German Testimonials

Jane took time to understand my reasons for wanting to learn German and what I was hoping to achieve by having a German tutor. After having spent a couple of years trying various self-study books, Duolingo and other online apps, having Jane as a tutor completely changed my understanding of the German language. Instead of learning stock phrases, Jane taught me the building blocks of the language onwards, this gave me a solid foundation to advance. I found the lessons varied and interesting. I would highly recommend Jane as a tutor!

I have been learning German for Business with Jane for 10 months and have found her teaching style to be very effective. With a structured learning plan tailored to my company’s objectives, the lesson content is relevant and stimulating. Having the basics from A-level German some 25 years ago, Jane has focused on the grammar and vocabulary needed in my field of work. It has been a pleasure to connect with Jane each week, she takes a genuine interest in me as a student and the encouragement she has provided has really helped to build my confidence in written and spoken work. I would thoroughly recommend Jane to anyone wishing to develop their understanding of the German language or German for Business.

We found Jane through an internet search, after our son had been given a disappointing predicted A level grade, D, by his school. After an initial session with our son, she very quickly highlighted areas within his learning of German that had not been taught correctly. Through Jane’s mentoring and teaching methods, our son’s confidence with the language grew and ultimately raised his predicted grade by 2 places obtaining a B. We would recommend Jane, without hesitation, to anyone who is looking to improve their German language skills.

Thank you so much for all your hard work. You have inspired Charlotte to really apply herself, and I cannot believe how fast her attitude towards learning has changed for the better (as well as her German ability).

I truly appreciate all of your efforts with Charlotte. She is a bright, enthusiastic kid and she had forgotten that. You have reminded her that she can learn, retain and succeed. I am extremely grateful to you.

Jane saved my A-level German couldn’t have done my exams without her, she’s an amazing teacher!


Jane is an excellent, patient and reliable teacher. Her attention to detail is second to none, and she is very organised. I have been attending both classes and individual lessons for over a year, and my German has improved significantly.

Jane keeps the lessons interesting and covers speaking, listening reading and writing thoroughly. We also cover language relevant to my job, which is useful for my professional development. 

I have no hesitation at all in recommending Jane as a language tutor.  

Charlotte, Northwich

Jane is an experienced and passionate language tutor and is structured in her teaching methodology. She is patient with new starters like my daughter, and corrects the pronunciation.  My 9 year old daughter started with one hour a week online learning with Jane but soon changed to two hours a week. She enjoys learning German with Jane.

Jane has been incredibly helpful in aiding me throughout A level German, enabling me to achieve a grade A despite the downgrading of exams as a result of Covid-19. Not only did Jane help me to achieve a high grade at A level, but she also suggested I should take the Goethe Institute B1 exam since my A level exams had been cancelled. I am so glad Jane encouraged me to do this exam because I not only passed well, but also achieved 100/100 in the speaking, which never would have been possible without her.

Jane is a diligent and thorough language tutor, with a keen eye for detail. She has a gentle but firm approach with students and is able to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Through this understanding she then constructs a way of working which supports the individual needs of the learner, encouraging students to succeed by giving them confidence in their abilities.

Vita, Bramhall

Jane has taught me so well over the last 6 months, I have learnt so much and I would recommend her to anyone who wanted to study Business German with her. Jane uses a very good structure of teaching. It has been invaluable for both my business and pleasure use. She has also given me a lot of confidence in my job as an engineer in Germany. You will not be disappointed in Jane’s understanding and work in teaching the German language.
