Information about Rene
I have a BA and an MA in European Studies covering studies in German and French language as well as the culture and society of these countries.
I speak German and French fluently - German to near-native level - and have lived in Europe for a total of 8 years utilising these and other languages.
I am a fully qualified teacher of Modern Foreign Languages, having gained my PGCE in 2005.
Availability: I am available to teach older pupils and adults on a one-to-one basis by arrangement.
I offer grammar, comprehension and conversation practice in German, French and English.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have taught English as a foreign language in France, Germany and Prague and have offered private tuition to students in the UK.
I taught my daughter German to GCSE level outside her normal school curriculum. She took the GCSE as a private candidate and achieved A*. She then went on to study German A level at school and obtained A* in Summer 2017.
Feedback For Rene (2)
I have recently started learning French with Rene. I last had lessons almost 40 years ago, before giving up as soon as I could at school! In later years I have regretted this and with a recent significant birthday I have decided it is now or never! Having started using Apps (duolingo) I knew I needed more help and private tuition felt the least scary option. My first few lessons have coincided with `lockdown` so we have `met` over skype. Rene quickly took anyway any stress I felt from from learning a language and has made it fun and interesting. The lessons are well paced and very very engaging. In addition to the lessons Rene has provided helpful advise on learning methods, books etc. Rene provides lovely feedback and I find her lessons very motivating and engaging. Long may that continue :-) I would highly recommend Rene as a tutor for anyone looking to start or improve their foreign langage skills!
Rene is a friendly, well qualified and experienced tutor. I feel like my German is coming along at a good pace.
