Engaging new tutor offering German/English/French

I recently graduated from Oxford University with a First Class BA in German Language and Literature, but am enthusiastic and passionate about literature and language of all kinds - from German and English to French and beyond (with my current hope being to start a Master's in Old Norse next autumn).

I have always enjoyed sharing my new-found knowledge with younger students or even peers, whether that be through mentoring Year 7s or serving as a language prefect whilst still at school, delivering presentations at university, or giving ongoing teaching assistance at my old school in German, French, and English. I was lucky to have good teachers in these subjects at school, and indeed in the former at university, and I'm passionate about using my abilities to pass on what I most love about these subjects - German and French in particular, given that language teaching is often not prioritized enough in the UK.

One thing all my years studying has taught me is that the most important thing for any given student's lesson is that their teacher understands how they learn. This is particularly the case with private tuition, where the individual needs of each student are paramount. No student is the same; therefore no lesson should be the same. It is my goal to work with parents and students to craft specifically tailored tuition depending on each individual.

I'm looking forward to getting started and meeting my first students!
