« 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. I can also offer tuition via Skype or WhatsApp, although I think tutoring languages is primarily best done face-to-face, if at all possible (but I understand that there may be circumstances where this isn't). 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.

Experience

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.

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.

Isabella embraced the challenge of tutoring my son for German and French GCSEs brilliantly...Isabella gave him lots of confidence as well as excellent exam technique and tuition.

Due to the outstanding coaching James received from Isabella, he achieved a grade A in his year 10 GCSE oral module. Before starting the coaching his predicted grade was a C. Isabella was totally committed and always gave 100% to each lesson...

It was so worth having lessons with Miss Nicholls. From week to week my daughter's confidence grew. In her last school report the German teacher wrote "Isabel's spoken German is very accurate and she is able to manipulate the language well as she speaks." I credit this to Miss Nicholls' lessons.

Jessica

The lessons really built my confidence and Isabella made sure I had a firm understanding of the language and was always very patient with me. The lessons enabled me to get my A* in German and I am extremely grateful for her time, effort and commitment.

Helen

I would describe my son as hard-working and successful in other areas of study, but he had a 'block' with French, and no confidence whatsoever in his ability. Miss Nicholls gave him a set of tools and techniques to overcome this, worked on core skills and lots of oral practice, so that by the time of the exam he had the basics firmly in place. This gave him the confidence to face the exam and he went on to do really well, much better than we dared hope!

J
Joyce

Jade found Isabella to be very approachable, encouraging and always to have a patient attitude. She really liked Isabella as a person and enjoyed her manner of teaching. Isabella went above and beyond what was recognised of her in preparation for Jade's GCSE exams.
