About me

Hi there! My name's Izzy and I recently graduated from Oxford University with a First Class degree in French and German Language and Literature. Before that, I achieved a full 45/45 point score in the International Baccalaureate, with Higher Level English, French and German, and Standard Level Maths, History, and Physics. I have been fascinated by languages and their literatures since I began studying them, and to this day am still surprised by the discoveries I make while tutoring these...

Hi there! My name's Izzy and I recently graduated from Oxford University with a First Class degree in French and German Language and Literature. Before that, I achieved a full 45/45 point score in the International Baccalaureate, with Higher Level English, French and German, and Standard Level Maths, History, and Physics. I have been fascinated by languages and their literatures since I began studying them, and to this day am still surprised by the discoveries I make while tutoring these fantastic subjects - I often find myself learning as I teach!


I have amassed over 6 years' experience in both private one-on-one tuition and classroom teaching, having taught extensively online and in Sweden, France and England. My specialist subjects are French and German, taught at all levels, as well as tailor-made IB Extended Essay assistance, MLAT/Oxbridge preparation, and Personal Statement mentoring. I strive to be a friendly and fun tutor with the ability to combine enjoyable classes and effective results - together we can find a new approach to your studies which both motivates and supports you all the way. I look forward to working with you :)

About my sessions

I am committed to fully structuring and preparing every lesson I teach and I draw from a large range of learning materials I have collected over my years of tutoring which I ensure the student has access to prior to each session. Coupled with the online whiteboard and editing tools, I find this a highly effective way to deliver online tuition.

I am committed to fully structuring and preparing every lesson I teach and I draw from a large range of learning materials I have collected over my years of tutoring which I ensure the student has access to prior to each session. Coupled with the online whiteboard and editing tools, I find this a highly effective way to deliver online tuition.


However, I also recognise that every student is unique and has individual needs - this might mean we concentrate on oral language learning, listening exercises, reading comprehension, writing skills, literary analysis or any combination of the above! I believe the key to success is a flexible approach to learning, and a willingness to reassess and adapt our methods regularly. To this end I incorporate vocab tests, quizzes and frequent recaps to consolidate the material we've covered...all while maintaining a sense of fun and intellectual adventure within the classes so you feel stimulated and engaged!

Izzy has been an excellent Tutor, I have seen my french drastically improve since our tutoring has began. She takes into consideration my learning style and adapts our lessons as such. I only wish i had had her longer!!

Thanks very much Ilona, it's been a real pleasure working with you. I have been so impressed by your progress, especially in tackling your first literary text in French which was no mean feat! I wish you a relaxing Easter break and the best of luck for your GCSEs and beyond. All the best, Izzy

My Son started German after getting comfortable with Spanish. At home, he is exposed to Italian and Farsi and we felt he would find German as interesting as Spanish / Italian and Farsi. But once he had been to around 40 hours of German lessons over a summer he decided it was not as beautiful as Spanish or Romano languages! A couple of lessons with Izzy and he is now showing off his German, says he feels more comfortable and is making good progress. He is now engaged and interested which is exactly what we had hoped he would get from his tutor. Thanks Izzy.

My daughter came out of her first lesson feeling confident that the tutor understood where her mental blocks occurred. She said her tutor had a firm no-nonsense approach but was still upbeat which is exactly what she needs from a French-tutor.
