I am currently in the second year of my PhD in pure mathematics at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory (Imperial, UCL, and King's). Before that, I was an undergraduate at the University of Queensland, Australia, where I earned a Bachelor of Science with Honours Class I with an extended major in Mathematics. I also have a Diploma of Languages majoring in German, and spent a year of my undergraduate degree studying in Munich. As an undergraduate, I gained a variety of experience from both private tutoring and teaching in university environments for students ranging from high school to undergraduate level. Before I began university I did a gap year working for a prep school in Surrey, where I primarily helped students between the ages of 8 and 13 who were struggling in class and/ or being disruptive. I also helped prepare students for the 11 and 13+ exams. I believe that mathematics is an under-appreciated discipline, and I have a passion for teaching maths in an intuitive and relatable way that applies real-world examples. I have ample experience in communicating complicated ideas to students of all abilities and in guiding students to their own understanding.
Cambridge-educated multilingual social scientist (English, French, German, and Italian), and trained in various fields of the social and cultural studies (PhD and MPhil in Anthropology; MSc (Sociology); and Postgraduate Specialisation in Technology & Sustainable Development) welcomes queries to support students with/without special educational needs to accomplish their courses at any level of the primary, secondary, and tertiary curriculum. In my interactions with students, I work with their strengths to build up their scholastic abilities and capacities with a focus-driven, multi-pronged approach that creates an immersive experience and enters on the individual and specific requirements of the student thereby stimulating creative and imaginative thinking. Colleagues and students value and appreciate my mental agility, sharp analytical sense, interdisciplinary knowledge and skills (developed on four government-sponsored grants at European and Asian universities; all top 25 in THE Ranking), and my constructive and positive outlook. I am well-versed in intercultural communication, discreet, and yes, very committed to the tasks at hand.
I studied to teach English, Spanish and History at the University of Vienna. I am currently working as a Language Assistant for German in Hillingdon which I enjoy very much. Furthermore, I have 4 years of experience in tutoring in various subjects such as English (as a foreign language), French, Spanish, German, History and Geography. I started tutoring when I was still in school and enjoyed it so much I decided to proceed with a career in teaching and continued to tutor. I enjoy working with children, teenagers and young adults and it is my goal to help them reach their potential and make learning fun at the same time. This means that I try to use different things for my lessons such as texts, newspaper articles, music, vocabulary trainers, etc. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, meeting my friends and travelling. I also have an interest in sports, art, music and culture.
I studied German at the University of Leeds, lived in Germany for a year and worked as a German speaking sales executive for a year at native level. I have 3 years teaching experience in a secondary school and have tutored and motivated students to reach their full potential. I am interested in the culture of Germany and always try to bring cultural factors into my lessons. I believe everyone should visit Germany and would be able to advise in where to stay, location and general knowledge about how to get around the area! Available in the weekdays and at weekends to tutor children or adults

Of note here is my post as Language Teacher in various schools in Hull, where I was responsible for teaching secondary school children French and German, marking their work and preparing lessons. Further, I have held a post as Educational Assistant at the Museum of Bath at Work where I was responsible for carrying out and preparing formal and informal learning sessions for adults and school-age children. Lastly, I worked as Nursery Assistant for a German nursery where I supervised up to 15 children and engaged them in structured activities. While in these posts I have learned about formal and informal learning, teaching, public speaking, lesson preparation and how to relate to children. I have also learned to work on my own initiative and as part of a team. In addition to my education work, I have completed a Preparing to Teach in Life Long Learning course as well as various short courses on education in a museum setting.
