“I’m enthusiastic about my German language program with Anna Katrina Davey! She is a wonderful and engaging teacher, and the lessons are tailored to my interests, goals and schedule!”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the intensive German language program with Anna Katrina which was delivered professionally, flexible with my schedule and customized to my needs.
Furthermore, the cultural orientation provided me with a much better idea about what to expect once I moved to Germany as well as with confidence when working in my new environment.”

“There are teachers who simply instruct and then there are those you look forward to seeing every lesson because you not only learn, but also practice and converse with them as well as share the positive energy that comes with bettering oneself.
I have been studying German with Anna Katrina Davey for several months and she has made learning a new and difficult language a wonderful experience. With a positive attitude and an encouraging teaching style, Anna Katrina makes time fly even while studying tedious grammatical nuances and sentence structures. You can tell she truly loves the language and culture of the country you are about to visit, which translates into an enriching learning experience.
My lessons focus on language skills, but as a cross-cultural expert, Anna Katrina has also educated me on the country I am moving to. I will not only arrive in Germany with an ability to speak the language, but also with an understanding of the people, customs, popular hobbies and idiosyncrasies that are unique to the country.
I highly recommend her as an educator for anybody who is ready to learn a new language and more about the world, whether for professional or personal reasons.

“Anna Katrina was hired by Rotary District 5870 to teach our Group Study Exchange team Italian and to provide us with a cultural orientation of Northeast Italy.
I would recommend Anna Katrina to anyone or company who is in need of language training and cultural coaching.”
Team Leader, Rotary District 5870
“I have attempted to learn German at various times in my life with very little success. Boredom, scheduling issues, and finally the resignation that ‘I just wasn’t good at languages’ kept me from getting very far. In traditional classes if you don’t understand a concept, the class keeps moving on – leaving you frustrated and discouraged. On the other hand, time is often taken up with things you already understand.
I LOVE my classes with Anna Katrina! I can honestly say that so far I’ve learned more with her than through all other attempts combined. Anna Katrina is very good at seeing where you’re having problems, taking a step back and going over it until you’re confident again. There is simply no substitute to a class geared toward YOU – your strengths, your learning style, your goals, and your time limitations.
The most important aspect for me is that Anna Katrina keeps her classes fun and engaging – I actually look forward to our sessions rather than seeing them as a means to an end. For the first time, I believe I’m making real progress toward being a fluent German speaker!”
“Anna Katrina is the best! You start speaking Italian from the very first class. She has the skills and talent to immerse you in the language and culture from day one.”
