Personal Description:

I am a semi-retired academic. I was a senior lecturer in German and Italian language and literature and taught various interdisciplinary courses in English, with an emphasis on Modernism. I have taught at secondary schools as well, namely teaching English as a second language. this included literature. I have a Phd in Comparative Literature from the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught language and literature for twenty odd years and have a relatively extensive knowledge of literature, not only in English. I have taught literature from Mediaeval literature through to post-war literature, again with a specific emphasis on Modernism, but can help students discover themselves through a given text.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to help a student find their own voice, and to critically engage with whatever has to be mastered. I am of the firm conviction that often students "don't know that they know" and my teaching method is what some call the Socratic method, i.e. by asking questions I help the student arrive at the answers or insights by themselves. I am opposed to parrot-fashion learning and like to see students being on a voyage of discovery in whatever they are learning, be it history, literature or a foreign language.
