Hello! I am a highly experienced teacher of German and French having taught both for 20 years. I have taught up to A Level in German and GCSE French, teaching students of all abilities and age ranges. I have a BA Honours degree in Business Management, German and Italian and a PGCE in German and SEN. I lived in Bavaria and studied at Regensburg University, where I further developed my love of the German language and culture. I believe that anybody can learn a language and have spent many years listening to adults say "I really wish I had worked hard in my language lessons". It has always been my mission to ensure that none of my students repeat that phrase when they are older! I recently qualified as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language on-line and feel that my teaching experience will benefit students of all ages and abilities in the new digital world of teaching. I am a bubbly, enthusiastic teacher who loves to see the 'light bulb' moment - when a student starts to feel confident in a new language. I know the challenges of learning a language, because I have learnt the languages myself - I feel this is an advantage as I know from first hand experience the issues that a new learner encounters and will be able to work alongside you to overcome them.
I have taught for my entire career, as well as being a Headteacher and Senior Leader. I have taught in Grammar Schools, Independent Schools and Academies. I have extensive experience of teaching German at Key Stage 3 to GCSE and A Level and French to GCSE level and have experience of the main exam boards and was a German GCSE Speaking test examiner.
I have completed the CELTA course (Certificate of English Language Teaching for Adults), teaching groups of students on-line from all around the world. I am experienced in teaching students from Elementary to Upper Intermediate level. I am also able to teach Business English to Upper Intermediate level.

Lyndsey is professional, calm and intuitive as a teacher. She tailors her lessons sensitively to the needs of her students, ensuring that they make progress at their own pace. She has worked miracles with my son who started with her as a reluctant linguist but who has built confidence steadily over his time with her. Thank you for your expertise, Lyndsey. I can whole-heartedly endorse her services. Ruth Fenton
