What Can My Private GCSE German Students Expect?

My teaching method at GCSE level and iGCSE Level, and in general, focuses on you and your needs. I have a lot of experience as a private GCSE German tutor and believe the following steps help my students to achieve the best results.

  1. Before the lesson and during the first lesson, we’ll establish what you feel are your ‘problem areas’ and your strengths
  2. We’ll spend about 20-30 minutes doing some varied diagnostic activities on speaking, listening, reading, translation, writing, vocabulary and grammar to check your current level.
  3.  I’ll suggest areas of improvement and we’ll begin working on those, combined with the issues you have highlighted.
  4. We can decide on the frequency of lessons, depending upon availability and affordability.
  5. I can give homework if required between the lessons.
  6. Completing homework for GCSE German certainly accelerates progress, especially if you want to make a lot of progress quickly.

What Makes Me a Successful GCSE German Tutor?

Every student has different needs, but one of the key factors for most German language learners is confidence. Building confidence is often really important. Knowing that you can speak, or that you can understand a language and feeling confident about it makes a huge difference at GCSE level.

We work on your confidence with plenty of fun, interactive and effective activities. These check, test and push you to feeling confident communicating in German. I teach German to home-educated students, students who study German GCSE at school, but who may need some extra private tuition. In addition, I help adult learners looking to work towards getting a German GCSE qualification too!


gcse german tutoring reviews and testimonials⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ JS, Mother of Student for Private German GCSE Tutoring
“Put simply, Sabina is just amazing. She is well prepared before every lesson and she ensures that everything learnt in a lesson is recapped at the end. She is very thorough and always notes down topics and grammar sections that my son wants to go over in the future. She assists him with his vocabulary learning and she always encourages him to extend this further. Sabina has helped my son with all aspects of his German IGCSE course and recently she has helped him perform highly in his speaking exam by tailoring her teaching to his needs.

She is also very flexible with her lessons and always finds a way to fit in my son’s lessons, especially as he approached the speaking exam, she set aside many lessons just for him! My son has only been having lessons with Sabina for a short amount of time, despite this his confidence has grown, his vocabulary recall has improved and his use and variety of complex structures in his writing has developed. Sabina has taken my son from an A/B (6/7) standard to a high A* (8/9) level. Overall, Sabina is great German teacher and I highly recommend her!” 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Lisa, Mother of Private German GCSE Tutee
“As a tutor, Sabina has been a great help with Georgia whilst studying for her GCSE in German. She has helped with both vocabulary and speaking, and her confidence has gone from strength to strength since starting with Sabina. Georgia is hoping to continue with A-level, and Sabina’s teaching method has assisted Georgia with this decision. Sabina is punctual and an excellent teacher and I would strongly recommend her.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  John Parkin, Father of Home-educated GCSE German Student
My daughter, who is home-educated, has been working towards GCSE German with Sabina for about 9 months. She started as an absolute beginner and has made remarkable progress. She looks forward to her lessons, is motivated to do her homework, and is enjoying the subject. Sabina is friendly, professional and well organised, and her teaching has a clear structure, direction and purpose. Altogether ideal, in fact.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Emily Potts, Parent of German GCSE Student
I highly recommend the Ideal Teacher Language School. Sabina is a wonderful teacher. She is helping my son with his GCSE German and he has seen huge improvements across all areas even after just one month. In addition to being a subject expert, Sabina is very adept at relating her subject knowledge to the GCSE syllabus, making it clear as to what is required at each level, all the way up to achieving the top grades. Sabina combines thoroughness with patience, kindness and easy to understand explanations which makes her lessons very enjoyable.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amanda, GCSE German Student’s Mother
Sabina is a great tutor for my daughter, who is studying GCSE German.The lessons are well structured with relevant back up materials. The lessons have focused on developing my daughter in those areas where she is less confident. However, Sabina has also introduced newer aspects of the language that has really enriched my daughter`s understanding. Overall, the lessons are excellently tailored to my daughter`s ability and progress.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Clare, Mum of KS2/3 Student Working Towards GCSE
Sabina has been teaching my daughter French and German on a weekly basis since February. She is friendly and professional at all times. The transition from face to face lessons to Skype due to COVID-19 was seemless. My daughter is always enthusiastic about, and really enjoys, her lessons and looks forward to them. She really likes Sabina too. Sabina is encouraging and challenging in perfect balance 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Nadya, Mum of GCSE German Student

Sabina has been absolutely amazing and I am so grateful for all her efforts over the past year. Sabina has such a lovely temperament and my son has enjoyed his lessons with her. She is very thorough, relevant and tailored the lessons to his interests. His predicted grade went from a 3 to a 6 and from foundation paper to higher paper for gcse! I can’t thank you enough and you are brilliant! Highly recommend.
