Personal Description:
Hi!

My name is Simon, I am 27 years old and a native German.
I have been teaching German for private students and at a professional language school for the past five years in Germany, Australia and England.
My university degree is in English Linguistics, and I also speak Spanish and French fluently.

Working as a language trainer has immensely enriched my life experience and filled me with tremendous joy. I truly love languages and would love to be given the chance to keep enthusing students with knowledge about my native language and culture.

Should you be interested in hiring me as a tutor, simply contact me via phone or email. I normally respond within 24 hours.

Teaching Experience:

5 years as a private Tutor and Language Trainer at various professional language schools

Tutoring Approach:

To give my students the confidence to talk, talk, talk. No one has ever learned a language without making mistakes. We were all beginners once.
You won't learn unless you're having fun doing it. Every lesson should be as enjoyable and rich in variety as possible.

Personal Description:
My name is Oliver and I am a 22-year-old student at the University of Warwick, where I study German & History joint honours. I have recently returned from my year abroad in Germany, where I studied not only German language and literature, but also history and French language at the Humboldt University in Berlin. I would describe myself as enthusiastic and friendly.

Teaching Experience:

Between January and June 2012 I volunteered through Warwick Volunteers at a school in Coventry, where I acted as a teaching assistant in a Year 8 French class. I furthermore tutored a then first-year student at the University of Warwick during this time period. She was interested in improving her German language from GCSE-level and so we met for an hour every week in the university library. During the lessons we not only focused on grammar, but also on texts which I provided to widen vocabulary and to understand sentence structure in a real context.

Tutoring Approach:

For me it is important that the tutoring can either be as relaxed or as focused as the student wants it to be. We all have our own individual ways of learning and retaining information, so it is key to understand best how the student learns when approaching a topic. It is also good when students think for themselves, rather than simply soaking up information, and so I tend to encourage this kind of self-sufficiency in learning. I encourage debate and get students to justifying their reasoning and thought, skills which are not only useful for the future but also are more engaging for students.

Personal Description:
I am a fully qualified teacher of German and Spanish who enjoys her job and I am happy to help anyone with their language learning. I graduated with languages and pursued a teaching career and I am now working as a teacher of Modern Languages in a secondary school.

Teaching Experience:

My tutoring career began while I was at university and it has been part of my professional life ever since. I have extensive experience of one-to-one and small group tutoring and I have a thorough knowledge of the Scottish school curriculum including arrangements for Standard Grade, Higher and Advanced Higher exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring is a great way of learning a language because you benefit from full attention of your tutor. I plan and deliver my lessons to be communicative and a source of natural conversations as much as possible. However, I find correct grammar, punctuation, pronunciation and spelling as important as speaking and I do everything possible within my role as a tutor to develop all these skills appropriately.

Personal Description:
I am a tutor of German, French, and Latin because of my first degree, in Classics, and because of my Austrian family connection and the many summers spent in Austria; and because of the advantages I had also with French at school, in that three of my four teachers were Fr nationals. I have worked in Austria(Burgenland, Steiermark, and Vienna) and have translated from these two languages for book and periodical publishers. As well as this I have sung these modern languages and Italian professionally, and having siblings there, I visit the countries at least once annually.

Teaching Experience:

Secondary exper in two schools, in Latin, and Latin and Greek teaching.
Sixth form and Further Ed teaching.
Vacation secondary teaching in Austria over eight years.
Tuition since my own student days.

Tutoring Approach:

Somewhat Socratic in that I expect the pupil to make the maximum use of what he does know, and then add to that.
I believe in going from the known to the unknown. By using "word families" etc I help the pupil to snowball on further vocabulary and usages to his existing store. I emphasise that the pupil must learn to rely on memory. Mine is a pupil-focussed approach.
I think the pupil must understand the nuts and bolts of languages- the mechanics and dynamics, ie must grasp grammar and syntax as far as possible for his age etc.

Personal Description:
After more than twenty years of proven experience as teacher, tutor and social worker with a psychological background I would be the right person for supporting you.

I achieved my UK teaching qualification (PTLLS Level 4, City & Guilds) in July 2012.

I have experience in teaching German, Maths and English since more than 25 years and all my students in the UK have improved at least 2 grades since I have been teaching them.

I have extensive experience in working with students from many backgrounds and abilities.

