Online Tuition for French and German

I've been teaching French and German for over 20 years but started my career working for the BBC World Service going on to work in Public Relations, travelling all over Europe. In 1993, I gained my PGCE and have been teaching and tutoring (French, German, ESOL, EFL) in the primary,secondary and tertiary sectors. Over the years I have enjoyed roles such as Head of Department, Assistant Head of Sixth Form and Moderator for one of the examining Boards but now I prefer to simply teach and tutor. I love teaching languages and enjoy sharing this knowledge with others.

Tutoring Approach

My passion for teaching and desire to instill a feeling of achievement and success in students is evidenced in my enthusiastic, encouraging and creative approach to teaching. I have high expectations of all students and my priority is to create a learning environment whereby my students feel completely at ease in lessons, giving them confidence and helping them achieve their goals and potential.
