SPEAK GERMAN FLUENTLY? > WE`LL WORK ON IT TOGETHER!

Hi,

Has been some while, since you`ve been on your German...but now you feel it`s the right time to shovel free some time and get back on the horseback (so to speak).
And you would like to do that with a native speaker, who can give you some input, correct some of your accents (though British accents sound lovely in German, you know, what I mean... ;-)), remind you of some of those grammar rules, you once used to know...help you out with some vocabulary - you do remember, it was not SO hard at some point...right?!
So, here we are then: Somewhere on the right top corner, there is a field saying "Send Maria a message now". Let me know about your availability, how many classes you`d like (per week...or in general) and we`ll just meet online and talk, talk, talk. And who knows - probably (given Corona and travel restrictions are gonna be less strict then) you might just make it to some of the gorgeous German Christmas markets soon - or some of the world-class ski resorts...or just to understanding some of the advertising ads about the beautiful Christmas markets and world-class ski resorts for now ;-) But we can certainly exchange German Christmas nonsense with each other (which will be sweet with winter coming) and get you in shape linguistically!

Write me a message - and we`ll be in touch soon.
Have lovely autumn,
your German teacher to be (or, in case you`re not a native speaker and need to polish your English, feel free to get in touch...I can sing English Christmas carols, too! And LOVE plum pudding and trifle...yummy trifle <3 and feel like half a Londoner anyways
Maria

About Me

My Background is in Translation and Interpeting, which Comes with the equivalent of 5,5 years of scholar/professional and University/higher education learning - and is obviously in the language field! - I worked in Business for over a decade, so can relate to more mature people, who have work schedules and work with Clients, in companies or on their own.
I am also well travelled and have seen my chunk of the world, so hopefully can make sense of a variety of Backgrounds my students may come from. > Don`t worry, though, if you are just an English stay-at-home mum. There is no rules as to who gets kissed by the muses at birth and who`d inherit talent for languages and language learning. - And I am also happy to bond over cake recipes and which seeds are nice to be planted in the garden for them to bloom in spring :-)

Education

Professional language training, specialized institutes of higher learning (Translation and Interpreting) and university - in Germany and Spain - corresponding to 5,5 yrs of studies (prior to the B.A./M.A. system introduction in Germany, though ;-))

Experience / Qualifications

Other than my education, also over a decade in Business, with multilingual teams and clients; also work experience in the UK and with French people. I`ve worked targeting markets beyond that, so also the Arabic speaking world, some exotic spots and the US.
I´m well travelled and speak a solid handful of languages (and learnt more), which I learnt in various ways and with different approaches at the time (form second mother tongue to prfessional training to spare time learning).

I`ve tutored in a specialized little school in a rather young age on the side for some hours here and there,, so that was about school kids, who needed help with their homework or classes (in/for German and English).
Then, during my study time, when abroad in Spain, I gave classes to Spanish native speakers for a little while. The age group was in the young to middle 20ies.
When working fulltime in between I also had coaching clients (in various languages and profession related, but not as language learners).
At the moment I teach online - sometimes when being on the go. Though I take on all ages/levels, I surely have my best match with learners with prior knowlege (the bigger part right now is mature students), who already speak a bit more - so we can spend most of the time finetuning the language, speaking and erasing a bit of an accent (if wanted and given) or prepare for certain tasks (studies, fluent conversation, new topics, understanding environments in work life etc.).
Having said that I sometimes"mentor" young people, who seem to be very happy to have someone to talk to, when not being clear abou their current life options etc. - so I genuinely like and adore young people/people still in their life orientation phase from the bottom of my heart!
(If you have that "sort of need", feel free to write to me, and we can also book an "unconventional" hour like that together... sometimes, and in some situations, people would feel it`s what they need ;-))

If there is anything else, you are interested in, but could not find an answer to, please send me a message to ask back!

I`ll be happy to have you get in touch!
And hopefully converse with you soon (in your preferred language!)!
Hello, dear (potential) students, I`m a tutor/teacher with German as a native language, usually teaching German (my mother tongue) and sometimes English (to non-native speakers only, of course ;-)). My background is in applied languages. I had spent ca. 5,5 yrs of training in translation and interpreting in my home country and abroad for my degree/certifications (English is one of my "trained" languages) - then followed by "real life" business and work experience. So, that is many years with international clients and multilingual colleagues on top... These days I teach between part-time and full-time online and must say that I really enjoy my classes. My focus is on students, who bring a bit of preexisting knowledge (usually we would widen the vocabulary, ease up the speaking, help with becoming fluent or feeling better about the use of the own language, correcting reappearing grammar errors, and smoothing out the pronunciation - and also just doing fun stuff, like talking about German TV and travels; but also building up knowledge for presentations, interviews and job life in German (reading specialized texts), or in administration contexts (visa application essays, registering for courses, etc..., but that is a tendency, not a "must" of course. You can contact me with whatever level and whatever matter is dear to your heart! Please let me know your motivation for the class, your goals, and what you would like to focus on, so we can find the best way to progress together, which is in line with your needs! I speak ca. 5 languages fluently and can make sense of some more, so don`t be shy, if your German is shaky or you have another mother tongue... we should be just fine :-)
Hallo liebe Lernende! Ich bin deutsche Muttersprachlerin, mit sprachlichem Background (entspricht 5,5 Jahren Ausbildung/Fachinsitute/Uni im Übersetzen und Dolmetschen - viele Reisen - Leben und Arbeiten in einpaar Ländern, darunter natürlich die, deren Sprachen ich unterrichte).

Das klingt, als wäre das für Euch? Dann schreibt mir eine Message mit einpaar Angaben zu Euch und Euren Lernwünschen. Was ist euch wichtig? Was sollte im Fokus stehen? Ich freue mich auf Euch! Maria

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 my presence and explanations alone are insufficient 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. I usually correct at the end of a conversation exercise with detailed feedback, this to avoid blocking and work on fluidity. 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. Feel free to contact me for more information.

ENGLISH AND GERMAN CLASSES FOR WRITING AND SPEAKING
​English and German are two of the most dominant and essential languages nowadays. Growing up bilingual with these two was a challenging, humbling and exciting experience. Now I would like to share my knowledge on effortlessly switching between them with you! The lessons will be hands-on, but easily understandable and true-to-life, so you can go and use what you've learned right away! There will be homework, and I place great value on pronunciation, as that is what makes or breaks a language "performance" in my eyes. I will try and use whatever foundation and experiences you have and integrate that into the course so that you will be able to make better connections and learn faster. You and I can figure this out together! <3

In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.
