Personal Description:

I am a retired teacher of French and German with 35 years of teaching experience in London, Suffolk and Norfolk. I was head of a successful 6th form in the 5 years prior to retirement. I am very familiar with the GCSE and A level requirements of the various exam boards and I have been a GCSE German oral senior examiner. I very much enjoy the company of young people and have two sons of my own who keep me well grounded! I have a property in France that I visit regularly, friends in France and Germany and I also maintain my fluency and up-to-date knowledge of both languages by reading a lot. As well as helping school students with their exams I have also taught many adults in both languages and I tailor my lesson preparation carefully to the needs of individual learners.

Teaching Experience:

As well as the above I am currently tutoring students in French (Beginners and GCSE level, but can also give help with grammar at A level) and in German (beginners through to A level)

Teaching Approach:

I believe the key to successful langauge learning is the building block approach - it is crucial to understand one thing before moving on. Motivation comes through success. Lots of practice, both oral and grammatical is crucial.
