Personal Description:

Hello!

I am a recent graduate of Durham and Sussex universities with five years' tutoring experience in German and French. I am a native German speaker who was raised bilingual in the United Kingdom. I have both worked and studied in Europe, notably at the Sorbonne and the University of Heidelberg. I am a patient and dedicated teacher who pushes his students to achieve their full potential while maintaining a relaxed and friendly learning environment. I encourage my students to consider broader issues in language and culture –– to learn how to think critically, as well as to train for exams.

I have a strong academic record to graduate level. I received a First from Durham University in English and a Distinction from Sussex University for an MA in Literature and Philosophy. During my studies I co-wrote an article on Shakespeare and Marx with one of my tutors which has now been published. I like to spend my free time reading European literature and writing fiction.

Teaching Experience:

I have been tutoring primarily German and French, but also History and English Literature, for five years. I have particular experience at GCSE and A-level, but I have also taught adult beginners and university students. While I was a student at Durham I taught through the local student community outreach group which offered free tuition to local children. I am grateful to have received positive feedback across the board from my students.

Teaching Approach:

My lessons are structured and involve a variety of exercises. I prepare passages for reading comprehension as well as grammar sheets and vocabulary lists. I use exam board textbooks and past papers to prepare students for class tests and final examinations. I try to engage my students in active conversation as much as possible in order to practice pronunciation and aid phrase retention. Guided translation is another important element of my lessons, as it is one of the best ways for a student to improve rapidly in all aspects of grammar.

I know pronunciation is not the easiest aspect of the German language, and since I have a native accent thanks to my upbringing in German, I am able to offer specific coaching in pronunciation.
