About us

German Tuition was founded in 1995 by Barbara Classen. Since then, we have grown into a team of nine professional native German tutors. Some of us have a business background in Germany and Britain as well as extensive teaching experience.

Our approach is to provide German language training that is highly professional and efficient as well as lively and enjoyable. We enjoy teaching Business German in the City at our doorstep and the Greater London area as much as working with private individuals who learn German for an eclectic mix of reasons. To provide a tailormade German language training that works best for you and/or your company is our mission.
