Learning a language face-to-face with a tutor can be a fantastic experience. But if you're unable to find an affordable private German tutor in Berlin, you may want to consider learning online. To learn with a German tutor near you in Berlin, you'll have to either travel to the tutor's home, or pay more to cover their travel time; the average cost of receiving private German lessons in Berlin is over $20 per hour. Not only does learning online save travel costs, but you gain access to the best tutors from all over the world.
Whilst students sometimes prefer learning in person, the vast majority of students report being pleasantly surprised by the experience of learning with a tutor online. On LanguaTalk, lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can progress quickly. Lessons are taught via video call, allowing you to communicate with your tutor and share learning materials. You'll feel like you're in the same room with your tutor. Book a trial session and see if you agree!
Below you can watch German tutor's intro videos, check their availability and read reviews from their students. When you open a profile, you'll also see which learning needs, ages and levels the tutor is comfortable with.
New to LanguaTalk? When you create an account, you'll be given a token for a free, 30-minute trial session.

(Please note: not all tutors offer a trial session for free - some charge 30% of their standard full lesson price.)
I have 8 years experience of language teaching, as a selfemployed private teacher for one-on-one classes. My classes are well structured, according to your needs. We work with science based teaching material that helps you to develop your German skills in a progressive way. We practice reading, writing, listening and of course speaking with a wide array of exercises. I consider grammar as an important part of language learning, but only to help you to develop your communicative abilities. I provide homework after each class to help you deepen and revise the new content.
Hey my name is David from Germany, currently living in Peru and i would love to help you learning german :)
The most important is to have fun and feel comfortable in the lesson, in the first lesson we going to get to know each other and then set your goals, personalize the classes to your needs and learning rhythm.
It doesn't matter if you just started or already got the basics, if you want to improve your conversation skills or you need help with a special topic. My goal is that you get to understand the German language and will be able to speak it properly in everyday life.
I have been teaching German online for all ages, from beginner to advanced, for 2 1/2 years now.
It will be a pleasure to meet you.See Reviews From Students
I have taught all levels at our national university language lab and privately. Also, I prepare for international examinations: *Goethe A1-A2-B1-B2-C1-C2, *TELC, *DSH, *Occupation Medicine B2-C1, *Workplace/occupation A2-B1, *Children A1-A2.
These are communicative, state-of-the-art and highly efficient classes that comprehensively integrate the four learning abilities of listening and reading comprehension, oral and written expression, but without compromising on the required grammar. That's because I have all the suitable tools at our disposal. In addition to the class and workbooks, we use an interactive PDF-whiteboard. We have numerous audio and video tracks, as well as other very efficient interactive tools. Levels range from beginner to advanced, from A1 to C2.
My approach is systematic but flexible, fully adapting to the learning pace of each student, so that they feel comfortable. And of course, I also try to make the class enjoyable and entertaining without leaving the academic objectives aside. In this sense, I know that most of you will need an international diploma at some point, and the methods I use are also aimed at this objective, as well as preparing you for colloquial communication in a new cultural environment. Every language is also a new culture, a new world.
I am looking forward to meeting you and showing you this new world in German. See you soon at the trial lesson. Bye!

Hello! My name is Hilda.
I was born in Germany and I have traveled all over the world. Now I invite you to travel with me into the German language.
As a foreign language correspondent, I also have the language mentor certificate, and studied to teach German (DaF teacher) at the Goethe Institute in Munich.
I have been teaching German to people of all ages and all levels for more than 20 years from A0 to C2.
Learning a language is speaking a language. So we're going to have a lot of conversation.
You may start as a beginner. You may want to deepen your vocabulary or grammar, or you may want pure conversation.
Maybe you have an exam coming up, or you need German for your job or for a meeting. Perhaps you want to immigrate.
I am very committed to making your personal wish come true.
- We use a wide variety of materials, such as picture cards, books (e.g. "Menschen" Hueber Verlag), audios, videos, role plays, and worksheets.
- You get your own presentation (My German Course) on Google Slides, your own access to Google Docs, as well an access to an interactive software.
- I always integrate listening, speaking, writing and reading into the lessons. In addition to my mother tongue German, I speak English (C1) and Spanish (B1).
I look forward to a first trial lesson with you.
See you soon,See Reviews From Students

