« Barney is a well organised, reliable and very understanding tutor. Over a 3 month period he was instrumental in my learning of the German language and I often recommend him to close friends and family. I had no previous knowledge of the German language outside of the Duolingo and Memrise apps before my lessons but I can now speak confidently at a strong intermediate level. The content of Barney's lessons were very flexible and I was able to shape the course to fit my specific requirements (I was studying to take the Austrian Anwärter ski instructor exams). Lessons were well planned and set at the right level for my abilities. I can't recommend him enough! »

Graduate with experience in translation giving lessons in German and Russian in Bristol

Methodology

There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing my knowledge and passion for language and this forms the foundation of my tutoring style. Whatever you need to work on, I am happy to form a learning plan around this. I believe it is important to tackle complex grammar head on, without avoiding tricky terminology, especially when it comes to languages like German and Russian. Knowing the grammar of a language and general grammatical principles forms the basis of successful language study, from there it's all about practice!

Background

I have a first-class degree from the University of Bristol in German and Russian and have over a year's experience in the translation industry. As part of my degree I spent six months working in journalism in Berlin and 6 months on an intensive Russian language course at a university in Krasnodar, southern Russia. I am happy to cater to all levels and ages.
