Private German lessons by graduate university

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
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 tuition of German for all levels.
Courses tailored to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate the concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams at the gymnasiums, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or get acquainted with the language.

For school support:
It is above all a long-term job. This is why any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: quality is given priority over quantity in order to obtain an optimal long-term result. The students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, evaluations ...). 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:
The subjects are according to the centers of interest and / or the specific needs for preparations for the examinations. I attach particular importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. Depending on the level of the students and / or their expectations (preparation examinations / assessments / desire for improvement for example), I work on the choice of appropriate words, grammatical correctness, ability to formulate sentences more or less complex.

For preparations for examinations:
The courses offer solid tools to learn how to write, comment on literary texts and a methodology for oral comprehension. Students will be required to bring their own booklet for exam preparation available at all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute exams, Cornlesen's exam books are particularly appropriate. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course a test copy of the GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself.

For oral comprehension:
Work from the visual audiovisuals downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE site, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term ease not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I also work on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize oneself with the oral.

For the work of the written expression:
I begin by explaining in the first lesson some methodological tools to acquire the editorial skills. The student has the option of starting to write during the course or doing an essay writing exercise and give it to me to correct (sent 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 copy of the essay before the lesson so that I can respond even more quickly to his needs.

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 advice to ensure maximum success for each. Moreover, each student can contact me at any time outside of the courses by mail if necessary. This is a work included in my services.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been giving private lessons for more than 20 years, starting with German, a language that immediately fascinated me through the discovery of captivating literary texts. Over time, this passion has become an art that I had not only want to know in every detail, but also to share it through my teachings. Subsequently, I completed my offer with French courses shortly before obtaining a bachelor's degree. Each course, each discipline is adapted to the particular needs and wishes of the students. The most important thing for me is to do everything to motivate each learner. Therefore, creating my own teaching method allows me to have not only an individualized approach, based primarily on a concrete approach.

In addition to my teaching, I strive to be available by answering questions by email and / or phone for each of them. This is important for me, as I strongly encourage self-employment outside of my presence, especially when it comes to tutoring. In this regard, when I make a commitment to one of them, I take time to clearly express my expectations: It is essential to provide a regular individual work outside the hours of support and / or courses To progress. In the same way that learning an instrument involves working one's scales outside of a lesson, making progress in a subject implies a substantial investment.

At the level of tutoring, consolidating notions, assimilating vocabulary, catching up with schooling, preparing assessments require a lot of work. Reason why, I make every effort to plan my courses on the long term. As for homework, giving it on my own initiative makes little sense to me, as it may overload. That said, I am happy to do a lot of homework and advise on exercises for optimal preparation for future exams on demand. Moreover, my goal is not that the student learns with me his vocabulary on the spot, nor to do homework directly with him. However, I take the necessary time to show how to solve an exercise, learn vocabulary, recite if necessary. In this way, students can acquire the tools they need to work independently. The ideal is to take a class of at least 90 minutes to do a better job, especially if it is to prepare the exams. Concerned to provide quality work and professional, I am even available to collaborate with teachers if necessary, to help the person. From experience, I have always found it beneficial to share a few words with teachers who tell me about their expectations for support classes and inform me about the special needs of the student. This allows me to target my work more effectively and to move in the same direction as the student's teacher.

French private lessons are intended for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: the goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including 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. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. This is a job included in my services. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first, I take the initiative to inform them in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.
