German lessons for GCSE and A-Level students from Cambridge graduate

I have been teaching German to GCSE and A-Level students since graduating from the University of Cambridge in 2012 with a a degree (now MA [Hons]) in Modern Languages. I focus on speaking and grammar, and reintroducing a love of the language, which sadly seems to be missing from many schools. When we get closer to the exam period, I focus on exam technique and giving the examiners what they are looking for.

My exam guide for GCSE Spanish and German students have been published and are currently available on Amazon, and I am also the designer for these courses on the study app and website Study Rocket!

About Me

I work as an actor, writer and director in London. Having graduated with a degree and MA (Hons) in Modern Languages from Cambridge, I have taught languages, sport, and drama in Britain and Latin America and also worked extensively in Theatre in Education. Many of my GCSE students carry on to A-Level because of their new-found skills and love of the subject, and 100% of my A Level tutees have got into their first choice universities, including Oxbridge. I have worked as a journalist in Mexico and London, as well as in radio in Argentina, Cambridge and London. I am also a published author, recently releasing an exam guide for GCSE Spanish and GCSE German students available on Amazon, as well as the course designer for study app and website Study Rocket.

I believe that every student is unique and should be treated as such, with the lessons structured according to the individual’s needs and goals. I like to establish a good rapport and to create a different environment to school, in which one can learn with enjoyment, and without fear of mistakes.

Andrés
Online course for German as a foreign language with all material included
In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.

Kevin
Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Hi, my name is Sophie and I am a recent graduate in International and European Law at the university of Groningen. My mother tongue is German, but I also speak English and Italian fluently and am currently learning Dutch and Spanish. I would like to help you improve your conversational German, writing, pronounciation, grammar & co. My whole school career I focused on learning languages and as language student I know what difficulties one faces, therefore I can give plenty of study tips and grammar advice.

I have experience in homework supervision and day care but also teach adults for a while now. Feel free to contact me, for any further information.

GERMAN LESSONS BEGINNERS CHILDREN/ TEENS (taught in English or French)
Do you want your children/teens to immerse themselves in the German language? The German lessons are usually taught in English in small groups (but can also be taught in French if the student doesn't know the English language). Private lessons can also be organised both in German (beginners) and in English (all levels). Children are said to be fast learners; through the interactive activities, they will be eager to learn the language, remember what they learned and apply their language skills in real life context. Why learn German? German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union. German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It's always a huge advantage to know the German Language when working in Europe and even in non-European countries, most of the time, employers will look after employees who can speak many languages and in particular German. Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate your child/teenager in one of my classes. :-)

Maria
German speaking classes for all levels with me. Tailor-made tuition concentrated on speaking and understanding.
High-effective German-speaking tuition on the Internet with a webcam simply from home for everyone who wants to learn quickly and effectively with confidence! I am a great experienced believer in speaking the language right from the start of your language learning journey. Many people have the attitude that first, they must learn all the grammar and huge amounts of vocabulary before they could ever be ready to start to get in a conversation. People are often scared of getting into awkward situations where they have no clue how to express what they want to say, leaving them only with blank expressions on their faces. With my experience in language learning and teaching, I can teach you to speak and write with confidence in German. The correct mindset and you see the development on yourself. With conversations, stories, audios, videos, worksheets, flashcards, and speaking together progress is made successfully! My classes are concentrated more on speaking, listening, and understanding. They can be specialized for your school, job, business, or exams. I adapt my lessons individually to the learning pace of my students. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Sebastian
German beginner/intermediate group course for adults and young adults
Hallo und willkommen! Ich heiße Sebastian und bin 31 Jahre alt. I currently work as a Swedish teacher at the Volksuniversiteit The Hague and I LOVE every minute I can spend with my students. A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands. I am a German native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides German, I speak English, Swedish, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned multiple languages myself I am sure that I can successfully teach you German in a fun and relaxed manner. My teaching focus lies on speaking the language as much as possible. Immersion is key to language learning. Think of small children. They are language geniuses. Why? Because they speak as soon as their brains permit them to speak, without worrying about making mistakes. Therefore, it is paramount to start using the newly learned words immediately in order to prime our brains to get comfortable with the new language. My classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with other students and me. I put a special focus on providing space for you to interact with the other students in a fun and engaging manner, making sure that you will have the opportunity to use the newly learned words and grammatical concepts. 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! I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! My past and current students would testify to that (Look at the kind reviews I have received on my profile!). I look forward to hearing from you! Ich freue mich, von dir zu hören! Greetings, Grüße, Sebastian
