What do people say about GermanWithNicole.com?

"Nicole is a fantastic teacher! She is organized, knowledgeable, supportive and patient. I am a classical singer and voice teacher with specific goals to move to Germany and I have found that Nicole has tailored each lesson to achieve the goals that I have. Nicole provides the grammar lesson with the add-on's of culture, music, the do's and don't's in the German culture and makes the language and lessons relevant! She also incorporates different methods of learning styles and different learning tools, adjusting to my learning style. And to add to it all, she makes it FUN! I am excited and inspired after every lesson, despite the challenges of learning a second language.

Brava Nicole! I am very excited to continue working with you!"

"I've taken a lot of language classes in my life and you are a great teacher.

You're so good because you're not a native speaker but you have to ability to explain the language English speakers."

From a client who took and passed the Swiss citizenship test:

Nicole Notes: In addition to practicing speaking in German, Dr. Janice C. and I spent several lessons discussing the Swiss governmental system and how to prepare mentally for such an exam. Our final lesson before her interview was a practice interview.

"I must thank you sincerely and intensely for all of you coaching and teaching….Both in the language department and also in the confidence and presentation department.

I dressed up a bit, tried to just be myself, gave up worrying about the right adjective endings etc and just tried to find some words that would convey the general meaning….without you, I can say that I would not have been able to do this.

I used many of the sentences and ideas that we prepared, and I just could not have done it without your help!!!!"

"A down-to-earth and real-life experience of learning German and understanding that everyone's situation is different and everyone learns differently."

"Nicole is the best kind of teacher there is --- serious, organized, supportive, and very funny. She understands right away what your needs are --- what concepts you're getting and what you aren't. Taking lessons from Nicole has been enjoyable and has given me the confidence to begin speaking German with the Austrians in my office. GermanWithNicole is also convenient and flexible. You can set a weekly lesson at a time that works for you. If a conflict arises, give her notice and you can always reschedule."

“Nicole really helped me get back on track with my German studies after many years of dabbling here and there. As soon as I made the decision to get more serious about my studies, I contacted Nicole. She quickly helped me determine my starting point, and to define a structure that would speed up my learning process. She was flexible in allowing me to work at my own pace (I can get obsessive if I really get into something!), and as a teacher she is extremely attentive, patient, warm, encouraging and kind. In addition to Skype video lessons with Nicole, I also benefited tremendously from all of the materials she makes available to all of her students on GermanWithNicole.com. Since your first teacher in a new language is perhaps the most important, I give Nicole my highest recommendation for impassioned German enthusiasts and learners of all levels.”
