Learn German in London and Online with an Experienced Native Tutor 

Olesen Tuition offers bespoke German language lessons and German group classes (2-5 students) for beginners, intermediate and advanced learners, taught by an Oxford-educated tutor with over 20 years of experience. Whether you know only a few words of German or you can already hold a conversation in the language, my German lessons will help you improve your German and give you the confidence to use it wherever possible. Having worked as a private tutor and university teacher for many years, I founded Olesen Tuition in 2015 to offer tailored German language instruction to students of all ages and levels.

Jens Olesen - German language tutor in London

My name is Jens Olesen. Before I founded Olesen Tuition in 2015 I worked as a private German tutor for over 20 years and taught at the University of Oxford, the LSE and RWTH Aachen for 6 years. In my teaching career, I have brought thousands of students to fluency in the German language by tailoring my lessons to their needs and through thorough grammar training.

One-to-one German tutoring in London

Private German lessons are ideal for quick progress in the language, as the focus of the lessons is entirely on you and your individual needs. Working with my own material, my private tuition is tailored to your interests and with your progress in mind. My aim is to offer lessons that merge speaking practice, listening exercises, reading and writing tasks with well-balanced grammar training.

Small-group lessons are an affordable way to learn the language in a class with 2-5 motivated students. The weekly lessons offer the advantage that you learn from your fellow students as well as from me in a relaxed learning environment. New classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced students start regularly, so why don't you sign up for one today and learn German with me.

There has been a huge demand for German language lessons in London over the past 10 years, yet quality teaching by native tutors is still in shortly supply. Founded and run by a native German tutor, Olesen Tuition offers well structured lessons for everyone who wants to pick up the German language, whether you are looking for one-on-one lessons or small group classes. On Google My Business, Trustpilot and many other websites we are rated as one of the best providers of German lessons in London. 

Jens is a hard working and highly skilled tutor. I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone that wanted to learn German. I needed to significantly improve my German to pass an exam to go to Business school and only had two months to get ready. I actually ended up overachieving in the exam. Jens quickly developed a personalised curriculum for me and we both worked very hard for weeks to improve my German. Jens was clearly very invested in my progress and put a lot of thought into exactly where I needed to focus my attention. His support and encouragement made me look forward to each lesson and I was even excited to see what he thought of the written essays I completed between lessons. Thanks, Jens!

Learning German with Jens was a fantastic experience all around. He is an outstanding German tutor who really goes above and beyond for his students and answers all your questions, however stupid they are. His grammar training is so thorough and his approach so motivating that I'm now fluent in the language. Trust me, this is Jens' achievement as much as mine.

Jens is a brilliant teacher. I've had a great, professional experience so far - and his flexibility has been appreciated with organising lessons around work. My German has improved tremendously and I'd recommend him to anyone looking to take their knowledge of the language to the next level.

Jens provides lessons that work around my schedule, and tailors each session to help me read, write and speak German in fun, memorable ways. It's amazing to look back and see how much I have improved. I would happily recommend him to friends.

When I met Jens I had almost no knowledge of German language, a year later I can speak and understand enough to feel empowered and excited! Expect über-professional attitude but some humour as well!

Jens Olesen's style of teaching is a perfect fit for I believe, most students. His passion for academic subjects and his warm sense of humor make for both productive and enjoyable lessons. Jens' talent is in his ability to analyse very quickly what methods and techniques would be best for his student's learning, which is why he is such a popular and favored tutor!
