DEUTSCH /GERMAN LESSONS FOR PRIMARY /SECONDARY
GERMAN LESSONS FOR STUDENTS FROM PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS - ALL GRADES
I'm a german tutor (Germanistik, German Literature) with a long experience teaching german in language schools and offering also individual tutoring.
I teach German as a Foreign Language (DaF) and German as a Second Language /Deutsch als Zweitsprache (DaZ). I accompany the students through the school year with the books and material of the school according to their grade. I know the Swiss School System as well as the content of every school year. Most of my students are going into Swiss Schools in Basel and Basel Land, other to the International Schools of Basel (SIS and ISB).
I always create a friendly and relaxing atmosphere for my students, that they feel comfortable and have good learning conditions, and I consider their personality. I support them in grammar, orthography, amplifying their vocabulary, secureness of speaking, writing and preparing book presentations
HOMEWORK: I do their homework with them or correct them
GRAMMAR: I give support to make a good grammar base and to develop a clear understanding of the german grammar (4 Fälle, Artikel, Zeiten, unregelmäßige Verben etc.). Therefore I include a Grammarbook on a A, B or C-level, according to the students level
WRITING OF TEXTS: I help them writing texts or essays: text and sentence structure, creating and bring together ideas, how to connect and begin sentences and amplifying vocabulary
INTERPRETATION: I work with the understanding of different sorts of texts and essays of their grade: report, argumentation, literature, lyrics etc.
ORTHOGRAPHIE: Orthographic rules and dictates; Comma-rules
EXAMS: I prepare in an effective way and at time for their tests, already before they receive their "Lernziele" from school
UNDERSTANDING: I support a better understanding of the tasks of the exercices
EXTRA MATERIALS: I include extra materials and exercises into lessons according to their issues
LEARNING STRATEGIES: I show them learning strategies and a better organization, which they can apply for other subjects to be in the future more independent
CONTACT HEADTEACHER: If requested, I offer to get in contact with their headteachers (per mail or phone) to support my students in the best possible way
OTHER SUBJECTS: I also support in NMG and other subjects if necessary
E- AND P-LEVEL: I prepare for the transition to Secondary School for the P-Level and for the „Übertrittsprüfung“ (transition exam)
HOLIDAY COURSES: I offer holiday-courses to repeat themes of the school year and to have time to work with special weaknesses and gaps. I also try to prepare some things in advance to have a good beginning of the new school year
MOTIVATION: I always motivate my students to begin to like their subject and to stay focussed to achieve their aims
My hourly rate: 50 CHF / h (60 min.)
