- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach German and French.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I'm a native German speaker with an MA in English, French and Russian from Potsdam University in Germany. Originally I wanted to become a school teacher, which meant that for one year I studied on a teaching course, including psychology, didactics etc. After my studies I worked in publishing and marketing and finished a Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing. My son was born in 2006 and I have since been self-employed as a German & French tutor. I also do translations.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £25 per hour and work from home. Group rate: £25/h plus £5 per additional pupil. Business contracts: £39 per hour incl. travel to your offices.
- Where do you teach?
I only teach at home (Knowle, just off M42 Junction 5). Nearest train stations are Dorridge or Solihull. Nearest bus stop is 15m (S3), at Copt Heath Golf Club.
- When are you available?
I work Monday - Thursday (all day, incl. evenings) and Sunday mornings.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
German: all levels, any age
French: up to A-level
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I try to make lessons fun and plan them according to each pupil's requirements.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching since 1996. While at university I worked for several tutoring agencies in Berlin, teaching French and English. Even when I worked in Marketing, I always had a few pupils for German. In 2006 I made tutoring German and French my "main job". I have familiarized myself with the GCSE, AS & A-level syllabus. I also teach adults (I taught German at Solihull College, Flybe, KPMG etc.) who want to learn German for business or leisure purposes.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students range from GCSE pupils to school teachers and managing directors.
