Though I grep up multilingual, I was only introduced to German in school, because at home I spoke Hungarian. This means that I am familiar with learning German as a "foreign language speaker" and thus believe to be able to introduce the German language to a beginner properly. When it comes to languages I think that conversation and reading are the most important things to practice, because they can simultaneously teach grammar and prevent students from getting stuck with only theoretical knowledge. But this does not mean that I do not teach grammar at all, but it is not my only focus when teaching a language.
I am 19 year old student at University College London. I grew up multilingual, speaking Hungarian, German and English fluently and French at Italian at a B2 level. I have been tutoring since 2016 and have worked as a group leader for Red Cross organizing play afternoons for refugee children. I have excellent academic achievements and I would like to pursue a career in education policy and sociology.
