MacIej
GCSE : Mathematics , Chemistry , Physics & English
I've completed my GCSEs a little over a year ago , I'm on here to fund myself in the future (primarily university) . I've averaged above an A (above grade 7) overall with recent experience and am still attending sixth form . Because of this I'll be able to easily relate to and figure out the needs of my tutee as I was in their position not too long ago . I myself studied based on topic rather than necessarily textbooks , this means that I can make due with any textbook or other material (this accounts for difference in exam boards). I can teach a concept from the ground up , or to solidify knowledge on topics as well as teach the basic principles for understanding the topic in the first place . I'm especially good at understanding and taking advantage of mark schemes to maximise grades , despite if the topic is completely unbeknownst to you . Though this seems minor , this tactic means you'll almost never score zero marks on a question . Ergo : if you can do half of the questions on a 100 mark test you'll get around 50 marks (high C to low B grade , grade 5 to 6) however even without understanding the rest it's easy to get at least another 15 marks up to around 25 (you usually cannot get over half marks without getting close to the answer , which is why half the remaining marks is a typical maximum) putting your grade up to to a minimum of a strong B or a maximum of a solid A (min of a grade 6 and max of grade 8) all of which requires minimal work which you won't forget . In English a similar thing can be done with punctuation , so long as you use a type of punctuation once ; you can score easy additional marks and get more marks on other criteria due to the examiner's bias . This is my forté .

Explore the diverse cultures of the Arab world, and learn their language
It’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to learn Arabic by transcribing words instead of learning the alphabet first. Think about how we learned English back in school. First, you learn your letters, then you form those letters into words, then you learn how to form sentences, and then you learn more about proper syntax and grammar. Taking shortcuts will only slow you down. The best way to learn a new word is to see it, hear it, write it and speak it, so combine those activities as much as you can.

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.

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
