Language graduate from Nottingham university gives German, Russian, EAL and French lessons

Methodology

I give German lessons up to A level standard and French and Russian lessons up to GCSE standard as well as English as a foreign language lessons.

I intend to assess the best way of improving each student based on their weaknesses. I will go through any assignments with students and work on mistakes, provide tuition, practice and feedback on oral work and take any suggestions of areas to work on.

I think that tutoring relies on being a good listener to work out the needs of each individual student. Lessons should be tailored to those needs. Lessons should also be relaxed and fun to encourage the student to foster a love of learning which will stand them in good stead for a life time.

Experience

I am new to giving lessons in England, however I have plenty of experience abroad. In Russia I planned lessons for small groups of children by initially assessing their abilities and then planning 2 weeks worth of daily lessons to increase their ability and confidence. It was very rewarding to see shy children speak up happily at the end of the sessions and see how much the grammar of some of the grammatically weaker children improve.

I also tutored German sixth form equivalent students before their oral exams to iron out any mistakes in their pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary choices and help them to become more confident.

In the Russian Summer camps I taught groups of 6- 12 children aged 10-18 and in the German school I taught alongside the class teachers or alone with groups of 2-25 students aged 12-18.
