I am currently a student studying for a degree in French and German at The University of Cambridge. Alongside languages, my hobbies include running and music; I sing in a Chapel Choir in Cambridge and regularly play the piano. I have just spent 8 months in Berlin where I worked in a translation company, translating marketing texts from German into English.

I live in Cambridge during term time, and in the holidays I am mainly based in Peterborough or London. I am more than happy to offer Skype tutoring, too.

Tutoring Experience

In terms of tutoring, I have taught Beginner's French and German in the past (Years 7-9), assisting a couple of students with their Common Entrance and GCSE exams.

In terms of music tuition, I am capable of tutoring anyone entered for the ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory exam, and hold a DipABRSM in piano as well as Grade 8 in ABRSM Singing and Cello. I can also tutor academic music up until GCSE, and help with the performance side of the course, if desired.

Tutoring Approach

For tuition in French in German, I encourage learners to absorb vocabulary through the use of visual and auditory aids, particularly mind maps, flash cards and mnemonics; I strongly believe that you improve considerably by learning vocabulary little and often, rather than in bigger chunks, and I will test vocabulary regularly to ensure progress. I can also focus on specific grammar points that a student wishes to look over, and can go through exercises to put certain grammar rules into practice.

I am happy to provide assistance with exam technique for someone who needs to pass a specific exam such as Common Entrance or GCSE.

In terms of music theory tuition, I work alongside an exercise book (published by the ABRSM) and will correct the work / explain any mistakes. Since I play the piano, I'm also able to play a student their work so that they can hear how it sounds off the page.
