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.

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.

Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

German Conversation. Improve your German conversation skills.
I am a native German speaker. The idea is to build your confidence in speaking German. Learning a language is all about communication and building your confidence in using the vocabulary which you have already acquired. Although it is important to learning vocabulary and grammar, it is also very important to improvise with the knowledge that you already have. Improvisation allows communication thus improving your confidence in speaking.

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.

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 long-term job. That's why, I take the time to "learn how to learn" in an efficient way: every exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower. Quality takes precedence over quantity in order to achieve optimal long-term results. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). Another important point: in order for my help to be beneficial, it is necessary for the student to provide regular personal work between lessons. It is essentially a question of rereading notes, redoing exercises similar to those carried out together or even advancing in the learning of vocabulary. For conversation classes: Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. I usually correct at the end of a conversation exercise with detailed feedback, this to avoid blocking and work on fluidity. 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. Feel free to contact me for more information.

In addition to my patience, my kindness and my passion for transmitting the love of languages, my lessons are always adapted to the learner's request. However, you can expect this: - Courses designed by me, whether it's reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar or critical thinking skills. - A follow-up of your progress, the search for your strong points as well as your weak points that we will overcome. - A strong will: I like what I do. I will always be there in the perspective that you achieve your goals. - My particularity? I make a point of pleasant learning. We will implement themes that speak to you, and we will seek your methodology. Everyone can speak languages. After all, don't you already speak French?

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
