Originally from London, I have lived in France and Germany and speak both languages to near native level. I love languages, and hope I can pass that passion onto you! I love to travel, to meet new new people, and to continue improving my language skills.
I have been teaching French and German to A level for eighteen years now and have taught in the UK and NZ. I also offer Spanish up to KS3. My results speak for themselves: every year my classes results have been in the top 20 of state schools in the UK. This year my A2 class gained 100% A-C (20 pupils), and my A/S class 97% A-C (32 pupils). I am familiar with all exam boards and have experience of conducting oral exams, marking for exam boards (giving great insight into how to gain those marks!) and also setting questions for the A Level literature papers. I have a wealth of resources from beginner through to KS3, GCSE and A Level.
I believe that enthusiasm encourages enthusiasm, and I hope my enthusiastic approach to languages will get you enjoying my subject! I am patient and relaxed, and try to find different approaches to suit individual needs. I have a variety of resources and strategies to make learning fun.
