German native speaker and experienced teacher offers tailored lessons to improve your German!

Methodology

I'll prepare each lesson individually. So we'll make our lessons about you and your personal aims and preferred focus.

In our meetings we can focus on general communication, writing skills or on specific grammar, learning vocabulary, etc. , whatever you need to improve.

I love working with students and language learners. For me it's important that people enjoy improving their language skills and find their own way of learning strategies.

Background

I have a Master's degree in Trans-cultural studies and extensive experience in teaching (and learning) foreign languages. In addition I completed further training in how to teach German from the Goethe Institute.

During my studies I have worked in the Foreign Language Center of the University of Bremen and the Carl Duisburg Centrum (a school that teaches German as a foreign language) and assisted students of all backgrounds and ages in their learning process. Since then, I have taught and am still teaching German in schools and language institutions.

I also have valuable experience as a private tutor as I started teaching about 9 years ago and I have been, and still am, enjoying it a lot.

I have a variety of experiences when it comes to age and group size. I have tutored and taught on "one on one" basis and in (smaller) groups. My youngest student was 6 years old and the oldest one was 83.

Perfect! Marlene has been really good at tailoring our lessons to what I need and gradually building in things that I didn't know I needed. My focus has been on building vocabulary to improve my reading comprehension and she has been really helpful with not just strategies for this but also ways to improve my grammar while I learn vocab. The exercises she set were suited to my level and she gave really useful feedback. She also gave me a lot of extra resources and showed me where I could find more.
Overall: Marlene was easy-going and friendly, flexible with our schedule, quickly grasped my level and could explain things in the target language in a way that I could understand. A real professional but a real person too! Thanks Marlene!

Marlene helped me mostly with my written German. She proofread and corrected my texts, explained my mistakes and gave me tips for further writing. She even prepared activities for certain grammatical issues I had to work on. Marlene put a lot of effort in helping me find ways to improve my German.
