Personal Description:

I am an Oxford Graduate, an experienced teacher, lecturer and tutor, and an enthusiastic linguist. Currently teaching KS3-A level at an independent secondary school in Bournemouth. I am experienced in delivering fully tailored courses in German, Spanish and Polish.
I have an excellent track record of helping students at all levels- all former tutees have achieved A or A* in their exams, with several choosing to study languages at university.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced languages teacher, lecturer and tutor. Prior to moving to Dorset, I used to teach Spanish in German in a secondary school in London, where I was responsible for planning and delivering language lessons to 15 KS3 and KS4 classes, including two groups of students preparing to take their GCSE exams.
I currently work as Languages Teacher (German and Spanish), teaching KS3, GCSE and A Level. I have experience preparing schemes and programmes of work to allow my students to achieve their goals within a specific time frame- this includes both preparation for exams, and general leisure courses. I have been graded outstanding in my teaching observations and truly enjoy introducing languages to students!

Teaching Approach:

I love languages, and I want to enthuse my students as much as possible. Languages are meant to be enjoyable, they are supposed to be spoken, lived and appreciated. I do not believe that learning languages should consist of memorising long lists of vocabulary or verb tables, and I take great pride in developing innovative and creative resources and approaches to learning- my lessons are never boring!

The first step when tutoring is always to assess the tutee's needs and the desired outcomes. Whether you need help to prepare for your GCSEs or A-levels, need help with a specific piece of coursework or are learning languages for business or travel purposes, I will design bespoke lessons for you that will ensure that you achieve just what you need. I believe that students learn in a variety of different ways, and I will tailor my lessons so that I get the best out of you, taking into account how you like to learn.

I also like to incorporate elements of culture into my lessons to make the languages come alive. My students always enjoy my lessons and make excellent progress which is regularly assessed through a variety of means so that you always know where you are!
