German lessons taught by native speaker in Cardiff

Methodology

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.

Which ages and levels do you teach?

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.

Please make sure to check your spam folder when contacting me via Superprof Messages can get easily lost in there. And I always answer people's messages (unless they are spammy). You can find more information and student testimonials at (concealed information)

Experience

What kind of experience do you have?

I am a German native speaker and have plenty of language learning experience to draw from as well as the PTLLS qualification. I have been giving German tuition since 2013.

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a Basic Disclosure

Where and with whom did you train?

The WEA – Workers' Educational Association South Wales.

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.

A year ago my son Sam was really struggling with his German GCSE and was failing his oral assessments. With Helen's help his grades have improved remarkably and he managed an 'A' for his final GCSE assessment. He has really enjoyed his lessons with Helen, his confidence has flourished and we are now hopeful that he will get a good grade for his GCSE in a few weeks time. I would highly recommend Helen to anyone looking for extra tuition and support for their German exams.
