Oleg
German as a foreign language, second language for foreigners
The course is particularly useful for students with a foreign background. Since my native language is Russian, I can be particularly helpful to Russian-speaking students. The price for group lessons is reduced. Course in German language. Object grammar in t. ч.

Berta
Law student teaches Spanish classes for children and adults
Do you need Spanish for your studies or your job? Is your child struggling with the Spanish language at school? I offer face-to-face or online classes in Berlin. The lessons are designed according to the communicative approach by practicing speaking, listening, writing and reading. Besides the traditional worksheets, I use comics, games, music, videos in class. ¡Vamos a por ello!

Rüstü
Tutoring / support with e-schooling in all subjects in grades 1-10.
Tutoring in all subjects in grades 1-10 During this difficult time, it is very difficult for the children and the parents to acquire the subject matter for themselves or their children. Either you don't have time to look after and support your child or you simply lack the skills of a teacher. I am happy to help your child in individual and group lessons.

Sandra
German, math, English, French, music, grammar, spelling, fashion marketing
I like to help all students who now need support in homeschooling with their tasks and cannot explain things to themselves without a teacher. I am also happy to help children with tutoring needs. It is important to me to work out a structure with the children so that they do not have to rely on my help in the long term, but learn how to deal with new, unknown and challenging tasks themselves and how to master them successfully, because this also increases motivation and the curiosity about new things, but above all the belief and trust in / in one's own abilities. Up to 10th grade, regardless of the type of school, also upper level by arrangement. Apart from this focus, I am also happy to help in all other age ranges by prior arrangement.

Charline
Homework for English, German, history, philosophy
I graduated from high school in 2019 and studied teaching for a while, but now I'm starting to study social work. I am looking for a spiritual challenge and to make your life a little easier: D For this reason I offer: To do your homework in English, German, history or philosophy. We then agree on the price privately. I look forward to hearing from you! ☺️

Guillaume
French course / literature / philosophy / tutoring
Student in Berlin in master of philosophy, mention TB at the baccalaureate, I speak English and German, and I master Greek and Latin, I offer courses at all levels (primary, middle school, high school and adult) in French, English, literature and philosophy. Especially for French, I favor oral skills and gaining confidence in the language to be learned. Using videos, authentic written or oral documents, I hope that in each hour the four skills are implemented. Speak, write (active), understand text and understand audio. By operating in this way, with the help of textbooks operating by language level, I hope to encourage students and show them that a language can be learned, with gradual and well-defined progress! the goal is to learn little by little, and to trust each other!

Iin
German as a foreign language A1-B2 & exam preparation
I am a qualified teacher of German as a foreign language and have studied and completed German (teaching) in Indonesia. In addition, I obtained the Green Diploma for Teachers at the Goethe Institute in Jakarta and also worked there as a teacher and examiner for several years. I design my lessons in a communicative and fear-free learning atmosphere. Due to current contact restrictions, I only offer classes via Skype or Zoom.

Elvira
German classes at all levels, A1-C2. Children, adults, students, companies
I teach German in all levels and ages. I have also had teaching experience with companies and students, in addition to teaching children and young people. I am always guided by the wishes and skills of the student. This means that everyone is picked up from where they are. Then the knowledge gaps are closed and the skills expanded. We work in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and don't forget that should be learned.

Kevin
Polyglot specialist with 9 years of experience. German in speed mode. Level A1 to C2. No school teaching.
I offer you a German course that is not like the others. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you travel back and forth by train every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Memorise the timetable. 2) Realise that the train comes every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in textbooks and in normal lessons, the first approach is used - in the course I am offering you, it is the second approach because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both pupils and adults who want to learn the German language without time-consuming detours through the madness of fruitless school methods. Learning is easy, but unlearning things that have become bad habits is extremely difficult. This makes it all the more important to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, with my customised lessons you will greatly accelerate the learning process while having a positive attitude. I offer German lessons for individuals or groups (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive science and historical linguistics in particular. My modular programme can be adapted on a case-by-case basis. The converging point of these modules is your independence in spontaneous conversations in real life. What will not be covered in the course: learning lists of verbs; learning lists of nouns with articles; learning words with their translations; flashcards; doing school exercises; following the syllabus of a booklet; imposing the English grammar on the German language. What is particularly important to me: to motivate my student and to give him a learning rhythm; to encourage his creativity; to befriend him with the language; the letters and their sounds; to strengthen the memory by training the phonological loop; to teach blueprints instead of memorising sentences; to explain how the language works in order to make my student independent as quickly as possible; to eliminate common preconceptions, such as that 'der' would mean masculine and 'die' feminine, that the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, that verbs would be irregular, that declension would be random and therefore would have to be learnt with each verb...; to put practice at the centre and only deal with grammar where necessary. A first lesson will give you a sound idea of my pedagogy.

