Nora-Native German speaker and qualified teacher in Greenwich or Skype lessons

Methodology

Hi, I'm Nora, a German and Percussion/Drums/Marimba teacher from Austria.

WHICH SUBJECT(s) DO YOU TEACH?
I teach German. Either you are just interested in the language, need German for Business, have to learn it for school (GCSE, A-levels), visit a German speaking country and want to speak a little bit, want to emigrate, want to learn High German (for business, acting,..) or a dialect: I am an experienced and trained teacher who likes to help you with your individual German goals.

Ich biete Deutsch Unterricht für deutschsprachige Kinder an, bzw. Musikunterricht auf Deutsch. Dies wird vor allem von Eltern genutzt, die Muttersprachler sind, deren Kinder jedoch in England aufwachsen und wenig auf Deutsch lesen oder schreiben.


+Good to know: I am very familiar with the GCSE, AS and A level system.
+Good to know: I also offer music lessons in German.
+Good to know: Being a musician myself, I also help opera singers with their German pronunciation.

I also offer translations.


If you are interested in my music lessons, please see my music section.


WHERE DO YOU TEACH?
Virus Update: I have been teaching via Skype for more than 8 years now, so I am always happy to teach you on Skype, especially in times like these. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding online tutoring.

Otherwise, lessons are either at my place in Greenwich. I live near Greenwich Park, very close to Lewisham and Blackheath. The nearest rail / DLR stations are: Greenwich, Blackheath and Lewisham. Buses: 53/386/380. There is also a lot of parking space. Or, if you live in Greenwich or Lewisham, it might be possible for me to come to your place. (I might ask for a travel supplement then-depending on the distance-please contact me for further information).
I also teach in Canary Wharf.


WHEN ARE YOU AVAILABLE?
I'm very flexible, so I'm sure we can arrange the perfect time and day.


WHICH AGES AND LEVELS DO YOU TEACH?
I teach everyone from 3-99. From beginners to advanced learners.

Some student examples from 10 years of teaching: lots of GCSE and A-level students, Homeschooled student, State Street Canary Wharf, 4 year old bilingual student, Wagner lovers. English groom preparing his wedding vows in German for his German bride.


WHICH QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU PREPARE YOUR STUDENTS FOR?
GCSE, AS/ A-levels, IB, A1-C2. Furthermore: Auditions, Business German, University German.


DESCRIBE YOUR ARRANGEMENTS FOR ONLINE TUTORING:
I offer online German tuition via SKYPE.


DO YOU HAVE A PERSONAL MESSAGE FOR STUDENTS?
I look forward to hearing from you! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I highly recommend Nora who has been a very personable, flexible and patient German conversation teacher to me for the past year. She creates a very pleasant and easy going environment to practice speaking German, and also understands when other commitments mean that I need to re-arrange lessons/frequency of lessons.

Nora has been teaching me and my daughter German for nearly two years. My daughter wanted to study for a German GCSE independently because it was not offered by her school. She has made amazing progress with Nora - I'm impressed with how much she can now read and understand. I'm enjoying my lessons and my confidence has improved hugely. Nora is great at tailoring the lessons to what I need, whether that is grammar or conversation.

More recently, she has started teaching my younger child, (10) too. He looks forward to the lessons and his confidence in speaking has already improved. I asked him what he likes about the lessons and he said "everything!" She also teaches my youngest son (7) guitar. She really responds to his interests and he has made amazing progress both in playing and theory.

My son has been having German tuition with Nora three years. We started after a change of German teacher at his school. He has since regained his confidence with German. He really enjoys Nora's style of teaching and decided to take his GCSE in German with Nora as his teacher rather than at his school.

Really great tutor. Nora is very flexible which was important to me as I work full time. She explains everything in a clear way and is very patient. I feel like I have learned a lot in the few months.
