Business and Social Studies (Primary, GCSE, A-Levels, IB, Adult Education)
Methodology Having studied and worked at multiple educational environments in Greece and UK, I have found that the combination of formal and non-formal education methods is the best teaching tool for international students of diverse education backgrounds. In my lectures I present the theory of GCSE subjects (Business Studies, Philosophy, Social Studies, Humanities), as well as A-Level and IB subjects (Economics, Business & Entrepreneurship, Psychology, Social Students and Theory of Knowledge, History & Politics, Media Studies, Essay Writing, Presentations & Interviews) not only through lecturing, giving examples, mini exercises, assessments, but also through ice breaking and team bonding games, role-playing games, debate and mini projects. This aims to provide students not only with theoretical knowledge, but also with practical expertise, and at the same time to give them the opportunity to develop a plethora of soft skills that are useful for their educational and further professional background.

Chinese lessons of all levels from native speakers, funny
Native speaker (student) with several years of teaching experience gives individual Chinese lessons and tutoring in Chinese. Without previous knowledge or already advanced does not matter. Language of instruction German or English as desired. You are also welcome to take a course with a friend of two. For systematic language learning and everything else, I am happy to explain on request. Who am I? Yaqun is my name, I have a bachelor's degree in law in China and am currently studying psychology in Germany. This year is the sixth year for me in Germany. With my own experience for language learning (German / C1 English / B2 Chinese mother tongue), I constantly try to teach my students the language in such a way that the learning is systematic and individual, and the learners remain motivated and enjoy it more and more. It is worth to me that the conversation in class is academic, humorous, full of warmth and understanding. I see the progress of my students every day, which I am always looking forward to and proud of. After three years of teaching experience, my strengths are teaching the pronunciation as well as patient explanations with examples from everyday life and the comparison between German and Chinese culture. This is how the students find my lessons: "You can explain the language most clearly to me" - Mark from America. "With your method it is much easier for me to pronounce the words." —Hans from Germany.
