I have just finished my A Levels and am looking to tutor GCSE level and below. To achieve top grades in languages, last minute revision is not effective, and so I would work with my student to build up a strong vocabulary bank, and then proceed to look at exam style questions. These include listening exercises and practising extended pieces of writing.
I have experience as a language assistant working with young children, and during my time at school I often worked with students in the younger years within my boarding house with both their language coursework and exam preparation. I am currently in a gap year before studying German at King's College London next September (2018).
I have just finished my final A Level examinations in History, German and French and I am looking to work throughout the summer, with the possibility of continuing through the autumn until the end of the year. I speak near fluent French and German, am a keen sportswoman and I can be trusted to work alone and deliver a high standard of output in anything I do. I have worked successfully tutoring children in a school environment and I have also volunteered to work with severely disabled adults. For my final year at school I was fortunate enough to be selected to be Head Girl and play an important part in leading the student body.
Volunteering: 1 week volunteering at Revitalise Sandpipers care home, Southport working with adults with physical disabilities as well as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Language assistant teacher in a local primary school.
I am a bright, proactive and self-motivated individual, who is always to determine the very highest standards in everything I do. I am a fast learner, I have a relaxed nature and get on with people from all walks of life without difficulty.

Claudia was amazing when I was struggling with my German. She was recommended to me through a friend of a friend and I was not disappointed. She was amazingly easy to get on with which was actually very helpful in terms of how comfortable I felt around her and how quickly I learnt from her. My favourite thing about her tutoring style was how patient she was. Claudia is obviously very very advanced in her German and I was nervous that it may affect how suitable she was for teaching someone of my ability (I wasn't very good!). That fear soon subsided once we started our sessions and it stopped feeling like a lesson, although I learnt plenty, and began feeling like a friend giving me a helping hand. As I became more advanced in my German, Claudia was able to teach me to sound more like a native speaker and less like a beginner's textbook. As testament to Claudia and her tutoring abilities I went on to achieve a level 6 in IB German and I'm much more confident. Having the extra sessions alongside my school hours really helped and I am so thankful for Claudias time and patience.
Claudia tutored me on an informal basis at school. Her help with methods to memorise vocabulary and perfect my essay writing enabled me to achieve top grades at both GCSE and A Level. I would really recommend Claudia to anyone that's looking for some extra help as she not only takes the lessons seriously but is also dynamic and easy to get along with.
