My teaching is multi-sensory, by which I mean that you will be encouraged to experiment with everything from mind maps to music to help you learn vocabulary and grammar. I am familiar with the requirements of the main exam boards. I am happy to set homework and give you as much exam practice as possible. It would be good to have the means to record your voice during lessons and for homework.
I led exchange trips to Germany every year for 30 years and have spent a lot of time in Germany and France. I believe that pronunication and intonation are key to communication in a foreign language and I will show you how to improve yours in simple steps.
I am a mother of two twenty something daughters and have two additional step children.
My hobbies are my allotment, the piano, walking and caravaning. In addition to German and French I am also fluent in Turkish.
I look forward to meeting you.
