Native German speaker giving lessons in German language, oral expression, grammar, and literature in London.

Methodology

I am a native speaker who was born and partially raised in Berlin. Therefore, my tutees will benefit from instruction in correct pronunciation, grammar, and spoken and written German. My lessons will be equally geared towards school pupils looking to pass oral and written exams and those seeking to gain a grasp of corporate and professional German.

Background

I have largely given German lessons to GCSE pupils, providing particularly valuable help in the preparation for oral and written exams. However, I also have wider experience in corporate and legal German garnered through internships in a German law firm.
