Online Tutoring with a live teacher
Online over Zoom
Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 17:00 – 19:00 CET
Our online tutoring is a free service for you: Here you have the opportunity to ask a speakeasy teacher questions outside of your course time - for example, about topics that you didn't quite understand in class or homework problems which you need some help with. Even if you have missed a deadline and are catching up on the content yourself, the online tutoring is a good supplement to clarify open questions.
There are two dates per week: on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 17:00 - 19:00 (CET). The online Tutoring takes place via Zoom where a teacher will be waiting to assist you.
If you registered for one of our group courses, then in the email with your main course login-link, you will also find a separate link to the Online Tutoring virtual classroom. First you will be taken to a waiting room where you may have to wait a few minutes. This allows us to determine the order in which participants have arrived. Our speakeasy teacher will then admit you to the Zoom room and you will have the opportunity to discuss your questions with them. The questions will be answered in the order that students arrive. We allow a maximum of 10 minutes per answer so that there is enough time for further questions. When the teacher has answered your questions, you can either log out of the online learning support or stay in the virtual room and listen to other participants' questions. Maybe you already know the answer to some of the questions or maybe other the participants will ask questions which are still interesting for you. Since the Online Tutoring is open to participants of all levels, it may happen that they ask questions on topics that are still above your current German level.
The teacher will spend a maximum of 5 or 10 minutes answering each question, in order to ensure that they able to answer as many questions as possible. You are free to stay for the entire 2-hour session and see the explanations to other student‘s questions, or you can leave after your question has been answered. Because the Online Tutoring sessions are open to students of all levels, do not be surprised if some of the other students ask questions that are still above your own level.
Please prepare your questions before the tutoring session. Be as specific as possible so that our speakeasy teacher understands exactly what you want to know.
You are welcome to come to the Online Tutoring with precise questions on specific topics.
Please be aware, however, that the Online Tutoring cannot be a complete catch-up appointment
for your course day. Rather, we want to give you the opportunity to clarify open questions
or to get help on specific topics. Our speakeasy teacher will be happy to answer your
questions. However, they will not be able to do this as thoroughly as your teacher in group
Our speakeasy teachers do their best to answer all questions. However, if there are many questions or many participants, it may be that not all topics can be answered during the two hours in which the Online Tutoring takes place. If this is the case for you, we would be happy to welcome you back at the next Online Tutoring session! Of course, you can always ask your teacher in the group course if you have any questions.
