GCSE German or A-level German is a wise choice since it undeniably gives you or your child great career opportunities. That is to say, many companies cannot fill their vacancies for German-speaking employees and unquestionably a second language at graduate level opens many doors. As a result, this lets you stand out from the crowd!

Hi Frau Wardle – I just received my German results and I got a 9 in German. Thank you so much for all your help – I really think without your help this would have been way more difficult to get.
Frau Wardle’s lessons are always really focused and engaging! She helped me learn German by finding resources based on my interests which really helped the informative and entertaining aspects of lessons. I especially struggled with grammatical cases and when to use which case, but Frau Wardle’s tuition helped me understand how and when they are used – in a fun way, of course!Neal, GCSE Online Student

Susanne is fabulous. She has helped my child immensely by tailoring her teaching to the learning style of my daughter. In addition, she has helped give her confidence that she can do it. The improvement in my daughter’s grades since being with Susanne is testament to her teaching.Lesley, mother of GCSE German student
Since Susanne has started tutoring me in German about a year ago. My confidence and ability to speak German has massively increased and she has also helped me to improve my grades in school. She is so patient and willing to answer any questions I have. Susanne always finds interesting and engaging methods to help me understand areas with which I struggle. Being a native German tutor, she is also able to give me unique insight to the language and culture. I cannot thank her enough for her continued support and encouragement.Serena
