My degree was in German and French and I have taught German in adult education, as well as ESL and EFL. For the past 19 years I have been a private tutor of German and French and have up to date knowledge of syllabus requirements of all examination boards and a vast number of past papers. Creating a very good relationship with a pupil is very important to me and I still remain in contact with some past families. Whilst focussing on examination preparation where appropriate I also aim to ensure that language learning is enjoyable.
