I met Andrew through Tutorhunt and from the first visit he was really enthusiastic to teach me and further my knowledge of the German language. He knew from talking to me about my background and asking me questions in German that I have the basics of conversation, however my sentence structure needed a lot of work. Having come from a family of fluent German speakers I had heard a lot during conversations which I wanted to understand, but Andrew was always on point to keep me on the correct path and not make it too difficult but also not too easy. I would recommend Andrew to anyone who is thinking of starting or continuing their German.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for you kind words Jason - always happy to help. Best wishes Andrew ☺;;

We are certain that our daughter’s knowledge and confidence improved ten-fold as a result of her time spent with Andrew. Andrew is passionate about what he does, is friendly, supremely knowledgeable and we ckjjfnt have been happier. Highly recommended

5/5 Rating

We were impressed with the tuition received. The attention to detail, so important with German grammar, was constant, but delivered in friendly manner so the lessons were fun and not oppressive as can be the case with German. More important, was the constant positive,constructive feedback combined with detailed correction of speaking and grammar which gave increasing confidence to our daughter in both her speaking and written work. As a result her school results improved which in turn gave her more confidence with regard to the results she could achieve. We are happy to recommend Andrew as a tutor

Tutors Response :

Many thanks for your kind comments. Pleased that Katherine managed to achieve such an excellent result in her `A` level German & was consequently able to get into her first choice university. A well deserved result. All the best for the future. Andrew ☺

Brilliant tutor. Makes the lessons fun and interesting but really knows his stuff.

I`m an adult learner who did some french at school and Andrew is tailoring the sessions to what I need.

He`s been brilliant and has changed a session at very short notice when I had an emergency at work and couldn`t get there in time.

Also don`t think I have been to a lesson where I haven`t properly laughed and enjoyed the learning.

5 stars isn`t quite enough but the maximum tutorhunt lets you choose for the review!! :-)

Tutors Response :

Thanks Helen - what wonderful comments. Always enjoy lessons ☺
