German Teacher

Hi, my name is Lukas!

I'm a German teacher and a native German speaker. I've been teaching German at all levels for more than 4 years to college students, business people, famous singers, and Oscar-winning actors at the top rated language school in Los Angeles.

I'm a native German speaker, originally from Zürich. I grew up bilingual and was immersed in the English language at an early age. I've lived in the United States since 2009.
