Information About Viktoria - Stevenage teacher - (13 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Viktoria:
As a freelance writer and tutor, I use German as my main language for writing, although my original mother tongue is Hungarian. I grew up partly in Germany, partly in Hungary and received the major part of my university education in Vienna, Austria. Throughout my life I travelled extensively and lived in seven different countries altogether. Learning new languages and cultures, people and customs I consider as one of the most exciting life experiences, which are both fun and rewarding.
I was six years old when I first taught a language: As my mother's daughter, who is one of the most passionate and talented language teachers I know, I was allowed to guide her students through a series of language exercises. Back then I felt the same thrill as today when teaching a language: where not only words, but cultures and personalities meet. I have tutored throughout my university years and have always enjoyed to help out fellow students, as well. Both of my parents are teachers, and I inherited their passion.
Ideally, a language is learned in the country where it is spoken. Of course, that is not always possible. Nevertheless, a similar environment can be created to approach the language through different channels simultanously (books, films, conversations, listening exercises, having pen-friends, booking holidays), while speaking very little to no English in class! I aim to create interest in the country, the culture, to awaken the natural desire in the student to communicate, to express themselves, to make friends. And when it comes to the more boring parts, as for example memorizing vocabulary, I have some secret and fool-proof ways to achieve that, as well.

I have now also received one session via Skype, (due to a foot injury) - and I must say - Viktoria is just as excellent as an online tutor, as she is in real life one to one.
I can highly recommend Viktoria for anyone wishing to learn German or Hungarian.
The first tutoring lesson was based on my initial statement of my knowledgeof German,which was very little.The session was structured at the tempo that suited me ideally,viktora evaluated me well,then rolling on ,targeting my weekneses(grammar) in an easily perceptable way,as well as giving me great cofidence, in the style that i felt was was tailored to me.The pace that the imput was implemented is perfect for me,and as a researcher I very much appreciate The high standard and consideration towards my goal… In sum Viktoria Is Highly competent and I suggest on the limited evidence(4 weeks contact) that she could teach a tailored directional program to anyone willing to learn.I Hope the lessons keep on being enjoyable hard work with the background theme of being fun.I love to be corrected and then shown my error then a tailored plan to suit… Viktoria is certainly a" get the job done and do it to your own highest standards tutor with full bespoke input (person specific) to enable success."Highly satisfied.gareth j k
