Are you looking for a native German speaker?

Einen wunderschönen guten Tag,

If you are looking for an experienced teacher to improve your German language skills, you are more than welcome to contact me. I can offer my help for beginners as well as for students who seek a higher degree. Apart from my didactical skills, I'm a very patient teacher who always tries to make the best out of your course.
A brief information about my person:
At the moment, I'm working as a full-time private German tutor but I'm also finishing my dissertation for my MA studies in International Criminology and Criminology/Forensic Psychology (University of Hamburg; University of Middlesex/London).
2013, I graduated in Sociology and Education Science at the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen (DE). For my Education studies, I put my emphasis on adult education (especially for private school teaching). With that, I gained special didactical skills. I also made a very important experience with teaching German as a foreign language for primary school kids while I was living in Spain in 2008/09.
Furthermore, while I was living in Germany, I've been giving lessons for German pupils (aged 13-18) in English and French as a foreign language for more than 3 years. I'm a really passionate teacher that's certainly one of the reason why my students always gained the best results and they could always improve their language skills quickly.
I'd be glad to get in touch with you to discuss your personal needs.
For an online lesson via skype or a lesson at mine I charge less (includes also places which are in a walking distance from mine). For a lesson at a place of your choice it'll be 31.50 pp/h. So pls. send me a brief information about your preferences and availability before you make a booking. Many thanks in advance.

Viele herzliche Grüße,

Amazing Tutor

Tina is really a great tutor. She helps improve many aspects of your language ability (writing, reading, and speaking), and tailors the lessons and materials to meet your specific level and needs. Her lessons are quite engaging, so what could be difficult and tedious is more fun. I would recommend her highly to improve your German language abilities.
I have improved my writing, reading, and speaking abilities through her instruction.

Absolutely helpful

I have been a student of Ms Tina for almost over a year. My German has definitely improved with her help.

Particularly, she can spot your weaknesses and provide you with clear guidance on how to tackle them effectively.

I would recommend her to anyone. (Professional or children)
Extremely good

Such a good teacher!!!

I'm English - My boyfriend is German - we live in London, he speaks English ridiculously well, but his family in Germany don't speak english at all.

After more than 6 months of lessons with Tina, I can hand on heart say I understand and can speak more German now, I'm not fluent but it's coming (to be honest I could definitely practise more at home) but when we visit them now I can at least understand the drift of the conversation and have confidence to try to speak to them, my vocab gets bigger every week.

Tina is easy going and fun to hang out with - she plans the lessons effortlessly, ensuring you're learning what's relevant to you (where you'll be using the language and what for). German is a crazy complex language grammatically and can feel overwhelming sometimes but she makes sure we move one step at a time, spending more time in places we need to.

Great balance of reading, writing and conversation.

Can't recommend her enough.

Thank you Tina :)
