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.
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.
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.

She is always punctual, sweet natured and professional. Our children adore her. She has a natural aptitude for engaging with them and brings special toys, songs & mascots to make her visits special to them. She is also a gifted teacher for adults, and my husband, who never learned conversational German, finds her guidance clear, insightful and never patronizing.
Currently we hope this is a very long term arrangement where we can work with Annekatrin to help our whole family develop our skill and secure our love of German conversational skills and culture.
Delighted to have found her, and can recommend her highly.
I will be happy to continue … Kind Regards
Nothing is too much trouble for Anna - she is punctual and totally reliable. If I ever have to contact her via e-mail to ask a quick question or change anything she replies immediately and is extremely accommodating.
After 2 very disappointing experiences with finding potential German tutors who subsequently did not turn up to our house (NOT through this website!!!) Anna has restored our faith in the tutoring profession… we only wish she had moved to our area 3 months ago so we could have started the German tuition earlier!… what a piece of luck for us and anybody else in the Warwickshire area who is looking for German tuition, that she has moved here and bought her wonderful talents and brilliant and kind personality to our area!
