For which classes do we offer tuition in German?
If your child has problems keeping up with German lessons, it is advisable to think about tutoring. Often pupils lose the joy of the subject German and their school grades drop. The faster the causes are resolved, the quicker problems in German can be dealt with.
Special offers for literacy (LRS)
Reading weaknesses (LRS) can be present if the ability to read and write does not correspond to the state of development in students. The LRS manifests itself, for example, in a large number of errors when reading aloud as well as constant self-corrections. It is often a great challenge for students with LSR to understand the meaning of a text. Reading competence is usually limited and manifests itself through tedious reading of text modules and sentences word by word.
In the meantime, almost all German textbooks work in spelling training using the so-called FRESCH method. The basis of the method is the multi-channel learning of spelling at the beginning of elementary school: It is based on five strategies: children recognize 50% of German words by swinging, the other half by lengthening, deriving, rules and keywords.
However, especially in grammar school textbooks, the corresponding exercise material is very tight after the introduction of a strategy or a new topic. Often only the basic strategies (spoken writing, lengthening and deriving), sometimes slightly modified, are introduced. Regular exercise phases are usually not provided. Following the introduction of the strategies, work is often introduced according to individual error focuses. This approach creates additional clutter in their heads, especially for students who need simplified knowledge of the rules due to a learning disability / learning blockade.
This is where individual support must begin and the spelling strategies must be consolidated through targeted practice and internalized for further school careers. LRS pupils can buy additional exercise material. Reading and spelling skills are an absolute prerequisite for enjoying lessons and understanding and solving tasks precisely. Along the southern Weinstrasse, our qualified teachers offer special tutoring services to individually promote reading and spelling skills. We offer private lessons in our catchment area between Neustadt (Weinstrasse) and Landau.
Focus of our tutoring in the LRS area
3rd / 4th Class: Introduction and automation of speech swings, speech writing and the addition of the simple strategies of lengthening and deriving. First exercises on the individual strategies, then texts in which the students have to apply all strategies.
5th / 6th Class: Depending on the performance of the students, continuation from class 3/4, now differentiated according to difficulties: simplest exercises for the individual strategies Exercises for the combined application of all strategies Expansion of basic knowledge by introducing the group of keywords, e.g. using the index card system and exercises.
7th grade: Basic exercises and extensions according to the individual level of ability in time-fixed RS-sequences, depending on the textbook used, high-performing students can then also work according to the focus of errors or, instead of spelling exercises, give completely different tasks to understand text and write.
