Native German speaker teaching private lessons at all levels in North East London

Methodology

I believe a strong foundation in grammar is important, but the lesson also needs to be fun. I usually start with a bit of grammar, then introduce some reading and finish off with some speaking. With more advanced students, I fully focus on reading, speaking and writing skills, depending on the individual student's needs. Additionally I can offer preparation for TELC/Goethe Institut Exams at all levels from A1-C2

Background

I am an actor, originally from Vienna, Austria. I have been teaching German for over 2 years now and have taught over 15 students so far. From beginners to University degree level, I cater to individual needs and interests. I will also teach you something about German, Austrian and Swiss culture, as I believe it is important to know the cultural background of a language.
I currently teach over 10 students at all levels, two of them are preparing for their exams at the Goethe Institut. One of my students just successfully passed his B1 exam and is working with me towards his B2.

It is easy to understand him when he speaks German, as he speaks clear, allowing one to pick up words quickly.

5 stars from me.

Simon is a fabulous tutor! As an actor, Simon has a special relationship with words, both in his native language German and in English. Simon’s English is impeccable, and whether you are American or English, there is essentially no language barrier when communicating with him. Simon has helped greatly with my pronunciation of German (one of the biggest hurdles for non-native speakers) as well as the nuance of idiomatic phrases and colloquialisms. Sites like duo lingo can be wildly helpful to get you started on a language, but there is really no substitute for practice with a native speaker. Simon is patient, kind, and a wonderful person to spend time with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to begin studying German, or improve their existing skills.
