Hi everyone!


My name is Marlies and I'm originally from Austria, but I live and study in Scotland. Besides being a university student, I am also teaching advanced German classes every week and I have been providing individual tutoring lessons to a wide variety of students over the years. From children to adults, complete beginners to proficient users - I have learned how to tailor a class to the student's specific needs and to help him or her achieve their language goals :)


As a German native speaker with an affinity for literature, I have a passion for German and I like to share it with other people. I think it's fantastic when someone choose to learn another language, but I also understand that it's at times a difficult progress and I love helping students overcome these hurdles.

About my sessions

In order to help students make the most of my lessons, I like to take some time to talk about the motivations and goals of the student - is he or she studying for specific tests? Are there any grammatical aspects they are struggling with? Or do they just want to practice German and improve their pronounciation?

In order to help students make the most of my lessons, I like to take some time to talk about the motivations and goals of the student - is he or she studying for specific tests? Are there any grammatical aspects they are struggling with? Or do they just want to practice German and improve their pronounciation?

Once that is figured out, I will give them some exercice and talk to them for a bit in German in order to assess their language level and see if there are any areas that need work. I then use that knowledge to tailor my lesson plans to the students.


I also think it is important to ensure the content of a lessons is stimulating and engaging. Therefore, I like to use a wide variety of text types, e.g. fairy tales, news articles, novels, comics, etc. Unless there is a very specific topic the student wants to work on, I like to teach German in a comprehensive way, focusing in equal parts on listening, speaking, writing and grammar.

Marlies really helped our son to prepare for his IB German oral exam - his subject teacher praised him for his improvement - he told him he had made the greatest improvement across his year.
