I am a German native speaker with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Master of Arts in Theatre Pedagogy. Further, I hold a Montessori Certificate. I taught and examined the German GCSE in the 2017 examinations with a very good track record and have over six years of experience.
Personally, I want to create a safe and inspiring room, for the academic and personal development of the students to enable them to reach their full potential.
The Montessori teaching methods allow for a very personal approach to teaching and learning in all subjects and I can model exercises on the personal and education needs of every tutee. Material, which is created specifically for the individual, facilitates greater academic advancement and the development of personal confidence.
My tutoring of German and preparation for GCSE/A-Level include the full extent of the four assessment criteria: Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading. For every tutee I create my own exercises and material, which I base on the level and skill of the student and which follow the requirements from the examination boards.
For over five years as an after school supervisor and teaching assistant in Germany I also was responsible for the supervision of one classroom for the homework and daily revision to aid the students in their learning and to provide additional assistance. In this capacity I supported students across all subjects with a particular focus on English, German, History and Math. The students attended Year 5 to 10 and all of them achieved very good results in their respective exams.
Through this time I developed a great capacity for empathy and a understanding of those students struggling with learning a foreign language and the challenges they face.
My work as a Drama teacher for Years 5 and 6 involved the teaching of the basics of acting, theatre theories and to provide a fundamental understanding of Drama. I supported the students to develop their own understanding of stagecraft and created a room for the discovery of their personal creativity and confidence which also involved the creation of my own exercises to improve body language and speech.