Hi, I'm Susanne, a language tutor with over 10 years experience principally teaching German and English, and additionally French, to a broad range of students from professional backgrounds, from large corporate companies down to smaller institutions and private clients. My experience covers teaching individuals as well as groups, ranging from the introduction of base concepts for complete beginners (A1), through to advanced level and conversational training (C2) for the very experienced. I also help with exam preparation, i.e. GCSE, A-Levels and Goethe-Certificate. My first years of teaching focused on pupils and after school tutoring whilst I was studying Product Design in Germany. I took up teaching again in 2013 in London and acquired my TEFL qualification. This allowed me to reach out to private professionals and also to teach in companies, who offer their employees language classes on a regular basis to improve their business relationships with Germany. My approach is very much tailored to each learner’s specific needs. I’m a very dedicated and personable teacher who enjoys the variety of different individuals and finding ways to help them learn best. I am very passionate about teaching and enjoy all aspects that it encompasses. I'm keen on continuing to develop my language knowledge outside of teaching. I have basic knowledge of Italian and have taken up Spanish, which is very useful for me to also help Spanish speaking students learn other languages, as having knowledge of their language allows me to draw parallels between the two, and so accelerate their learning. I very much welcome the variety of students’ backgrounds and can often explain grammar structures in comparing and relating to their own language. I also offer field trips for those who are a bit more advanced in German or English and wish to learn and have fun to express themselves about specific topics, i.e. art, education, politics, or train the distinct use of their linguistic style, i.e. stylistic devices, figures of speech or set locutions. This could be a visit to a museum or to the Royal College of Art, where we look at works and talk about them, put them in context etc. Outside of teaching I love being outdoors, in particular rock climbing and hiking and exploring new places. I also am a very keen baker. Testimonials of my previous clients: Michael Penn / Professor, Stanford University (10.08.2018) "Susanne is an amazingly gifted pedagogue and a great German teacher. Regardless of your level, you’ll learn tons working with her. Susanne’s enthusiasm and love for the language is contagious. She constantly finds innovative approaches to help one improve—whether they be articles tailored to your interests, word games, or museum trips to see German artists. She is extremely patient and is able to find exactly the right level of intervention to help lessen mistakes but still boosting your confidence. Her background and even her previous work in design give her teaching a depth and breadth that is wonderful (and fun) to be a part of. She perfectly balances organized (she always has a clear learning plan) with flexible (she tailors things, both beforehand and-the-fly, depending on what’s happening in the classroom). Because German is essential for my work, I’ve had dozens of German tutors over the years and Susanne is among the very best." Oliver Smeeth / Corporate Cousel (5.06.2018) "I’m so pleased I found Susanne after struggling to make progress with other teachers and classes. Susanne quickly worked out how best to help me tailoring each lesson to address gaps in my knowledge and delivering content in a way that works for me. She has also been incredibly flexible working around my sometimes long and unpredictable working hours, which I’ve really appreciated. Overall Susanne is an incredibly dedicated, personal and professional German teacher all goes above and beyond to help clients make real progress. I really look forward to my classes with her. Thanks Susanne for making learning German fun again!" Ann-Catherine Mathias, mother of 13 year-old pupil (4.07.2017) "Susanne Rueb has been tutoring my son Niklas (aged 13) in German and French for over 9 months on an almost weekly basis. She is a lovely friendly person who has managed to motivate our son to concentrate for 2 hours on a Saturday morning, which I had thought impossible. As an Anglo-German family we took the decision to send our children to the German school in London but have found that, despite speaking German at home, our eldest son needed some additional help to improve particularly his written German. He was also beginning to struggle in French and had lost all motivation or ambition in relation to this subject. As is often the case, he found it hard to work with a parent and so we looked for a tutor would encourage and motivate him. We were incredibly fortunate to find Susanne. Niklas responded incredibly well to her from the start. She manages to structure the lessons in a way that keep Niklas interested and engaged. She prepares material for each lesson and makes sure that she is aware of curriculum and tests planned at school, so that they can practice appropriately. Susanne often goes over homework and previous tests, which Niklas has found particularly helpful. She frequently brings additional teaching materials that help to make lessons more fun. Niklas really likes working with her. Since Susanne started working with him, Niklas’ written German (and his corresponding grades) have improved significantly. In French the gradual deterioration in his grade has stopped and they are improving. Whereas he was heading towards a 4 (German marking - an English D) he is now working towards a 2 (B). I would certainly recommend Susanne as a tutor."
Hello / hallo zusammen! I'm Helena, I am a tutor and professional actor based in central London. Prior to training as an actor, I studied German Literature at Oxford University, where I obtained a 2.1. My A-Levels were French, History, German and English Literature in which I ranked top 20 in the UK. I have tutored students in the capacity of GCSE - Sixth Form classroom assistant, 1:1 and as a private tutor for Oxbridge Applications. My teaching ethos in my core subjects English Literature and German, as well as secondary subject, revolves around the principle that once you know 'why' you will know 'how'. I encourage my students in their independent learning focussing on providing individually tailored support that enables the student to help themselves, be it for the purpose of life-long learning or excelling in exams. I am available on a flexible basis to support one-off to long-term tutoring needs. Helena
A dedicated individual who uses an enthusiastic approach to problem solving and achieving goals. I possess over 9 years' progressive and significant experience working in the tutoring sector. I have completed my Masters degree in Neuropsychology at UCL. In addition, I enjoy teaching and have worked at a number of tuition centres before. I also provide help in writing essays at degree level. Moreover, I use Student-Centered Learning. I always put the student in control of learning processes and methodology. This makes learning more collaborative and cooperative.
I am a fully qualified teacher with a 2:1 degree in French and German and a distinction in spoken French from the University of Nottingham. I have over seven years teaching and tuition experience, in institutions such as The Latymer School in Enfield and Bristol Grammar School. My last French AS Level class achieved 100% A grades. I have considerable expertise in helping and motivating my students to achieve their full potential. I can offer French or German tuition from absolute beginner level to degree level with in-depth exam preparation, including for the 13+ Common Entrance Examination. I am also very happy to offer sessions for children or adults who want to learn a language in their free time for fun. Skype sessions are also possible. My lessons will be tailored to each student’s needs and will move at a pace that is suitable for them, allowing them to grow in confidence, whilst also being challenged.
