Information about Esther
If you feel that you have missed out with your German grammar or speaking practice over the last year, I am here to help bring you up to speed.
(! COVID 19 - whenever possible, I would like to do in person lessons, if that suits you, as both, my students and I have found them to be more effective. I will be wearing a visor and provide a `sneeze guard`)
I am Swiss and I qualified with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in German at the University of Greenwich, verified by Tutorhunt. I enjoy teaching language skills to all age groups. Feel free to contact me for any aspect of your German language needs - I am available to tutor on a one-to-one basis in person, and per telephone, and I am also available to tutor small groups (groups of friends or family groups).
I always had a love for languages. I love the German language and am passionate to try and make it easier to learn and understand - not forgetting that learning a new language should be a pleasure and should contain an element of fun. I particularly aim to instill confidence and to give exam pointers.
I am happy to help you with your GCSEs, iGCSEs, A levels, IB, or degree work, to brush up your knowledge with conversation or to start as a very beginner. I can help you with grammar, speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Availability: I am also available most days in the mornings and afternoons, as well as after school and evenings.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I am a German speaking Swiss National and have many years of experience with pupils from public, private and state schools, with very good results in tutoring for GCSE, iGCSE, A-level, International Baccalaureate, higher education and degree level. I also tutor beginners and pupils with learning difficulties. In addition I offer German conversation.Contact this Tutor

Tutors Response :
Thank you for your feedback Carole.
Esther is a lovely teacher. My daughter likes her teaching very much. It`s very hopeful that she could improve step by step.
Recommend Esther highly. My daughter has taken to Esther really well. Esther is always well prepared for the tutor sessions and my daughter is regaining her confidence again in the language.
Donít look any further - if you are reading this book Esther!! Updated: 11.09.2018 Esther has been a great tutor for my daughter. She obtained an A grade (2 marks off an A*) in German thanks to Esther`s hard work. My daughter`s school were predicting a B if she was worked hard. I can`t recommend Esther highly enough!!
Tutors Response :
Thank you Paul - your daughter was a pleasure to tutor.
Esther was contacted by me in a state of panic for my daughter... her level of German was so low that we both thought she was heading for a very poor grade in GCSE. With very little time before the exams, Esther worked hard at focussing my daughter`s attention, teaching her skills necessary to succeed and low and behold, she came out of the exams with a B. We were so happy and place most of this success squarely on Esther`s plate. Thank you Esther and for anyone looking for a tutor in German, look no further.
Esther has given both my daughter and I some confidence that, with her guidance, my daughter`s GCSE result will be as good as she can expect. If only I had found this website and Esther sooner.
Esther was a wonderful German tutor and my son went from D to A in under a year for GCSE.
Esther has been a superb tutor for my son. There is no doubt in our minds that it was down to her expert and patient tuition that he achieved an A* at GCSE. She was always well prepared, helpful and very very patient with a student who was not very well prepared or organised. She greatly boosted his confidence with speaking and listening and helped prepare him brilliantly for all his exams. I cannot recommend Esther highly enough. She was always friendly, smiley, positive and helpful- an excellent tutor.
Tutors Response :
Thank you so much Vanessa for your feedback, it is greatly appreciated.
Esther was a super and delightful tutor. Her lessons were always very well prepared and my daughter found them extremely beneficial. We would definitely recommend Esther.
Esther has been a complete star. She helped my elder daughter, who was in danger of completely failing her GCSE German. We had a complete turn around and she achieved a B in the end. Esther is always well prepared, extremely thorough and we would highly recommend her. In fact, daughter no.2 is now studying German and taking GCSE next summer so we have Esther helping her out now too.
Esther is tutoring my daughter (Yr 12) in German grammar, which was not covered as thoroughly as it should have been at school. She is really nice, reliable and often goes over time if they are engrossed in a particular point. My daughter is really enjoying the lessons and finding Esther`s tutoring very helpful.
Improvement seen already in my son`s German. We are very happy with the tutor, it is going well.
Excellent tuition, I can`t believe how much progress I have made since Esther started working with me.
Tutors Response :
Thank you Emma. The hard work is showing results :-)
Esther taught my son for his GCSE German as he missed school lessons due to other commitments. Thanks to Esther and the school he obtained the highest grade A star for the subject. Esther is a dedicated teacher who is really passionate about her teaching with a wealth of experience. I recommend Esther for students who wants to achieve high in German.
