Information about Christine
I love the German language and love helping others to learn it too. I have a BA in German and Russian from Leeds University and have lived in Hamburg in Germany. Other languages I speak include French and Bulgarian. I have worked in marketing and communications for most of my career and came to teaching after running several media and events companies.
I have taught German and French in UK schools to GCSE level and am currently a teacher at a British School in a European capital, where I teach grades 6 to 10 up to iGCSE.
I am a friendly and outgoing person with an easygoing nature and believe that language learning should be fun and motivating. I try to include games and competition in my lessons, even when they are one to one. I have experience teaching different levels and abilities and identifying my students` individual needs in order to ensure progress.
Availability: I am available for evening and weekend lessons.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: Qualified German teacher, experienced teaching in UK schools, beginners to GCSE, as well as adults. I also have several years experience teaching English as a foreign language.

Feedback For Christine (1)
I am an adult learning German and having previously completed a beginners course in a conventional classroom setting and was looking for some personal tuition to help me progress. Christine is extremely friendly, patient, supportive and always encourages me to expand my knowledge. The lessons are based on individual needs and a variety of exercises and homeworks are provided, including speaking and listening practice. Extensive use is made of online note sharing and different sources for both in-lesson exercises and homework. I really enjoy the lessons and feel that I am constantly improving my knowledge and understanding of the German language. Would highly recommend to others.
