Personal Description:

Hello, I'm Rachel. I have been teaching German since 2002 but languages have been part of my life since my first German lesson at school - I was hooked from day one! . I picked Russian up at A level and it was the obvious choice for me to continue both at University. I love traveling, exploring new cultures, sport (swimming, cycling, walking, running, tennis) and spending time with my family.

Tutoring Experience:

After getting a PGCE in Modern Languages, (11-18 year old's) I have mainly been teaching A level German to Sixth Form students, though before that I worked for 3 years teaching German and French to GCSE. Since 2006 I have also been teaching GCSE Russian to beginners, getting them to GCSE standard in one year. I love teaching languages; it can be so rewarding seeing people become enthused and excited when they can see the progress they are making. It's a very enjoyable job and one that I feel privileged to be able to do.

Tutoring Approach:

In the classroom I always try to make my lessons interactive, engaging, relevant and fun. Speaking the language can be sometimes quite daunting but with encouragement and practice it can also be the most exciting part and I do love getting students talking! I am also a bit of a grammar geek and enjoy getting stuck into this aspect of a language - and it's surprising how much fun grammar learning can actually be… I have an arsenal of grammar games up my sleeve! I understand how complicated German can be and I am very sympathetic when it comes to learners' needs.
