In-person language lessons with a tutor can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private German tutor in Berlin, online learning may be a good option for you. To take lessons with a German tutor in your area, you may have to pay more to cover their travel costs or travel to their home, and the average cost of private German lessons in Berlin is over $20 per hour. With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top tutors from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a tutor are pleasantly surprised by the experience. At LanguaTalk, lessons are 1-on-1 to ensure you get your tutor's full attention and can make rapid progress. Lessons are conducted via video call, allowing you to communicate with your tutor and share learning materials, as if you were in the same room. Give it a try with a free trial session and see for yourself!
You can watch German tutor intro videos, check their availability, and read reviews from their students on their profiles. You'll also see which learning needs, ages, and levels the tutor is comfortable with.
Are you new to LanguaTalk? When you sign up, you'll get a token for a complimentary 30-minute trial lesson. Use this to meet your chosen tutor and decide whether you want to keep taking classes with them or look for a German tutor in Berlin instead. (Please note: not all tutors offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)

Hello, my name is Nataliia . Teaching German is not only my job, but also my hobby, which makes me a happy person. I will be happy to share this happiness with you during exciting and not at all boring German lessons!
The lessons with me are a complete immersion in the world of the fascinating German language. I only use authentic materials (books from Klett, Hueber, Cornelsen; blogs, music, videos by Germans), lots of interactive exercises, games. Lessons are based on the student's preferences, so I select the material individually, depending on the student's wishes and hobbies. I organize the lessons so that 80% of the lessons are spoken by the student. We have conversations, discuss current problems in the life of Germans and other peoples. Lessons with me is not only learning a foreign language, but also constant self-development, improvement in various areas of knowledge.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
My name is Anna, I'm from Switzerland. I currently live in Ecuador.
After completing my Bachelors degree for teaching in 2015, I started teaching German, but also English and French.
My courses are based on the level, goals and interests of the student. I focus especially on communication. For beginners, we start with structured sentences and everyday topics. I often talk to advanced students about interests and factual topics. I adapt my courses to the student and according to his/her needs we do vocabulary training, grammar exercises, writing or other tasks. That way allows you to advance quickly and improve your language skills remarkably.
I work with various materials, including a teaching aid that I will share with you online for free.
I love to travel and languages are very important to me. Next to my German classes, I teach yoga workshops, love to read and write, make music, go hiking or travel.
Through my education and travel I have learned a variety of languages including English, Spanish and French. So I know that learning a language can be challenging, but it is totally worth it and a lot of fun!
Let’s get started!
I am looking forward to meeting you!
Ich heisse Anna, bin aus der Schweiz. Ich lebe zurzeit in Ecuador. Nach dem Abschluss an der Universität als Lehrperson im Jahr 2015, begann ich Kinder und Erwachsene in Deutsch, Englisch und Französisch zu unterrichten.
Meine Kurse richten sich nach Niveau, den Zielen und den Interessen des Studierenden. Die Kommunikation steht bei mir im Fokus. Bei Anfängern beginnen wir mit strukturierten Sätzen. Mit fortgeschrittenen Studierenden spreche ich oft über Aktuelles, Interessen und Sachthemen. Ich passe meine Kurse den Studierenden an und je nach Bedarf machen wir Wortschatztraining, Grammatikübungen oder andere Aufgaben. So machst du schnell Fortschritte.
Ich arbeite mit verschiedenem Material, darunter mit einem Lehrmittel, das ich dir kostenlos online zur Verfügung stellen kann.
Neben dem Unterrichten gebe ich Yogaworkshops, lese und schreibe gerne, mache Musik, gehe wandern oder reise. Es ist zugleich herausfordernd und schön, eine Sprache zu lernen und es macht viel Spass!
Ich freue mich darauf, dich kennenzulernen!

Willkommen auf meinem Profil. Mein Name ist Maike und ich bin 28 Jahre alt. / Welcome to my profile. My name is Maike, I'm 28 years old. Currently, I live and work in Munich, one of the biggest cities in southern Germany. I grew up in a little village in Baden-Württemberg (south of Germany), did my Bachelor degree in Passau (Bayern), lived in France for a while (Paris and Strasbourg) and in Spain (Valencia) as well, then did my masters degree in Oldenburg (northern Germany). Languages are my passion, as well as travelling, good food and lovely conversations.
As my main job is working in HR, tutoring and teaching German is a side hustle. Initially, I wanted to stop teaching German when I started my first ”real” job.. As it turns out, I really love teaching though and I couldn’t stop doing it, although I have a limited amount of time when I can do it.
But I’ve been teaching for such a long time now, and I’ve enjoyed the experience so much that I cannot imagine my life without it. By now, I have made friends all over the world whilst teaching, and I enjoy the experience so much that I wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.
In my eyes, it is a great honour to be able to teach people about my language and my culture, as German and Germany have so much to offer. It’s an enriching experience to get into an exchange with people from other places and learn about their costumes and their culture too.
You'd like to work on your conversation skills? No problem! As I am a very talkative person, we'll never have the problem of not finding something that we both want to talk about. Such things as grammar are necessary too sometimes - ugh, not cool, I know, right?! - but we'll make it fun and use exercises including things of your everyday life to get the most of it.
Interested in learning German with me? Just book a 30 min trial session, select my calendar and we'll soon meet for the first time and we can continue your journey of progress with this great language!

