Online or 1-to-1 German classes in Worthing (West Sussex)

I am an experienced German teacher, who taught for the last 5 years online and 1 to 1 lessons for a language centre (Brighton) The lessons are individually tailored, we will work on all 4 skills: speaking, writing, listening and reading. Lessons will be tailored around your individual language needs.
We work usually with a book from A1 - C1 and then with media (news articles and materials/videos from the internet). Lessons will be a mixture of reading texts and then answering questions or discussing the topic, listening exercises and free speaking. You also can read books (easy reader) or bring your own materials to the lessons. I teach grammar in context with texts, not independently. But students will develop in time a concept of the various elements in a sentence (pronoun, verb, preposition, adjective, noun, adverb etc) and get a clear picture of sentence structure (main and subordinate clauses and placement of verbs). Still, the main focus will be on conversation, students will immerse in the fascinating world of German words and expressions, doing role plays and practicing day to day situations. Developing not only their language skills but also their fantasy and improvisation skills.

About Me

I started playing Violin as a 6 years old kid in Switzerland and was so fascinated by the training, sound of the instrument and musical activities, that I made a career out of it. Studying on a BMus at SAMP (Swiss Academy of Music Pedagogics) and graduating with an Advanced Diploma in Performance. I then went to London to study a PDOT at the Guildhall School of M & D.

Education

BMus Music, Advanced Diploma in Performance, PDOT (Violin, Conducting), Foundation Diploma in Acting ( City Lit), CertTESOL Trinity College ( Language Teacher), LLB Law student 3rd year (University of Essex Online)

Experience / Qualifications

I was teaching in the UK students of all ages, preparing them for ABRSM Grade Exams and organising also student concerts/events which were a lot of fun. In 2010 I taught at the Edward Said Conservatory in Palestine, which was a different kind of experience. It involved besides music also social engagement, helping teenagers to focus their energies onto creating music rather than being angry about their social/political situation. Learning an instrument gives really a chance to refocus energies in a creative way which can have besides being enjoyable and inspiring also a therapheutic value. I have played a lot of chamber music, (on youtube) and recorded also a music video with the Clan of Celts 'please don't send me home' me venturing into various other musical styles, from fiddle music to rock and pop to metal (Serpentyne). I think it is important that students develop their own style, improvisation and playing off score is as much part of the lesson as learning to read music and understand/appreciate already written works. But creative freedom is a very important concept in my lessons , transferrable to other areas in life too.

We have made an excellent choice in engaging with Silvia. Silvia possesses a warm and friendly method of teaching and is an excellent subject matter expert in her field. We are relocating to a German speaking nation, so I would recommend Silvia for anyone seeking knowledge of German language without hesitation.

Easy French lessons to improve your French so you can travel on your own.
I like to ask the students what they would like to learn from my lessons. What are their goals. I think it's really important to be on the same page, so we can work in the same direction together and it makes things easier. I can adapt easily to different kind of teachings. People are different and they don't always have the same way to learn. I can start from the basics (learning how to pronounce the letters right, feminine and masculine of words, grammar, verbs, etc.) I can only teach oral lessons if is what the person wants. I like working with a lot of examples and visuals.

Phillip
Private French lessons for adults and teenagers with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
For the past two decades, I've had the privilege of tutoring in both French and English. My students have ranged in age, background, and origin, spanning children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and even seniors aged 85 and above. You might wonder why I teach both languages. Well, I am bilingual, with American and Swiss/French roots, and I currently reside in Ireland. This unique blend of experiences equips me with a strong and relevant teaching approach. I possess an intimate understanding of both cultures, enabling me to tailor my classes to the specific needs of my students. My teaching journey began during my time studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland. I started offering private French and English lessons to supplement my income, and I quickly discovered my passion for it. Even after graduating and embarking on a full-time career, I couldn't bear to give up this rewarding activity. I cherished the opportunity to connect with diverse individuals and assist them in achieving their language goals. In my teaching methodology, interactivity takes center stage. I employ a variety of engaging learning tools, including photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, and more. My approach is highly adaptable, with a focus on addressing each student's unique priorities. Some seek to refine their pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary, while others require assistance with presentations or speeches for school or work. Some simply aspire to acquire a new language to enrich their general knowledge. I also specialize in teaching younger children, a testament to my educational background and experience. What you will gain from my courses extends beyond impeccable pronunciation and enhanced vocabulary and grammar. You'll also acquire a profound understanding of the culture associated with each language. When speaking a language, it's essential to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nations where it thrives. French and English are spoken as primary languages in numerous countries worldwide, each with its own unique accent and cultural nuances. The learning process is limitless! In addition to my language instruction, I'm a genealogist and host spiritual (non-religious) seminars in the beautiful West of Ireland. My passion for vegetarian and vegan cuisine adds a flavorful dimension to my life. Furthermore, I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have operated a private "Before & Afterschool" facility along with Summer Camps catering to children aged 4 to 12 for many years. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of meeting and working with you!

Giorgia
Italian language lessons from a native speaker - any level
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

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.

Elise
Private German lessons by qualified academic
University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Letters in German with specialization in medieval languages and literature) with a solid experience, gives private German lessons for all levels. Lessons adapted to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate notions, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gymnasiums, university, Bachelor level and Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and/or learn the language. For school supports: Above all, this is long-term work. This is why I take the time to "learn how to learn" effectively: every exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower. Quality takes priority over quantity in order to obtain optimal long-term results. Students bring their own course materials (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 to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on oral comprehension. The student must bring their own exam preparation brochure, available in all bookstores. For Goethe Institute model exams, the exam books from Cornlesen are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download and print before the start of the course a copy of the Goethe Institute exam available on the institute's website. For the oral comprehension: Work from audio-visual viewings downloaded from the Deutsche Welle site, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. In the long term, the student acquires ease not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I also work on the Goethe Institut oral tests to familiarize myself with speaking. 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, every lesson involves preparation time before and after the lesson, particularly for the work that I correct. My goal being to design an individualized course, I take the time necessary to write detailed comments on corrected work or advice to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside of class by email if necessary. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Regarding the nature of the lessons, naturally these are the ones that are adapted to the student, taking into account what their needs are and the objectives of the tasks, which can be treated in various ways depending on the methods that the student and teacher use. forming. The idea is to put everything based on the student, so that they feel comfortable, content and patient, things that are very necessary for learning and teaching.
