I am a 25-year old qualified native German teacher living in Germany.
I can teach all levels of German and help with all different reasons why you would want to learn German - business, school(GCSE, A-level), exams, vacation, interest.
Born and brought up in Germany, I've always had an interest in languages, different cultures and political issues. During my Bachelor’s degree in Politics and Philosophy I have constantly taught private lessons in English and German as well as engaged in organisations which focus on education.
After graduating from University I decided to enter the teaching profession and become trained in England as a modern foreign languages teacher, due to my high interest in the English language and culture. I finished my teacher’s training with ‚outstanding‘ and had the chance to train for six months at one of England’s highly regarded independent schools. During my training year I have constantly taught over Skype and really enjoyed this flexible, interesting approach to language teaching and the possibility to meet people from all over the world.
Currently I am teaching in an International School German, Ethics and Politics in Berlin. I have years of experience in teaching German language now and have been teaching many adults through language schools (for example EF language school) and online tutoring.
I focus on strengthen mainly all 4 skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking, but like to emphasise speaking skills to build up your confidence in using the language abroad.
During the lesson, you will have access to my online materials which will help your understanding.
I offer to set homework via Email which I can also correct every time - if you like. This would give you the opportunity to keep with your language learning during every lesson.
Mareike is a very patient teacher. She is very flexible and very able to adapt the lesson to what I need. She makes German very easy to learn and understand
Marieke is very patient teacher and provided lots of clear and easy to understand teaching materials. Good first lesson. Looking forward to more and getting to grips with German language
