I have just graduated with a first-class degree in Modern Languages (Spanish and German) at the University of Durham and I am about to begin my teacher training PGCE in Secondary Spanish and German (teaching KS3-A Level). I have studied Spanish for 8 years and my level is currently C2 (near-native). I have also lived in Seville and Madrid and thus have a good knowledge of local dialects. I have tutored both GCSE and A Level in Spanish both online, at university, and in sixth form.
I embarked on my study of German at University as an ab initio language (from beginner). However, due to the intense nature of this course, I am now C1 level in German too, having spent a year living in Germany and working as a foreign language assistant at a German Gymnasium (grammar school). I have experience tutoring up to A Level in German.
I have A Levels in Spanish, Sociology and History and I hold a keen interest in each subject area. I have also achieved straight A* grades in my GCSE exams. I also have taught EFL to Chinese students.
I am interested in languages and am currently training to become a full-time secondary languages teacher. I can help you with listening, reading, speaking and writing to achieve your desired grade- be it adult beginner or up to degree level.
I have taught at several levels and am currently starting my PGCE to teach German and Spanish from year 7-13 (A Level). I have taught German to refugee students in Germany on a 7 month placement and also tutored degree level German whilst at University. I have a lot of experience teaching Spanish, having tutored from primary to degree level and adult learner.
When teaching, I favour practise over anything else. I tailor each lesson to the individual student's needs and redo anything that the student seems to struggle with. When tutoring languages, I focus on oral skills primarily and avoid the use of English as far as possible- this is a challenging approach to languages but one which worked at my university (Durham) and thus is one I have personally adapted when teaching languages students; language immersion is my main aim!
