German Tutors in Winchester and German Tutoring in Winchester
Hi! Mark Bamforth languages tutor based in the Winchester UK area. I offer tuition locally in Winchester and online to you - anywhere in the world! My background: I read Modern Languages (major German and minor French) at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, then completed a postgraduate diploma in European Business Management. I am very enthusiastic about Europe in general, specifically Germany and France - their language, culture and people. I spent an academic year at the University of Tübingen during my degree, two months on placement in Nancy (Lorraine), and then three months on a work placement in Hannover during my postgraduate diploma. I also have a TESOL certificate and am a qualified TEFL teacher.

My BA Honours Degree which combined German Studies with Business was completed between institutions in UK (University of Portsmouth) and in Germany (Fachhochsshule Munster & FH Regensburg). Since graduating, I spent some time living and working in Munich before returning to UK. Throughout my professional career in the commercial world, I have used German frequently and visited Germany, Austria, Switzerland on a regular basis. My approach is primarily exam and curriculum focused, although with any language, you also need to learn the rules and the exceptions rather than just 'the answers' in order to really build a solid foundation towards mastering it at a higher level. For adult conversational German the approach is different and focuses more on vocabulary together with basic grammatical rules and structures. I have tutored GSCE German students with great success and am very comfortable teaching up to this level. I can also support A-Level students, having studied this and far beyond, although tutoring experience has not extended yet to this level.
