I graduated in BA German (2:1) in 1989 and after working in international business for several years I retrained to become a German teacher at Cambridge University. I have over 20 years experience teaching German both privately and in state schools, (most recently at a highly selective girls' grammar school ). My students have achieved outstanding results with an impressive Value Added. Since becoming self-employed, I have been an Associate Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University and an Examiner for the New GCSE German oral (first exam 2018). I have tutored for this new exam helping students to achieve the highest possible Grade 9.
09.94 - 03.98 St. Martin's School Brentwood. Teacher of German and French.
03.98 - 07.01 Supply Teaching in Chelmsford and Private Tuition (GCSE, A Level and Business German).
08.01 - 08.16 Chelmsford County High School for Girls Teacher of German. Outstanding results at GCSE, A Level and IB.
09.16 - present Personal German Tutor and Associate German Lecturer at ARU; GCSE German oral Examiner.
I adopt a personalised approach according to my students needs. I can build students' confidence with grammar and written German as well as preparing them for the GCSE, A Level or IB examinations. I am very competent at preparing students for the oral examination and will focus on whatever aspect of German my student wants.
For casual learners I prepare a tailor-made course.
