Postgraduate from Glasgow offering English, French and German classes - drop me a text now!

Methodology

I am born German, but have lived in the UK on and off for a long time. I am 24 years old and have substantial experience in the field as a teacher. I offer lessons to everybody of all ages and classes, ranging from illiterate people to A1 and soon-to-be mothertongues. Because of my work experience in the field I can offer you a broad range of exercises and learning styles. In the first lessons, I will try and outline a learning journal which will be executed afterwards during the teaching lessons. That helps to create transparency and helps to shed light on possible problem areas.

Experience

I studied Translation and Interpreting in German, English and French in Germany and I am currently living in Glasgow, doing my postgraduate in International Business Management. I have been self-employed in tutoring to subsist and support myself financially. I have worked an lived in different areas in the UK over the last 5 years - mostly swapping between a residency in the UK and Germany. I like to be socially active and therefore, I committed myself to a Voluntary Social Year a few years back. Furthermore, I helped out in a refugee camp teaching languages and organizing events.

Last-minute cancellations without good cause are not accepted. Then, the lesson will be moved to a later date and has to be paid.

SELF-EMPLOYMENT 2014 - present
Due to my financial situation during my undergraduate, I set up my own business in Germany. This enabled me to generate enough income in order to subsist and support myself during the bachelor degree. I provided services in tutoring, teaching and homework assistance in the areas of Translation, Interpreting and Linguistics amongst others. I also worked with illiterate people; with people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. From 2016 onwards, I teamed up with a student-tutoring institute and in 2017 I went to work with companies, such as Bosch. I learned to handle large workloads in a fast-paced environment and worked hard to achieve my self-set goals. Currently, I am transforming the company into an online international business in order to meet demand.

My responsibilities included tutoring, homework assistance and lessons for individual students and groups. I also innovated and implemented documentation systems for registration of data and helped out organizing events for leisure time.






Student-staff representative 2016-2017
Being elected student-staff representative in my final year of my undergraduate, I had the pleasure of working with a large, diverse team consisting of 11 class reps and another representative. I also worked closely with my principals and the administration staff to insure smooth procedures in daily university life. My responsibilities were the enablement of communication between students and professors and the organisation of anually-held meetings such as the Christmas Party and the Graduation Ceremony, guest lectures and other get-togethers.
