Talking My Language
Organisational and linguistic support at Trade Fairs in Europe and for companies hosting visits from European buyers.
Private Tuition via Zoom for GCSE and A Level students of English Language, French and German.
I help students to achieve the grades they need for VIth Form or university entrance. I work both with students who are struggling / under-performing and with talented students aiming for a place at Oxford, Cambridge or Durham.
My students make rapid progress and grow in confidence. After about 5 sessions they find that they can interact more in class, answer more questions and that their marks/end-of-term exam grades improve.
We work with materials and workbooks relevant to the syllabus and do practice exam questions from past papers of their examination Board. We also do listening and speaking exercises. I provide the students with a strategy and a time limit for tackling each type of question. (As an ‘exam machine’ myself, I am fairly adept at knowing which aspects of learning the examiner is testing and therefore which points should be included in the answer to gain the marks.) Thus, my students go into the exam knowing exactly what to expect,feeling well-prepared and calm.
For local businesses looking to expand into French and German-speaking countries, I am happy to provide organisational and linguistic support at Trade Fairs, or visits to and from potential buyers.
