Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Diploma in Education and the PTLLS level 4 teaching qualification.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have many years of experience in working with and teaching children, young adults and adults.
I have worked in the Montessori School in Munich, then lived in Hamburg where I worked with School children, helping them learn, before I came over to England.
Here, I have taught German for school, University as well as Business and German for traveling for several years.

I have experience with all three major exam boards for GCSE and A-level exams and have a wide range of teaching materials.
Often, school students come to me with one or two specific areas they are struggling with, for example pronunciation or just lacking confidence for speaking German. Some have problems with some of the Grammar. Whatever the issue, I can help.
In my spare time I run 2 German language conversation groups, one is for native and near native speakers (www.meetup.com/speakgermanmiltonkeynes)and the other one is for people who are still learning the language and would like some support from a professional tutor.
How much do you charge?
My current base rate is £36 per hour for a 1 to 1 lesson. I recommend each lesson to last 1.5 hours (£50). This includes traveling to your home or a specified place within Milton Keynes and some surrounding areas (I add £0.45 for any additional mile outside my 5 mile radius).
I also teach from my home in Tattenhoe.
The rate includes teaching materials, such as worksheets and preparation time for the lessons (books are not included but can be provided)
Price for 2 to 1 lesson £30 per person per 1.5 hour lesson. Group tuition also available, please contact me for details.

Tell me about some of your current students.
I have a 100% success rate for my GCSE students who completed their German lessons with me. Most of them passed their exam with A, or even A*.
I am also teaching Business German, currently in several businesses in Milton Keynes as well as Northampton.
My clients include a family with young children, who own a holiday home in Austria and are learning how to order food and drink, buy train tickets and go shopping.
Another client started learning German with me about a year ago, has since used his German for part of a Business presentation in Switzerland and is now studying to sit a GCSE exam as a private candidate next year.
Do you have a personal message for students?
My lessons are fun and you will be surprised how much you can learn and how easy German can be when explained properly.
You don't know your Accusative from your Adjectives? Worry no more, I am here to help and I will teach you everything you need to know for your goal, not less, not more.
