Qualified, flexible, experienced Languages teacher, near York, making language learning fun and interesting - to teach German from Beginners to GCSE.


I am happy to teach German from beginners to GCSE Level. I have taught in three Secondary schools and in over 15 Primary schools, as well as tutoring at KS2, 3, 4 and 5 - covering KS3, GCSE and A Level, as well as tutoring adults. I tailor my lessons to the individual needs and situation of each client. Lessons will typically cover some or all of the four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing - but will also involve the understanding of grammar as this provides the 'hooks' on which to hang words. I will look at phonics to aid pronunciation and various techniques to aid memorisation. I like to teach using song, as music helps to commit learning to the long term memory, as well as being fun!
I look forward to hearing from you.


I am a qualified, fun, friendly, flexible and experienced Languages teacher of German, French and Spanish. I have taught German from beginners level to GCSE in schools and successfully tutored German from KS2 through to A Level. My student have responded well, been positive and gained good results, many gaining an A*. I have also taught German to adults for holiday and leisure reasons, or just for fun! I am enthusiastic and have a passion for my subject. I am CRB Checked and subscribe to the online CRB service, which is updated annually.
