I offer two types of classes - INFORMAL and FORMAL:
Informal classes are for ESL or German students who want to practice their conversation skills, with some grammar/vocabulary revision sprinkled in. These are $40 AUD per hour.
Formal classes are for ESL, German or French students who need to focus on specific areas, like grammar, pronunciation, help with completing homework, and following class material (or for students who wish that I prepare the material for class). These cost $55 AUD per hour to account for preparation time and recordings made after classes (for students to remember vocabulary and pronunciation).
If you book a package of five classes to use within 30 days I will give you a 10% discount off the total price.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. The first lesson is half price!
I have three years' experience teaching languages and many more years of experience as a language student. I have learnt German, French, Farsi (Persian), Portuguese and Arabic myself and have lived in several countries as a foreigner, so I know the struggles of learning a new language.
Because of my background in linguistics and languages, I am quite good at teaching topics that may be more challenging for some tutors, like grammar and pronunciation.
I completed my PGDip in Linguistics at Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris and my MSc in Neuroscience at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I have lived in France for one year and Germany for five years.
I think people learn languages best when they just keep on practising expressing themselves. With each of my students I have a Google Doc where the lesson notes are saved so we can keep coming back to them in following lessons to make sure that they don't forget. I have my own interesting material - or, we can use yours.
