What Can My Private German Students Expect From Tutoring?
My teaching method at KS3 German level, and in general, focuses on you and your needs. I have a lot of experience as a private KS3 German tutor. In addition, I believe the following steps help my year 7, year 8 and year 9 students achieve the best results.
- During the first lesson, we’ll establish what you feel are your ‘problem areas’ and your strengths – I am happy to have an informal, no obligation chat with parents beforehand to confirm that I can help.
- We’ll spend about 20-30 minutes doing some varied diagnostic activities on speaking, listening, reading, translation, writing, vocabulary and grammar in the first lesson to check the student’s current understanding and level.
- I’ll suggest areas of improvement and we’ll begin working on those, combined with the issues the student feels they would like to develop.
- We can decide on the frequency of lessons, depending upon availability and affordability.
- I offer a homework task to consolidate learning, if required between the lessons.
- Completing homework for KS3 German certainly accelerates progress in year 7, 8 and 9 students, especially if you want to progress quickly.
What Makes Me a Successful KS3 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 makes a huge difference at KS3 level and beyond.
We work on your confidence with plenty of fun, interactive and effective activities. These check, test and push you to feel more confident communicating in German. I teach KS3 German to home-educated students, students who study German in years 7-9 at school, as well as students looking to take their GCSE German exams early. I have also worked with adults to help them improve their German too! Below, you fill find some reviews from a few students that I have taught recently:
Private German Tutor Reviews from Current and Previous Students
John P., Father of Home-Educated German Student from Scratch
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.
Amanda, Year 9 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
Emily Potts, Parent of German 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.
JS, Mother of Student for Private German 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 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.”
How Can I Help You To Improve Your Confidence or German Language Skills at KS3 Level?
I have been teaching German at KS3 level for nine years in secondary schools and privately.
