Jane took time to understand my reasons for wanting to learn German and what I was hoping to achieve by having a German tutor. After having spent a couple of years trying various self-study books, Duolingo and other online apps, having Jane as a tutor completely changed my understanding of the German language. Instead of learning stock phrases, Jane taught me the building blocks of the language onwards, this gave me a solid foundation to advance. I found the lessons varied and interesting. I would highly recommend Jane as a tutor!
Jane is a diligent and thorough language tutor, with a keen eye for detail. She has a gentle but firm approach with students and is able to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Through this understanding she then constructs a way of working which supports the individual needs of the learner, encouraging students to succeed by giving them confidence in their abilities.
I have spent the last year learning German with Jane and my knowledge and capabilities have improved greatly during that time. I am currently in Germany utilising the skills Jane has taught me. She was patient and an understanding teacher. I really enjoyed my time learning with her. I would recommend her to any aspiring student.
Jane has been teaching us German for almost two years, we received private lessons which we felt have helped us immensely as it meant our lessons were focused directly on our learning requirements. We felt that we have learnt a great deal from Jane. The lessons were well structured and Jane’s teaching style we found easy to understand. Jane has given us the confidence to make now the move to Germany and we would like to thank Jane for her support and help with making this possible.
