Hallo, I am Katja.
I am patient and dedicated native German tutor. Born and raised in Germany by a mum who is also a German teacher. I am enthusiastic about languages and people. I studied French and German and also learned Spanish.

My aim is to make the German language and culture accessible for everyone, especially young students.

Tutoring Experience

Since 2011 I have been teaching group courses at the Goethe Institute in London and tutoring hundreds of private students. The students I tutored for their GCSE, IGCSE, A-Level, Pre-U and IB exams passed their exams with excellent results.

As a qualified examiner I am able to perform A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 exams at the Goethe Institut and I know how to prepare for them.

So, whether you would like to start from the very beginning, need preparation for an exam, are interested in business German or would just like to refresh your existing language skills - I will tailor the lessons to your requirements and your interests.

I have tutored students from the following schools:

The Henrietta Barnett School
Godolphin & Latymer School
Francis Holland School  
Millfield Boarding School
Lycée Français Charles De Gaulle de Londres
St. Pauls School
Westminster School
King's College School
Alleyn's School
I have taught at the following institutions:
Goethe Institut, London
Birkbeck University, London
Humboldt Institut, Konstanz/Germany
International House, Freiburg/Germany

I have tutored / am tutoring at the following companies:
Coca-Cola Enterprises
Deutsche Börse
Norton Rose Fullbright
Palantir, London
Dutch Embassy, London
European Medical Agencies, London

Tutoring Approach

My lessons are carefully planned and executed. They include a large variety of different exercises tailored to each student’s requirements. Challenging grammar is broken down into comprehensible and logical steps.

Vocabulary revision comes with games and multimedia aids to make the lesson enjoyable and effective at the same time.
