About me

Hi! I'm currently in my fourth year studying German and Business Studies at the University of Warwick and have a particular interest in German grammar and translation. I developed my passion for the German language and culture early in my time at school and love to share this! I recently returned from my year abroad in Germany so I have a good knowledge of current German culture and experience of using the language every day - I also started to learn Portuguese whilst I was there so can understand the earlier struggles of learning a language too!

I have previously mentored students in languages and other subjects during my time at school and remain eager to help in anyway I can.

I also formed part of the German Society Exec in my second year which allowed me to meet lots of other students and get together for Kaffee und Kuchen on a regular basis.

About my sessions

My sessions will be tailored to individual needs, be it grammar, listening or speaking. Each session will have a goal to be met by the end - this will be set out at the beginning. I will target the session using the syllabus requirements and ensure that the content is relevant. Language learning is a marathon and not a race, it takes time to fully understand the language properly and I think it is important to keep up with vocabulary learning on a regular basis.


Sessions will usually begin with a quick chat in German to get going and encourage use of the language in an informal environment. I will then tailor the session as necessary and am happy to explain several times if required! At the end of the session, particularly where grammar problems are involved, I encourage the student to explain or summarise the session to check their own understanding.

Questions Emily has answered

When should I use the nominative case?

The nominative case is used for the subject of the verb, i.e. the noun doing the action. Consider this example: my brother has a dog. In this simple sentence, my brother is the subject of the verb as he owns the dog - mein Bruder hat einen Hund. The nominative case is also used with the verb 'sein', for example Mr. Mann is a good friend - Mr. Mann ist ein guter Freund. This is because Mr. Mann and the good friend are the same, hence the nominative case is used for both. Finally, the nominative case is used with nouns used in isolation, for example ein schöner Tag!
