I've always loved languages, travelling and meeting new people. I started learning languages at school, continued at university and qualified as a teacher with a PGCE in 1998. I have worked & studied at university in Germany & Italy, travelled extensively in France & Spain and backpacked around South America.
I offer KS3, GCSE and A-level lessons as well as languages for business and general adult courses. I also offer daytime tuition to homeschool students.
Becoming a teacher 17 years ago was a natural step. I have since gained considerable experience teaching languages in primary & secondary schools in the UK & overseas and preparing students for GCSE, A-level and International Baccalaureate.
I have also taught adult courses for those who wish to 'just get by' to corporate clients requiring business language skills.
Every student is unique, so I ensure lessons are created to suit individual goals and interests. I enjoy teaching in small groups as well as 1 to 1. In this way I see students increase in confidence and make fast progress. I mix up the lessons with a variety of tasks to cover listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
