Personal Description:

I am an experienced teacher and freelance translator who has lived and worked in the UK, Austria and Italy.
I have taught children and adults (age 3 to 86) individually, in groups and classrooms for over 40 years.My mother is Austrian and my father was British and I have two grown-up children who live and work in London.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught children and adults (age 3 to 86) individually, in groups and classrooms for over 40 years. The subjects have ranged from English as a Second Language to Primary Maths and English, A level German and Italian conversation.As a language graduate with a postgraduate teaching certificate, from 1973 I led the German Department at The Royal Naval School, Haslemere, Tiffin Girls' School, Kingston on Thames, St. Bernard's Grammar School, Slough. I also taught French in Year 7 and 8. I am qualified to teach English as a Second Language, which I taught for five years to 10 - 19-year-olds at a grammar school in Vienna as well as adult evening classes. In Italy I taught ESL from 1987-1999 from nursery school to university level. In the UK I taught literacy and numeracy in primary schools from 2001-2011.
Since 2008 I have successfully prepared 10-year-olds for Grammar School and Common Entrance exams in Cheltenham ( Pates Grammar and Cheltenham College), Gloucester (The King's School and the Crypt Grammar School ) and Cornwall (Truro Girls' High).Two students were awarded academic scholarships. Recently, I successfully coached two students in English for 13+ entry to Bedford School and Radnor House, Twickenham.
I have recently successfully tutored for 8+ entry to Colet Court, Westminster Under, King's College School and Sussex House. I tutored one student for entry to Eton School and he is on the waiting list for entry at age 13. I have currently (**Telephone Number Removed** successfully tutored a student who has been offered a place at 7+ level at King's College School, St.Paul's, Westminster Under and Latymer School. Another student has been offered a place at Latymer and two students have gained places to years 3 and 6 for September 2017 at Wetherby School.

Tutoring Approach:

I adapt my teaching to my students' needs. I believe in creating a friendly atmosphere and also believe in high standards. Students should challenge themselves and understand their strengths as well as their weaknesses. To this end, I have a large selection of teaching resources from text books and past papers to computer software.
