Tutoring

 

Learning a new language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about them. I provide learner-centric tutoring for German language learners from A1-C2 (Beginner to Advanced). Together we will discover the fun and quirks of language learning while ensuring your personal goals are achieved. My individual tutoring approach includes:

  • Identifying with each student individual language learning goals to define a realistic, yet challenging study roadmap.

  • Providing planning tools and teach learning skills that aid the personal style of the learner using efficient and fun German language learning materials.

  • Aligning individual learning programs with specific study themes, individual grammar challenges, personal interests as well as topics relevant to primary, secondary or sixth form curriculums.

  • Supporting students, who would like to study in Germany, to meet UNI-specific matriculation criteria preparing for DSD I and II / telc examinations.

  • PLUS the added benefit of a native German teacher, who can help each student reach an excellent fluency level in spoken and written language.

Teaching

 

I am a qualified (QTS) modern foreign languages teacher with a PGCE from Leeds Beckett University and experienced in teaching bilingual and non-native children.

  • I have been working for DSSG - the German Saturday School Greenwich - for the past 5+ years where I have been teaching native and foreign learners, across A1-B2 and combine native and foreign language pedagogy and use authentic and textbook-based learning materials differentiated to meet the learning needs within learner groups of different ability levels. A strong focus is on speaking and writing, the two most underdeveloped skills for natives and foreign language learners. 

  • For students in secondary schools with the aspiration to achieve top grades at their German GCSE and A-Level, my lesson concept also offers an additional opportunity for revision, practice and conversation with a native German teacher across the main topics of the German curriculum.

  • I have been teaching German to pupils across key stages 3-5 (age 11-18) at leading Grammar Schools in the South East of London. and previously worked with younger students in KS2 through my German after school club.
