Why choose Spires' German tutoring?

Why study German?

There are many reasons for people to learn German, and our answer is by no means exhaustive. If you are worried about not knowing another language, German is a good choice to expand your language skills and horizons for our multilingual world. Learning German will give you access to a part of the world that is full of curious people and rich in tradition. Since the 1800s, German speakers have played a preeminent role in science, culture, history, and language itself. Learning German is also a practical skill, as it is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. If your goal is to succeed professionally, then speaking more than one language has a definite bonus and learning German will certainly help you along the way.

What university degrees is German useful for?

Learning German is useful for students pursuing careers in business, music, engineering, medicine, chemistry, international relations, economics, business, and many other fields.

Studying German language improves a person's potential in many different fields. German vocabulary and grammar can be useful tools for organic chemists. There are also a number of disciplines outside of chemistry where the German language plays an important role. For example, engineering. German engineering is world-famous, and if you want to learn German engineering better, then a German course can do wonders for your future studies and career.

You can also take a degree in German Literature if you are interested in it. German Literature is rich in famous works and authors. Studying German Literature will not only prepare you for your Mensa test but also enrich your experience as a lifelong learner.

What careers can studying German lead to?

There are many careers that can be pursued after studying the German language. Here are a few examples:

By learning German, one has greater access to the design and business standards that go into engineering in Germany. This will then help when you are designing products and drafting business plans for your personal projects.

A lot of the top engineering firms are located in Germany. As a result, knowing German will help you get into an office in that country and work on projects with new contacts and partners. Knowing German will open doors to companies that might not be willing to offer employment otherwise. This puts you ahead of your peers who do not know German because it gives you a leg up when applying for jobs or starting your own engineering company in Germany.

How expert German tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Why Choose Spires’ Tutoring?

We only hire 4% of the teachers that apply to Spires and they are all professional and experienced school and university level educators. Many have qualifications from top universities and institutions in the UK, USA, and around the world. All have a Ph.D., MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.

We have a lot of repeat students and you can check out the high star ratings our clients leave.

How does Spires’ online tutoring work?

You can find a professional tutor in four easy steps:

3. Have your face-to-face class. This can be done whenever and wherever you are, it’s all online- neither you nor the tutor travels!

4. Replay the classes afterward for any missed information at your own pace and convenience. 

Private help is that easy!

Does it matter if the tutor is near me?

No, it doesn’t! It’s all done online whenever and wherever you are. All you have to do is pick your ideal mentor and speak to them to arrange the best time for you to have video lessons.It doesn’t matter at all if they are miles and miles (or kilometre and kilometre) away from you!

Who will my tutor be?

This is all up to you. You have a huge choice. You can look through our member tutor profiles, check student reviews and bids, their qualifications and backgrounds, hourly rates, hours taught, other subject they teach - and even check out if they have many repeat students. 

Then, communicate with your favourites to see if they are right for your needs and learning style. You can have a free video call by webcam, usually over zoom. Then you pick the person you’d like to help with your studies and schedule your first webcam lesson!

What is the role of a tutor?

It is their responsibility to guide you to understand the subject you have chosen. Using their expertise in the chosen topic and their teaching experience they will help you to understand, analyse and use the content of the lessons to apply at a later date, whether it is at your chosen university, your career or in your day-to-day life.
