London-based American top-graduate from a German International School teaching German language and culture

About the lesson

Learning a language that isn't your native tongue doesn't have to be hard or arduous, it can be fun!
Having had to learn German as my second language, I know first hand how it is easy for students to lose faith in themselves and lack motivation. I believe that when learning a new language, practice is key; but it doesn't have to be drill, it can be more game-based. Tailoring lessons to a student's particular interests and passions, German can be taught in the form of a sports workout, an art lesson, a story workshop, or a grammar race.
While I have been babysitting for 6 years and tutoring for 4 years, you are never too young or too old to learn a language like German!
I am fluent in German after having studied at a German International school for 12 years, where I tutored students ranging from 1-7 grades. Depending on age and concentration level, lessons typically last 30-90 minutes.
I will customize the level and difficulty of the lessons to help prepare the students for their studies and their tests.

To give you a better idea of how I prepare my lessons, a typical lesson could be built like this: introduction to the lesson topic in connection with student's daily life, or a quiz revising past knowledge; part one: the learning portion by means of texts, drawings, comics, video, audio recording, etc. part two: practical application with the material from part one and adding a creative portion from the student - it is all about making connections! But each student is different and so is each lesson, so your lesson will be customized to you and what helps you learn best. I do typically give assignments after the lessons to let the material sink in, but these are often fun like a physical or arts activity.
I am based in London and lessons would be held online, however depending on availability and student needs, lessons could potentially be held in person.

About Victoria

I grew up in the United States and come from a multi-cultural family and household.
While I loved my German school, mastering German isn't always easy. I have much compassion for my students, and would love nothing more than to help and encourage them in their studies.
I have tutored in multiple subjects, as I received high marks in all subjects, but many students, teachers and parents would reach out to me for tuition in German. Thus, it is the subject I have the most experience in tutoring, and one that has become particularly close to my heart.
Growing up my grandmother had this German mantra: "Lerne Ordnung, liebe sie, sie erspart dir Zeit und Müh". In other words, to learn and appreciate organization will save you much time and stress, which is something I apply in my life and particularly in my studies and lessons. Having fundamental organizational skills and a myriad of revision techniques is what I owe my success to, and what I plan to impart onto my students.
While I am currently studying history at King's College London, I hope to go into the educational sector, which is why I have focused so much of my extracurriculars during my school time around working with other students.
Every student is different - I don't think that is a weakness, I see it as a strength. With the right tools and motivation, I am sure that students will reach their academic goals.
