Personal Description:

I am currently teaching French at UEA as an associate lecturer at beginner, intermediate and undergraduate level and previously taught French and German for over twenty years from Year 7 to A Level. My results speak for themselves: every year my classes' results have been in the top 10 of all schools in the UK. Last year my A2 class achieved 100% A-C (20 pupils), and my two A/S classes 97% A-C (32 pupils). This year a private student of mine who had been predicted a D gained an A at German A Level. I am familiar with all exam boards and have been a GCSE oral examiner for Spanish for ten years as well as an expert marker for the French A Level literature paper for ten years. I have written A Level question papers for Zigzag Education as well as having several study guides in French and German published, ranging from KSE to A Level. I have a wealth of resources and ideas from beginner through to KS3, GCSE and A Level. I have been tutoring for around ten years now, and have boosted all my students grades considerably. I also tutor adults who are learning for fun, and have taken them from beginner level to proficient speakers of French or German. I also work as a freelance translator which keeps my language knowledge up-to-date.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for over twenty years and every year my classes' results have been in the top 20 of state schools in the UK. Last year my A2 class achieved 100% A-C (20 pupils), and my A/S class 97% A-C (32 pupils). I am familiar with all exam boards and have experience of conducting oral exams, marking GCSE oral exams for exam boards (giving great insight into how to gain those marks!) and examining at French A Level. I have a wealth of resources from beginner through to KS3, GCSE and A Level, and have written study guides for GCSE German and A Level French set texts. This summer, a pupil of mine who had predicted an E at A German Level attained an A grade with my tuition - taught solely by me,not at school.

Teaching Approach:

An experienced French and German teacher, I have a wealth of ideas and materials. Friendly and flexible, I look for ways to make language learning a positive experience so that students gain in confidence and motivation. I have lived in France and Germany and speak both languages to near native level. I love languages, and hope I can pass that passion onto you! I believe that each learner has different needs and I enjoy finding the key to unlock real understanding. I tailor my planning, activities and materials to the student's individual needs and this student-centred approach allows pupils' confidence and motivation to flourish.
