I am bilingual in German and English and live in Fife with my husband and my two young children. I love everything about teaching and enjoy coaching learners to achieve their full potential.
I love reading and studying and in my spare time, I am learning more languages!

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified and GTC registered teacher for German and English for all levels at secondary school. I can teach English as a foreign language too! I have taught in Scottish schools since 2003 and have tutored many youngsters to successful Higher and National qualifications in English, German, French and Spanish.
I am the head of a languages department in Fife and simply enjoy the one-on-one contact that I have with students as a tutor.
I have taught at university and further education (college) level and have developed individualised courses for different levels and purposes - be it adult learners, primary school children or pupils looking to take National Qualifications all the way from National 4 to Advanced Higher.

Tutoring Approach

I use a variety of teaching methods to make sure that I take different needs and learning skills into account. I have a wide selection of revision materials for specific exams and make sure that tutorials are enjoyable and relaxed while at the same time making the best of the hour we spend together to help you be successful - at the workplace, at university, at a college or at school.