I am happy you decided to learn German.
With me as your tutor, you will get the support and motivation you need to reach your goals and make the progress you are looking for. My classes are not only educational but fun. I firmly believe that language learning should be motivating to ensure students’ success.
Since earning my Master’s in Teaching German as a Foreign Language, I have been teaching my native language at universities and language schools in Germany and abroad for fifteen years.
My teaching approach is communicative, intercultural and learner-centered. Over the years I have developed my own material which I supplement with current course books, online material and authentic sources like German songs, TV programs/films and literature.
No matter if you are a beginner or an advanced learner, no matter what area you’d like to focus on, be it general German, business German or exam preparation, I am going to tailor the lessons to your individual needs in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
As a polyglot myself, I am familiar with the challenges of learning a new language and I can give you helpful tips along the way.
All you need to bring is the necessary motivation and dedication, and we’re ready to go.
Lass uns Deutsch lernen! (Let’s learn German!)
I hope to see you soon in a trial session.
P.S. I have a Zoom Pro account, so feel free to choose this option when booking a class.See Reviews From Students
my name is Florentin, I've been teaching German for the last 8 years, working both with groups at university and 1-on-1.
Maybe the most important aspect for me is the atmosphere in which you can be at ease and speak freely without any fear of making mistakes. Mistakes are not only a natural part of the process, but have to be made and will help your understanding. Our class is a safe space where you can express yourself exactly as you do now and ask all the questions you may have.
In a session we might do conversational exercise, go over your texts together, listen to music to improve listening comprehension, rehearse an exam, take a clarifying look into any specific topic you feel slightly or heavily confused about, read a book or text of your choice together or do grammar exercises, advance your German from the ground up, play some games to get familiar with this language.
All these activities, that can be fun, can also help us see what is needed for you to advance - in your own way and in your own time.
We can use my materials and you are also welcome to bring whatever you would like to work with.
More about me:
I initially started teaching German after a one-year journey through South America which I undertook after graduating from university. During these travels I learned Spanish and subsequently got the task of offering tuition to students at university who were struggling with reading academic texts in German. Thereafter I started teaching all German levels to different groups at university and also to students individually and have been doing so for over 9 years now, in-person and online. I've also been leading translation groups and lecturing on other language topics like language philosophy.
Living and teaching German in other countries for several years gave me deeper insight both into learning languages and into my own mother tongue and during that time I naturally adopted the role of a bridge between cultures and languages.
I speak English and Spanish fluently and one of these languages could serve as additional support for our work together in case we share it :)See Reviews From Students
I do not only teach languages to earn money, it is my passion to teach, to have conversations with people from various countries, to allow someone to learn a new language, to open doors in this global world.
I am a German native, single mom of 2, with more than 10 years of teaching experience and about 20 years of tutoring experience. I have been teaching online for more than 6 years, but also taught in colleges, language schools and many private settings.
I have lived in the US for 7 years and came back to Germany in 2017. In 2020 I decided to become a full-time online teacher. I teach grammar, vocabulary, prepare you for tests and also for interviews, small talk or travels. I enjoy conversations as much as exam prep.
I would love to teach you soon! Please watch my video and book a trial session with me!See Reviews From Students
My name is Denise and I am a native German speaker. I have taught more than 2,000 classes online with people from all over the world. As a language learner myself (I am learning Spanish), I know how difficult and sometimes frustrating it can be. Are you learning German, but you cannot hold simple conversations? Do you have difficulties understanding native speakers? Start communicating in German, think in German, and feel confident speaking German. Learn grammar, new vocabulary, and typical phrases while you build confidence in speaking.
Learning German with me feels like chatting with a friend. Together we'll train to compare opinions, share experiences, and more by using topics related to you. Talking about your life and interests will make learning fun.
My conversational training concept depends on your level and your language learning goals. As your teacher, I can help you to talk about your daily life, and interests, or express ideas and feelings. Also, I will give you texts or articles to discuss during class. This way, I introduce you to new vocabulary, which we practice immediately. I like to ask tons of questions to give you as much space to talk in German as possible.
I am a marketing professional with experience in the international event industry and product management. I know how it is to work in Germany for German companies. Therefore I look forward to helping you prepare for job interviews, speeches, presentations, organizing meetings, and more. Together, we will boost your communication skills, not only the language.See Reviews From Students
My name is Christine. I’m half German, half Belgian, and I have lived in Mexico for 19 years. I have been a teacher for 16 years and I have taught different subjects and languages, such as English, German, Spanish, world history, and geography. My teaching approach depends on the student's level and interests. That being said, I believe that conversation is an important part of learning a language, and so I often focus on conversation or question-answer sessions in my classes. I love teaching and I always aim to make classes interesting.
I currently use the Netzwerk textbook and workbook by Klett (for A1 level), but I am open to working with other books as well. At the moment I am awaiting new books for other levels.
My Spanish level is excellent. I speak Latin American Spanish, but I know the grammar for Spanish from both Spain and Latin America.
Hope to meet you soon!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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).
