make sure I understand all of the material I am learning. I'm looking forward to seeing how much farther along I am after four more lessons.

Wolfgang is a great teacher! My schedule is very difficult and sometimes I do not get through the homework, but he is always ready to progress the lesson by other means. He is very good at keeping the lesson on track and maximizing your investment. Totally worth it!
- Ryan T. from Conifer, CO
Thanks to Wolfgang's teaching style, I have been making good progress in learning German. He helps me with right pronunciation, grammar, usage of expressions, and many more. He also talks about some general German culture norm just so that I am aware of it. He makes the learning really enjoyable. Thanks a lot!

I have been learning German with Wolfgang for almost a year now and he is an amazing teacher. He is patient, has a great grasp on German language history and can tailor classes to fit your learning style. I would suggest him 10 out of 10 for any who is looking to learn German.

Wolfgang was very professional and clear on how the process of learning German will work and be tailored to meet my specific needs. We started on some tasks and even have homework set for next week!
- Jim C. from Kansas City, MO
Wolfgang is a great instructor. He is patient and clear. He possesses a depth of understanding for the material that is hard to find. He clearly explains concepts and provides excellent examples. Best of all he understands the small traps that appear while learning a language and can appropriately warn students so that the do not waste any time. You will indeed be fortunate to have Wolfgang as your instructor.
- David H. from San Luis Obispo, CA
So enjoyed my first lesson with Wolfgang! His comprehensive approach and patient, reassuring manner has already given me greater confidence and every expectation that I might actually succeed at learning this new language. Danke, Wolfgang!
- Marilyn N. from La Jolla, CA
I needed a little bit of direction and Wolfgang was able to come through in a pinch. He was able to help on short notice and was very helpful.

Wolfgang was an extraordinary, great teacher!! My situation was very unique in that I spoke absolutely no German as of October 30th and I asked Wolfgang to teach me enough of the language so that I could correctly give my daughter's toast for her wedding in German language. I wrote the toast out completely in English and Wolfgang then translated it into the German version. In 6-8 sessions where he showed incredible skills on pronouncing words and inflection and pauses and even when to slow down and emphasize something - thus I gave the 2 page toast flawless. If there was a category above excellent in teaching skills- patience and getting results that is where I would put him. He and he alone made the room clap after the toast!!! If you need a German tutor in any way he should be your 1st choice! You, my friend, will be thanking me and you will never be disappointed!!

Wolfgang was well prepared for the first lesson of my middle school age daughter. He corrected her pronunciation and her grammar, prodded her to speak in German, all the time being highly encouraging. When the lesson ended, she was so happy and felt she had made progress. I recommend him highly.
- Jeryl S. from Vail, CO
Superb at pronunciation and word usage, and prefers that grammar be learned organically. Very knowledgeable both regarding the language itself (he is a native speaker) and the best means of teaching language.
- Leif C. from San Antonio, TX
Wolfgang is a wonderful, tutor, teacher and mentor. For quite awhile I have wanted to learn to speak German. Wolfgang has and continues to guide me toward my goal. Wolfgang is very patient, flexible and understanding. He has adapted his lessons to best fit my way of learning. This is no simple task in itself. But Wolfgang has found a method of teaching that goes well beyond words and phrases. It strengthens my understanding of the culture. This is critical to successfully comprehending any language. Wolfgang is a true Linguist. His expertise is far-reaching, not just in syntax or morphology, but in the history from which the language is born. This knowledge is indispensable and cannot be found elsewhere. Since first meeting Wolfgang, my knowledge has grown exponentially. Wolfgang challenges me with every session and I look forward to each one.
