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. 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 the Individual Research Project at A-level, literature and film studies, e.g. "Good bye, Lenin! or "Der Vorleser", essay writing, preparation for the oral presentation and Speaking card practice snd listening and reading skills, 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.
