Personal Description:

I am a registered secondary teacher with a PhD in German literature and philosophy. I have extensive teaching experience in the fields of German language, English, English as a second language, and music. I also work as a German to English translator and editor, and am passionate about learning and creating learning environments in which students thrive.

Tutoring Experience:

Graduate Diploma in Secondary Teaching from Victoria University of Wellington
Relief lecturing and tutoring at Victoria University School of Languages and Cultures
Former ESOL teacher at Wall Street Institute, Germany
Teacher at the Goethe Institute, Wellington
Private teacher of Piano and German
Tutor in German, Music, English and English as a second language

Tutoring Approach:

I love teaching and helping students reach their potential. As a trained secondary school teacher, I am aware of the weaknesses of the current school system and really enjoy giving students the tools they need to succeed and to love their subjects.

For me, a positive, encouraging environment and having fun during lessons is key to helping students achieve their best.
