Guten Morgen! My name is Alan. I grew up in Northern Germany in a small town called Verden, approx. 40km outside of Bremen, the city known for Becks beer and Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten. In Verden I attended elementary school and high school. At age 19 I moved to Toronto, Canada to complete my BFA in film at York University. In 2003 I moved to Los Angeles where Ive since been working as a composer, guitar teacher and German tutor. From my teenage years on Ive been very active in the music scene. I have toured all over the world under my artist name 'Spookey Ruben'. One of my songs is the theme melody of a famous German TV talkshow called Zimmer Frei. I travel to Germany at least once a year, keen to stay in touch with current trends and German pop culture.
As a teacher I am committed to reaching each individual's goals and needs by creating and implementing a flexible personalized study program. So whether you want to elevate the German you already know or just learn enough for your upcoming trip to Berlin. Well make it happen! Tschuess, bis zum naechsten Mal!
