Feedback For Peter (15)
I am very pleased with the tuition I have received from Peter. Peter never misses an opportunity to relate use of the German language to real life situations, which really helps with comprehension.
Peter has taught our daughter GCSE German for the past 2.5 years. He has been a massive support and certainly made the subject more enjoyable for our daughter. He has suggested different online materials to use, he gives honest feedback and is extremely reliable.
Peter is an exceptional tutor and has helped my son leaps and bounds. He has an extraordinary ability to engage the attention of a student throughout his lessons and his speed and level of engagement and delivery is high. My son looks forward to his lessons and enjoys them. Thank you so much Peter.
Contacted us very promptly and arranged an introductory meeting. My daughter finds him very personable, always well prepared and very helpful. We would definitely recommend.
Peter Ruhe is an excellent tutor. I have been having advanced German tuition with Peter for 2 years and I can see the vast improvements I have made since the start. I needed to get to the next level in my learning and Peter has helped me achieve this. Peter is patient, reliable, professional and always strives for you to achieve the best you possibly can. I can highly recommend Peter as a German tutor.
Learning German with Peter is a pleasure. He instills confidence and self belief whilst making the sessions challenging and ultimately rewarding.
Peter`s first 2 lessons were good. My son is happy with the tutoring so far.
Got on well with my son. Very organised. Would recommend.
Peter provided excellent German tuition for our daughter and took her from a C standard to A* in around 4 months. They worked very well together and she responded well to his calm style.
My son is using Peter to help with his GCSE and is very happy. Peter knows what is required and how to get my son working to his maximum potential. We are happy to recommend Peter.
Excellent. Couldn`t be happier in finding Peter for our son. Very highly recommended
Peter was an excellent teacher, I thoroughly enjoyed his lessons! He really helped me with my German and I would love to continue with him once back from university
Peter started tutoring my son in September 2015. My son`s German was at a grade D and he was struggling at Gcse level. Peter has provided excellent support and tutoring to my son. He is organised and very experienced, this is very apparent as my sons current Grade is now an A*. Peter is a great Tutor is polite and very approachable I would recommend him to anyone. Many thanks Peter.
From the moment Peter started tutoring German for our son, he has helped tremendously and our son has improved from being very behind at school to coming on leaps and bounds with his German! Peter has been an amazing support and we would highly recommend him.
It took Peter less than an hour to understand my daughter`s needs and adopt a holistic approach. She enjoys and actually looks forward to learning with him as is making steady progress in German.
