There are many reasons to learn a language,and having this skill can only be in an asset in today's world. Whatever your motivation, I am keen to help and support you on your journey.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach German, French and Spanish to varying levels and can also offer EFL (English as a foreign language).
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a PGCE in secondary teaching in German / French; a BA Joint Honours degree (2:1) in German / French; a Cert TEFL (Grade A) and a DELE in Spanish ('A' Level equivalent).
- How much do you charge?
I generally charge between £20 and £25 per hour for individual tuition, depending on the level and location. I prefer to conduct classes in my own home, as I do not drive, but am happy to travel a short distance if this is necessary or preferred.
I would offer reduced rates for small groups.
- Where do you teach?
I would prefer to give lessons at home, in the area of Gosforth in Newcastle, but am willing to travel short distances if that proves necessary.
As I do not drive, the student's home would have to be within easy access of public transport links, perhaps within a few miles radius from the centre of Newcastle but this could be negotiated.
- When are you available?
This is open to discussion as my work patterns are often subject to change.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am happy to teach any age, from children to adults, and according to the student's needs.
In terms of school qualifications, I can offer tuition in German up to 'A' Level and French and Spanish up to GCSE Level.
For foreign students, I can also offer tuition in English.

I can help prepare students for 'A' level and GCSE in German and for GCSE on French and Spanish.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am a friendly and hard-working individual and would try and offer the best service for my students to achieve their goals, whatever they may be.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught Languages in school for 20 years, mainly in the state sector up to GCSE (French) and 'A'Level (German), as well as Spanish to Key Stage 3. In addition, I have experience of teaching EFL in companies, language schools and privately in Spain. I also did some seasonal work teaching EAP (English for academic purposes) at the University of Sunderland. Consequently, I have worked with young children, teenagers, students, and professionals alike.
