Tutor Bio
I am a German native level speaker and have a Masters degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from the Georg-August University Göttingen, one of the top German Universities. I have been preparing students for their Leaving Cert exams in both German and Biology for 10 years. 

For those wanting to prepare for the German Oral Exam, we spend some time working on their pronunciation to bring them as close as possible to a native-level speaker standard. I work 1 on 1 with the students so that the material for the Oral Exam is unique to them and something that they enjoy talking about. I have a range of supplementary material to cover Grammar, Sentence Structure and other topics a bit more in-depth than is possible in School. I talk with the student to identify any areas they may be struggling with and try to bring them up as much as we can in these areas.

In my tutoring, I use an evidence-based approach so that each session maximizes student learning. After working with a student on a regular basis, I aim to identify and implement the techniques that are going to be most beneficial to the individual. In preparation for the first few sessions, I ask tutees to let me know the topics recently studied, or those that they would like to support, so I can prepare an enjoyable, but challenging the first session tailored to the needs of the student.

The first grind is always given free of charge. The cost of grinds is 40EUR per hour. Discounts are available for group sessions. If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact me.

    Nora Keating Mattes is an excellent tutor! We worked on my grammar and essay writing. He also helped me proof my college work. Mattes was great at explaining any mistakes I made in German and giving me new vocab and phrases to use in essay writing.

She began to look forward to each lesson and her results in school increased a lot. I can highly recommend Mattes to anyone who is looking for a tutor
