My teaching method is relaxed and friendly and I can teach any age up to and including degree level. I structure my lessons with an introduction or recap at the start, then new themes or topics. I like the student to learn but also enjooy themselves whilst learning.
I am a student and have both taught classes and tutored foreign students between 3 and 24 years old since 2017. I have taught full classes in several different schools since 2014 and have studied German for 11 years and Dutch for 3 and a half. I have been singing for my whole life and had lessons and perfomed since 2010.
I am a motivated, enthusiastic, and hard-working twenty-two-year-old student of German, Dutch and Philosophy at the University of Sheffield.
