Information about Gideon

I am a professional native German speaker living in the UK for the last 20 years.
I am fluent in five languages and have a passion for teaching and foreign cultures.
Having learned foreign languages myself, I understand the difficulties students face and apply methods to overcome those challenges.
I work with young and mature students equally, and pride myself in achieving great learning result for all groups, including those with learning difficulties.

Availability: I am available from Monday through Sunday each week. I am happy to provide online sessions and I am also available for face to face sessions, providing all necessary precautions (distance/ rapid tests etc.)

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have a degree in simultaneous translation from the University of Munich in French, Spanish and German.

Once I arrived in the UK, I qualified as a teacher at the University of Westminster and taught for numerous years at Stanmore College.

This was followed by a degree in Psychology from the Open University to further develop my skills in understanding students` challenges, such as pressure, self esteem and learning difficulties such as ADHD and dyslexia.

Overall I have 20 years of experience in teaching languages to students from 6-75 years old and I am currently teaching at one of the top private boarding schools in the country as well as at a well known evening college in London.

I am familiar with all current online platforms and deliver well organised classes and provide all materials. I pride myself with a high success rate in national examinations including the Goethe Institute Certificate (A1-C1)

I have full QTS and am familiar with all the national curriculum.

Gideon is an excellent German tutor. My sons knowledge of German has improved and he is beginning to connect all the dots with this subject. I expect him to do very well next year when he sits his GCSE exam. In addition he is polite, encouraging and turns up on time for the sessions. I would definitely recommend him.

One of the best language teachers I have ever had (and I`ve had a fair few in my long and mistly happy life). German was just a winter diversion before returning to Spanish for Panama work and Hungarian for Budapest work, but I would return to Gidon for German lessons in a heart beat. Highly recommedned! dce

Gideon is a superb teacher. I`m an adult learner and Gideon`s approach works perfectly - he adapts lesson pace and difficulty so that its always challenging but fun. Highly recommended!

Thank you Alex for your feedback and I am glad you like the lessons. I can only facilitate the learning, the hard work comes from you and well done for passing the A2 diploma so successfully.

Great tutor __ very energetic and dedicated. My son very much enjoys working with Gideon, who is an excellent teacher able to make sessions both interesting and demanding.

I`m learning German as an adult. I started with an online course, but was struggling. Gideon has identified exactly what I need to be working on (pretty much everything!) and has tailored lessons accordingly. Lessons are fun, I`m learning a lot and growing in confidence.
