Information about Jemma
I am a native German speaker and have gone through the english education myself. I am able to help you with your fluency in German for either your GCSE preparation or A-Level preparation. I have been brought up bilingually and I understand how daunting and difficult it can be to learn a new language or to try and revise for language exams by yourself (especially for speaking and listening exams).
I am happy to help you perfect your German but also to do this by the syllabus so you are best prepared for any exams to come!
Having said that I am also happy to help those who are simply passionate about the language and simply want to improve.
Willing to travel: 2 miles
Experience: I have tutored in the past for both GCSE and A-level German and it has always been a fun experience and to my joy, good results as well!
Feedback For Jemma (12)
Jemma is my Y10 daughter’s German tutor. She is absolutely amazing. Her classes are very colourful. My daughter find it helpful from already the first lesson. She is really experienced. I can recommend her to anyone Thank you, Karmen
My daughter has seen an improvement in her German grade. This has given her the confidence needed.
Jemma is an outstanding tutor, not only is she excellent in the subject matter, her approach and ability to adapt lessons to really help the student are excellent. Highly recommend
Our daughter is thoroughly enjoying her German lessons with Jemma and is clearly benefitting from Jemmas thoughtful and organised approach. Jemma has a great teaching style and is able to make the lessons light-hearted and joyful while being very professional and disciplined. She has great work ethics and a very positive can-do attitude; she is always well prepared, and the lessons have a clear focus. As a native German speaker Jemma knows all aspects of German culture and the language, including more naturally spoken German, but she also knows the modern foreign language syllabus inside out and can tailor her lessons to (in our case) the GCSE requirements. Jemma is an excellent teacher, and I feel very lucky that we have found her!
I was very fortunate to get in touch with Jemma. She is an outstanding German tutor and she really knows how to lead the student towards their goals. I really enjoy the lessons and I look forward to them. After a while of being stuck in the same level, I feel I`m moving forward and I`m actually able to speak German, which was my inicial goal. I sincerely recommend Jemma.
Jemma has been an amazing tutor. I started working with her 6 months into my German learning and have seen a rapid increase in proficiency since our lessons started. Would recommend to anyone!
Jemma teaches our daughter what she needs to learn in focused and fun way. I highly recommend her.
I am meeting with Jemma every four weeks, and I have had two lessons so far. As an adult learner I was a little apprehensive, but I am thoroughly enjoying it and have already learned so much. I have `dabbled` with learning German for a long time but decided that as I had retired I would take it seriously. However, what I discovered was that I had significant gaps in my grammatical knowledge, hence wanting private tuition. Jemma`s approach to teaching enabled her to very quickly spot these gaps and to begin to address them. The exercises she has given me, and the tools and tips to work with, are building my confidence, and developing my knowledge, skills and understanding. I am thoroughly enjoying our time together and highly recommend her approach. Thank you.
Organised, planned lessons, matches my learning style and recognises where my strengths and weaknesses are. Excellent value for money.
Jemma has been my tutor for the past couple of months now and I have already seen major improvements in my results. She is motivating, reassuring, and so helpful and really goes through things thoroughly. Would highly recommend!!
Jemma creates a welcoming atmosphere in class, which enables the student to relax and be present whilst focusing on the tasks at hand. She detects your sweet spot in terms of challenge and difficulty so that you are made to feel like you are learning a lot, but not to the point where you are out of your depth. With other tutors I have found that they have not empathised with your needs in class such as pacing, or level, but Jemma manages these excellently. She aware of how you are feeling from moment to moment and if you are gaining confidence and need a challenge she meets that with a higher level, or if you are struggling she goes over material for you to consolidate as needed. An excellent tutor who deserves that five star rating. I have had over a month of lessons with Jemma and have been more that satisfied with everyone, I have thoroughly enjoyed them, which enables me to learn better and feel that I have the support I need to pass my B2 German exam.
Jemma is a fab tutor and has really engaged with my daughter who needed a bit of help with her GCSE German. I would thoroughly recommend her as a tutor.
