I love travelling and discovering different cultures. Another passion of mine is cooking as I think the kitchen is a very creative and inspiring place
I have been working as a freelance online German teacher for the last 2 and half years and have taught students at all levels, from beginner to proficiency. I have also taught in companies such as Rolls Royce. I teach both one to one classes as well as small groups and teach German for business and general German. I have also worked in a 6th form college as well as two secondary schools in the UK, one of which had its own 6th form. Therefore I have experience in teaching German and French at key stage 3, 4 and 5 (GCSE and A-level - only German at key stage 5). I am familiar with both the new GCSE as well as the new A-level specifications in German and I can help you to gain the best result and be successful in your final exam.
It would also be pleasure for me to help you improve your German for work purposes.
I feel that I can provide you great support when learning functional language. I can also support your learning with a lot of authentic resources such as videos, films, and texts. Having grown up and worked in Germany, I can also provide you with an introduction to working in a German-speaking environment.
Learning a foreign language is both exciting and challenging. It is a holistic process which needs time and passion. In my opinion mistakes are very important during this learning process. Making mistakes is very normal and actually necessary when learning a language. Everybody also has their own pace when improving language skills. Therefore I use mistakes very constructively and help you to learn from them at your own individual pace.
I also think that speaking a foreign language without fear and with confidence is the most important step for success and I can help you lose any fears you might have when speaking a foreign language.
I can help you to improve all four skills you need to learn a language: listening, writing, speaking and reading as well as providing you with the understanding grammar to progress in these areas.
