How does private lessons work

If you want to take private lessons, send us an e-mail. Please provide us with the following information so that we can forward your request to the right language teacher:

  • Which language do you want to learn?
  • What language level do you have and what level would you like to reach?
  • Would you like to delve into certain topics/areas in particular (e.g. conversation, writing, grammar)?
  • How many lessons would you like to take? How long should each appointment be? When and how often per week should the lessons ideally take place?
  • Where would you like the private lessons to take place (at your home, in a café, online)?

After one to two weeks, a language teacher will contact you and you can discuss all further details.

Important information!

  • You come to a (verbal or written) agreement for private lessons directly with the teacher and not with SKB.
  • Private lessons cannot take place in the classrooms of the TU! You will not get a TU certificate!
  • Private lessonscan be offered to students from all over the world, employees of Berlin's universities and members of the TU Alumni Programs.
  • You negotiate all conditions (dates, learning goals, price, material, etc.) with your teacher individually.
  • Be sure to discuss until when you or your teacher can cancel an appointment.
  • Make sure to clarify before whether there are any additional costs for travel time and/or materials besides the cost per appointment.

The following points are approximate guidelines (but you can agree on different rules with the teacher):


  • Price per lesson unit (45 minutes): 25-35€ or 20€ per person in a group of two
  • minimum number of lesson units: 6
  • Private lessons for two are only possible if both people have approximately the same language level and would like to focus on the same topics/areas.
