I use a variety of methods and tailor my lessons to the individual learner. I use reading story books to improve comprehension, videos and audio tools for listening and comprehension, current materials and topical subjects. I am an SQA assessor so can work on preparation formsitting exams and assessments at school or college.
I always start with the basics before moving to intensive sessions. I make the students write all the necessary details. I regularly give them assignments to improve their grammar and vocabulary. I integrate theory with audio-visual aids to make the sessions more interesting.
I have been teaching languages for 30 years and look forward to helping you, whether you are preparing for exams or are learning for business or pleasure. - Which subject(s) do you teach? German - beginners to A level and degree level English as a foreign language.
My teaching method is all about having fun and enjoying learning. This is the philosophy I have had throughout my education and I firmly believe it is the best and most positive way to learn. Lessons are structured in that we learn about a topic, such as immigration or media by learning new vocabulary to then work on grammar relating to the topic.
When I was in school, I found it impossible to fully comprehend a subject when being just lectured. Instead, I found that a peer-to-peer approach works best. Having been a student learning these topics at one point, I can easily understand what works and what doesn't with each area of study.
My teaching method is never the same for any student , i adapt my style of teaching to suit the student best. Majority of the time i ask the student which way they like to learn. I have been tutoring for over a year now and this style seems to work.
I will get you to talk a lot of German in my lessons. While I think it is very beneficial to go over any text you wrote in German, I am a firm believer that one can only learn a language by speaking it. Whether you are doing German as a minor, major, or just learning it for fun, my lessons will build your confidence in speaking and writing German.
Being an open, friendly and communicative person, I prefer one-to-one lessons. I can tailor the lesson to the students needs, so the first step is always chat with the potential student. Afterwards I can decide which method suits better. Teaching children is based on playing but adult learners need something different.
If I can I encourage my students to use creative subjects such as art and music to communicate thoughts and ideas as this helps to bring out the best and often helps to raise the subject knowledge and understanding, too. Making use of IT skills for grammar practice, vocabulary revision as well as listening tasks can also be very helpful.
I do not want people to have to learn of by heart and really discourage this, instead I place importance on the basics of the subject from which I can build up. I try to make to make my classes as interactive as possible.
I believe that the best way to learn a language is through speaking and listening, as well as repetition. I will also adapt my teaching method to suit you best in order to help you as good as possible. I can provide you with exercises and extra material throughout the lessons.

As I person I am quite open and honest and very positive. I believe that the best way to master any skill (not only languages) is to learn to enjoy it and appreciate the opportunities it gives you. This is why I like giving exaples and creating exercises tailored to each person's specific interests.
I will help you with the aspects of German you find challenging, happily tailoring lessons to suit you.
My whole aim with teaching is to make the experience as enjoyable and beneficial as possible. I am happy to stick to the constraints of examination preparation, but I find that it is a lot better to explore all and any aspects of language as they come up.
I approach my lessons with 3 main focal points. First, the integration of new material in your repertoire should be concise, logical, and therefore connected with existing information. Secondly, the pace of a course should increase exponentially, by starting slowly and becoming more and more intense, as your skills will develop with an equal speed.

I am a student in my fourth year at Exeter University studying German. Having studied German for many years now, I have a good grasp of the language and would love to share my knowledge to help potential students.
I´m a spanish biochemistry student who is gonna be in Cambridge from 18th June- 18th August. I would love to introduce you or help you improve this great language called German. The lessons can be focused on grammar, vocabulary, conversation... especially good with kids, as I use a fun and dinamic methodology to get them started in the language with games, songs, etc.
Studying a subject should not just be about learning facts, it should be about experiencing the field you are moving in, so that the information stays with you. I am a fan of interactive learning, by creating situations linked to the facts that need to be learned and creating a personal learning profile.
My aim for teaching is to make it as accessible and fun for students as possible. Lessons and activities should be engaging and serve a purpose with the goal on learning language skills with real world relevance through a variety of topical and cultural resources as well as traditional methods for grammatical learning.
My teaching methodology is mainly based on the spoken word, with a particular focus on pronunciation and conversation. It is usually fairly informal, and we will speak about hobbies and current affairs. I encourage my students to listen to German music and watch German films regularly, which we then talk about in class.
In my way of teaching I always try to adapt to the individual needs the student has. So if the student wants focus on a specific aspect of German, or If I see certain thing which needs to be improved, we can work on that. In general I value speaking a lot because I think thats the first and also most important thing to get comfortable at learning any language.
My aim is to offer a safe environment where you can learn from your mistakes and feel comfortable practicing speaking german. I approach my german classes often with pictures or tasks which focus on how to form sentences, the word order and pronunciation.
I have vast experience with children from ages 4-16, having worked at a play scheme and as a teaching assistant for 3 years. I like to teach through immersion, speaking predominantly in German to encourage rapid learning. I to establish a learning timetable to ensure progress is reached in time for examinations.
I base my classes on the course material the student has, to personalize my classes as much as possible and make them applicable to the academic situation. For languages, I like a blend of speaking and writing. I have a series of external material available to make classes more interesting and applicable to real situations.
