UEL Education student teaches you German in Sydney so you can attend the next Oktoberfest with no problems!

Methodology

I am an Education student completing my BA (Hons) this year and passionate about bilingual education. I would like to hear more people and students speaking German and support everyone who is keen to refresh their language skills.

I am happy to tailor my lessons around your needs, so whether you are travelling abroad and just need to get your way around, would like to order food in a restaurant, get in touch with family or friends on the other side of the world, keep in touch with your pen pal, had German at school and like to learn it again, have a German date and would like to impress them, or just like the language for what it is: I will make it suitable for YOU! :)

We can either meet up in Sydney or have a Skype conversation, whatever works out for the both of us! I am also happy to teach a pair, friends or a group of people at the same time.

Background

Between February and April 2017, have tutored two teenagers in Maths and helped them to pass their exams.

Since July 2017, I have been employed by Goodstart Early Learning in Brisbane and Sydney, both on a contract and on a casual basis, as a Senior Educator as well as an Educator. It has allowed me to enhance my skills in educating, understanding, negotiating, nurturing and multitasking. Not only have I undertaken educational tasks, but also administrative tasks, such as planning and programming.

Growing up as a sequential trilingual myself in a multicultural city called Stuttgart, Germany, I have received the opportunity to learn German (native), Italian (native but beginner) and English (non-native but fluent) and develop multicultural awareness. Moreover, as part of the last year of my Bachelor of Honours degree, I am required to submit a research dissertation for which I have chosen bilingualism to be my topic. Therefore, I strongly emphasise bilingual education and am happy to provide this learning opportunity to other people.

Rates

Travel Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $130
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $250

Details

My rate is a flat rate so it does not depend on whether you are a beginner or at an intermediate level. However, I am happy to discuss discounts for children and university students.

I am happy to travel to your place if that makes you more comfortable and you feel more confident in your familiar learning environment, but please note that this will incur an additional $5. If you are further away than 15km, the travel expense will be $10.

My cancellation policy outlines that you are required to give me at least 24 hours notice prior a scheduled lesson in order to not be charged. If you cancel on me last minute (> 24 hours), the full fee will be charged.
