I am a recent graduate from Edinburgh University with a First Class degree in Classics. I have a strong passion for classical literature, especially Archaic Greek poetry (though I have studied and enjoyed a variety of genres from a range of periods from the Archaic to the Byzantine periods). I have experience working with a range of ages, having been a primary school classroom assistant to 6-8 year olds when I was in Sixth Form, helping in their maths and reading lessons, as well as tutoring 11-13 year olds in Latin for a couple of years. At school, I also ran a Classics club for 11-13 year olds, which involved both informative and creative aspects. More informally, I have often helped younger family members and family friends' children with their homework, mainly English and maths. These experiences, as well as my time in a supportive role for international students during my time at university, has taught me a lot of patience and helped me to be able to adapt to the individual student's needs. With a strong academic record throughout my education (9 A*/As in GCSEs; 43/45 points for International Baccalaureate with Higher Level Maths, Latin and Classical Greek), I am well-equipped to help with general exam technique as well as giving feedback on essay skills. I am also able to help with Music Theory up to Grade 5 (ABRSM), having studied the piano for over a decade and with a Music Diploma in Piano. During university, I have won awards for both my language skills and my coursework, so I have a solid foundation from which to help my students improve both their grammar and their academic writing skills. Ultimately, I hope to encourage my students find their own interest and enjoyment in Classics and learning about ancient civilisations.
I have taught German in schools for over 20 years, which included working with individuals, small and class-size groups of all ages. Having gained first experience in teaching German while working as a British Council Foreign Language Assistant in East Devon, I decided to follow a career in teaching German at secondary and tertiary level. 'Born and bred' in the north of Germany, you will not struggle to understand my accent. I speak - what many people refer to as - „Hochdeutsch” - (Standard German) as spoken in/around/north of Hanover. However, you might notice that I tend to say „Hamburch” rather than „Hamburg”. And of course, I tend to stretch my vowels - all part of being an „echter Norddeutscher”. If you wondered how to pronounce „Sönke", it's a bit like "Z"-"ea" (as in "ea-rly")-"n"-"k"-"ea" (as in "ea-rly"). I am a native speaker and have a BA and a MA degree. Most importantly for language learners, I am a qualified teacher with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in teaching secondary German (with French and Geography). I am also a current Assessment Associate for Pearson/Edexcel (GCSE and A Level), an IoLET Affiliate Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and a Supporter Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, studying towards a TransDip. The 2017/2018 examination season was yet another very successful year for my tutees. I do not only keep my 100% pass rate; all my A Level tutees outperformed they predicted grades (based on their 'Mocks') by two grades and my GCSE/IGCSE tutees improved their predicted grades by at least three grades/digits. Many of them outperformed their target grades (where possible) and one of them improved by five grades/digits compared to her predicted '4' ('Mocks').
Hi, I'm Coco! I'm British but I was born in France and lived there up until my French baccalaureate which I passed with a Distinction. I then studied a four-year Bachelor degree in Spanish and History of Art at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland where I graduated with a High 2:1 and distinction in spoken Spanish. I am a very enthusiastic and positive person and I love to communicate with people! I've been teaching English, French and Spanish for the past five years to help finance my studies. I tutor in person in cafés or at students' homes but also online to students that live further away and even abroad. Whether online or in person my students' ages vary between the age of 6 and 55. Online tutoring is incredibly rewarding for students: I have found students gain confidence quicker because it can be less intimidating than face-to-face lessons and nothing is actually different from face-to-face classes (if anything, online tutoring is more practical for teaching too) with interactive exercises and lessons as well as reading, listening and conversation exercises. My teaching methods are as follows: My classes are varied with exercises such as conversation, comprehension, pronunciation, grammar using various supports (concise and clear grammar lessons, newspaper articles, videos, exam exercises) that allow students to never get bored nor see time go by. All exercises vary depending on the student. I like to think that my students don't see our classes as a chore but rather as an hour that is fun and goes by very quickly and it is important to me that students notice their progress after each lesson. I would love to help you progress in English, French or Spanish. Feel free to get in touch for a chat if you are interested!
