I have more than twelve thousand hours of experience teaching the English, Hindi and Urdu languages and am always excited to work with new students. When teaching I always strive to be well-prepared, patient and adaptive to each individual's needs and I am comfortable working with students using both communicative as well as more grammar-based teaching methodologies.

In addition to general language teaching, I also specialize in test preparation classes for the TOEFL, IELTS and OPIc English ...
Reviews
Learning requires leaning into the zone of proximal development, which varies from student to student, week by week. Christoph was able to find my edge within our first lesson, and challenged me to map sounds to characters and Urdu concepts to existing language frameworks I've developed. I highly recommend Christoph as an Urdu tutor!

As a parent who had experience with different teachers, I am really impressed that Christoph finds new ways of infusing interest in writing, proposing really fun topics ranging from haiku to writing on a controversial topic to some creative piece. He gently guides and looks for ways to help the child continuously improve. Thank you for being such dedicated teacher!

Christoph is an expert not only in the subject, but in teaching. He tailored his lessons to my goals and provided me with excellent materials, advice and practice for both grammar and conversation topics I was interested in. It was obvious that Christoph loves the Hindi language, and it?s been a pleasure working with him.

Christoph helped me with TOEFL. I was weak in the speaking section. In three classes Christoph helped me become really good with my speaking, I got a 30 in that section.

Christoph is my tutor for the Urdu language. I?ve had A Lot of language instructors over the years, but Christoph is one of the very best. I?m a visual learner, so Christoph?s use of the white board was an enormous aid in my learning. I cannot wait to take more lessons from Christoph! You would be very hard pressed to find a better tutor, so I HIGHLY recommend him!

My 10-year-old daughter and I are learning "mommy's language" (Urdu) together. Thanks to Christoph's expert tutelage, our knowledge and comprehension has gone from close to zero to a solid grasp of the basics in just a few months. I'm sure at this rate, fluency is not far in the future! We have had a LOT of "why?" questions and have yet to stump Christoph! He always has an answer and is great about breaking things down clearly and patiently until they make sense. I can't recommend him highly enough, especially for native English speakers interested in learning Urdu or Hindi from the ground up.

Christoph has shared his valuable knowledge in Hindi with me, which has excelled my skills in reading and writing. He is patient with my pace and gives me assignments to work on for our next session to feel prepared. I have already impressed some native speakers from what I have learned from Christoph within a few sessions!
- Macy B. from Birmingham, AL
Christoph is very thorough with his lessons, he made sure to consult with me along the way to make sure the pace was comfortable yet challenging for me. In just the first lesson he was able to make sense of concepts I was not clear on before. I look forward to working with him more. I also appreciate the detailed notes from the lesson which he sends after class.
- Trisha M. from Easton, PA
He is thorough and works with you for an overall understanding rather than absolute perfection as a beginner. Christoph has a good reference for hindi as well as language and keeps checking to see that you are following.
- Daniel S. from Fort Worth, TX
Christoph helped me with the preparation for IELTS. He is very easy to work with and provides precise feedback. I had all my session with him online, but the sessions well organized and he provided me with a copy of notes after each session. I was able to review the notes of previous classes, which helped me a lot in identifying recurring errors in my writing. He provided handy tips for avoiding common mistakes. I enjoyed working with him and lot and would recommend him for English lessons.

I was given the opportunity to begin learning Hindi as a part of my work. I started with zero experience in Hindi. After looking through many Wyzant tutors, I settled on Christoph. Where do I start? He could not be better. He doesn't move too fast nor too slow, and tailors his tutoring to each learner's needs. He is patient, kind, thorough, and more than qualified. He sends us detailed notes after each lesson and gives us just the right amount of homework. I am progressing rapidly on my Hindi thanks to his expert tutoring. I most highly recommend you try your Hindi lesson with Christoph before any other. He can relate to your learning, start you from square one, and easily take you to proficiency.
- Matthew J. from Goodlettsville, TN
Christoph is an excellent Hindi tutor. Not only is he a lovely guy and very easy to converse with but he is extremely knowledgeable and well organized. He types notes that I can see while the session is in progress, thus I can see the Hindi sentences that I am verbally creating in the lesson. We can then work on the corrections, further meanings and the process of enlarging vocabulary. The notes are then sent to me for review. This is definitely the best language tutorial I have ever had. Christoph's deep grasp of Hindi combined with his effectiveness as a teacher makes him an excellent choice for people wanting either an intro to the language or a deeper exploration.
- Ed R. from Los Angeles, CA
I have been tutored by Christoph in beginner Hindi for a few months, and I cannot speak highly enough of his teaching capabilities. I had been struggling to pick up Hindi for a few years through osmosis and native speakers in my spouse's family, but it was my decision to work with Christoph that finally gave me real progress in speaking and understanding Hindi. He is very adept at presenting material, always providing the correct level of explanation to make sense to a curious but beginning student. He has also consistently customized his lessons to my personal motivation (to be able to converse with family and friends) to learn Hindi into account with his teaching while making sure that I learn the foundational basics of grammar and writing. His Skype lessons are incredibly effective!

Fantastic tutor with excellent background knowledge on language and culture. Chris takes his time to breakdown the sentence and explain the meaning and idioms associated with the language.
- Roger P. from Edmond, OK
During the listening practice he asked me about main ideas or purposes. As a result, I think it also provided me speaking exercise. Very beneficial lecture for me.
