Shipley Tutor

I gained a BA(Hons) degree with a final grade of 2:i in French and German (including a first for my dissertation, which I wrote in German) in the year 2003, having spent a semester in both Germany (Potsdam University) and France (University of Pau). I am fluent in both spoken and written aspects of both languages.

I used to use both languages in my day-to-day work.

Unfortunately, due to rising fuel costs, I regret that I will have to charge for travel; 5 pounds for students, who live up to 10 miles away and 10 pounds for those who are over 10 miles from my home.

Tutoring Experience

I have students in both languages.

One of my early, tutees, in the academic year 2007-08, I helped to improve from a predicted D / E to a B final grade.

Tutoring Approach

I start by assessing the student's ability and level of competence in the language and tailoring the sessions to their needs.

I like to see what the syllabus is the student is working to and plan the lessons around that.

I encourage the students to pronounce words in the target language correctly by the use of repetition.
