John Brian - Romsey - German

Methodology

My whole aim with teaching is to make the experience as enjoyable and beneficial as possible. I am happy to stick to the constraints of examination preparation, but I find that it is a lot better to explore all and any aspects of language as they come up. Knowing those quirky facts or suddenly recognising what was strange about Christmas giftwrap in a French shop brings language alive, and with that, you'll get so much more out of learning than maybe you thought!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am happy to teach and discuss all aspects of language and communication. I focus on foreign languages (German and French), with a particular interest in understanding these and other languages, but I also teach English at various levels. As well as individual languages, the cognitive processes associated with language processing are of special interest.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My first degree was in Modern Languages from Oxford; my doctorate was in Psychoacoustics and Phonetics from Oxford.

- How much do you charge?

For one-to-one tuition, I charge £20 pre-university and £25 for undergraduate level. For any associated travel, I tend to charge a flat fee. For groups up to 5 or 6, I charge £15 per person.

- Where do you teach?

I usually teach from home in Winchester, but am prepared to travel within a 25-35 mile radius.

- When are you available?

I am currently available Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays during the day. Evenings are possible by prior arrangement.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

14 years and above.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Usually, I prepare a plan of work to enable the student to progress in their chosen path without specifically focusing on examinations. I have experience with the Cambridge ESOL certificate examinations, as well as the UK GCSE and A-Level boards.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

For basic online tutoring, I prepare presentation material for specific points, set and mark associated assignments. Contact is generally via eMail.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have a passion for all aspects of language; I like to take what seems difficult and make it comprehensible and enjoyable. I am motivated by passing on the interest and enabling all to enjoy and explore languages with me and after.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have worked in the IT industry for many years, including many aspects of speech technology (recognition, synthesis and language understanding) and user-interface design and implementation. I have taught on a one-to-one basis and to small groups French, German and Swedish; I have also done one-off talks and seminars on the brain and language. I have a wide range of experience teaching linguistics and phonetics at undergraduate level.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a 2006 CRB, and there are a number of more recent checks in process.
