Personal Description:

I am a Modern languages graduate and read French and German at university and have spent extensive periods living and working abroad in France, Germany, Austria and Luxembourg. Having qualified as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language I have taught EFL to a wide range of backgrounds, varying from corporate to individual, and most recently taught English in a mainstream secondary school in Luxembourg for two years. I enjoy facilitating learning by making lessons relevant to the individual and varied and engaging in the materials and approaches used. I am a keen runner, getting involved in coaching distance running to youngsters and adults alike, and on top of that enjoy travel, practicing my French and German when I can, brushing up on my DIY skills and getting out on my road bike. The marathon is next on my list of challenges.

Tutoring Experience:

I have most recently finished a period of two years EFL teaching in a mainstream secondary school in Luxembourg. I have had experience of teaching French to 8 -13 year olds, taught English in a French secondary school, tutored German to GCSE level and participated in summer EFL language camps, and taught in private language schools such as Berlitz and Prolingua, all since graduating from Exeter university in 2004 with a Bachelors degree in French and German.

Tutoring Approach:

I firmly believe that a happy student will learn more productively than an unhappy one! It's essential to find out the student's needs. I feel that successful teaching and tutoring relies on a teacher being flexible, taking the time to relate the material being taught so that the student can relate to the lesson and be enthused by engaging and varied material and activities that practice all the disciplines (speaking, listening reading and writing)
