Joanne E
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

German Tutor in Plymouth

After teaching German for 45 years in local secondary schools I retired in 2013 and now teach via Zoom, which works well for me and my students. I was an A-Level oral examiner for years and am fully conversant with the syllabus of the main examination boards. I encourage students to experiment with a range of multi-sensory methods to help them learn, but above all, I make 1:1 learning encouraging and fun. Students should expect to send me weekly homework by email and to learn vocabulary and grammar each week. Conversation and pronunciation are a vital part of language learning and we also practise this each week.

Madie P
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

German Tutor in Plymouth

I am a qualified and experienced state secondary school teacher. I taught German and French for 22 years in schools in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. I taught German to A-Level and French to GCSE. In addition, I was Head of Year for 8 years and therefore have strong pastoral skills which hopefully make students feel relaxed and supported. I took a year out when my daughter started school and worked as a teaching assistant. This gave me good insight into working alongside children with additional needs and behavioural issues. As a student, I spent a year working as a language assistant at a school in Austria and I recently tutored a friend's daughters through GCSE and catch up when one switched to German from French. I left teaching in 2022 to support my daughter through her GCSEs.

He is always patient and encouraging and pushes us each lesson to improve whilst reinforcing what we have already learned. We find him to be highly professional, a fantastic teacher and someone who makes the lessons fun whilst achieving great results. Mrs Stephanie D'albiac-reay

£40.00 to £48.00 ph

German Tutor in Plymouth

I am a qualified teacher of German and French (PGCE) with an MSc in Learning and Teaching from the University of Oxford. I have taught in state and independent schools and am currently the Assistant Head of Senior School (pastoral) at Frensham Heights School. I am passionate about finding the right way of learning specific to the childs needs, and I recognise the challenges of learning languages, especially when it is a compulsory subject and not necessarily a child's keen interest. I have an excellent record of my students achieving above their predicted grades at GCSE and A-Level, as well as passing school entrance exams, and aim to instil a love of languages in all my students. I have also taught literature to a high level and can help prepare for the English GCSE exams, as well as SATs, and 11+ and preparation.

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our German teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a German tutor coming to your home in Plymouth to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the German tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the German tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the German tutor is required to travel to your home, in Plymouth. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your German tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your German tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of German tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group German tuition in Plymouth depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
