Information about Lina
Hi my name is Lina
I am available to help students learn different languages and improve their oral and written skills. I can help younger students prepare for their GCSE exams and I can also teach intensive 1-2-1 business level courses. I am available to teach face to face or online via Skype.
I have been teaching languages for over 20 years now and I have lived and breathed the German culture for many years. This allows me to give students a real insight into the way of German life. I can use many real world examples in the way I deliver the course material, to help students better understand what is being taught to them.
I have taught students aged between 12 and 80 from over 50 countries around the world. I have taught many different levels of German from ABC courses for students who could not read or write, up to advanced business courses.
As part of one of my roles I was involved with the German Immigration Ministry, which included providing courses and exams to people who wanted to live in Germany.
I can prepare students to take Test DaF,DSH and Zertifikat Deutsch exams.
I am very passionate about travelling and find that my love for languages enables me to get the most out of my trips. I see languages as a key to unlocking different cultures and experiences that I may have may otherwise have missed out on.
Availability: 7 days a week, Morning, afternoon or evening
Willing to travel: 2 miles
Experience: -Teaching assistant in the German Philology Department at a University.
-Language Teacher in an International Business school in Germany.

Lina is a fantastic tutor, she is very friendly, engaging, enthusiastic and encouraging.
Definitely the best tutor I have found 5/5!
Lina shows patience, great at encouraging my daughter and knowledge of the syllabus required.
Lina has been amazing. My daughters is studying for her GCSE in Spanish and Lina has already made her feel so much more confident after only two lessons. She is friendly and approachable and very professional.
Tutors Response :
Great lessons that are well structured and suited to ability. No time pressure with a real focus on developing the desired linguistic skills. Highly recommend.
As a novice to Spanish and learning a new language for the first time in over 30 years, I have been very lucky in finding Lina who has developed strategies and lesson plans which work well for me.
Tutors Response :
Hasta el sábado.
Lina is very friendly and helpful. Only had a few lessons so far but all going well. Thanks.
Lina is a lovely lady, very polite and very welcoming to her home for tutoring. I enjoy my lessons with her and look forward to them every week.
Lina has been teaching me Turkish for a few months. Lina gives me homework every couple of weeks, which is great as it all helps with the learning process. I have always found it difficult to learn a language but with Lina`s tutoring I am hoping to be fluent in Turkish in the near future.
I have chose to learn Turkish as it is a language that I have always been keen to learn but never plucked up the courage to try tutoring until this year. I have been visiting the country over the last 18/20 years and I am hoping to emigrate there in the near future, hence thought it`s time to get professional help with learning.
Excellent tutor, very very professional and polite
Lina is efficient and friendly but does not waste time on idle chat. She speaks clearly and encourages me when I think I am not doing well.
Lina taught me Russian for over 6 months, I have always found it difficult to learn a language, but by the 2nd month I was able to have a conversation while visiting Russia with people I met. I continued with my lessons and I improved immensely, when I visited Russia again I had the confidence to travel around Moscow on my own asking for directions on the metro and order meals while out and about.
Lina made this possible, thank you.
I had to learn Russia as my husband has been working there for over 3 years and I visited at least once a month for a week.
Mrs Lina Lee is an excellent teacher and prepares her lessons very diligently. To the Englishman like me, German is a very hard language to learn once one has passed the first apparently simple hurdles yet Lina is very patient and is able to get the student "up-to-speed" in an atmosphere of friendly and pleasant learning. Die to family problems, I have had to cease attending with Lina, but will return as soon as these troubles are over. Holidays in Germany are very pleasant, and e3ven more so with Lina`s attention to one`s skills.
Lina is a great tutor. I have been working with her for a few months now to develop my German for business reasons. Her style mixes structured learning with conversational development and she makes each lesson enjoyable. Her knowledge of syntax and grammar is second to none and it spans a number of languages which helps when working through some of the more complex areas of language learning. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lina to other language learners.
The lessons are very well prepared with a good combination of oral practise and grammar. She is personable and encouraging.
