German Native Speaker and State-Certified Educator with experience teaches German in Derry

Methodology

Hello everyone!

I am Josy from Berlin, Germany. I am a state-certified educator with not only loads of experience, but a great passion for teaching my first language.
I always enjoyed making progress in English, however I know how hard it can be to learn a foreign language. You will never know everything, but being confident in a foreign language is a great feeling and I love helping students of any age to get there.
I am very interested in languages in general, so I am currently learning Spanish as well.
Apart from languages I love nature, which is one of the reasons why I decided a year ago to move to Derry. So whenever I am done studying for the day, I love going for a hike afterwards. Enjoying fresh air and exercising, clears my head and is therefore a great balance for me to studying and teaching.

From conversational German to studying for examinations my approach will help you develop both your knowledge and passion for the language
So, if you are looking for support in German in a fun, vibrant and professional manner, I would be very happy to hear from you.

Background

During my A-Levels I started giving lessons after school for younger students. Since I enjoyed it so much, I became a teamer in the summers. I provided holidays for children and teenager with the aim of improving their English. I prepared and held classes with native-seakers.
For about a year I am living in Derry and started to give German lessons. I am teaching two students at the mment, one of them had no knowledge in German before, while the other one was already on Level B1.

I have been working with Josy now in a range of environments for almost two years! We met when she was a student here in Foyle International, and now she is a very highly respected colleague, who is just so thorough and diligent about everything she does.
Her charisma shines through when she is negotiating with our international students, and no task is too big for her.
Josy has a clear understanding and passion for language learning, and she is very much focused on communicative methods, giving her students a platform for development and exploration of the language.
Her students' success bring her a lot of joy, and she will guide you to your own personal success in a kind and friendly manner.

Ava

I got in touch with Josephine because I wanted to pick up some German ahead of a trip to Austria, and due to a general interest in the language. She has been an amazing help!! Her lessons are always clear, relevant, and tailored to my needs. She makes them fun and engaging, with a good balance between content and grammar. I also really appreciate her flexibility with lesson times. Overall, Josephine is a wonderful tutor and a genuinely lovely person.

Jason

I think Josephine is a trustworthy tutor because she is able to teach students who are at different levels of German. She also makes the classes fun and she teaches through games and stories which makes the classes fun and makes it enjoyable to learn the language :)
