Personal Description:

I am a friendly, experienced and qualified teacher. I am a native German, and have lived and taught in the UK for over 18 years.

I am married with three children who are now grown up and have flown the nest.

Since 2011 I have been working as a private tutor, helping pupils to improve their grades at GCSE and A-level, teaching the whole syllabus to students who study at home, and teaching in the financial and engineering sectors where employees need Geman language skills for their work.

Teaching Experience:

I have over 10 years teaching experience as an employed teacher. I have taught at secondary schools, in Further Education colleges and at home. I am particularly proud to say that all of my students have passed their GCSE and A-level exams with excellent results. One of the schools I worked at was rated "excellent" by Estyn. I also have experience of conducting A- level oral exams for different Examination boards.

I have also taught Adult Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced German classes, German for Business, Travel and conversation classes in a relaxed and friendly environment, where students can gain confidence and trust in their language learning abilities without feeling pressured.

Teaching Approach:

I adjust my tutoring to the needs of the individual pupil. If it is paramount to follow a certain GCSE or A-level syllabus (WJEC, AQA, Excel and others), then I am happy and prepared to do so. My experience in schools has given me the knowledge of the standards required at exams. I also have experience of harnessing individual learning styles and I love to make lessons fun with a variety of activities. Many pupils ask me to help them with essay writing, preparation for oral, listening and reading exams, or with grammar. Some pupils study a complete course with me. You can choose however many lessons you would like, and which particular topics or aspects of your course you would like to focus on.

I am enthusiastic about many areas of German history and contemporary subjects: film, music, theatre, cooking, politics, the DDR and life during the cold war and other interesting aspects. Whenever possible, I weave these topics into my lessons and classes, so that language learning is based on a wider understanding of the German speaking countries, their peoples and cultures.
