PRIVATE, LOCAL GERMAN TEACHER – SUCCESS STORIES & REVIEWS
Below, you can read my feedback from some of my German students who have had private German tuition. You can also find out more about my credentials, experience and how a private German tutor in the local Spalding, Bourne, King’s Lynn, Sleaford, Boston and Peterborough areas can help you to improve German, no matter the reason or level.
PRIVATE GERMAN GCSE TUITION – REVIEW ONE:
Recently, a student who sat his iGCSE in May told me that he had got a grade 9 (the highest grade you can get) in his GCSE German exam results. When I started working with him 6 months ago, he was working at a grade 6/7. I was so pleased for him, because he took on my advice and worked hard during the lessons and with the homework that I gave him. He has now come back for private tuition for German A Levels.
This is the review his mother left for me before he had even sat his exams!
“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!”
PRIVATE GCSE GERMAN TUITION REVIEW TWO:
Another mother’s review of weekly GCSE German lessons with her daughter.
“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.”
LOCAL PRIVATE GERMAN CONVERSATION CLASSES TUTOR – REVIEW THREE:
“I have a lesson with Sabina almost every week, often at different times due to my work schedule, we start our lessons in German. Greeting each other in German and talking about what I have done in the week, e.g. activities, work, going out, eaten etc… This way I’m learning the language by my own life, which I really enjoy. It puts relevance to what I am learning, its not just about saying hello, my name is, I like eating… its about being given the tools to hold a conversation with someone in another language. Our lessons have taught me to communicate with people, not just talk to people. My biggest weakness is listening comprehension, I need to have someone say the words to me, and hold that conversation in German, as listening to TV, YouTube is not enough for you to have proper social interactions. What Sabina has done for me is given me the tools needed to understand sentences not just a word here or there, so when our lessons are over I know I have learned something specific and helpful to my language comprehension, which makes me feel good about myself.
Sabina takes the time to tailor a lesson to your needs, which is brilliant. For our lessons, I do want to learn the grammar, but I don’t want to drown in it, so she explains how and why sentences are structured in the way they are and what grammar to use. Then lets me use the sentences and grammar I have learned, without overloading my mind. This is very useful as the new information I am taught stays current. She sets me assignments to do between lessons, this is also very useful as it allows expansion on the lesson gone and a good basis for the next lesson, allowing me to learn quicker.
Most importantly though, if I have a question, if I don’t know what to say, if I can’t understand what I’m being told, I feel comfortable to ask for help, which to me, is very important. I would highly recommend her as a private German teacher for any of your language learning needs.” Alex E. (Adult Learner – German Conversation Classes)

MY GERMAN TEACHING METHOD FOR LOCAL STUDENTS WHO WANT TO LEARN GERMAN
My German teaching method focuses on you (the student) and your needs. I have a lot of experience as a private 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 base-setter activities on speaking, listening, reading, 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 and I can give homework if required between the lessons. Completing a little bit of ‘German homework’ certainly accelerates progress, especially if you want to make a lot of progress quickly.
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 KS3, GCSE, A Level, as well as for adult learners. We work on that with plenty of fun, interactive and effective activities, which check, test and push you to feeling confident communicating in German.
