German Tuition - to get it RIGHT go native

I am a native German speaker with a passion to teach!

I have studied several foreign languages including English, Spanish, French and Latin. Hence, I know the joy, challenges and frustrations involved in acquiring a foreign language.

I am a scientist. Along with research, teaching has been an important part of my career. Professionally, I developed and presented lectures covering cutting edge technologies, and, I tutored undergraduate students in scientific subjects. Privately, I have tutored students in German.

Over the years, I have learned how to learn, and, most importantly for you, how to teach. I am patient and offer a supportive, flexible and effective learning environment tailored to your needs.

I look forward to your call to arrange a free consultation to discuss your needs and expectations. Bis bald!

Language

German (Introduction, Intermediate, Advanced)

"I am a secondary school teacher and a mother of two who decided to enhance my skill set by undertaking a Certificate in Languages at University. Due to my other commitments I had to undertake the course as a distance education student and I found it very difficult to make sense of the course material posted out to me. There were no recorded lectures or tutorials to follow and I found I needed some help. I started working with Erika Hild at the start of 2010 for an hour a week face to face. From the start she was understanding, supportive and friendly. It was a pleasure to come to tutoring. Erika has an extensive knowledge of German grammar and an exceptional ability to clarify concepts by choosing approaches that suit the individual learner. I can clearly remember the “ah ha” moment I had when the function of Konjunctive II suddenly became clear to me. I had poured over text books, written notes and attempted countless exercises but it was Erika’s explanation that finally made the pieces fit together. The support she offers with resources, emails, audio files and every day texts is invaluable. After every session I would find an email with the work covered that session, resources to help me and clear goals to direct my learning. We worked on grammar, speaking, reading, listening and writing. In every area Erika had the ability to support my learning and managed to identify my weaknesses and find solutions to the problems. As a teacher myself, I admire the commitment she has to her students and the sound approach she has to instruction. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking a tutor. If you are committed to improving your skills Erika is the person to ensure you have the supported needed to achieve your goals."