I demonstrate meticulous attention to detail and have a tremendous amount of empathy.

I deal with students patiently, to advise and support them in a respectful way and tailor my lessons to the individual needs and aims of the student.

Teaching Experience:

I have more than 20 years experience in tutoring, children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I have the ability to motivate children and make them mentally stronger.

I try to find their individual strengths, instead of emphasizing their weaknesses. In this way I support the self- confidence of the child, and enlarge the inner motivation to learn, to study - and to enjoy it.

The most important skills I have are:

my patience, my creativity, my variety of teaching methods and my sense of humor.

Personal Description:
I am 54 years old, I am married with four children. I have a degree ( Joint Honours, 2.1 in Agriculture with Agricultural Economics) and a Cert Ed. I am a member of the Institute for Learning. I have taught a wide range of subjects over 28 years and am able to coach you to success whether you are looking for science, geography, Excel spreadsheets, English as a Foreign Language or even French and German ( I worked in both countries when I was younger)

Teaching Experience:

I can help you prepare for exams in Geography, Biology, Ecology, French and German. I have taught English as a Foreign Language over many years. I can also help you with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, particularly for Business. I am a patient, enthusiastic and committed teacher with 28 years experience particularly with post 16 and adult education. I have taught agriculture and related topics over that time, and very much enjoyed diversifying my teaching portfolio as new courses arose at the college. I have taught a range of biology and geography related topics, including plant and soil science, crop science, crop production, livestock production, environmental issues, ecology, woodland management. In business I have helped many people develop diverse enterprises, preparing carefully costed cash flow projections. I very much enjoy seeing people develop confidence with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, which are an invaluable tool.

Tutoring Approach:

I am convinced that one-to-one tuition is by far the most efficient way in which a person can progress and gain confidence. Often someone can grasp a topic in 5 minutes of one-to-one that would have taken 2 hours to cover with a larger group. Once you are confident with a topic, we move on rapidly to the next one. A current A level tutee of mine told his father "I learnt more in that 2 hour session than I have all term at school" and his headteacher wrote to congratulate him on his improved grades. (The reason for this is not that his teacher is bad, far from it, but a tutor can give you personal one-to-one attention, concentrating on the bits you need) I always ensure that the learners are confident with each step before progressing further.

Personal Description:
I have enjoyed working with children in teaching and pastoral roles for more than seven years. I have completed Level 2 and Level 3 certificates in counselling training, and I am currently working towards my Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling; as a result I have developed valuable listening skills. My other interests include patchwork sewing and baking. I have a calm and gentle approach, and I have a proven ability to make children feel at ease when working with me.

Teaching Experience:

I have seven years experience of working in primary schools across all age-ranges. My various roles have included teaching: all subjects in whole class groups; extra basic skills support in small groups; and one-to-one phonics and spellings lessons. I have helped children to achieve excellent progress in all my roles.

In my experience as a private tutor for almost four years, I have tutored children between the ages of six and eleven, including preparation for SATs and eleven plus tests. I have excellent references which highlight children's significant progress and increased confidence since working with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor tutoring to the individual child, focusing on their strengths and preferred learning styles. I use games to reinforce concepts while making learning enjoyable. I offer rewards, such as stickers and certificates, to motivate and recognise children's achievements. All my lessons are thoroughly planned and prepared, and regular assessment informs planning for later lessons.

Targets are set at an initial meeting and are reviewed on a termly basis, when new targets may be set. A written report is given to parents and carers at the end of each term. Reductions in fees are offered if you are able to pay for a block of lessons in advance.

To give my students the confidence to talk, talk, talk. No one has ever learned a language without making mistakes. We were all beginners once.
You won't learn unless you're having fun doing it. Every lesson should be as enjoyable and rich in variety as possible.

Personal Description:
I am a visiting scholar at Glasgow University at the moment. Originally, I am from Leipzig, Germany, where I completed my diploma in Sociology (equivalent to a Master's degree) with Economics as a minor in 2012. I consider myself a friendly, easy-going and emphatic person. Much of my life is about finding the right balance - especially between mental challenges on the one side, including uni and tutoring, and physical-practical challenges on the other, such as maintaining my bike, hiking and organising a Glaswegian floorball team.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught English since 2010 at a German private tutoring institution in Leipzig (a reference for this can be given upon request). I tutored children aged 10-18 and also adults in English. Combined with my knowledge of German as a native speaker, I feel confident that I can provide essential support in building up a 'practical sense' or feel for the German language.

