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 German job with Veronika: 1-2 hrs/week - German for 10 year old - knows some basic as mum is german) and 12 year old to learn and get her to GCSE one year before GCSE’s. She is in year 6 now.
Daniella's last review in German from Elise: amazing
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 completed German job with Eve : Intensive - i speak German to GCSE A* standard but i need to be able to speak German for my summer job and need help with grammar and creating sentences
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 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 German from Nitish: HR Reading 2018, exercise 9 onward, tenses and syntax Very Good for my gcse mock preparation.
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 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 German from Michelle: Very helpful with essay writing skills and teaches grammar clearly and effectively.
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 completed German job with Matthias : Intensive - learn with Luis
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 have tutored in person and online for over 10 years and receive great feedback with my students receiving mostly A*'s and A's. I believe that interacting and stimulation is the key to excellent tutoring.
I work mainly on perfecting exam techniques and how to answer the question for maximum marks. I have a lot of practice material and previous exam material.
I welcome inquiries from anyone who would like extra, on-going tuition, help with general revision or assignments, or preparation for exams.
I have experience with OCR, AQA and Edexcel syllabus.
Marie K's last completed German job with Irene: Over 2 hrs/week - GCSE
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 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 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
45 yrs teaching to all levels in the UK and abroad. University lecturer in Ancient Greek and Religious Studies since 1990 with extensive experience supporting non-native students at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. Experienced secondary school teacher of languages and humanities, and examiner with several boards. Numerous teaching posts as a private tutor at Common Entrance, secondary and tertiary level (English, foreign languages and humanities), all leading to improved grades and exam success. As the primary carer of a child with special learning needs (Asperger's Syndrome and Dyslexia), I built a home-education programme at primary level, and taught/supervised the learning of key subjects up to GCSE and A level. My pupils have been of all ages, from nursery to retirement and feedback has been consistently and warmly positive.
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.
