Languages are fun!
Hello, I am a qualified Language teacher and a native speaker of German and Russian, but can also teach French and Latin. I have a 1st Class degree in Linguistics and am very passionate about languages - I love explaining the rules of a language in creative and enjoyable ways. I have experience teaching German and French in secondary schools (year 7 up to A level), but also as a private tutor, and have a lot of fun resources to help with your written and spoken language skills.
I`m the right tutor for you, whatever your needs are - improving your marks in school or university, preparing for GCSE or A-Level exams, or just learning a language for fun. Children of all ages and adults are equally welcome!
I am a friendly, relaxed and patient person with a great sense of humour. I grew up in Germany (near Cologne) but have lived in the UK since 2008, currently located in Basingstoke.
I look forward to hearing from you! :)
Availability: Evenings and weekends are preferred, but other arrangements can be made, so please get in touch.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I studied linguistics and worked as a private language tutor in Germany before moving to the UK. I completed my PGCE in Swansea in 2010 and have taught German and French to all key stages in 3 schools across England and Wales, an experience which I truly enjoyed. At the moment I am working as a Quality Analyst for international companies, however I am also teaching German as a private tutor.

review(s) for Julia.
Julia is an excellent tutor with a good manner and positive outlook. She has helped my son with his German and his confidence with the subject has improved considerably since Julia has worked with him. Highly recommended.
Julia is friendly and very helpful. She is well prepared and has extra material prepared which is supplementary to the text book and has also extra material online via Quizlet.
I am enjoying my lessons with Julia - cant recommend her too highly
Julia is providing tutoring for my daughter, aged 14, in German. She is always punctual and very professional. My daughter is new to learning German and is really enjoying the sessions with Julia. At the end of each session she says how much she has enjoyed it. I am very happy to recommend Julia as an excellent tutor.
I am finding Julia´s classes really helpful - the material and exercises are also really good, so cannot complaint!
