Personal Description:

I am a graduate from the University of Oxford and a native speaker of German. I was raised bilingual with English being my second mother tongue, and learned French from when I was six years old. Currently, I am doing a PhD in English Literature, having previously completed an undergraduate degree in German and English literature and Linguistics in Germany, and a Master's in World Literatures in English at the University of Oxford. I am teaching English literature and translation studies for undergraduate students, German as a foreign language, and I am also working as a translator of literature and poetry (from English into German).
I am passionate about languages, literature, the arts and translation, and I love teaching languages skills and literature.

Tutoring Experience:

I am currently teaching German as a foreign language for BMW, and since starting my PhD I have taught undergraduates at the University of York in English Literature and Translation Studies. I am also teaching French and Latin, and I have worked as a private tutor for many years, teaching German to primary and secondary school students as well as to univeristy students. I have taught English as a foreign language to refugees and to exchange students, which really helped me to become an expert on English grammar and learning techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

English and German as a foreign language: my approach is that language learning should be fun, efficient and useful. I am more than happy to take a grammar-based approach as well, if the student wishes that, or if there are certain areas that the student wants to improve - but generally, I try to make my lesson as practice based as possible, involving lots of speaking, by having conversations with the student and by asking the student to do little presentations on their chosen topics. In my opinion, languages give you the opportunity to explore a different perspective on the world, to get to know another culture, and they are learned in the best and most efficient way when students learn to overcome their initial hesitation and develop a confidence to speak and to have conversations.

English literature: through doing an undergraduate degree, a Master's degree and now a PhD in English literature I have a lot of experience teaching students, either 1-to-1 or in small groups, and I know the expectations that schools and universities have of their students. My approach in tutoring is to strengthen the student's skills, to identify areas such as analytical skills, writing skills or others that the student wants to improve and to offer tailored excercises, advice and lots of material to practice these skills.

All my tutoring is tailored to the individual student's needs, and I will structure sessions and practice material individually to help students improve their skills and to excel in their chosen subject.
