Katharine (Tutor in Sheffield)
Information about Katharine
I have an Hons degree in Modern Languages from the University of Sheffield and I offer tutoring in Spanish, French and German at all levels. I also have an MA in Latin American Studies from the same university.
I have experience of tutoring on a one-to-one basis in England and abroad, and I also have a broad knowledge and firsthand experience of cultures in many of the countries where these languages are spoken.
Lessons normally last an hour and we can arrange to have the lesson at your house or at an alternative suitable venue.
The lessons are tailored to the individualís particular linguistic needs, depending on the language and specified areas for improvement. They may vary from conversational to grammar, comprehension, listening or translating. Suitable for children and adults, from beginners to advanced level.
I encourage the improvement of language through a variety of ways, including reading and writing, media and cinema, and also through conversation. I am able to provide a variety of resources to aid in language learning. I believe that when learning a language, it is important to learn about and understand the cultural context, thus enabling the individual to express themselves appropriately and effectively. This also makes learning a language more fun and interactive!
From living in many different countries, including France, Canada and Argentina, I am highly aware of the different accents and dialects within the languages, and I am able to teach the language form that is appropriate to the individualís situation or context.
I possess a clean CRB certificate and I have much experience of working with children and teenagers of all ages.
