I am a friendly German language tutor in Cardiff offering tuition via skype for adult and face-to-face tuition to pupils working towards their GCSE and A-Level exams.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have an MA in English, Art History and Philosophy and the PTLLS teaching certificate.
How much do you charge?
£30 per lesson - if you recommend me you get 50% off your next lesson.
I charge £6 to cover travel costs if I come to the student's home (10miles within Cardiff). I don't offer free lessons.
Where do you teach?
Mostly from my home in Cardiff. I can travel to students' homes within the Cardiff area. I also teach adults via skype.
When are you available?
After school hours when pupils might need tuition or during the day for adults.
I tend to fit lessons around the student – though I don't teach on Sundays.

I teach adults with no, little or a lot of experience via Skype and face-to-face
I also teach pupils who are working towards their GCSE and A-Level exams.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
GCSEs and A-Levels. Higher Education.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I teach adults via Skype and email support. Before the start of the first lesson I send out a little questionnaire to find out about the language experience the student has. Payment can be made with Paypal or by BACS before to each lesson or in case of students I am seeing face-to-face in cash.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning a foreign language should be fun and useful. And the easiest way to learn is to combine it with something that interests you. So when you book a lesson with me I want to know about your personal interests so I can incorporate these into our lessons.

I was taught by Helen for a few months before my A level exams and found her teaching really helpful, especially with my grammar. It was also really useful to be able to speak with a native German speaker, and I think this improved my speaking skills and vocab a lot. In the end I got an A* in my A level, which Helen's teaching definitely contributed to. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to improve their German!
I would definitely recommend Helen to anyone who needs help or is looking to improve their understanding of the language and speaking skills in German. Helen is a lovely person and i am really glad to have her as my tutor :)
Being tutored by Helen is very helpful to me especially as my school does not offer German as a GCSE. I learn a lot of German in each lesson and the lessons are great because I can practice my German skills with a native German speaker. I find the lessons with Helen extremely helpful and she is a wonderful tutor who will make the effort to help improve your knowledge of the language.
