Before I start teaching you, I do a needs analysis to see where you are in terms of language skills and then I prepare tailor-made lessons for you. Even if you are following a particular book at school, I will of course give you extra handouts and practice too. My aim is to boost your confidence and demonstrate that you have the ability to speak the language when you are abroad and get high marks in whatever exams you intend to take.
I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education for teaching French, German and EFL and I have been a teacher since 1983. For the past three years I have been tutoring students on a one-to-one basis and I find that so rewarding as I am able to tailor all my classes to the needs of that particular student and that helps the students to achieve rapid progress in their chosen language. I take an all-round approach to teaching French and German, in other words I focus on all four skills of speaking, reading, writing and listening as well as grammar which is very important if you want to get a good grade at GCSE.
I am happy to travel up to 3 miles to teach you in your own home. However, if you live outside Plymouth I may charge a small additional amount for travel expenses.
We have been very impressed with Wendy. She was very welcoming at our first lesson and quickly adapted it to what we wanted to cover. The following lessons (and homework!) have concentrated on our required topics and have been extremely well prepared. With Wendy`s expertise and encouragement, we are both moving forward in written and conversational German. We can highly recommend her.
I am happy to say that my 10 years old daughter loves Wendy’s German lessons.
Wendy prepares her lessons in advance carefully to match my daughter’s abilities and keeps me in the loop by providing us with the material they went though.
Professional, in one word.
