I believe that learning modern languages should be about connecting with people in a friendly and enthusiastic manner. As a result, I take a more holistic approach to my teaching. Wherever possible, I try to make sure that my lessons are relaxed, humorous and fun.
Professional and experienced tutor for TESOL (bilingual, TESOL certificate ) and German (native speaker) provides tailor-made lessons for all levels and needs. I also provide French lessons (I have lived and worked in France for 13 years before moving to Scotland).
Hello to everybody interested in learning and/or improving their English and Modern Foreign Language abilities! I have had 34 years experience of teaching in the UK, Sweden, Germany, Italy, France EFL/ESL/ESOL as well as Foreign Languages (German, French, Spanish, Italian) My Lessons are realistic and relevant to your learning needs.
As a German student myself I understand that learning the language can be tedious and so I make sure that the learning is done in a number of different ways to keep things fresh. With my current status as a student I am able to give more relatable than many older tutors because I understand how difficult it is to balance education with other aspects of life and so I can give advice on such issues.
My top priority is to help my students to succeed and meet their full potential. A relaxed and supportive learning environment is thus essential in the learning process, which is why I try and offer a diverse range of methods, tasks and input. I can provide lessons to all ability groups in German and English and beginners in French.
Key is to learn languages in a playful way and to work most eagerly on speaking and understanding them. Of course grammar is very important but most learning happens by doing - even the grammar. Also, vocabulary is indispensable, thus, reading and speaking is very important.
Always wanted to learn a new language? Fancy a challenge? Want some extra help before exams, writing assessments or some speaking practice? I'm a university student who loves all things German and has tutored students in the past.
I teach informally. I like to give my students a space to develop. I believe the best way to improve languages skills is through conversation. If you converse a lot in the foreign language, your grammar, vocab and accent all improve rapidly.
I believe being approachable and identifying the persons weaknesses are key to a successful collaboration. Maintaining a open relationship will make the process more enjoyable and helpful. My dedication and willing-fulness too help others will overshadow my lack of experience.
I strongly believe in having fun whilst learning, so I use a very interactive approach with lots of role plays, pictures, video clips and creative opportunities for oral/written expression. Over the years, I taught many students and found that all my learners responded well to my supportive approach and achieved good results.
As well as helping with oral fluency and pronunciation, essay writing, vocabulary, and grammar, I'm able to coach tutees in exam technique (having personally tried and tested all the tips and tricks!). My last student went from a grade C to an A at GCSE within the space of a few months, and I believe this is down to my endeavours to make language-learning, first and foremost, fun.
I base my lessons on the child's or adults class exercises such as homework or preparing for an exam or presentation. I would also be open to teaching someone without any prior German language skills or classes. My methodology when it comes to teaching is a calm approach along with a set routine to insure long lasting results.
Hello, I’m a German graduate student in philosophy at the University of Oxford. I was born and raised in Germany and received my first academic degree from the University of Leipzig in Germany.
English and German as a foreign language: my approach is that language learning should be fun, efficient and useful.
Nobody will ever get a real feeling for a language through a book. The famous 70:20:10 Learning model shows that most people most effectively learn (70%) through experience, 20% through others and 10% from a book. Tutoring perfectly covers the 70% and 20% in this model. My lessons focus on hearing and speaking the language which ensures long-term learning rather than 'bulimia'-learning.
I approach teaching languages always from what people are most interested in and on their level of knowledge.
Communicative language teaching (CLT) to enable the learners to communicate effectively and appropriately in the various situations they would be likely to find themself in. The content of CLT courses are functions such as inviting, suggesting, complaining or notions such as the expression of time, quantity, location.
- I can cater my teaching to a variety of needs: towards specific qualifications or general interest. - My native tongue is English, in which I can converse according to preference, but my German is fluent which is suitable for oral practice.
I have an individual approach to each student, based on his expectations and targets in learning. I develop individual topics and work together with the student towards achieving the set targets.

I love exciting lessons, allowing everyone to speak and practice as much as possible! Without making mistakes speaking, I wouldn't have learned the language. Lessons would include all skills required in language learning, eg. speaking, reading, writing, listening and understanding.
extensive teaching and tutoring experience in 2 countries and 3 languages has made me an intuitive teacher who recognises students' learning styles and tailors lessons to requirements on every occasion. Try this analogy: your new language is a massive jigsaw puzzle and my job is to help you complete the big picture.
My teaching method depends on the pupil. No child or adult is like the other and the challenge is not only to learn the language, it is do work out how to do it with fun and in a natural, easy way.
I always try to make my lessons interesting through creative tasks and different methods like different group work, role-play, discussing ted talks/documentaries, concept mapping, storyboarding etc. Me as a person, I am very chatty, active and openminded and love to involve this in my lessons.
I aim to provide engaging and detailed lessons to students at all linguistic levels.
I believe that talking to one another is the most important part of learning a language, and so base my lessons on discussion in order to develop grammar and expression, and allow space for any questions. I am confident and friendly, and am therefore suited to teaching those of GCSE and A Level standards.
"Question WHY - and it will stick." Give the student the tools to understand language constructions. Learn at a higher level than your exam requires: we will work through more complex translations so that you are confident and well prepared to achieve high marks in your exam/personal targets.
I am a sociable person who actively enjoys working in teams and with people. My previous work experiences, both paid and volunteer, prove to me that I enjoy participating and engaging in projects and works.
My lessons can be shaped around the needs of the individuals. I have spoken German all my life so reading, writing, speaking and listening all come naturally to me. I pass my knowledge on in a friendly, relaxed manner until you can understand it.
