Private lessons in German language for complete beginners up to GCSE , A level and undergraduate level from a highly experienced German graduate and content creator.
I go to the student’s home or office. I provide tuition all over the Manchester, Stockport north east Cheshire. I’m a graduate in German, a qualified teacher and a fan of the German language.
I teach German one to one to all kinds of people and age ranges including GCSE and A level students, entrepreneurs and retired people.
The content of the lesson is geared towards the student’s goals and personal preferences.
I can recommend a range of self-study courses suitable for use by adults, or revision guides for people taking exams. I have produced my own conversation and grammar sheets which I give to students and work through with them.
A unique aspect of my style of tuition is the lesson diary. Every lesson I make notes on my MacBook Pro laptop computer and occasionally I record onto my professional quality MP3 player. At the end of the lesson we transfer the text files and audio to your computer for review later. The lesson diary builds up into a valuable record of what we’ve covered. It’s great for revision.
My qualifications and experience
I have an honours degree in Modern Languages from Trinity College Dublin and I have the Post Graduate Certificate in Education to teach Modern Languages and English. I’ve been enthusistically teaching German since 1983.
I worked at in Further Education from 1983 to 1991 and taught English abroad from 1991 to 1996. On my return home, I embarked on my freelance career in media publishing and tutoring.
My level of knowledge
My spoken German is of a very high standard. When I talk to German speakers, they assume I’ve lived there for many years. My pronunciation is so good that they are usually not able to tell which country I am from!
A passion for German language, culture and history
My prime motivation is my passion for German language and my affinity for Germany and the German-speaking world. After more than four decades, I continue to be fascinated with the language and gain huge personal satisfaction from it.
