My teaching method is student centred and and I motivate and encourage each student to achieve their personal best. I have outstanding subject knowledge and extensive teaching experience of teaching GCSE and A Level French and German. My lessons are superbly well-structured, researched and planned.
I am a qualified and very experienced teacher of German and French. I have taught in Secondary schools and my students have achieved excellent A level and GCSE results. I have also given private tuition to students for A level and GCSE again with excellent results.
I am able to travel to the home of the student. I would require 24 hours notice of cancellation.

Paula has been an immense help with getting me through revision for my German A level. She has specialized and extensive knowledge of the AQA syllabus and was extremely helpful and encouraging when explaining the more challenging areas of German grammar. Paula’s suggestions for German films, books and art ensured I had a wide range of topics for my IRP. I couldn’t recommend Paula more highly!
Paula is an encouraging and helpful tutor. She has helped me so much with my confidence and knowledge with German and pushed into German culture even more than the A-Level specification requires. She wholeheartenly makes and finds excellent resources and does her research in whatever topic we discuss. She knows the A-Level content so well and has made me a better linguist.
Paula is fantastic! She has been teaching my 10 year-old daughter, who says lessons are so much more fun than school. Paula plans sessions meticulously, taking the time and effort to think of how to incorporate my daughter’s interests. She is obviously very knowledgeable not only in language skills, but in how to encourage deep engagement with learning. The sessions are varied, with interesting activities and she follows up with additional resources. My daughter loves her lessons and I’m delighted to have found such an inspiring teacher. Thanks Paula!
Paula provided very good support and tutoring for my son on his language GCSEs. He gained confidence and skill in his use of vocabulary, in both spoken and written work. She had very good understanding of what exam boards were seeking in their setting of questions. I also know her personally as a colleague, and know that she is a thoughtful and patient teacher who brings out the best in language students.
