My first language is German and I have lived in Aberdeenshire for more than 20 years. From my own experience I know that speaking more than one language can open up entire new worlds and provide exciting opportunities. For pupils it can be sometimes hard to see the learning experience in this way when exams and deadlines are looming. My aim is to find out at which level pupils are and help them to confidently move on from there. I hold a BA Honours degree in modern languages. My children grew up bilingual and are fluent in English and German. I have taught adults as well as helping out at our local school. I am very familiar with the demands of National 5, Highers and Advanced Highers as my children were the first to go through this new system. When I am not tutoring I work as freelance Translator and Content Writer in both languages.

Over the years I have been teaching adults and children. I have not counted the exact numbers of hours. What matters more to me are the results such as holding an entire conversation in German language with one of the pupils.
