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 Zurich, 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 Zurich 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 Zurich instead. (Please note: not all tutors offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)
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!

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.

I am an experienced German tutor teaching students (individuals and groups) at all levels and all ages.
I am a native German speaker and have lived in the UK for over 25 years.
Learning a language should be fun and the German you learn should suit the environment you want to use it in. Whether you want to learn German to pass important exams at school, have business contacts abroad, your spouse is German, you are going away on holiday in Germany, or you just want to keep up your language skills - please get in touch and we can work out a lesson plan and pace which suits you.
I have worked as a German tutor since 2003 and have also been a learning support assistant at a local school. I have experience working with students with learning difficulties and disabilities.See Reviews From Students
Hallo! My name is Nina, I grew up in Berlin, Germany, but I´ve lived in the most northern German federal state for ten years now.
I´ve studied Linguistics and German/German as a foreign language and I have 6 years of teaching experience from A0-C1 level. I´ve been teaching German for a few years at a school (A1-B1) and at a University of Applied Science (Fachhochschule- Studienkolleg, B2-C1) and I teach German online since July 2021 and focus on the BEGINNER-levels up to B1. As you can see in my video, I can speak slowly and clearly for beginners. Due to my linguistic studies I can also help you with pronunciation and have many tips and exercises to help you improve your pronunciation.
I am well organized and have a lot of material at my disposal, also for self-learning if desired. In addition, I supplement the lessons with exercises in which you are active and I also like to focus on pronunciation. We will set your goals at the beginning and we will work at your pace. In my lessons, you will learn to communicate in everyday situations. Of course you will also learn to read, write & understand German.
For me it is very important to create a pleasant atmosphere and to teach German with fun!
A little bit about myself: I´m very interested in languages, at the moment I`m learning Arabic, so I know what it is like to learn a new language. In my free-time, I like to be outdoors (ride my bike, hiking) but also inside (pet my cat Milou or be creative- painting, upcycling,...)
I love the German language and helping people to learn my mother tongue,
Looking forward to meeting you!

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.
Do you want to travel to Germany or communicate in everyday life?
Do you need a language certificate or do you maybe want to apply for a job?
I can offer you help with:
I'm an experienced German teacher from Berlin who speaks German, English and Spanish fluently.
My first teaching experience was in Perú, where I started to teach German as a foreign language to children in a social project.
I have 6 years of experience teaching German to students of different ages and levels from all over the world.
Hope to see you soon!

Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, we recommend 55-minute lessons for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute lessons only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.
On LanguaTalk, you can find highly qualified tutors who offer personalized 1-on-1 German lessons based on your goals and learning style. Here's how it works:

Trial lessons are 30 minutes long. They allow you to evaluate whether the tutor is a good fit for you and experience learning online. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so they can customize any lessons you decide to take. You will be encouraged to speak in German as much as possible, but you can also speak in English if needed.

Our research indicates that the average cost for private German lessons in Zurich is between $25-$35 per hour. Online tutors do not need to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, so the hourly cost is generally lower.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning German online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may offer local lessons, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many tutors do not teach German in Zurich as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that it will be online unless the tutor specifically states that they offer in-person lessons in Zurich.
There are several options for learning German in Zurich, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar. You can also join group lessons with German tutors in Zurich if you prefer a social learning experience. Alternatively, you can take one-on-one lessons with a private tutor, which is more expensive but may be the most effective option if you have a good tutor. Learning online may make private tutors a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the tutor, but are generally cheaper than in-person lessons in Zurich.
If you prefer not to learn online with tutor, LanguaTalk may not be the right choice for you. Instead, you can search for tutor, we recommend giving online learning a try as it is often as good as in-person learning and allows you to access better tutors at a lower cost. You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
