"Having lived in Hong Kong since 1985, Mrs Rommel has unparallelled experience and fully understood the linguistic challenges my children faced when switching from local school to GSIS this year. They found it very difficult to pronounce German and understand its complex grammar, which is so different to Chinese and even English. We are most grateful to Mrs Rommel for being a patient and resourceful tutor. She used a range of unusual methods to help them understand and memorise the grammar and to overcome their struggles with the pronunciation in a very short time."

"Birgit is an exceptionally good German tutor who really takes the time to analyse and progress each student’s needs. She is also extremely efficient and flexible which allows her to offer all ability levels from beginners up to undergraduate level. Her lessons are also fun too - Great at boosting confidence for stressed teenagers."

"Without any hesitation we will definitely highly recommend Birgit to anyone who is looking for a German Tutor.
Our son's German has improved tremendously since and he has always enjoyed coming to her. We have been so lucky and we would like to share this with others too.
Good tutors are hard to find."
(S.C. mother of a GSIS, Winchester, now Cambridge student)
"Birgit is a very experienced IB tutor and we were lucky she could take on both my daughter in 2010 and my son in 2011. Both achieved a fantastic score in their German IBs as a result. Birgit made it possible for them to enjoy lessons despite the high demands and to eventually develop a deep love for this difficult language. Birgit's experience, dedication and professionalism is unparallelled and has surpassed all expectations."
(L.S. mother of KGV, now Cambridge
resp. Newcastle students)
"Thank you to the lovely Birgit for all your help!
Unfortunately I only had 5 hours of lessons with Birgit whilst in Hong Kong for 1 week, but her help has made a world of a difference to my understanding of grammar rules and sentence structure.
I would highly, highly recommend Birgit as a german tutor in Hong Kong!"
