First-class honours languages graduate offering German language support, in and around Bath area

Methodology

My favourite thing about language learning is its real-world application, and this is an aspect which I keep at the forefront of my teaching. Ultimately, you are learning how to communicate with people in a real-world setting, which is exciting and should be fun! A tailored, student-centred approach ensures that lessons can be personalised to the student's abilities and interests, helping to facilitate maximum engagement and progress.

Background

I am a recent graduate from the University of Southampton, with a first-class honours degree in German and Spanish. I was treasurer of the German Society alongside my studies, and was the recipient of the final year 'German Writing Award'. I regularly visited Germany throughout my degree, and most recently spent three months working in Berlin as an intern translator and proofreader. I have experience teaching English as a foreign language to both adult and younger learners, and am excited to adapt my lessons to German teaching.
