German for exams

German is a wise choice for GCSE and A-level since it gives you or your child great career opportunities. Many companies cannot fill their vacancies for German speaking employees and second language at graduate level opens many doors and let’s you stand out from the crowd!

Exam Boards and Goethe Institut

As an experienced GCSE and A-level teacher, I have in depth knowledge of major exam boards and German for exams. I am also familiar with the requirements for the A1-C2 exams of the Goethe-Institut (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). I am currently preparing young people and professionals of all ages for these exams whereby some of them are aiming at spending some of their professional life in a German speaking country. Equally I have supported students at university level.

Personalized German tuition

Whatever your exam, please get in touch and discuss, how I can support you or your child! After an initial assessment, I will plan my lessons concentrating on the aspects which are difficult and, of course, practise all disciplines required in the exam: Reading, Listening, Speaking, Writing and at higher level Translation and Grammar. The aim is to get the best possible exam result for you or your child! With knowledge of question styles, sample answers, I am able to prepare you for the exam style required. We will also go through practice papers, so you or your child will be confident in answering them. In addition to that, I have access to AQA’s Support Programme for fundamental skills in languages following the Covid 19 lock down, so I can help you or your child close any gaps in learning.

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.

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.
