About Me

If I had to describe myself as a tutor: I'm modern, fun and stick to interactive learning, meaning there are always some exercises, readings, games or something involved to practice what we learn. Also, I teach through Power Point Presentations, which is way more effective as it embraces visual learning. The reason why I'm tutoring is because teaching is fun and interaction between different cultures possibly the best thing ever.

Education

German Abitur / High School Diploma with major in German, English, French and Politics.
Currently in Bachelor of International and European Law at the Hague University of Applied Sciences.

Experience / Qualifications

Kids: First Aid Qualification, Baby Sitting Course
My tutoring experience accumulates to 5 years since the middle of High School. Mostly, I taught German, English and prepared students for exams. Recently I started teaching students 18+, which has proven to be great as well!

Patient and helpful, recommended
This class is for students of all ages who want to prepare for an exam. Together with you, we will go through sessions so make sure you get amazing grades - or at least they will definitely improve! Generally, I tutor for exams in English, German, History, Geography, Politics, Law, Religion ... as those are the ones I would have knowledge and qualifications in. Depending on the material you have to know, we will have systematic exercises, memorizations and all kinds of things to make you (or your kid) know everything crucial for the exam.
You need to write a letter or resume in German? You are going to work in Germany and need to improve your professional skills? Or are you a student that wants to learn a formal way of addressing people in German? Then search no longer, this course is for you! In this course I will teach you how to write a CV, letter, resume, formal emails etc. correctly in German. We will learn how to address elders, teachers and employers and how to initiate business conversations. On request, we can also cover specific skills such as how to write technical pieces, essays or legal texts.

Elise
German tutoring by graduate university
University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Arts in German with specialization in Medieval Languages and Literature) with a solid experience gives private German lessons for all levels. Courses adapted according to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gyms, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or learn about language. For school supports: It is above all a work on the long term. Therefore, any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: the quality is priority to the quantity in order to obtain an optimal result in the long term. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). It is important to note that only my presence and my explanations are not enough to obtain satisfactory results. That's why I take the time to "learn to learn" effectively. For conversation classes: Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. 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 how to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on the oral comprehension. The student will have to bring his own booklet of exam preparations available in all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute examinations, the Cornlesen exam books are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course an examination copy of GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself. For the oral comprehension: work from visual audio views downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE website, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term fluency not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I am also working on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize with oral. 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, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, especially for the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside the course by email if necessary.

German and English private lessons for beginners and intermediates.
Are you looking for a German or English teacher? I am not only an experienced language tutor but most of all, big languages lover. When teaching, I try to use creative and interesting methods to understand the language. If only you wish to have language classes in a nice atmosphere with a strong focus on effective learning, my methods could help you to learn grammar and vocabulary faster and encourage you to speak.

Help: strengthen your knowledge of German in Paris
Currently studying literature in Germany, I offer a German course for all levels. I can accompany a beginner in his learning of this beautiful and complex language. I am also able to help more advanced students in the mastery of the language and also to discover the Germanic culture. Learning this language for eleven years, I am able to transmit a method that is both interesting and rigorous. I can also help with the preparation of the German Baccalaureate exams.

Sebastian
German course for adults, students or kids! (All skill levels)
Guten Tag! Do you want to learn or improve German? Do you or does your child need to prepare for exams at school or University? I am a German native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides German I speak English, Swedish, Spanish and Italian. Having learned multiple languages myself I am sure that I can successfully teach you German in a fun and relaxed manner. My focus lies on speaking the language from day one. Immersion is key to language learning. Think of small children. They are language geniuses. Why? Because they speak as soon as their brains permit them to speak, without worrying about making mistakes. Therefore, it is paramount to start using the newly learned words immediately in order to prime our brains to get comfortable with the new language. Do you already have German knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics with focus on grammar and vocabulary, we can design a classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. My classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Furthermore, I show you the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! I look forward to hearing from you! Best wishes, Sebastian

Conversing in Swiss German at work
Swiss-German is the first language spoken at work in Switzerland. Perfectly bilingual, I worked for more than 15 years in German-speaking Switzerland in managerial positions. If you are brought to speak this language in your work, we can practice together by - 30 min. (or 60 min.) on Skype - 60 min. at the student's home or other place of his choice * To you to share with me your topics (sales, administrative questions, job interview), failing that I will bring topics adapted to your professional context.

