Information about Gill
Oxford Modern Languages graduate with 10 years` experience, enjoys teaching teenagers and gets good results
I`m an outgoing and confident communicator who enjoys working with teenagers and helping them achieve their full potential. As well as tutoring, I have worked as an exam invigilator in a local secondary school for the past 8 years, so I`m very familiar with the demands of GCSEs.
I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for German and making lessons fun and memorable. Lessons are tailored to individual needs and ability and prepared thoroughly in advance. I also provide extra materials on grammar and vocabulary free of charge.
Practice in speaking forms an important part of the class, as there is little time for this at school. I build students` confidence in speaking and writing, which are usually the most challenging skills.
Naturally I can help students get to grips with grammar, as well as widening their vocabulary and I provide extra exercises to help them practise.
Outside my teaching work, I love the outdoors: walking, gardening, and wildlife.
Availability: Mon - Fri after school, occasional Saturday mornings
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have been working as a private tutor for 10 years, working mainly with students aged 12-16. My experience includes preparing students for GCSE exams and improving on predicted grades.
Feedback For Gill (5)
We were introduced to Gill at a time when my daughter was frustrated, confused and desperate to give up German. Gill has been amazing. She was quick to identify the issues and has helped to build my daughters confidence to the point where she looked forward to her weekly tutor sessions. Gill is friendly, helpful and is always on time and well prepared for the lessons. She was quick to adapt to online learning support as a result of Lockdown and we are hopeful that our daughter will do well in her GCSE. Gill certainly put her in the best possible place to succeed. I can`t recommend Gill as a tutor highly enough.
Gill has been very patient with my son whilst building his confidence and allowing him to see his potential.