Your German lessons will be tailored to your specific needs by an experienced, native German teacher.
I studied German language and literature, music education and musicology in Germany. Over the years, I have worked for a variety of educational institutions as a teacher. Also, I have completed a multi-level continuing education program at the Goethe-Institut and work there as a teacher trainer.
Having specialized in online teaching of German as a foreign language for the last few years, I teach students worldwide. I also have extensive experience in exam preparation and will be happy to help you if you want to take a German exam.
What are your learning objectives? What do you want to focus on in class? How will the lessons work? Book a free trial lesson with me to clarify important questions!
I look forward to accompanying you on your personal learning journey!See Reviews From Students
Hallo! My name is Eda, I am half German and half Turkish. Currently learning my fifth language, I know exactly how hard it can be to find motivation while studying a language.
If you are someone who likes to learn by actively training their reading, speaking, listening, and writing abilities, wants to study grammar through games and quizzes, and prefers fun activities over passive, standard classes, I am here to help!
I have been teaching German ever since I was in high school when I taught German to exchange students. During university, I started teaching group classes to children and teenagers as well as translating and interpreting for the German consulate in Turkey. After graduating from university, I started teaching full-time as an online teacher on different platforms. During my career as a teacher, I gathered experience teaching young children, adults as well as elderlies, one-on-one classes as well as groups.
I would love to meet you soon, feel free to book a trial lesson!
Tschüss!See Reviews From Students
Hello my name is Maria, I’m from Germany and currently I live in Bolivia.
I myself was raised multilingual and I live in a foreign country. So, I know how hard and sometimes even frustrating it can be to learn a language. That’s why I would like to help you. If you are a beginner its best to start with some structure. So, vocabulary, grammar and the structure of a sentence in general. If you are already advanced, we can concentrate on pronunciation and conversation. Of course, always in connection with listening, reading and writing.
I already helped some students to prepare for their Goethe and Telc Test in the Levels A1 to C1.See Reviews From Students
Hello, I am Jan from Germany and I would like to help you learn German and improve your German. I offer lessons for all levels and prepare you for exams or job interviews, for example. I can support you in writing applications or other texts in German. Furthermore, I can also help you to speak German as an everyday language.
I have been tutoring foreign languages such as French and Spanish at a tutoring institute for over a year.
I work with the immersive learning method. This means that I speak with you mostly in German during class and only in exceptional cases in another language. In this way, new words and phrases can be learned subconsciously while you get used to speaking in the foreign language. No worries, I explain the grammar as easily and understandably as possible.
As teaching materials, I use, for example, song lyrics and texts from media on topics that interest you.
I currently live in Austria, in Innsbruck. There I study translation of French, Spanish, and German. I am very interested in languages, traveling, politics and photography.
I'm really looking forward to meeting you in a trial session. Bis bald! See you!See Reviews From Students
Hi! I am Larissa, I am originally from Frankfurt, Germany. Since 2019, I've been teaching German as a foreign language via video chat and in face-to-face sessions. My students come from all over the world, from various age groups and have different skill levels. Depending on your skill level and requirements, we might start at the very beginning, dig into some grammar, do listening, reading and/or conversational exercises. I can also help you with different exam preparations or getting you ready to travel/move to a German speaking country. I like to work with free online sources, but am also happy to work with any material that my students bring to class. It is important to me to create a friendly and judge free atmosphere for my students where they feel comfortable just speaking and asking questions.
I am very passionate about traveling, exploring other countries and learning languages. Teaching is a great way for me to meet people from all over the world and learning about their cultures as well. Currently I am located in Costa Rica and learning Spanish.
Hi, I'm Your new German teacher. Born and raised in Switzerland but now living in Peru. I'm an artist, graphic designer and much more. I speak fluent English, Spanish and good French. I love to teach online because it allows me both to get to know new people from all over the world but also to take good care of my family. I always try to improve my teaching methods and to help my students find the best materials for them to keep studying for themselves. Besides teaching grammar and vocabulary I also like to use videos, audio-recordings, and a virtual whiteboard. You'll not only learn the language but also some cultural aspects. And last but not least you'll enjoy spending your time having some fun! See You soon in my class ;)See Reviews From Students
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person lessons in Berlin, but most only offer online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in Berlin because they are living elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that the lesson will be conducted online.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private German lessons in Berlin is between $25-$35. Since online tutors don't have to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, their hourly rate tends to be significantly lower.
Some students might be unsure about learning German online because they think it will be very different from in-person learning. However, many students find that the online experience is similar and they often develop strong relationships with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your selected tutor, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor may also share learning resources with you (such as newspaper articles or YouTube videos) and you'll be able to collaborate in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
If you prefer in-person lessons over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a tutor on a local service listing website or place an advertisement in your area. However, we do encourage you to try online learning – you have nothing to lose by booking a free trial session. Many students find that the online experience is just as good as in-person learning, with the added benefit of access to higher quality tutors at a lower cost.
LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 German lessons with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:
1 - Find a tutor that meets your needs by reviewing their videos, reviews, pricing, and availability.
2 - Book a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a free 30-minute trial, while others offer a discounted trial price.
3 - Have personalized lessons with your chosen tutor via video call. Or try a different tutor if desired.
You don't need to provide credit card information to book a free trial session. Please only book a trial if you're seriously considering taking lessons. Tutor prices vary, and you can use the filter to find one that fits your budget. You can pay for individual lessons or purchase a package for a discount (view a tutor's pricing options on their profile).
We're confident you'll enjoy learning on LanguaTalk. Our platform is trusted by students worldwide because of our transparency. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display these ratings on tutor profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. This is because we only accept the top 10% of tutor applications, unlike other platforms.
To access our full list of FAQs or get assistance from our friendly team, click the 'Help' button in the bottom-right. You can also watch students sharing their experiences learning on LanguaTalk below.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If a tutor does not offer a free trial, the trial price will be 30 percent of their full lesson price, allowing you to still try a session at a reduced cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to determine if the tutor is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any lessons you choose to take. You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in German, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
One of the benefits of online lessons is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some tutors may have limited availability due to high demand.
Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the lessons, your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods and resources, including language exercises, conversation practice, and cultural notes, to help you reach your learning objectives.
All lessons take place via video call. Your tutor will normally give you a choice of calling tools, all of which are easy to use.
Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this option is available, it will be noted on the tutor's profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, 55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. 30-minute lessons may be suitable if you're taking lessons for your child or if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
