- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
The online lesson works via Skype or FaceTime. In addition to that we have a shared document, on which both of us will write notes, which will be sent to you after the lesson. We will also do listening exercises and some grammar games.
During the first lesson we will have an additional 20min at the beginning, so we have more time to get to know each other and try out the online tools.

Since 2011 I have been teaching group courses at the Goethe Institute in London and tutoring hundreds of private students. The students I tutored for their GCSE, IGCSE, A-Level, Pre-U and IB exams passed their exams with excellent results.
As a qualified examiner I am able to perform A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 exams at the Goethe Institut and I know how to prepare for them.

Katja tutored 2 of my children for their GCSE exams and both of them got an A*. Clara said the lessons were efficient and focused on the key points for the exam. Alexander enjoyed the use of fun and interactive activities to revise and practice his speaking skills. I would highly recommend (and already have) Katja to anyone who is looking for a German tutor. In addition to being very experienced, she is very professional, conscientious, reliable, and makes the most out of every lesson.
I contacted Katja because to progress to more advanced German for my Pre-U. The lessons are both efficient and fun, as any weak spots in understanding are targeted and sorted out straight away. I most enjoyed being able to move from different styles of exercise throughout the sessions, meaning that I never got bored and the time passed quickly. My confidence in German has increased massively and I would definitely recommend Katja!
We met Katja over 2 years ago when my son, Matthew, needed help with conversational German during his GSCE years. He worked with Katja on a weekly basis for four terms in two blocks working on all areas of the curriculum but particularly, speaking and listening. Matthew says, â€œIf it hadn't been for Katja I wouldn't have got an A!” Matthew enjoyed his sessions with Katja and I can highly recommend her.
Katja is an outstanding German teacher. I have been working online with her for several years now and can not find words to express how pleased I am. She is extremely patient, flexible, accommodating, inventive and supportive. I would recommend her without hesitation.
I have studied German with Katja for over 3 years, both in person and online via FaceTime. Either works well – whatever the format, Katja works hard to ensure the lessons are relevant to me and my German abilities and that they fit around my sometimes unpredictable schedule. Katja has taken me from a very basic level to the foothills of actual competence, and I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn or improve their German!
I have been studying with Katja for four years now. She is very organised in planning the lessons in advance, and she has made learning German a fun and enjoyable experience. I am motivated to continue to study German, thanks to her!
Katja has been tutoring me in Business German for the last year and I have found her to be an excellent teacher: reliable, stimulating and practical. She has also been very flexible in working around a complex diary. I have very much enjoyed working with her.
Katja's enthusiasm, passion and dedication is absolutely contagious. She is incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable in her field and has a unique ability to make her lessons effective and enjoyable.
