My name is Rita and I love teaching languages and helping others to discover the joys of Germany. My hobbies include having afternoon tea, watching international films, walking, travelling, cooking and reading. I enjoy tutoring as I like to personalise the learning and ensure that the learning is a very positive and rewarding experience.
I have taught German and French for 29 years and have been a Head of Languages for 16 years. I have been consistently judged to be outstanding by various ofsted inspectors and advisors throughout my teaching career. I have organised several school trips to Germany and France and I have lived and taught in Germany for 10 years, so I am very familiar with the cultural aspects of Germany.
I am also a qualified English as a foreign language teacher and have a lot of experience in teaching English to a range of adults and children.
I have tutored several students and I always have a good rapport with my learners, putting them ease and helping to boost or regain their confidence in learning a language. I understand that experiences at school can be quite haunting and negative, but I always aim to help my tutees to gain self confidence and enjoy learning a language.
