Native German speaker with 30 years of teaching experience makes learning German fun -at home or online - school, business, leisure - based in Northeast Derbyshire

Methodology

I teach all students from age 11 to...An initial assessment is used to identify needs and develop a strategy for learning and success. A holistic approach (plenty of school, SEN and international experience) ensures that the students' needs are recognised and met. I assess the learner type, the strength, weaknesses, past experience, desired outcome and tailor to those needs. A recent student needed A-Level prep on a daily basis, another student wants to travel in German speaking countries, businesses want to expand their business portfolio and require staff development. I am here to provide the necessary tuition and support.

Experience

Started teaching at age 14, over 40 years of experience in all settings: business, schools, private. Lessons are 1-to-1 or groups (max. 8) or online. I know the current curriculum, also tailor to identified needs and wishes. Results: usually 2-3 grades improvement, non-speakers become conversational, businesses gain new business. Shared success feels great.
