Languages Expert with History and GCSE Tutoring Capabilities
I'm a languages enthusiast, with degree-level German and Russian as well as Intermediate Italian and Basic French. I studied History to IB Higher level and history units in my degree involved significant historical research and essay-writing. Also comfortable teaching most subjects to GCSE level, although ideally some time to prepare beforehand would be ideal :)
I take real pride in not just learning a language, but learning how languages themselves function. Grammar is my speciality, and I have some experience of historical linguistics too, all of which make languages much more than just vocab: for me, they're an insight into the past, an exciting puzzle, and much more. I would like to think this is reflected in my high language exam results, achieving 94% in my IB Higher German and high 2:1s overall in my languages at university. I would love to help anyone learning a language, and my aim is to genuinely make a difference for those I tutor!
I am based between Kew and Putney, and am happy to travel within a few miles to get to you as I have a car and good public transport nearby. Weekdays (anytime) are best for me, but I'm very happy to come on the weekend - within reason - if that works better.
