Goethe-Zertifikat B2 - Mock Exam, Oral and Writing

I highly recommend Ulrike to anyone who has concerns about taking a Goethe exam.  Ulrike is an examiner for the Goethe exams so she speaks with authority about what is expected for each level of the test (A1, A2, B1, B2, etc.). She is as warm in person as in her videos and very easy to work with.  She gave me very strong tips about what I need to do and shouldn't do on the Mündliche Teil (speaking section) and also reviewed grammar issues.  She also reviewed an essay I wrote for the Schreiben Teil (writing section).  Instead of just correcting my errors, she would prompt me with questions - What preposition should go here? Where should the verb be, given the "dass"?  It took longer of course, but this method activated my brain, rather than my passively reviewing her edits. I also found her rates reasonable; some German schools charge up to twice what Ulrike does for personal tutoring.
