« 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. »

Certified English teacher from Cambridge University (Level 4 CELTA)

I participate in regular trainings on new teaching methods from different Goethe Institutes in Germany and England

- 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.

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, “If 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.
