Personal Description:

Hello, hallo, bonjour! I am originally from Germany, where I obtained a university degree in modern foreign languages, as well as a teaching qualification for secondary school pupils. Apart from working as a language tutor, I am also a qualified translator and practising conference interpreter for German, French and English.

Teaching Experience:

In England I have tutored children, young people and adults since 1995, either on behalf of Community Education (Adult German), commercial providers like "Fun Français" (extra-curricular French in primary schools) or as a private arrangement. For the past few years I have delivered residential programmes for language enrichment and courses for German at GCSE and A-Level. Recently I have also prepared a number of college and university students for their language exams, taught Business German and French and helped adults with their first steps in both languages.

Teaching Approach:

I care about clarity, accuracy and enjoyment. Using a range of techniques I cater for different needs and learning styles. Increasing learner confidence and fluency is very important to me, but I can equally deliver secure foundations in grammar and linguistic insight at expert level. Whatever the content and approach, the environment is always relaxed and friendly. Be prepared to work in new ways and with plenty of cultural input towards achieving your goals.
