Private instruction can allow you to improve your German under the tutelage of an expert.

How can a private Boston German tutor near me help me or my student?

A private Boston German tutor can study with you at your own pace. You can take your time to ask questions without having to worry about running out of time. You can always set up more mentoring sessions if you need to. Private instructors can cater to your or your student's needs. They can cover a lot of ground or spend more time on a single topic. If your student is having difficulty keeping up with the pace of their in-school German classes, a private mentor can help them review what they learned and give them clarity. If your student wants to go beyond what they are learning in school, a private mentor can delve deeper into topics they might be interested in, such as German history or culture.

Private Boston German tutors can help you with German grammar. German grammar rules are very different than English and can be confusing to beginners. For example, nouns are inflected based on their case, gender, and number. Nominative and accusative are two examples of cases. Nouns can be masculine, feminine, or neuter, and can be singular or plural. This is important, as the article accompanying a noun can change based on the noun's case, gender, or number, a concept that does not exist in English. Students must also learn the six tenses that exist in German: present, present perfect, simple past, past perfect, future, and future perfect. This can be confusing at first, but with practice and the help of your mentor, you can get better.

Boston German tutors can conduct conversations with you entirely in German, depending on your skills. This can help you improve your fluency, reduce hesitation in your speech, and improve your understanding of spoken German. Practicing the language that you are learning with a fluent speaker is always helpful, but with private mentoring, you can also get instant constructive feedback. Your instructor can correct your pronunciation and grammar mistakes. They can also introduce new words to help you expand your vocabulary. German has compound words, which are long words formed out of several smaller words. This can be confusing at first, but a private educator can help you get the hang of it.

You can sign up for private Boston German tutoring either online or in person. One of the benefits of private instruction is the flexibility it can offer you. Whether you want to study during the daytime, in the evening, or on Saturdays and Sundays, we can help you find a mentor who can work with your schedule.

If you choose to study with a private Boston German tutor over the internet, you can use our Live Learning Platform from wherever you have access to the web. We have a video chat tool that you can use to interact with your mentor in real time as if you were sitting face-to-face. There is also a live document editor and a virtual whiteboard that can be used for learning new words or the correct spelling of German text. Your mentor can use integrated practice problems and other tools to enhance your sessions. There will also be recordings of all your sessions available for you to watch at any time.

You can also opt to meet your instructor in person. You can arrange a meeting at your favorite coffee shop, your house, or a local library, such as the South End Branch of the Boston Public Library.

Online German courses are also available. Course sections take place at different times, offering you flexibility.

Session Summaries by German Tutors

Boston, MA German tutoring
Today was my first session with the student.  We read some of his chapter book from school and went over some strategies to help him slow down his reading to help him understand what he reads.  He volunteered information on what he thinks he needs help with, understanding what he reads and some math problems. We also started a book report that is due next week.  It is a 3 paragraph letter and we planned out all three and he wrote the introductory paragraph.  He felt comfortable doing the rest on his own during the week.

The student had a midterm review assignment on the phylums Mollusca and Annelida. I let him try to answer the questions on his own first and then helped him if he couldn't and corrected him if he was wrong. I guided him to which readings the answers were in, or helped him figure out the question logically in some cases.

The student was working on implicit differentiation and parametric equations. The problems she was assigned were very simplistic, so I made up some difficult ones to get the process down so she isn't surprised on a test.

In this session the student and I covered new vocabulary and his homework. We have started to familiarize ourselves with new phrases, nouns, and verbs so that he can start his new chapter with a good grade in the upcoming vocabulary quiz.
