Martina - Norbiton - ESOL (English)

Methodology

I am patient and gentle but have high expectations and will stretch you to reach your potential. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm and believe that everyone can learn a language to a very high standard.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I excel at preparing students for GCSE, AS and A level exams in German (especially AQA and Edexcel) and I teach from complete beginner all the way up to University level. I also teach Spanish up to GCSE and French up to year 9. I have years of experience helping students learn English as a foreign language as well as preparing younger students for the 11+ entry exam.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My first degree was earned in Germany where I studied Business together with English, French and Spanish. I later added a BA Hons degree in International Business as well as a Diploma in Translations E/G. Furthermore I achieved a post grad PGCE at Kingston University teaching German, French and Spanish.

- Where do you teach?

I mainly teach from my home in Surbiton, Surrey but will travel to students in a 5 mile radius depending on available time slots.

- When are you available?

Currently some slots are available during the week during normal school hours, as well as after-school and evening times (at my home). Some slots on Saturday.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Students at KS2 for 11+ entry exam; German, Spanish and French and KS3, German and Spanish at KS4 and German GCSE, AS and A level up to undergraduate level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

mainly:
11+
GCSE German
AS and A level German

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I teach German at all levels via Skype - please ask for details.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught many students between 14 and 60 in Japan and Dubai in English and German as a foreign language. In England I prepared students for GCSE, AS and A level exams in German at a school in Guildford with excellent results. Furthermore I also spent time teaching at state and Grammar schools in the Kingston and Tolworth area. I currently tutor on a one-to-one and small group basis.

I started my life close to Heidelberg in Germany and moved to England some 20 years ago. During the past 15 years I have also lived and worked in places as far as Madrid, Tokyo and Dubai and can draw from a wealth of experiences learning languages as diverse as Latin and Japanese myself as well as teaching European languages to individuals, small groups, large classes in non-selective schools and top sets in Grammar schools in a variety of cultural settings. I can offer high-quality and tailor made lessons. I understand not only how language acquisition works, but also that each student has their own learning style and how to adapt my teaching appropriately. Moreover, I am acutely aware of the importance of languages in the world our children live in and am passionate about the benefit and pleasure which learning a language can bring.

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

I hold a current DBS Certificate.
