I operate through a disciplined framing of questions in conversation, such that the student is guided not towards the “answer”—but towards what it is they already know that will help them find the answer. My ideal student is one who is open to a style of teaching that may at first seem slow—conversation based, question based—because I believe that is the ideal way to learn.
Able to tutor German from high school to undergraduate level. I have personal experience studying German in the United States through AP level in high school as well as in college. Living in Germany for a total of four years has also prepared me to be able to offer conversational lessons in most non-specialized subjects.
I am very picky with learning fundamentals and basics in every subject I teach, not only in languages. The right pronunciation is one of the basics I really focus on. The less hassle the student has later to speak the language well. Languages and lessons need to be fun in order to have a successful student or client.
Application based. I like to speak with my students, rather than work on paper. It is most important to me to be able to communicate in the language in a spoken way. I also include German culture so students can understand some of the "Why's.
I have been learning new languages myself and understand the process and difficulties of adapting to a new language. I will be patient but efficient and hope to help you enjoy learning a new language. We will learn through an artistic and creative approach and I will help you to be able to understand the German culture and find ways to express yourself freely.
Hello! I'm so excited you've taken the time to read this. Welcome! My love of languages started in high school when I first took German. Since then, I have graduated with a B.A. in German and Russian from USC - Columbia and have acquired tutoring and teaching experience for German, Russian, and Spanish through study abroad, university, and my teaching position.
I've been teaching for over a decade, various students, various levels, various needs and various subjects. There's nothing I love more though than teaching languages! Depending on a level I combine grammar fundamentals with creative ways of learning vocabulary and a fair share of good old conversation.
When I teach individually, I let the student tell me what they need help with and work from there. When I teach a class, I usually write on the whiteboard, and have a game prepared to get the whole class involved and willing to practice the new skill.
MA from UW-Madison, Wisconsin - university experience, pronunciation expert; Deutsch für den Beruf (Business German) certificate; on-line and f-2-f; can provide upper-level materials; prefer serious, engaged students; I incorporate all teaching methodologies; I understand how to attain fluency as an adult learner; passion for European culture, (military) history and German dialects; I've taken man
The lessons are for any student of any age. I encourage the use of and personally use material spoken or written by Germans. All material I utilize must originate in Germany. This provides reliable material that encourages proper pronunciation and an ear tuned to German spoken by Germans.
As a tutor, I should project energy and enthusiasm. I would involve my students and let them have an active role in my session. I would have games, role play to keep the learning fun. I would praise them generously whenever they earn it. Timely feedback and chances to improve play important role in motivating a student.
I teach by engaging students not only in grammar exercises but also in conversations about life and literature. I can provide as much or as little structure as the student(s) want, and I am happy to tailor my lessons to individual needs.
– Business German The ability to understand and write documents in German, to negotiate with representatives of countries with a highly developed economy in their own language, to find new partners in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein - all this is very real, if you thoroughly learn the german language today.
Whether you are struggling with your high school/college German class or simply want to learn a new language - I am the right person to help you out. Based on your individual needs I will set up a plan that works best for you. Most importantly, I will focus on getting you prepared for general small talk to a level that would enable you to speak to a native without any problems.
My specialty is academic German and I perceive language in a formal and schematic sense, though this intimate understanding of language affords me a high degree of freedom in the content and manner of my lessons. Should you employ my services, we would discuss the content and goal of the course and lessons and thereby negotiate a scope and pace.
My teaching method really depends on the German skills the individual student has acquired so far - if any - and on the student's goal and age. Due to my experience I prefer to teach German to the younger crowd, ranging from preschool through high school. If you are an adult who wants to learn German as a hobby or for a vacation in Germany, I would also love to teach you.
I am a recent college grad living in the Cleveland/Akron area looking to tutor students of German. I have BA in German Language and Literature from the George Washington University and spent my junior year abroad in Berlin, Germany. I have experience in my school's Language Assistant program, helping lower-level German students at my University with in-class work and comprehension.
Thorough preparation of material. Using variety of teaching methods with the aim to motivate students. Very successful coaching skills, thus demonstrating the value of learning a foreign language (specifically English). Excellent skills in assisting and motivating students to combine learning and studying with fun.
We would review vocabulary and start with simple conversations. I feel its best to learn a language by using it and not just by reading rules in the book. We will put what we learned in context from the get go.
I would say my teaching method is fairly laided back. I feel if students picked to learn a language, they should mostly be driving themselves to learn. I myself learned with the help of worksheets, and educational articles written on German grammer. I have even written my own articles, in which I try to explain concepts by showing how similar German is to English.
I have a B.A. in German and a Master's of Education from Old Dominion University. My target lesson group is beginners to advanced learners. i.e. children and adults. My methodology is Didaktik and I personalize lessons to each individual learner.
I started learning German in 7th grade. I graduated from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi with a degree in Computer Studies and worked in I.T. in Jackson, Mississippi; New Orleans, Louisiana; Los Angeles, California; and Hamburg, Germany. I lived in Berlin for six months. While working in Los Angelos, I traveled 50% of the year for 3 years to Switzerland to work with a customer.
I structure my classes with a student focussed approach. I always have a base idea of the topics that need to be covered that day, but I let the students interests and questions guide how we learn that lesson. I am a very conversational tutor and think that the student should have a hand in their own learning.
I teach German to people of all ages. Since I believe that a language can be learned best by applying it, I try to engage my students in speaking German as much as possible. I will, however, explain difficult grammar concepts in English, as those are important to understand.
I love teaching in a practical way - through natural conversation or reading of primary documents. My goal is not only to teach to a test, but teach to a skill - my students will leave with both the knowledge and confidence that they can apply their learning in practical situations.
The lessons I offer are highly dependent on your level and goals. For beginners I offer classic grammar lessons and with advanced learners I often simply have conversations about casual things or very specific topics. Depending on your wishes, I will correct any errors directly in the conversation or via a real-time synchronized text document (e.g. GoogleDocs).
I try to assess students individually, measure their strength and weaknesses and tailor lessons accordingly. I have tutored students in Grade levels K through 6th Grade. Not all children learn the same way, and it is important for the teacher and tutor, to find out how the child learns, and then use various approaches within the scope of their abilities to break down subjects.
Text book instruction based on students current needs as well as interactive lesson plans, such as news broadcasts, movies, literature and newspapers/magazines. Emphasis on German grammar and word placement as well as verb conjugation. May involve some daily activities, such as shopping, transit, etc.
I am native Russian and Ukrainian speaker. I have been learning German since I was small and still have passion for this language. I have experience in teaching foreign languages including German, Ukrainian and Russian. I see myself as a highly motivated and organized foreign language teacher with strong leadership skills and extensive tutoring experience.
I incorporate technology (Duolingo, Quizlet, Google Apps, and more) and reference internet resources as well as textbooks (Deutsch Aktuell, Komm Mit, Mosiak, Denk Mal, Auf gehts!). I have a plethora of resources I’ve accumulated in my classroom. I do not try to re-invent the wheel, but I do believe that personalization and innovation is key to keeping language learning relevant and engaging.
