About me

Hi there, I'm George, I currently work at Imperial College London and at MyTutor part-time. I am a very experienced premium tutor, with over 220 completed tutorials and a 5 star rating. I am a distinction-level Masters graduate in International Security from the University of Sussex, and I obtained a First-class Honours degree in French, German and European Studies​ from the University of Southampton. I want to share my passion for language learning and can help you succeed! 

What experience do I have as a linguist? I studied for a year at a university in Germany and as well as in Southampton, I have studied French and German in the cities of Montpellier, Freiburg and Berlin. I'm a friendly and approachable person and I think I could really help you get the most out of studying a language, which I know from my own experience can be challenging but also very rewarding. I have a proven track record of helping students achieve beyond their expectations, but more importantly, my students have found my approach helps them feel comfortable and eager to learn.

Having achieved a distinction in my MA, a first in my degree and undergraduate dissertation, an A in my extended project and an A in my dissertation proposal, I can also help with extended projects and personal statements.

About my sessions

Let's tailor the classes to your particular needs, to make the fastest possible progress. I will encourage students to shape the lessons as they feel necessary, but I also understand that some students may not know what they need help with. In this case, I would make some fun activities and assess what particular needs the student has. I try to make my lessons as interactive as possible and have a proven track record of happy students (take a look at my feedback!). I look forward to hearing from you!

Chris (Parent)

We were concerned that our son was struggling with GCSE French. He was heading for a D according to his teachers and results. In May this year we found George and we asked him to help improve our sons confidence in speaking in French and also with helping him through whatever necessary to improve his results. The impact on our son was amazing. His confidence grew in speaking and experimenting with French. He improved so much even his teachers were impressed. Today Finn achieved a B in GCSE French and we are all thrilled. Thanks George!!

Questions George has answered

What is a separable verb and how is it formed?

In German some verbs are separable. This means that they are formed of two parts which can be separated. Some examples are:

ankommen (to arrive), ausgehen (to go out), einladen (to invite), abwaschen (to wash up)

(the separable part of the verb is in bold)

To form a sentence in the present tense, the first part of the separable verb (its 'particle') goes to the end of sentence. Here are some examples:

Ich wasche jeden Tag ab. (I wash up every day)

Wann gehst du aus? (When are you going out?)

Der Zug kommt in fünf Minuten an. (The train arrives in five minutes)

Note how the second part of the verb is conjugated as normal and the first part (particle) goes to the very end of the sentence.
