Information about Lukas
I grew up in Austria, graduated from Cambridge (First Class) in 2017 and love tutoring German and Philosophy!
German is my mother tongue. I have tutored more than 30 people in German, from total beginners to highly advanced and from small children to octogenarians. I try to tailor my teaching approach to the individual needs of the student as much as possible. Speaking should be at the centre of a German lesson. Learning German requires fun and discipline. I think my German lessons contain both.
After studying Philosophy for a BA and an MPhil at Cambridge University, I am now doing a PhD in University College London. I have helped both A-level and university students write their philosophy assignments and prepare for exams. I can offer advice on essay writing and exam techniques. When it comes to Philosophy itself, I prefer the Socratic method: making the student think instead of giving long lectures!
I grew up on a farm in a small village in Austria. There was not much to do there, but when I attended my Gymnasium (secondary school), I discovered my love for ancient languages (Latin and Greek). Reading about the ideas of those times, I got into philosophy and the big questions. My first extended essay at school dealt with the question of free will. Then I worked as a paramedic for 9 months. This was an exercise in character-building and real world experience! Afterwards, I studied Philosophy at Cambridge University for four years. Now I am here in London, pursuing a PhD in the Philosophy of Political Economy at UCL and ready to share my knowledge with you.
Availability: I usually see students in the British Library, which is a wonderful space for learning in the middle of London.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: My tutoring experience includes teaching more than 70 students in German, Philosophy, Latin, Ancient Greek, English (as a foreign language) and Oxbridge admissions.

Feedback For Lukas (7)
Lukas supported my son`s learning and passion for Philosophy and without a doubt helped him in achieving his excellent A level result. Off to uni to study Philosphy.
Lukas has been a very helpful, encouraging and understanding tutor. He provides excellent guidance on how to structure answers to exam questions, and makes the more complex aspects of the course understandable.
Awesome teacher that gave me confidence on writing and reading philosophy and also helped me get high marks on my essays
Lukas is helping me to "resurrect" my German which I haven`t used since completing German A-level. He is friendly, knowledgeable and very responsive to my learning needs. I am very happy with our lessons so far.
Lukas is a very professional, knowledgeable and flexible tutor. I will definitely recommend him!
