Learning by Doing - English made practical for Beginner and Advanced levels alike!

Looking for an English course that gives results? Always wanted to have a conversation with a native speaker that lasted longer than, "Nice weather we're having?" and "Sorry, my English not good"? Sound familiar? Then look no further! Get ready to learn from a native speaker and become a student of Learning by Doing!

Whether it be for school, work or in their personal life, many people find English language competency an essential skill to have nowadays. The quality of second language English education at school level doesn't seem to cut it in practice and many people find themselves asking, "what's missing?".

My course proposes a new and intuitive method of learning language by changing the way we learn. Instead of learning from a book, in today's world of instant gratification, social media and information overload, I find a practical approach to learning language provides the learner with a useful skill that they can use for the rest of their lives.

In this course, you will learn how to increase your vocabulary exponentially, improve writing skills and, most importantly, you will learn how to speak English like a native speaker! My lessons provide a safe environment for the learner to practice English where they can apply the things they learn and not feel judged or tested. The biggest contributor to success is confidence, and in my course we will work together to improve your confidence in English so you too can speak like a native speaker!

Each course is personalized for the individual. From Beginner to University level, anyone can participate in my course and see improvement in their competency. All it takes is the will for improvement and you will feel the difference.

Extra information

All you need for this course is a notepad, a pen and the desire to improve!

About Me

I am a university student, studying Teaching at the University of Bonn.

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, I moved to Germany after completing high school. Once here, I taught myself German through the same method that I teach: Practical Application. After only 6 months I was able to attend a B2 level German course, and passed with flying colours. After spending some time working, I decided to attend university, and took the required language exams for University level German (C1 level). Since then, I have been a student of English and Computer Science.

Learning has been my passion since I can remember, and as I pursue a career in teaching, I hope to bring my love of knowledge and learning to those who hope to learn from me.

Education

South African Matriculate in 2017. I then began my studies in the school of the real world. I taught myself German in 9 months, and am currently attending University with the aim to get a Teaching Degree.

Experience / Qualifications

I currently study Teaching at the University of Bonn. Although my formal education in teaching is currently a work in progress, I feel my ability as a native speaker and experience in learning languages practically is all I (Or anyone else) needs.

Reviews (1)

Robert ist sehr zuverlässig, engagiert und nett. Er hatte einen sehr guten Zugang zu meinem Sohn, der sofort gerne mit ihm zusammengearbeitet hat. Toller Unterricht von einem Muttersprachler, der sehr gut Deutsch kann, aber sinnvoller Weise ausschließlich auf Englisch unterrichtet. Neben dem aktuellen Schulthema gibt es beim Unterricht auch Raum für Themen, für die sich mein Sohn interessiert, die dann auf Englisch besprochen werden – hierdurch macht es meinem Sohn noch einmal mehr Spaß. Danke!!!

Tutoring / support for school in the main subjects
I am studying English and history at the University of Cologne as a master's degree. Due to the current situation, I offer online lessons / support for all major subjects, as well as history & French via "Zoom". I am looking for tutoring students who I can help to improve their grades or who can support them in their daily school stress. I have years of experience as a tutor and am always looking forward to new challenges. I am an open-minded, patient and flexible person.

Sebastian
Top-Rated 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)! Therefore, I offer a money-back guarantee: Should you not be satisfied with the results of a course with me, I will reimburse you! 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 which 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 wishes, which will allow us to design the optimal course for you. See you soon! Bis bald! Sebastian

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!

Highly adaptable English teacher . I do not really prefer one teaching method, or one way of interacting with the learners . Because in my opinion, each student is different.
