Personal Description:

I am a linguist because of my first degree in Classics, and my Austrian family connection and the many summers spent in Austria, and the fact that I am using this language, German, all the time; as well as having had advantages in French in that three of my four teachers at school were French natives. Two of my sisters live in France and I am in that country for two stays in many years. I have made special study of pronunciation because I am a classical singer. I have translated from these languages for book publishers.

Tutoring Experience:

Secondary school experience as Latin, and Latin and Greek teacher.
Classroom exper. in Further Ed, secondary, and sixth form teaching.
Secondary level vacation courses in Austria.
Private tutoring since my own student days.

Tutoring Approach:

Somewhat Socratic in that I expect the pupil to make as much use as possible of what he DOES know, and then add to that.
I believe in going from the known to the unknown, and using "word families" etc to progress by adding as if making a snowball.
It is essential to understand the nuts and bolts- to understand the mechanics and dynamics of language ie grammar and syntax(though I accept a lot can be done through going through thousands of models of language structures so that the brain eventually grasps the patterns/the structure without ever naming the parts as verb, noun etc,or the clauses as Main or other etc)
