Hello, my name is Annekatrin and I am a friendly, experienced and qualified teacher. I am a native German, and have lived and taught in the UK for over 18 years.

I am married with three children.

Since 2011 I have been working as a private tutor. I have helped many students improve their Grades at GCSE, IGCSE and A-level and have taught the complete syllabus to students who study at home. I also work in the financial and engineering sectors and teach German to employees who need language skills for work.

I adjust my tutoring to the needs of the individual pupil and try to bring out the best in each student. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to see students gain confidence and enthusiasm, improve their skills and achieve their goals. I create a relaxed and friendly learning environment, where students have a chance to learn and practise at their pace, but also realise their potential. I prepare most teaching materials myself.

Tutoring Experience

I have over 15 years teaching experience as an employed teacher. I have taught at secondary schools, in Further Education colleges and at home. I am particularly proud to say that all of my students have passed their GCSE and A-level exams with excellent results, securing places in Cambridge, York, Cardiff and Imperial College. One of the schools I worked at was rated "excellent" by Estyn. I also have experience of conducting A- level oral exams for different Education boards. Since 2016 i am teaching the new specification for AQA GCSE and A-level German.

Tutoring Approach

Language tuition has been my passion for a long time and allows me to be supportive and creative, motivating pupils and believing in their abilities. One-to-one tuition is very productive, because it adapts to the individual learner's needs easily. I adjust my tutoring to the needs of the individual pupil, and I try to bring the best out in every student. If it is paramount to follow a certain GCSE or A-level syllabus (WJEC, AQA, Excel and others), then I am happy and prepared to do so. My experience in schools has given me the knowledge of the standards required at exams. I also have experience of harnessing individual learning styles and I love to make lessons fun with a variety of activities. Many pupils ask me to help them with the IRP, essay writing, preparation for oral, listening and reading exams, or with grammar. You can choose however many lessons you would like, and which particular topics or aspects of your course you would like to focus on.

Being German, I also love German history, literature, music, theatre, cooking and baking. In my lessons I share this knowledge and experience with you and combine language and culture where ever I can. I offer German lessons for holidays, business, travel guides, and people, who are planning to move to a German-speaking country.
