Multilingual student living in Newcastle, ready to teach German - the fun way!

Methodology

I often cater my classes to the specific needs or interests of the pupil, but most often I will combine a grammar topic with a theme, such as family, politics or future plans, with lots of creativity and speaking. The most important part is that you don't even realise that you are learning.

Experience

I have just finished my second year at the University of Exeter studying French, German and Russian. I have been tutoring since I started GCSEs, and have a passion for spreading my love of language, grammar and culture! My favourite part of teaching is surprising the student by how much they enjoy grammar - at least once!

I am a second-year student from Newcastle studying French, German and Beginners’ Russian. I have a lot of experience working in teams under high pressure, and have been in many leadership roles. I thoroughly enjoy hard work and working to high targets.

Skills
• Excellent communication skills, including multiple languages
• Experienced in working with the general public and handling money • Excellent time management skills
• Proven team leadership abilities
• I am enthusiastic, and above all else, willing to work hard

Education
2018 – PRESENT
Bachelor Degree / University of Exeter
Alongside studying my three languages, my first year of university included modules on French Philosophy and French Visual History, where I specialised in the royal image of the Palais de Versailles. My second year has involved optional modules in Russian History and Art of the French Enlightenment. My final grade for first year was 68.13%.

Secondary School / Dame Allan’s Schools
At A2 Level, I achieved A*AA in French, German and History, and an A in AS Maths, and at GCSE, I achieved 9 A*s and 1 A**. I was Deputy Head Boy, passed Grade 8 LAMDA in Solo Acting with Distinction, and played Flute and Piano to Grade 6 & 7 standard. In Year 11 and 13 I completed Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh.

Experience of Work
1 MARCH – PRESENT
Brand Ambassador/ Hollister
As brand ambassador, my tasks include serving customers at the till and throughout the store, with a particular interest in customer service and approachability. This experience has really challenged the way that I view retail and the fashion industry, especially in regards to the way it is presented.

SEPTEMBER – NOVEMBER 2019
Entertainment Host/ The Ram
My position involved writing quizzes, hosting three event nights a week and handling money without a till. I found the work a great exercise for my organisational skills and my confidence in front of crowds.

FEBRUARY 2019 – SEPTEMBER 2019
Cloakroom attendant / Unit 1
In my local nightclub I was trained in handling money, operating a till and effectively working with members of the public.

SUMMERS OF 2018 & 2019
Playworker / Gosforth Park Out of School Club
I have spent the past two summers working with primary school children in a day-care and out-of-school care setting. I have participated in preparing food, playing with and looking after the children on a regular basis, on site and on daytrips.

FEBRUARY 2017
Barista / Café Solo, Montpellier (Work experience)
I spent a week in Montpellier as a barista, serving the public and using my French to communicate with them. I received basic training for the role, such as serving food and drinks, and handling money.

Voluntary Work
JUNE 2019 – PRESENT
Year 2 German and Russian / SSLC Representative
My responsibility in this role is the communication between the students and staff of German and Russian, and reporting my feedback to a regular meeting between heads of department and other subject reps.

JUNE 2019 – PRESENT
President, General Secretary / German Theatre Society, Fashion Society
While in second year at university my classmate and I founded the German Theatre Society, where we explore German culture and literature through workshops on theatre and performance; moreover, my role in the Fashion Society involves communicating with local businesses and other societies regarding campaigns, photoshoots and campaigns. I have also participated in fashion modelling.

SEPTEMBER 2019
Welcome Team
I volunteered during Freshers’ Week to introduce and welcome incoming students to the university.

OCTOBER 2015 – JULY 2017
World Challenge / Costa Rica and Nicaragua
I fundraised £4000 to fund a month trekking and volunteering in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. To raise this money, I made and sold homemade jam and washed cars; therefore, I finished my fundraising 6 months early with a £300 surplus. While on the expedition I was the team accountant, giving me responsibility for budgeting each individual expense such as meals, travel tickets and accommodation.

Young Leader /(Local) Scout Group
I volunteered as a Young Leader in my local Scout Group for four years, planning and carrying out games and exercises appropriate to a weekly programme. My work earned me the Young Leader Belt with ILM qualifications.

Qualifications
2020
The Exeter Leaders Award/ University of Exeter
Similar to the Exeter Award, this aware required attending multiple workshops and an interview process, however was more focussed on leadership and management. I found this experience particularly helpful in the teaching of different leadership skills, psychometric testing and the emphasis of sustainability in business.

2020
The Exeter Award/ University of Exeter
In my second year of university, I attended multiple workshops on employability and the world of work. Some of the taught skills included personal resilience and creating a successful job application, followed by an interview experience.

2018
Young Leader Belt/ Scout Association & ILM
As a Young Leader in my local Scout Group, I worked towards the highest qualification of my section and also earned ILM accreditation for my work.

I know Mark from university, as we are in the same German class. Mark is extremely linguistically talented and diligent, and gets along with everyone. He is a great leader and as a student representative of the MFL department, he is always very proactive and quick to use initiative to tackle any concerns. It is clear that he cares deeply about the well-being and satisfaction of all students, and is keen to ensure that the course material allows us to fulfil our potential.
When a classmate needs help with their work, he is consistently the first to explain the relevant grammar/vocab points in a manner that is patient, thorough and dedicated. You will certainly not regret having Mark as your tutor. I cannot recommend him enough.