Sebastian
Fun and Effective German course with Money-Back-Guarantee!
I am a German native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides German, I speak English, Swedish, Spanish, French, and Italian. Having learned 6 languages myself, I am 100% convinced that I will successfully teach you German (in a fun and relaxed manner)! I have been teaching since 2018 and am currently one of the most-reviewed teachers on this platform. I encourage you to pause here and have a look at my reviews. I am confident that you too will have a similar view after having had some classes with me. On top of teaching here on Apprentus, I have taught offline group classes for the Volksuniversiteit The Hague (A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands). I also taught for and underwent training with Berlitz, which is one of, if not THE largest language school in the world, operating in over 70 countries and 500+ locations. I am 33 years old, have an honours degree from Leiden University, The Hague, am calm, encouraging, and, most importantly, PATIENT. My main objective in classes is to make the student feel relaxed and at ease. I encourage you to speak without fear of making mistakes. In fact, I celebrate making mistakes. "Why?", you may ask. Well, making mistakes means that you are leaving your comfort zone. You are trying something that you are not already skilled at. You don't choose the easy path! People who never make mistakes are stagnant. Therefore, making mistakes should be CELEBRATED instead of shunned! So, good on you for mispronouncing "Nachmittag (Afternoon)", or using the wrong grammar when making a sentence! Here, let me help you get it right this time! :) Do you already have German knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics, we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can hold presentations about topics of your interests or topics that I provide, we can discuss current events, hold debates, you can write news-paper article summaries, or we deep dive into advanced grammar. Whatever it is that you enjoy and need: We can do it together. All my classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Unless you're a very advanced student, we will work with learning materials created by some of the best publishers for language learning in Germany. These materials serve as a red thread for our course that introduces new words, grammar, and exercises in a good pace and interesting manner which keeps you engaged and motivated. Furthermore, I show you German food, music, and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! Another important factor for me is having a personal connection. Unless you prefer to "stick to business", which is fine as well, we typically start our classes by talking about how the weekend or preceding weekdays have been. I don't see my students as a resource to be extracted, but as people for whom I develop a genuine interest. Over the course of time, we both know what is going on in our respective lives and update each other about small or big life events. Having taught many students for multiple years, I can gladly say that I have made real friends thanks to our classes, some of whom I even have met in real life. I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! So what are you waiting for? Get in touch now to book a first lesson in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn about you, your needs, and your wishes, which will allow us to design the optimal course for you. See you soon! Bis bald! Sebastian

William
Repetitive German language course for all ages and levels
I offer repetitive courses in German and English, according to your school program or simply out of a desire to develop in these languages. Having obtained my gymnasium maturity certificate in June 2020, I have an intermediate level B1 in these two languages with a small advance on English. I have vocabulary in both languages very favorable for improvement in the language we work.

Georgette
German, English, French and Spanish for beginners, intermediate and advanced students
I help for private purposes, business and school. My lessons are mainly result-oriented. It is my intention to achieve maximum results in a pleasant way. In the past I have already helped many children, young people and adults. I adapt to the level and the intended result I keep my lessons varied but still challenging. I do my work with passion and 100% motivation. That is why I have a very good relationship with my students.

Habiba
German language course from scratch / teaching German school curricula. Developing reading, writing, conversation, and listening skills.
The German language is currently in high demand in the labor market, and Germany accepts scholarships for study or work, so learning the German language has become necessary for anyone who wants to study or work at an advanced level. The German language is not difficult, but it requires effort, regularity, and follow-up with the teacher, as well as making sure to attend classes with concentration.
