The German Society offers private tutoring sessions that are geared toward specific German needs or fast track studies.

Our tutors are available to prepare students for:

  • -travel to Germany for vacation
  • -travel to Germany for business
  • -professional development opportunities
  • -graduate school translation exams (any discipline)
  • -communicating with German relatives/in-laws
  • -speaking, reading, writing for fun

The Society and its tutors typically recommend 1-2 hours per week of instruction. More intensified studies are also available. Tutoring costs $45 per hour.

It is strongly preferred that students commit to and pre-pay for a course of at least six (6) lessons. If the student or instructor must cancel a lesson for any reason, one make-up lesson will be added to the end of the six-week course.

If you are interested in tutoring, please email or call the Society (215-627-2332) with the following information:
