Information about Tim
My name is Tim, I am a native German speaker and I teach German and English for 10 years. Currently, I tutor students in small groups and in one-to-one settings. I like communicative and learner-centred approaches and I encourage students to actively recall and practice the target language as much as possible during the lesson. I combine introduction of grammar concepts and immersion in "real life" situations, where the concepts are applied, e.g. by learning to introduce yourself to your new neighbour, ordering a coffee or discussing the latest `Stephen King`.
However, I studied linguistics and English literature, and I would be more than happy to tailor the lessons to a more academic and more detail-oriented style - especially with reference to GCSE and A-Levels preparation.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
