Hello - my name is Anna and I am a friendly, experienced and qualified teacher. I am a native German speaker, having lived in Britain for the last 20 years. I have been tutoring students in German at all levels for the past 8 years, and it gives me a great sense of satisfaction to see students gain confidence and enthusiasm, improve their skills and to see them achieve their goals. I prepare many quality teaching materials myself, and make all lessons relevant to the needs of the student.
Language tuition has been my passion for a long time and allows me to be supportive and creative, motivating pupils and believing in their abilities. One-to-one tuition is very productive, because it adapts to the individual learner`s needs easily.
Availability: most weekdays and = evenings and selected hours on Saturdays and Sundays
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have over 15 years experience as an employed teacher in colleges and secondary schools, and I have experience teaching different abilities and different ages, from Beginners classes to A-level and Professional qualifications. I have taught classes for Business, Travel and Conversation in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
I adjust my tutoring to the needs of the individual pupil. If it is paramount to follow a certain GCSE or A-level syllabus, then I am happy to do so. My experience in schools has given me the knowledge of the standards required in exams, as I have conducted and marked many exams myself. I hope to harness individual learning styles and make language learning a positive experience. At A -level I help with the Individual Research Project, film and literature studies, e.g. "Good bye, Lenin!", "Der Vorleser", "Andorra" or "Das Leben der Anderen" (and others), Essay writing, Vocabulary, Speaking Card Practice, Reading, Writing, listening, Grammar and Translation.
