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 review in German from Clare: Thanks for a great lesson.
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 done work experience in France and Austria to help gain a feel for the languages and hone fluency in oration as well as travelling extensively through Europe. I can offer more in depth instruction in German and Russian literature or at a more basic introductory level as well as language as they are my degree languages. I am very diligent and reliable.
Alex's last completed German job with Janek: Intensive - Get best grade. Target A. I am in Sri Lanka ref time slots. Preference is local time between 9 am and 7 pm.
Alex's last review in German from Margaret: more good speaking work + grammar
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 2017/2018 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 Urszula:
1-2 hrs/week - Hi,
My name is Ula and I am looking to refresh and improve my German skills. I used to learn it in High School back in Poland and I passed a final exam in Geman level B1. However, I have been leaving in Denmark for 3 years, learned Danish and forgot all my German.
I would love to improve my language skill as I currently working in a hotel reception and being able to communicate in Geman would be very helpful in my line of work. Moreover, I am hoping to start my master in Hospitality in September 2019 and it would be great if I could include advance German language skill in my application.
I am looking to have one-on-one sessions once or twice a week, starting from September. However, my schedule changes every week so our meeting would have to be flexible ( I understand if that would increase the fee). We could meet at my place, as I leave on Halmyre Street or somewhere else, wherever it is best for as I can easily commute to New Town. I do not have any material on my own, hence it will have to be provided. I would like to inquire if you would have time for my classes and what would be a monthly cost of them if we would meet twice a week? Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

I have been teaching languages for more than 15 years long and always improving and getting new ways and methods to teach.

Luiz's last review in German from suzy: great class! Luiz is improving a lot particularly with Bitpaper whiteboard which is significantly better than zoom whiteboard.
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.
Tom's last completed German job with Anna: 1-2_HOURS - 75% above
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 German job with Josh : 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking to move to Germany in the next six months and am looking to try and get a good grasp of the language in that time. Would love to have a tutor on a weekly basis who is passionate and wants 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 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 German job with Margaret: 1-2 hrs/week - Currently son is in L6, looking for tutor to assist with spoken part of A Level.
I have over 4 years of experience as a tutor. I tutored throughout my time as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford both online and in person. 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. 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.
I graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in History and German. I specialised in Modern European History, with a particular focus on Germany. I will begin studying for an MPhil in Modern European History in October 2019 at the University of Cambridge.
Schools I have tutored pupils for admissions include:
St Paul's Boys School (which I attended)
St Paul's Girls School
Tristan's last completed German job with Nicki: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter is 15 and good at German but has a poor teacher at school they are very behind with the IGCSE syllabus. She takes that next summer. She has not got the tenses yet and i think it would be good to work up from these as a foundation.
