Aishwarya Degaonkar German Tutor | Psych, Hist Tutor

I will make the best resources available to meet your learning goals. I will provide you with the most realistic approach to learning and studying, I will work on your strengths and weaknesses, not just for cramming, but for you to really understand and learn the language through context. I have been teaching German to students of all ages (from 10 yo to 58 yo) for the 4 last years. I attended the classes from A1 to C1 at Goethe Institute/Max Mueller Bhavan, Kalaghoda. I have written the B2 Exam.

For German, I am offering a Grammar+Vocab course for A1 and A2 at INR500/hr and for B1 and B2 INR 650/hr. The duration of each course is 30 hours, and it is inclusive of all the resources needed. These courses of 30hrs are priced at INR 15,000 for A1/A2 and INR 19,500 for B1/B2.

For learners in India, full courses of A1, A2 and B1 are now available as the book distributor has started shipping. The fees for those courses are INR 17,000 for A1 40hrs | INR 22,000 for A2 45hrs | INR 26,000 for B1 50hrs. These courses can also be availed hourly at INR 550/hr. The full courses for A1, A2 and B1 can also be conducted via BlinkLerning, upon request. These platforms offer you a one year license to use the books, audio, videos and complementary resources.

All the fees include study resources.

I use Microsoft Whiteboard with a digital pen and graphic tablet in my Skype Sessions to give you a classroom-like feel during the video call. So far, I have used Netzwerk, Menschen, Begegnungen, Studio D, Themen Aktuell and Tangram Aktuell Series, I am comfortable to teach you with any of these.

Even though the course's study material is fixed, I offer students a curated Vocab+Grammar Handout for thorough grammar and/or vocab + extra practice questions on demand. 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.

I am flexible with my approach, I am a native speaker of Marathi and I also speak Hindi. I also teach Hindi and Marathi to those who are planning to visit (whether for work/tourism) Indian subcontinent, Mumbai, Delhi and other Indian Cities. I am a native speaker of both languages and I have completed my higher secondary level with Marathi as the first language and Hindi as the second language. I will also teach you how to read and write the Devanagari Script.

All the courses will always include original books and all the relevant study material. I believe that once you pay for your education, you need not spend an extra dime on the resources. I will be at your disposal until I have cleared 100% of your doubts. The aim for me is that you understand better than I could when I was a student.

I have taught over 80+ young adults and professionals at 'Second Tongue', Vashi and Ghatkopar (Navi Mumbai and Mumbai). Overall, I have taught 240+ students. I am teaching German A1-A2 from Pune at Proficient Test Prep based in Amravati, Maharashtra via Skype and have received only positive feedback. I refer to the same books offered by the institute and share the screen to give more of a 'classroom' look. I am also tutoring IB Students for German and Psychology in Bangalore via Skype.

Calm and patient, supportive and encouraging tutor

I remember, in January, I came to you with no prior information about the German language's scope and prospect a question always keeps on arising should I learn it? But thank's to you, you not only told me about the opportunities but even guided me how to get into it & grab that opportunity, I appreciate you helping in deciding to learn german language. I have completed my A1 & A2 level under your guidance and support and I must say, I was never expecting I will be able to grab its all because of your hard work. I admire your patience & appreciate individual approach & 1-1 interaction, which was really fruit full. Thank you for your hard work and being so patient with me during the whole journey, I wish you all the best as you are doing a great job as we need a teacher/mentor like you.

A straightforward, systematic and fun learning experience!

I had Aishwarya tutor me for levels A1 and A2 of German, and I highly recommend her classes. Her approach to teaching the language is very systematic and not monotonous. She is also quite resourceful and always sharing more and more learning material according to your need, which has been of utmost help. Be it simply stories for light reading in German or exercises to improve grammar. Also, having one-on-one sessions is of great advantage as you can ask as many doubts as you want (I sure did lol). She was patient with answering all my doubts and didn't make it seem like any doubt big or small was silly.

This kind of encouragement of teachers enables honesty within the students as well.

One of the best tutors I've had

Amazing teacher. The classes were well organized and far from monotonous. She has a very good understanding of the language and the teaching process. She uses lots of other resources than simply sticking to the textbook. Highly recommended.
