Only students can contact tutors.
I will make the best resources available to meet your learning goals. I will give you honest advice and guidance, be it about setting realistic language learning goals to exploring career pathways in the field of any foreign language in India or abroad. I will provide you with the most realistic approach to studying, I will work on your strengths and weaknesses, not just for cramming, but to really understand and learn the language through context.
I have been teaching German to students of all age (from 10 yo to 46 yo) for the last 1 year. I have finished till B2 and have taught till the level A2. Even though the course's study material is fixed, I offer students a curated Vocab+Grammar Handout for thorough grammar and/ or vocab and extra practice questions on demand. These are rather curated and personalized handouts to make sure that the student's needs are met. I am flexible with my approach, I am a native speaker of Marathi and I also speak Hindi. I believe that the most efficient way of acquiring a language is through your native tongue, which is why I often give examples and draw parallels between German and students' native language which makes the experience even more fun.
My fees (in INR) are 15k for A1 and 20k for A2. They come to less than 300-400 INR an hour. These include original books and all the relevant study material. Drop me a message if you want to pursue two courses at once.
I also refer 'Studio D 1', 'Einfach Grammatik' apart from the course book 'Netzwerk' and 'Aspekte' which is being used by Max Mueller Bhavan/ Goethe-Institut India. I make sure that in my class there's equal emphasis on all the four skills of a language - listening, reading, writing and speaking. Along with this, I also offer my students some short stories from 'Cafe in Berlin' which are easy to read and to learn from.
As for the final exam, I go with the standard way of exam that is conducted at Max Mueller than focusing only on paper based grammar test. The final exam will also be a test of acquiring all the four skills. I also provide 3 full-length mock tests.
I also offer intensive training for Goethe-Zertifikat A1: Start Deutsch 1 and/ or Fit in Deutsch 1, Goethe-Zertifikat A2 and B1. I have taught young adults and professionals at German Language Institutes in Mumbai.
