I am a native speaker and have a BA and a MA degree. Most importantly for language learners, I am a qualified teacher with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in teaching secondary German (with French and Geography).

Tutoring Experience

I taught German in schools for over 20 years, which included working with individual, small and class-size groups of all ages. Having gained first experience in teaching German while working as a British Council Foreign Language Assistant in East Devon, I decided to follow a career in teaching German at secondary and tertiary level.

Tutoring Approach

I teach learners of all abilities and ages, using my experience in teaching secondary (Years 7-11) and tertiary (Years 12 and 13) students, I can prepare learners for GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and IBDP German ab initio, and German B (SL or HL), as well as Goethe Institut A1-C2 exams. I have also taught in primaries and raised our own children bilingually.
