German Lessons (IB, IGCSE, GCSE,PYP)
I teach German to kids and students British curriculum, PYP, IGCSE, GCSE, IB, A-level.
I am primarily a German teacher but also have extensive experience teaching English in a teaching career spanning 12 years so far. I find teaching a rewarding experience and I love to help students reach their dream of being able to speak a new language. In addition, I have a masters in German and English literature with a qualification to teach these languages. Whilst working at the British International School of Ukraine I gained a wealth of experience. I prepared students for Cambridge IGCSE exams achieving excellent results in German. I have also taught German on the International Baccalaureate and with ‘PYP Make It Happen’. So, I am confident teaching German from KS2 all the way up to KS5. I also completed the course ‘Teaching ESL students in mainstream classrooms, and used this knowledge to teach students English as a second language. Whilst in Bratislava I was responsible for coordinating modern foreign languages being taught to primary and secondary students. I gained experience teaching the Edexcel IGCSE and German A Level. In addition, I continued to teach EAL in small groups and on a one to one basis. In my current role I have returned to teaching German language to middle school, GCSE and IB Diploma students. I have worked very hard building my own resources, particularly for GCSE and IB classes. I have designed internal exams across all year groups and conducted oral exams for both GCSE and IB students. I have made detailed plans for field trips, as part of enquiry based projects. I have a passion for learning and teaching languages and I am fluent in German, English, Russian and Ukrainian. I also have foundation knowledge of the Turkish language.
