How can a German tutor help you?

Varsity Tutors can help if you need a Portland German tutor for yourself or your student. Portland German tutoring can be useful for professionals and students alike. Whether you or a student in your home is learning German for a school requirement or for future travel, a private instructor can work with you. Having a private mentor can be a helpful way to work toward your goals in learning German.

How can a Portland German tutor near me help me become fluent?

Understanding the German language can feel challenging. Maybe you are a professional who has to do business in Germany, and you want to understand the language before you go. Or perhaps you have a student in school who is serious about learning German as a second language. Whatever your goals are, having a Portland German tutor can help you break down difficult topics and make it easier to learn.

Portland German tutors can provide you with academic help in a one-on one-setting. Your private instructor can identify your weaknesses and strengths when it comes to learning German, and then create a customized lesson plan that helps you make the most of your time together. If you ever run into problems with a topic, such as learning how to pronounce certain words, you can ask your instructor to stop and help you go over them until you feel more confident.

Portland German tutors can help you by using their expertise to focus on topics you might want additional help with. This could include verb conjugation, which is necessary for the German language and can change depending on who or what is being discussed. The German language has six different tenses and uses articles with nouns, which are usually helpful to learn together.

Using simulated immersion in Portland German tutoring can help you build upon your knowledge of the language. You and your instructor can practice together and start off using short sentences if you are learning basic German. If you are planning a visit or need to speak with others in a professional setting, your instructor can teach you vocabulary that can be useful in business or other professional areas, and they can help you work on how to pronounce certain words.

How can I fit in time with Portland German tutors into my schedule?

Working with private instructors offers flexibility. We can take you or your student's schedule into account, along with any current learning needs. We then work to find someone who can match these needs, and who is available at a time that works best for you or your student. This allows you to focus on pursuing your German language goals when it is easiest for you.

Portland German tutoring can take place online or in person. Choosing to work online means you can save yourself a commute, while still working with your instructor face-to-face through the Live Learning Platform. You can use video chat to see and hear your instructor and make use of other tools that can assist you in learning German. These include a document editor that allows you to understand the written language and pronunciation, and the ability to watch previously recorded sessions to review material you want to go over again.

Perhaps you or your student would rather work with an instructor in-person. In that case, we can find someone in your area who is eager and willing to help you. You can meet at any location you'd like, such as your home or library. You can even meet at your school if you are a college student at a school such as Lewis & Clark College.

If you believe you or your student would benefit from a classroom setting, Varsity Tutors offers German language courses. Here, you have the chance to learn among fellow classmates from an expert instructor during live lessons that take place online. There are multiple course sections offered, with different days and times. This option allows you to enroll in one that meets your schedule and needs the best.

Get in touch with Varsity Tutors so we can help you get connected with a Portland German tutor. If you're concerned about handling your studies alone, we can normally help you get connected with an expert in as little as 24 hours. This can save you time and energy. Our educational consultants are standing by, and ready to help you get connected with someone who can work with you on your language skills and help you progress forward.

Session Summaries by German Tutors

Portland, OR German tutoring
Today the student and I worked on Econ and German II. She has her German II exam coming up and wanted to review her notes and study guides. German grammar is quite distinct from English grammar so we've been working on verb placement and the past tense, and have also done a refresher on possessive pronouns and pronouns in the accusative and dative forms. She is not planning on continuing with German past high school.

The race to finals begins! We returned today for a 3 session intensive week. Today we worked almost exclusively on testing strategies. We prepared rote answer formula and dissected the various German-language interrogative adverbs and pronouns. We will meet again Wednesday and Thursday for further cramming and practice.

During this session we focused on genitive adjectives and wrote eight sentences with different genitive adjectives. This exercise was crucial for understanding how nouns change with regard to genitive and gender and helped him understand the different roles. At this moment he is very good in differentiating the different rules with regard to gender. After this exercise I taught him how to distinguish between dative and accusative when dealing with two-way prepositions. After giving him a few examples and having him teach me why objects were one or the other case, he finally understood the concept. He will learn this during his class sessions but I found it fundamental to let him know in advance. This is because he will have an exam on Friday and I want him to do better than during his last test. I am hopeful that he will score better on the exam.

Today I was really glad to start working with the student again. We worked with a little illustrated map of a few town blocks, and started acquiring vocabulary that way. Next time we'll work on giving and receiving directions.
