This is how 2 referees rated Maurice:
I am a bilingual English-German masters student at the University of Sussex.
I am 23 and have over four years' experience tutoring German, English and French.
I grew up in the U.K. In a German-speaking household, as a consequence I am fluent and have a native accent. I frequently visit relatives in Germany which keeps my knowledge of the language up to date.
I have also studied in Germany at the University of Heidelberg, where I took courses in German literature and philosophy.
I have been tutoring part-time for over four years in various subjects, primarily German, but also English literature, French and History.
I have tutored through a number of schemes, including volunteering through local community programs and offering private tuition.
I have mainly taught school age pupils, but have also had adult students. I welcome learners of all ages and abilities.
My approach to tutoring is practical and adaptive.
I check whether the student has any particular areas of the syllabus or language they wish to focus on in particular, for example tenses, pronunciation, listening comprehension, etc. If yes, I will give extra attention to these areas.
My lessons are structured and involve a variety of exercises. I train all four aspects of language ability: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
I prepare passages for reading comprehension suitable to the student's level as well as vocabulary lists relevant to what the student is studying in school. I also use exam board textbooks to prepare the students for class tests and the final exams. During the lesson I work with the student on pronunciation: new words are spoken aloud, and we engage in conversation to practice new phrases.
I am happy to teach the grammatical rules, but equally happy to use phrase-based learning for students who prefer to learn by practice rather than theory.
In general I place emphasis on practice and repetition, and I often go over material we did the previous week to consolidate learning.
