Hello!

My name is Sylvia and I have a First Class degree in Modern Languages (French and German) from Durham University.

I spent the third year of my degree abroad where I worked in a fully-German speaking office in Vienna, Austria and a fully-French speaking office in Strasbourg, France.


At university I tutored French and German A Level students from local schools in the Durham area. I helped them to practise their speaking skills in preparation for oral examinations, marked their essays to help them develop their writing skills and vocabulary, and regularly explained various grammar points.


I have been using MyTutor for two years and enjoy teaching GCSE and A Level French and German students to help them to develop their confidence to achieve their full potential in their examinations.

About my sessions

I am very committed to structuring my online lessons around individual pupils' needs.

For example if a pupil would like extra language speaking support, I would help them to develop their vocabulary and suggest phrases that would win extra marks in oral examinations!


I often make a list of new words student have learnt in a foreign language during the lesson to send to them afterwards - and I can test them on the vocab in the following lesson if they want me to!<...

I often make a list of new words student have learnt in a foreign language during the lesson to send to them afterwards - and I can test them on the vocab in the following lesson if they want me to!


If a pupil would like to focus on improving their writing and grammar skills, I would be keen to mark their essays, suggest areas of improvement, and tailor my lessons around explaining specific grammar points.


I would encourage pupils to constantly ask questions throughout the lessons so that I am sure that they are getting the most out of my teaching. I am very friendly, calm and approachable and would ensure pupils that feel at ease and ready to ask me as many questions as possible.
