Languages student offering German tutoring up to university level, as well as tutoring in GCSE core subjects.

Methodology

After making an initial assessment of ability in the first lesson, I design a course tailored to the needs and abilities of the student. We will practise Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing in each topic we cover, as well as Grammar-focused lessons that are applied to the relevant context. GCSE and A-Level study will be focused around the syllabus provided by the exam board, using a mixture of my own material and material provided to enhance the effectiveness of the lesson.

To increase oral fluency, I encourage the student to speak as much of the target language as possible during our sessions. In this manner, I am also able to correct their grammar, use of vocabulary and pronunciation through the lesson and plan further sessions based around any repetitive errors.

Homework tasks to complete between sessions will be assigned to consolidate new concepts and vocabulary before moving onto a new topic. These tasks will be designed around the student's interests and responsibilities.

Experience

I am a student studying German and Spanish language at the University of York. I have a year's experience teaching abroad in Germany Spain and I am TEFL qualified. I have taught students of all ages and abilities in a one-to-one environment in a diverse range of subjects.
