I enjoy gardening, walking, photography and travel in my spare time. I also sing regularly in Winchester's premier chamber choir, the Ashton Singers, and sit on a French twinning committee, which links my village with that of La Frénaye in Normandy.
I read Modern Languages (major German and minor French) at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, then completed a postgraduate diploma in European Business Management. I am very enthusiastic about Germany and France - their language, culture and people. I spent an academic year at the University of Tübingen during my degree, two months on placement in Nancy (Lorraine), and then three months on a work placement in Hannover during my postgraduate diploma. I also took the TESOL certificate (Trinity College London) and am a qualified TEFL teacher.
I like to work with the learner using a clear and structured, easy to follow approach, tailored to their requirements. I devote time to assessing the strengths, weaknesses and motivation of the student - how I can best build up their skills and confidence.
I gave English tuition to students while at university in Germany. I have been teaching on a regular basis since 2009, when I assisted the German teacher at Croydon College with groups of A level German students.
As a qualified TEFL teacher, I also attained the PTTLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) qualification. I have taught English as a foreign language to young people in a London language school, and also to individuals. I am based in Winchester and have been tutoring regularly there since 2011.
I currently offer German at KS3, GCSE A level & adults learners, French to KS3 and GCSE level & adult learners, and English as a foreign language to international students at elementary, intermediate, advanced and proficient levels.
