« Georgina's school were considering entering her for Foundation Level GCSE French. After private tuition with Isabella, this was no longer necessary. Georgina was entered for Higher Level and obtained an 'A' grade. Quite simply, this would not have been possible without Isabella. She is a fantastic teacher and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her. »

German Tutor and Translator for beginners up to A Level and undergraduate level (children and adults) - Knaphill, Woking, Guildford and the surrounding area

Methodology

I am a very experienced teacher and know the areas people have problems with when learning a language. I teach children and adults - the latter has included several courses for employees at local companies to help them get by in everyday situations in a German speaking country - and my tutoring can be as formal or as informal as you require. The aim is to help you with your language learning, so I will adapt my coaching to your needs. If, for example, examination technique is a problem, then I can teach you how to master it, so that you can go into the exam feeling confident and well-prepared. My aim is to always use the strengths of each individual pupil to help them with their understanding and performance. I have plenty of material which I can use in coaching sessions, I am patient and I always try to be good-humoured!

I can tutor online via email. I can correct essays, answer questions, give advice etc. This is useful, particularly when students need some urgent help. However, I think tutoring languages is primarily best done face-to-face. Please see the testimonials on my profile to see what some of my students have said.

My time is quite flexible and I would seek to arrange lessons when mutually convenient, whether that be during the day, in the evening, at weekends or during school holidays, which offer a good opportunity for some intensive revision, if that is what you are looking for.

Background

I have a 1st Class Honours Degree in Linguistic and International Studies (German) from Surrey University and a PGCE in German and French from Exeter University and have been teaching since 1988 and tutoring since 2008. I have taught in both state and private schools and have experience of teaching primary and secondary pupils, as well as adults. I teach German up to undergraduate level and you can read some of the testimonials I've received from students on my profile (more are available on request). Please also ask if you wish to see testimonials from my former school employment.

I have an up-to-date DBS (formerly CRB) Certificate and belong to the teaching union NASUWT.
