"Throughout the latter half of 2013 I received tutoring from Erika for my HSC German Continuers course, and by extension, my own interest in the country and language. The regular sessions we spent weekly over Skype (and the flexibility that provided) from May to October improved my ability enormously. Despite becoming a part of my HSC studies fairly late, she was able to take my somewhat lackluster base knowledge, show me how to improve and cement what I already knew. Her patience, skill and politeness saved me in no small part from meltdown, and helped me to make it through the exams which I had been so afraid of. Furthermore, in light of the release of my results it’s worth noting that my exam mark rose from my internal assessments (before I was with Erika) – in itself a testimonial of her skill. Erika’s teaching style is personalised and her knowledge (of both German and English) is extensive, whilst her adaptable nature (focusing on the areas of the exam such as speaking, writing, grammar etc.) made learning easy and achievable. I would absolutely recommend Erika."
