Learn German fast with a German lessons specialist
Olesen Tuition offers bespoke German lessons in London and online for all levels and ages. Whether you are an absolute beginner, speaking at an intermediate level or even working towards fluency, you will find the right kind of support here to learn German properly. The demand for German tuition in London has grown rapidly in the last ten years, however high quality teaching and experienced native tutors are still difficult to find. I founded Olesen Tuition in 2015 with the aim to provide well structured and professional German lessons and I have developed lesson plans and teaching material focused on the fundamentals of German grammar, which are the key to mastering the language. To meet the demand for German lessons taught by experienced native tutors, I hired a team of excellent teachers, many of whom also work for the Goethe-Institut in London where they teach much larger group classes. Working mostly with our own material, our German lessons are tailored to our students' learning objectives and with their progress in mind. We offer German lessons that combine conversational German, listening exercises, reading and writing assignments with well-balanced grammar training, so that our students learn German fast.

Client reviews of our German lessons
The most important indicator of our success is the feedback we receive from our clients. We are very grateful for all the excellent reviews we have received on Google and Trustpilot. You will find some of their comments below.
Erik K., Professor
Jens Olesen is the best teacher with whom I have ever studied. A man of tremendous sensitivity and compassion, he really understands not only the linguistic needs of his students, but the emotional requirements as well. He works wonders to help students overcome the anxieties of approaching a challenging language for the first time. He is highly professional, dedicated, reliable, and he has a great sense of humour to boot. I would recommend him without any reservations whatsoever.
Gerad K., Acupuncturist
Jens is a great teacher. He knows how to keep the session friendly and open while simultaneously keeping the teaching on track. This way it never feels boring or difficult. The grammar that can normally feel difficult and clunky seems to slip in without effort making the session feel fun and light rather than a heavy, back breaking lesson.
Lars S.,Travel Industry
I couldn’t recommend Jens highly enough. He combines a serious and professional approach with a charming and amusing personality making (re)learning German a real pleasure. I had been unhappy with my Goethe group course and was about to give up; having discovered Jens I’m really pleased I didn’t!
On our German language blog "Auf Deutsch, bitte!", you find posts on German grammar- ranging from adjective ending rules in German, the German cases, prepositions in German to German word order. We also have articles on the most common words and phrases in German, a comparison between online dictionaries like Linguee, dict.cc, dict.leo and Collins, and a review of the apps Duolingo, Memrise, Babbel, Busuu, and Quizlet. Since grammar terminology can be quite complex, I have also compiled an A-Z guide to grammar terms. So check out our blog.
