I usually start of by understanding what my student already knows, their curriculum is about and what their issue is. After that, I consider their learning type and look for methods of teaching that accommodate that. I believe everyone can understand everything, but the school system is often not individualized enough. A personalized experience is key for me with a good relationship. Furthermore, I know repetition and speaking is key for learning languages, so I will encourage lots of vocabulary and speaking german with me. For economics and political science, I think we often fear the abstract theories so I use many real-life examples to explain lots of theories.
I am an undergraduate student (did Fashion Management and now PPE) and I have taught high school students in my home country Germany, in both economics and german. I have helped students get a B+ in economics from a D in their final exam. I am very engaged and really hope my students get the most out of their potential. Interest is the most important asset. My current German students either need help with homework or are moving to the country and need to start from scratch! I will help you to speak, read, write and understand conversations. Too often in classes, only one thing is focused on leaving you with no speaking ability.
For online tuition, there is no cancellation fee however for private classes, you must tell me on the same day in the morning until 9 am so that I can refund your class.

Perfect! Yvonne helped me a lot with my overall grasp of German, writing, speaking and listening. Sie ist toll!
David is a fast learner and a hard worker! He is very engaged in his studies and will take them home, to work on things privately. Even when he is busy, he will do the homework and manage challenging exercises. He is very eager to do things right, and this passion and interest make him delightful to work with.
Yvonne has been tutoring me for over a year now. She not only helps with certain questions I may have but explains an entire topic fully in depth.
You can really tell that she’s had a lot of experience in tutoring! Thanks to her I’ve seen great results in my understanding, as well as a rise in my grade average!
Yvonne is extremely driven, and very hard working when something interests her. She likes to explore her creative side which I am sure makes her an inventive and resourceful teacher, which should pair marvellously with her firm but comprehensive character.
Yvonne can tailor her lessons perfectly according to the needs and learning styles of her students. She is very professional and friendly at the same time. She knows what she is doing, 10/10 would recommend her lessons!
I’ve personally known Yvonne for almost 10 years now. Her passion, commitment and ambition for the things she cares about and finds interest in is truly remarkable and a valuable quality of her personality. I think I haven’t met many people that have had as much insight into the political and financial world, at such a young age, as Yvonne. Her command of the languages she speaks paired with the successful participation in the European Youth Parliament program and having graduated from an economics profile makes her extremely qualified for this tutor job. I’m sure Yvonne will excel at helping other people achieve their academic goals by passing on her profound knowledge and experience in the related field.
