Friendly postgraduate German & Russian translation student offering online German & Russian language lessons

Methodology

I speak fluent German and advanced Russian, so would be able to help with GCSE & A Level German & Russian language. My mother tongue is English, so I would be happy to continue teaching this as a foreign language too.
I offer conversation-based classes, as I firmly believe conversation is the easiest and most fun way to learn a language.
I would love to help with any homework or assignments, providing advice on grammar & vocabulary.

Experience

I recently completely my BA German and Russian degree at the University of Exeter (I achieved a 2:1 with Distinction in Spoken German). I took German at A Level, and German, French and Latin at school, so I have knowledge of a range of languages.
I've been tutoring English (as a foreign language) online for 18 months & have volunteered as a German language assistant in the past
