Hallo, my name is Cyril and I'm from Zurich, the cultural center of
Switzerland. Before coming to America and receiving and MFA in fine
arts I tutored German at different stages of my studies.
I have a strong and varied interest in Germanic literature; among my
favorite authors are Jean paul Richter, (of whom Goethe said that his
writing made his head hurt),
Heinrich von Kleist, who wrote the short story with the longest
introductory sentence, E.T.A Hoffmann, Friedrich Glauser, Robert
Walser, Franz Kafka, Thomas Bernhard and many others.
I believe in teaching German by using individual students fields
of interest and adapting to every specific need.
Video & Sample Lectures:
Cyril is a very approachable instructor, but he knows grammar very well (which is especially important for English-speakers learning German, and not true of most native German speakers).
