Recent St Andrews Graduate with teaching experience offering classes in German and Russian in Cardiff up to university level

Methodology

Having previously worked as a substitute teacher in various subjects for students aged 6-16, I am able to adapt my teaching style to the particular student's and subject's requirements. Personally, I believe that a thorough understanding of grammar and a lot of oral communication practice are perhaps the most essential aspects of language acquisition.

Background

I have just graduated from the University of St Andrews with an MA (Hons) German and Russian with a Distinction in Spoken German and am now pursuing a postgraduate course in classical singing at the RWCMD in Cardiff. A native speaker of Danish and of half German origin, I naturally have a more native-sounding accent, which I believe will help make you or your child's German more authentic.

Having worked with Kristel for almost 8 years, I can assure you you won't regret choosing her as a tutor: Not only are her language skills brilliant, but she is also an outgoing and approachable person, always happy to help others and share her knowledge with them. Kristel always spoke very fondly of her time as a substitute teacher at a local school and it is clear to me that she enjoys teaching.

Fanny

Kristel is a knowledgeable, patient, and affable tutor who on multiple occasions has proof-read my essays, improving both my language skills and the clarity of my writing style. She is a hard-working individual who can express and explain things in a simple yet comprehensive manner while at the same time making the learning experience engaging and fun. The combination of Kristel's academic and practical experience of German (from her year abroad in Vienna) makes her a valuable and very helpful tutor.

Mikkel

Kristel was a top German student at her International Baccalaureate Diploma and since pursued the language at University. She's very passionate about languages and about teaching them and I'm confident she'd be a great tutor for any learner from beginner through very advanced levels. (I've done courses myself in German up to B2/C1 level).

J
Jack

Kristel is a friendly, approachable and extremely hard working tutor, with a passion and dedication for what she does. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor, not just because she does a great job, but because she is great to be around too!

Kasper

I have had the honor of working with Kristel for several years and have thereby become acquainted with her persistence, patience and passion in everything she does. I hereby give Kristel my warmest recommendations.
