About me

Hi, my name is Katerina and I graduated from the University of Oxford with a First-class degree in German in July 2017. I had a fantastic time studying for 4 years, especially enjoying the compulsory third year abroad, which I spent in Berlin. I was a student of German literature and philosophy at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. During the academic holidays I also worked on a 2 ½ month production of German novelist Alfred Döblin’s work ‘Berlin Alexanderplatz’ at the Deutsches Theater as a...

Hi, my name is Katerina and I graduated from the University of Oxford with a First-class degree in German in July 2017. I had a fantastic time studying for 4 years, especially enjoying the compulsory third year abroad, which I spent in Berlin. I was a student of German literature and philosophy at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. During the academic holidays I also worked on a 2 ½ month production of German novelist Alfred Döblin’s work ‘Berlin Alexanderplatz’ at the Deutsches Theater as an assistant to the director.

I would love to share my acquired knowledge and my passion for everything German: from the literature and film through to the culture and food!

In my spare time I love to go the theatre, watch films (especially foreign ones!), read and do sport.

About my sessions

Structure – Tutorials will begin with establishing the area that is in need of clarification or consolidation. They will continue with exercises, examples, tasks and challenges and thorough explanations whilst, of course, stopping throughout to take time for the student’s questions.

Structure – Tutorials will begin with establishing the area that is in need of clarification or consolidation. They will continue with exercises, examples, tasks and challenges and thorough explanations whilst, of course, stopping throughout to take time for the student’s questions.

Preparation – I have kept all my German work from school through to university including everything for the Oxford entrance and interview process. This will ensure focus using previous questions and essay questions and past papers. However, in order to keep tutorials exciting and fresh I shall also be preparing my own questions and tasks tailored specifically to the student.

Delivery – I believe it is imperative to understand that every student is different and has specific ways of understanding and methods of learning so it is important to listen to the student’s individual needs. I find it also crucial not to lecture a student, but to keep sessions exciting by posing interesting and challenging questions in order to engage them fully in the learning process.

Encouraging learning – It is important that learning continues outside of the tutorial so I will provide something to be prepared for each next tutorial as a way to draw out the student’s greatest potential and secure the best results.
