Exam-focussed German tuition tailored to your needs

Tuition:
I offer exam-focussed German tuition for GCSE and A-Level students, as well as tuition for students completing their bachelor degrees and anyone looking to expand their skillset by learning German.

Seeing students grow in confidence as they achieve their goals is my motivation in tutoring. Part of this process involves tailoring the learning methods to the individual's strengths and needs. For instance, a dyslexic German learner will benefit greatly from the use of spoken and visual aids.

About me:
I started learning German in secondary school and went on to study Art History in German Literature in German at the Humboldt-University in Berlin, receiving a first class degree. For four years I lived, studied and worked in Germany, meaning that my vocabulary covers many mundane everyday situations, as well as academic study of art and literature.

I also offer tuition through Skype.

Elise
German tutoring by graduate university
University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Arts in German with specialization in Medieval Languages and Literature) with a solid experience gives private German lessons for all levels. Courses adapted according to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gyms, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or learn about language. For school supports: It is above all a work on the long term. Therefore, any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: the quality is priority to the quantity in order to obtain an optimal result in the long term. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). It is important to note that only my presence and my explanations are not enough to obtain satisfactory results. That's why I take the time to "learn to learn" effectively. For conversation classes: Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. Depending on the level of the students and / or their expectations (preparation exams / assessments / desire for improvement for example), I work on the choice of appropriate words, grammatical accuracy, the ability to formulate more or less complex sentences. For exam preparations: The courses offer to acquire solid tools to learn how to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on the oral comprehension. The student will have to bring his own booklet of exam preparations available in all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute examinations, the Cornlesen exam books are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course an examination copy of GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself. For the oral comprehension: work from visual audio views downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE website, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term fluency not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I am also working on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize with oral. For the work of the written expression: I begin by explaining in the first lesson some methodological tools to acquire writing skills. The student has the opportunity to start writing during the course or do a writing exercise on duty and give it to me to correct (send by email or at the beginning of the next lesson). The corrections are explained in detail. In addition, at the time of booking, the student can send me a draft copy before the lesson so that I can meet his needs even more quickly. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, especially for the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside the course by email if necessary.

Fun and effective German classes, Brighton and online
I believe the best way to learn a new language is through natural interaction and I believe that the more fun and informative this interaction is, the more effectively you can learn. You will see that each class is individually adapted to your personal learning style and that you can improve at your optimal level, because you will always be challenged but never overwhelmed. I am an enthusiastic language learner myself and know the importance of a fun and knowledgeable teacher. Because I enjoyed learning with such great teachers so much, I'm committed to be that for my students in each class as well. So with this German class, you will get • a very competent, patient, and fun tutor with years of experience • a very supportive environment • as much opportunity as possible to actually speak German, reflect on it, and improve • 3-4 hrs of homework per lesson • heaps of audio and video material as well as many exercises to help you practise all aspects of the German language • and you will get to see how manageable the German grammar can actually be! Of course, you can adjust the classes to whatever you consider to be most relevant for you! If you like my approach and would like to start your (next) German adventure, please don't hesitate and let me know! I would love to help you with your German, whether in person or online! ps: You can start right away at any level!
