German, London, Oxford University Graduate giving lessons in all aspects of German (Language, Literature, Oral and more!)

Methodology

I've just come out of University and am looking to give German lessons to anyone from GCSE all the way up to Undergraduate level.

I am an enthusiastic teacher that truly cares about my students. My lessons would be absolutely focussed on the student's goals and motivations for learning German and I hope to help them learn and think for themselves rather than purely spoon-feeding information.

I have near-native written and spoken proficiency.
My specialties are Medieval, Early modern, Sturm und Drang, Romantic, and Weimar Classical literature.
I'm also particularly interested by Nietzsche, German film, and Sebald.

Experience

On my year abroad in Freiburg I taught primarily at an international language school (Inlingua).

Whilst there I taught a variety of groups and individuals ranging from executives, interns, small and large business owners, refugees, and other students.

All of my students not only passed their exams but also achieved all of the goals they had set for themselves.
