Personal Description:

I am a doctoral student hoping to apply my four years’ experience as an EFL teacher to tutoring to my areas
of study : German, French and literary studies. I have taught both individuals and classes of all abilities and
ages from fourteen up, and, due to a strong personal interest in language, took particularly to grammar
teaching, designing many lessons from scratch. I have a strong grasp of the German language and thorough
background knowledge of 19th and 20th-century German, especially German-Jewish literature and history.

Tutoring Experience:

4 years English as a Foreign Language: teaching monolingual classes of adults and individual students in Germany and the Czech Republic, and mixed-language classes in the UK including in summer schools (ages 14-19 and 15-17).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach in one-on-one classes has tended to be reactive, encouraging students to assess their own needs, weaknesses and areas of confidence, and finding or if necessary creating materials and exercises to address them. With language teaching I stress use of the target language to communicate, and especially prioritise developing a feel for an area of grammar or communication through repetition and practical application, in order to improve fluency.
