I offer lessons to students up to A Level for German, and to GCSE level for Drama/Theatre Studies as well as Geography. I like to hold conversations about topics to test the basic understanding of themes before working on written work. I believe that it is important to prove you have a true understanding of a topic before you can write about it clearly and precisely in preparation for exams.
I am a student in my final year of university studying German, Italian, and Translation Studies. I have spent time abroad living and working in Germany and Italy whilst studying these languages working in both a school and a translation office. I also studied Geography and French to A Level and Theatre Studies/Drama to AS Level and Grade 8.