I have furthermore tutored a reading group and I have been a research assistant for Sociology during my time in Leipzig. Thematically, I consider myself an expert on the sociology of science and sociological theory. If you have theoretical essays to write about Marx, Weber or Bourdieu, I can definitely provide competent and quick help. Right now, I am a research assistant at the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) at the University of Glasgow.

Tutoring Approach:

Obviously, the starting point for learning any language is Grammar. I consider Grammar very important in its own right. However, it should just be a means, the key if you will, to a well-written and well-spoken foreign language. My approach to language treats grammar as a means to acquire German pactically.

What I try to do in my tutoring is to connect the interests of the tutee (general interests, hobbies, books or events that catch the tutees attention) as much as possible with the topic at hand. This is to facilitate the learning process and make it pleasant as possible. I know that many tutees do not wish to go to yet 'another teacher' or to 'another kind of school' after their actual school time, so I try my best to create a relaxed learning atmosphere. I furthermore try actively to search and give 'real-world' examples for grammar or text composition rules, for example from German newspapers, TV shows or books.

For me, this 'soft' approach to tutoring (albeit with a very strict core intention) is the best way to simulateously raise the grade level and the level of interest of a tutee in a language. One further point to add to that picture would be that I normally try to avoid frontal tutoring. It usually is much more engaging and exciting (and especially in terms of foreign languages which have to be spoken regularly) both everyone involved when there is an intense dialogue and extensive speaking involved, especially when it comes to reasoning and interpretations.

I know that the fit between a tutee and a tutor is of vital success to the tutoring process and that not everything can be derived from this description in advance. Thats why I give everybody interested a try-out hour of tutoring (that means all that has to be paid are the fees for UK tutors for 1 hr of my usual rate). This is mainly for you to get an impression of me and for myself to gather intial information about your level of German and determining your tutoring needs. You can decide after that hour whether you want to have me as your tutor.

Personal Description:
I`m a young and motivated German Native Speaker who offers German tuition at all levels (Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced, GCSE, A-Levels, Business) for children and adult learners.

Prices per hour start from 15.00 (depending on how far I need to travel amongst other things) and are negotiable depending on the circumstances.

I'm currently available in the Reading, Berkshire, area (Calcot, West Reading, Tilehurst, Caversham, Emmer Green, Central Reading as well as Burghfield) but also take on students from Earley, Winnersh, Wokingham, and other towns in the area. I offer lessons during the day and evenings on weekdays and weekends, however, I currently don't have any availability in the evenings during the week.

Teaching Experience:

I have worked as a German Teaching Assistant at Theale Green Community School, teaching A-level students one-on-one, small groups of GCSE students, and assisting teachers during German lessons, preparing presentations and assignments. I have also volunteered as an English teacher in Lithuania.

I started working as a self-employed private tutor in March 2013.

I have a German Diploma (equivalent of an English MA) in International Cultural and Business Studies and have obtained the City & Guilds Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) Course in early February 2013, which qualifies me to teach adults.

Tutoring Approach:

I very much tailor my lessons to the individual student's needs and teaching methods and materials can always be adjusted depending on the circumstances. I teach in a fun and engaging way, motivating my students through my enthusiasm for teaching and German.

Personal Description:
My name is Suzanne and I am 39 years old. I have a degree from Oxford University in French and Linguistics and a PGCE from Queen's in Belfast. I am half French and have lived in France and Belgium. I have always loved language-learning and am passionate to communicate to others the benefits of being able to speak another language. It opens our horizons and makes travel abroad much more rewarding. I have a wide range of teaching experience and love what I do.

