I am Gabriele and originally come from Nürnberg, Bavaria, Germany.
When I first came to England some 40 years ago I started teaching German to adults in evening classes and then qualified as a teacher. I first taught German in a North London Comprehensive School for 10 years and after working for some years in commerce I returned to teaching German again.
I specialise in GCSE and ‘A’ level tuition and write ‘A’ level material for TES (Teaching Education Supplement). All my GCSE and ‘A’ level students have improved their exam grades by at least one grade (mostly to an A or A*) and I am fully conversant with the latest school syllabus (AQA and Edexcel exam board papers).
I also tutor adult students from complete beginners to advanced, ie. business level German, and write my own materials based on current topics
I am committed to every student succeeding and getting the most out of each lesson. My adult students come from all over the world and have different reasons for wanting to learn German: moving to a Germany speaking country and starting a job there; communicating with German relatives and friends or just simply loving German culture and customs.
Living away from ‘home’ for a long time has never been an issue for me and I am keeping up-to-date with German current affairs, TV programmes, literature and multimedia. I also produce materials based on the latest articles from German broadsheets, suitably adapted to my students’ levels.
Meet me presenting a cooking lesson for intermediates. Have fun and maybe see you soon.
