Native German and physiotherapist offering German lessons and translations to/from English, including medical contexts.

Methodology

Hi there!

My name is Sophia and I relocated from Germany to Edinburgh to live and work there. Because my partner is learning German, I quickly found myself in the position of a language tutor - and it's pretty awesome :)

I've always had a talent for language itself, and I'm willing to help anyone who has an intrinsic motivation to learn German or people who need help with translations.

Everybody is welcome, beginners as well as advanced learners!

Speaking of learning methods, I'll adapt to whatever you need. This includes for example:

- learning with a standard teaching book of your choice, including the practice of grammar rules, spelling and comprehension, as well as pronounciation and emphasis
- reading German books together - both partners can read out and afterwards discuss the content
- conversations - including standard or job interviews, colloquial language etc. (for advanced learners: we can even constantly talk in German)
- working through podcasts or other online content
- help with other learning methods, e.g. vocabulary apps, tips and advice for usage
- lessons available in Edinburgh or via Skype (voice-only)

Experience

As a native, I can offer specific knowledge about the language from an intuitive perspective. Working with non-natives on the other hand gave me a good insight in how they think and what their struggles with German might be.

As a physiotherapist, I'm used to explain and understand any insecurities my patients/clients might experience. Don't worry about any question or issue you have - I will try to get into your way of thinking and figure out which explanatory approach will be the best!

Due to my medical education, I can of course offer language-based service related to medical topics.

I'm looking forward to your requests!
Cheers!

Details

==============================================

I strongly prefer giving lessons via VOICECHAT (Skype, Discord, Teamspeak, anything is fine). I do NOT offer webcam lessons.

==============================================

Please note:
I need to charge increased rates depending on how long the traveltime is (I use public transport and my own feet).


My prices are generally based on both the way to your place and back to mine.

Prices may differ if I combine the lesson with other nearby activities (e.g. if the lesson is on my way from work).

Up to 30 minutes: Free of charge

30-45 Minutes: 5 £

45-60 Minutes: 7 £

60-80 Minutes: 10 £

80+ Minutes: 15 £+
