I'm a postgraduate at The University of Oxford, and already hold a Congratulatory First in German (BA) with the best results of the 200 students in the Languages department, as well as the highest grades in Arts subjects at my college.
I also have over four years of tutoring experience, from primary through to GCSE, A Level, and undergraduate. It's a consistent delight to celebrate tutees' successes - be it getting to grips with a thorny bit of grammar, having a 'eureka!' moment with a tricky piece of literature, or passing exams with flying colours.
There can be no one-size-fits-all formula when it comes to a tutoring session. Every tutee has different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and will progress at an individual pace. I can help with anything from oral presentations and spoken fluency, to essays, literature, and grammar (having personally tried all the tips and tricks!).
Daniella's last completed A Level German job with Leann: Intensive - Hi I need help with writing some essay plans to learn for A level exam in 2/3 weeks time. The texts are: Der Besuch der alien Dame and Das Leben Der Anderen. Have you good knowledge of either of these? Thanks
I have experience of helping people with languages of a variety of ages and standards for both oral and written examinations. Previous students of mine have been very pleased with their results and guidance received which is always tailored to your specific needs. I have lived and worked in Austria to hone my spoken German and spent a year studying in Russia so have very high levels of fluency and knowledge of grammar for both. I can offer more in depth instruction in German and Russian literature or at a more basic introductory level. I am very diligent and reliable.

Alex's last review in A Level German from Margaret: more good speaking work + grammar
I have taught everything from music theory to English as far afield as New York and Madagascar, in classrooms, 1-to-1 and online. I have a Congratulatory First in Modern Languages from Oxford and have been tutoring a range of subjects for the last 9 years. I also have experience of living, working and studying in both France and Germany. Although my style of teaching is friendly and laid-back, I take immense pleasure from academic achievement and from inspiring others to achieve their academic goals.
Sasha's last completed A Level German job with Ryan: 1-2 hrs/week - I would like some tutoring for AQA German focused on vocabulary, grammar, speaking and cultural knowledge.
Sasha's last review in A Level German from Michelle: Very helpful with essay writing skills and teaches grammar clearly and effectively.
I teach learners of all abilities and ages, using my experience in teaching secondary (Years 7-11), as well as tertiary (Years 12 and 13) students and can prepare learners for GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and IBDP German ab initio, and German B (SL or HL) exams. I have also taught professionals, adults and in primaries, as well as raised our own children bilingually.
The 2018/2019 examination season was yet another very successful year for my tutees. I do not only keep my 100% pass rate; all my A Level tutees outperformed their predicted grades (based on their 'Mocks') by two grades and my GCSE/IGCSE tutees improved their predicted grades by at least three grades/digits. Many of them outperformed their target grades (where possible) and one of them improved by five grades/digits compared to her predicted '4' ('Mocks'). Also, my Goethe Zertifikat tutees passed with at least „gut".

German job with Simon:
Occasional - Guten Tag. Ich bin daran interessiert, die Prüfungen abzulegen, die zu Deutsch auf A-Level führen. Ich bin 76 Jahre alt und habe Mitte der siebziger Jahre einige Jahre in Hamburg gearbeitet. Ich suche eine(n) Lehrer(in), der/die mit den Details hinter den Stufen in Richtung dieses Ziels vertraut ist. Dazu gehören die einzelnen Prüfungen und ihre Anforderungen sowie die Auswahlmöglichkeiten (Kultur, Literatur, Film usw.), aus denen der Kandidat eine Auswahl treffen muss. Es wäre hilfreich, aber nicht unbedingt erforderlich, wenn der/die Tutor(in) über eine bestimmte Expertise in einem oder mehreren dieser Themen verfügt. Beispiel: Ich habe A-Level-Spanisch und eine von meinen Spezialitäten war das spanische Kino, von dem mein Tutor ein tiefes Wissen hat. Es wäre auch wichtig, dass wir uns über Skype oder Facetime unterhalten können würden.
Natürlich muss ich mir auch einen Kostenvoranschlag machen.
Gegenwärtig prüfe ich die Möglichkeiten mit allen, die meine Anfragen beantwortet haben.
Mit freundlichem Grüßen,
Soenke's last review in A Level German from Simon: neue B2 Probeprüfungen - unvorbereitet (Hueber Projekt B2) Brilliant, wide-ranging, imaginative, as always.
I've tutored German to all levels before with great results. As previous German student, I understand what is needed to achieve the best possible results and can teach you that material in a way that is very accessible and comprehensive. I try to listen to what you actually want/need to learn and don't just teach irrelevant material, which wont help you.

I have been teaching languages for more than 15 years long and always improving and getting new ways and methods to teach.
I have been tutoring in French and German since I was in sixth form and spent six months in Vienna as a teaching assistant in 2014/15. I have taught a range of students between the ages of 11 and 18, both individually and in groups of up to 30. Therefore, I am well versed in planning and adapting lessons to focus on a student's strengths, weaknesses, requirements and interests.
Working as a translator in Paris has given me a breadth of French vocabulary that spans beyond the classroom and literature course. My students will thus get the chance to stand out from the crowd and impress with their diverse knowledge of colloquial and technical idiom.
Both of the languages I studied were learnt from scratch at secondary school, and the methods I devised and skills I trained throughout my schooling and time at Oxford are relevant and applicable to anyone wishing to improve their fluency and command of French and German. I am currently teaching myself Spanish, Danish and Swedish using the same techniques to build up my proficiency quickly as well as sustainably.
Daniel's last completed A Level German job with LEANNE: 1-2 hrs/week - A
I have an Upper Second-Class Honours in History from Oxford University. A*A*A*A at A Level in History, German, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation. The experience that I have gained from observing lessons and teaching supervised classes in schools has taught me that interactive teaching is the gateway to academic achievement. I will use a variety of methods such as mind maps, acronyms, quizzes and diagrams to help you reach the next academic level. I want to help you get to grips with the subject material, while giving you the confidence to use the right exam and essay techniques to get the grades you deserve. Everyone learns differently so I will tailor my teaching to your learning style and exam board.
Already during my undergraduate degree in politics in Germany I taught first-year students how to write academic papers and how to conduct research. Thus I know how to prepare a tutoring lesson and how to explain things in an understandable way. Additionally, I have been an online tutor in German, focusing on the preparation of speaking exams for GCSE. As a PhD student at the University of St Andrews, Scotland I will also be involved in teaching undergraduate students in International Relations and Security Studies. Therefore I am a very experienced tutor who enjoys teaching.
Furthermore, I am a native speaker in German. I did my A-Levels and my undergraduate degree in Germany. Therefore I can help you with all the difficulties in learning this language.
Tilman's last completed A Level German job with Iben: 1-2 hrs/week - Tutoring for my daughter who just got an E in her AS level. She insists she loves German and would like to continue with the Edexcel German A level but she requires some focussed support if she is going to do well.
I have been tutoring since 2014. I worked as a tutor throughout my time as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford and graduate at the University of Cambridge. Every pupil has different requirements, and I always tailor my lessons and approach accordingly in order to help them develop academically, and hopefully enjoy this process.
During my time as a tutor I have taught a range of subjects to pupils at different levels, including English, History, Maths, German, Latin and Greek. I have had great success helping pupils prepare for their A Levels, GCSEs, Common Entrance and 11+ exams. Equally I have helped older students with university admissions, and have successfully helped pupils with entrance exam preparation for the University of Oxford. In terms of helping prepare pupils for admissions exams, I have a broad knowledge of different schools across London and outside of it, and what each one requires of its students.
Schools I have tutored pupils for admissions include:
St Paul's Boys School (which I attended)
St Paul's Girls School
