German student at the University of Warwick, offering German lessons for GCSE and A Level students

Methodology

I believe the most important subjects to teach a German student are grammatical constructs. Vocabulary can be learnt from a list but grammar must be taught. Understanding English grammar at first is also extremely beneficial when learning a foreign language. I focus each of my lessons around one grammatical structure and explain how this works in the German using examples, and practising it in written and spoken German. Understanding cases, tenses and verb conjugations are crucial to improving skill.

Experience

I am entering my final year at Warwick University (German and Business Studies) and having learnt German as a foreign language from scratch I am able to explain learning techniques and grammar from the perspective of someone who has been through the process. I spent my year abroad in Munich working for BMW as an intern where I worked full time in German. I have tutored in my secondary school and have a good knowledge of what exam boards expect from students.