I am currently a masters student in Brussels, studying Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Solvay. I have years of experience teaching English as a foreign language, as well as German levels 1 and 2. The focus of the class will be based on the students needs. I specialize in essay writing, grammar, pronunciation and speaking practice.

German tutoring for children and adults, and tutoring for primary and secondary students I and II.
Graduated with a Master in Foreign Languages Applied to International Trade, I offer German courses for children and adults, as well as tutoring classes for primary and secondary students I and II. I worked for 20 years in the field of Marketing and Communication in Paris, London and Geneva. I lived for 1 year in Germany and worked for 15 years with German-speaking Switzerland. My hobbies are teaching and traveling. My teaching method adapts to your needs. Whether you are beginner or intermediate level, we can together determine your curriculum. The method can be structured with grammar and syntax courses, if you want to progress in writing. If you want conversation classes, the method can be more fluid with themes chosen together and pronunciation exercises. I teach the following types of courses: - Classical tutoring classes to improve your grades. - courses of preparation for examinations. - Business-oriented language courses (job interview, CV, business dialogue, writing letters and e-mails).

English and German courses: individual or group
Making it easy for you to learn a foreign language through dialogue (Skype, phone or face-to-face at home) is my goal. I adapt to your level by offering courses in English, French and German. These language classes last half an hour or an hour. I also adapt to your request, whether you are a student or need to develop specific language skills.

Daniëlle
Biology, chemistry, Dutch, English, German and history tutor
Is it not going at school as you had hoped? No worries! I'm going to help you! Tutoring often helps enormously to understand those difficult subjects. We walk through the material together, so you can ask as many questions as you want. We are also working on exercise assignments, so that you immediately receive feedback. The most important thing here is not the correct answer, but precisely how you arrive at that answer. As a result, you not only learn that difficult part, but also how to solve other difficult questions. In addition to tutoring, I also teach study skills and homework guidance. For example, do you find it difficult to start learning? Then you can beat two birds with one stone! I give tutoring in the subjects biology, chemistry, history, Dutch, English and German. I achieved high marks for all these subjects at the VWO. Moreover, I continued to use these courses actively during my studies in Dutch and biology.

Vittoria
English, Italian, French and German history art and language
Since a young age I fell in love with languages and different currents of literature. I grew up listening to my mom speaking French and my dad speaking German. I am conducting my BA at Leiden University in English, I learnt Mandarin, and am now studying Arabic. I would like not only to help with test preparation or schoolwork: I want to give as much as I can of the beauty and life that is in languages. I try to trigger interest and engagement, I give homework after every session, feedback, wrap ups and extra material. In Milan, where I grew up, my grandmother would read for me good night stories in French and Spanish. I studied German for around ten years and lived in Germany and in Austria, where I took language courses at the University of Vienna: what really fascinated me about German was the literature. Same goes for French, which I studied for five years, obviously while regularly visiting my French part of the family in Provence. During those five years I also studied English, French and German literature and history. I spent one year in Hebei, China: a region where, luckily enough, they speak Mandarin and not a dialect. I have now been studying and working in the Netherlands for one year and a half and I am taking Arabic.

Theresa
Bijles in Duits (moedertaal)/Engels/Latijn/Wiskunde
Growing up in Germany with a German mother and a Dutch father, I soon became interested in different languages. Therefore I chose for Latin, English and German in my Abitur, which I finished with cum laude. Also mathematics were part of my main subjects, which I always enjoyed doing. After finishing my Abitur in Germany, I came to The Netherlands to study Interior Architecture & Design. I have been tutoring since I was 16 and always been motivated by helping students improve in their school work and hope to be able to help you soon as well!
