Individualized & Small Group Instruction
At the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta we strive design curriculum that best fits the needs of our diverse learners. We offer students the opportunity of individualized instruction with our dedicated instructors to better accommodate learning styles, pace, and interests.
Individual and Small Group Instruction times are flexible. Our instructors are general availability Monday through Saturday from mornings through evenings.
The main benefits of one-on-one instruction are:
you can conveniently set your own schedule (frequency/intensity)
you will progress at your own pace
your instructor can adjust course content according to specific needs and interests
Individual instruction allows us to tailor the material and approach specifically for a student's needs, including level, goals, and learning styles. We can also accommodate multiple students of similar ages and levels as small group instruction (2-3 students).
Small group instruction is ideal for siblings, parents, and children or spouses with similar knowledge levels to advance their German language skills. We limit these sessions to a maximum of three pupils working with one of our instructors.
Setting up Individual/Small Group Instruction
- By default, we hold classes at the Goethe-Zentrum, conveniently located in Midtown Atlanta. Classes can be held at a different location or through online distance learning, but only after consultation with our Language Program Director.
- Once we have worked with you to determine your proficiency level and goals, as well as intensity and frequency of classes has been determined, the Goethe-Zentrum will assign an instructor who will contact you to schedule your first session.
- We ask that in case of cancellation of any scheduled session, a minimum of 24-hours notice be given; last-minute cancellations may incur a fee of up to one hour (60 minutes) of instruction.
- For an ongoing program, participants are asked to pre-pay for classes in increments of at least 10 contact hours, unless a lower total number of hours is requested beforehand. Once the pre-paid hours are depleted, we will contact you to renew.
- $55.00 per 60 minutes of instruction for members of the Goethe-Zentrum (1-on-1); $75.00 for non-members
- $80.00 per 60 minutes of instruction for members of the Goethe-Zentrum (2-on-1); $100.00 for non-members
For a personalized consultation, or if you would like to purchase a smaller amount of hours of individual instruction, please contact our Language Program Director at (404) 892-2388 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: We require that both the instructor and the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta be informed of all cancellations or changes to any scheduled session a minimum of 24 hours before the time of the session. In case of last-minute cancellations and/or changes with notice of less than 24 hours, we reserve the right to charge to your account up to one hour (60 minutes) of instruction for cases in which your instructor is unduly inconvenienced, such as for having already traveled to the class location or for not being able to teach another class and thereby suffering reduced income.