Teaching Experience:

I taught in secondary schools for five years in Oxford and London. I had classes in French from Key Stage 3 - 5; German at KS 3 - 4 and English at KS 3 and 4. After a break of a number of years to be with my children, I set up as a private tutor and have been running a successful business since 2008. I have done sessions with large and small groups in nurseries and run after-school groups for primary-age children, including families with siblings of different ages. I have tutored all the main exam boards at GCSE and A level for French, as well as 13+ scholarship papers for Independent Schools boards. I have coached adults studying for Open University and worked with many adults of all levels on conversational French and German. I am familiar with the methodology and course material used in schools and am well practised in helping students to fill in gaps and to feel more at ease in these subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to make the sessions as enjoyable as possible, while making sure we maximise the use of time to target the specific skills area. We all learn best when we feel relaxed and motivated. For younger learners, I use a lot of games, songs and stories. When it comes to students, I make sure I find out exactly which areas they are most concerned about and make a plan with them as to how we will work. Building confidence is usually a key area of development. One-to-one lessons are ideal for consolidating grammar points or practising assessment pieces, especially orals in languages. For adults, I take my lead from the preferences of the client, but I like to use cultural material such as music, video and current affairs. I use a wide range of support material and am always looking into new resources. I make sure my lessons are varied and relevant.

Personal Description:
I am a Cambridge graduate and have been a qualified teacher of languages (French and German) and English as an Additional Language for four years, working in secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I enjoy working with all age groups from primary children to GCSE, A Level and degree level. I have also trained and worked as a translator specialising in business and financial translations, and continue to do so on a freelance basis.

Teaching Experience:

I completed my PGCE at the University of Birmingham in 2009 and have been teaching for the last 4 years at secondary schools in Harrow and St Albans. I have taught French and German to all secondary age groups from years 7 to 13, including a number of GCSE and A Level groups. I have good knowledge of examination requirements, including GCSE controlled assessments.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring style is tailored to the needs of the individual student. Generally, I try to create a balance between the different language skills such as writing and speaking, as well as including vocabulary and grammar work. With exam students in particular, I focus on the syllabus requirements including preparation for the controlled assessment tasks at GCSE and the A Level speaking exams. I also work on exam skills and techniques for listening, reading and memorisation. An important part of my work is boosting students' confident and making lessons enjoyable as well as productive.
I tutor from home or can travel to you, dependent on location.

Personal Description:
Hi, my name is Christiane and I am German. I have been living in the UK for the last 6 years. I am a very reliable and approachable, but professional and trustworthy at the same time. I am always honest and work very hard to achieve my targets. I am sure I can help you to achieve the results that you were looking for and with my support, learning German or English will be just a positive and enjoyable experience.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Teaching Experience:

I have been giving German lessons to students of any age for 5 years. My students are normally preparing university exams, GSCE, business people or simply people who enjoy to learn the language in order to be independent and confident when traveling to Germany.

Teaching English is something I also very enjoy. My students are normally people who want to live here for a few years or even for the rest of their life.

Tutoring Approach:

After initial assessment we will decide together how and how often I will teach you or your children. I make learning fun with games etc.
Motivation is probably the most important factor that educators can target in order to
improve learning. Student motivation is an essential element that is necessary for quality education and as far as I can, I try to adapt the lessons approach according students needs and target to be reached.

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself. My name is John. I graduated from Sheffield University in the 1970s where I studied French and German. It was while teaching in a lycee in South West France as part of my course that I really developed a love of language and foreign travel. I subsequently went on to Liverpool University where I obtained a postgraduate teaching qualification. My teaching career extended over a number of years in a variety of schools in the public and private sector, including a spell as head of languages. In 2002 I studied to teach English as a foreign language. I was surprised to discover that teaching my native language in all its complexities gave me a valuable insight into teaching other languages, not just my own.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned the majority of my teaching lay in mainstream education, where exam preparation was of great importance. In addition, I have enjoyed teaching adults at evening and day classes. I currently teach English as a foreign language to home-stay visitors, but my main efforts are concentrated on private tuition to school children or adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Language learning can be easy, as long as it is varied and well structured. My basic method involves firstly presenting to the student the required vocabulary and grammatical structures, and then familiarizing him or her with them; this can be achieved through verbal drills, short exercises, word games etc. Once they are reasonably well acquired, they are put into a more practical context, imitating as far as possible real life situations e.g. 'asking directions in the street'.For this I use role play, sometimes involving what is called 'information gap', where the student must find out some practical piece of information solely by using the foreign language involved. Many students come to me because, simply put, they have lost the plot! Either they have experienced poor teaching or, for whatever reason, they have become de-motivated. In this case I would spend additional time practising verb formations etc - it is often grammatical structures which have fallen by the wayside.
My overall approach is friendly, but with high expectations. New tutees receive the first lesson free of charge, so that an assessment can be made as to the teaching required.
