About me

I’ve currently just finished my first year of studying German and History at the University of Leeds. I know German can be quite a niche subject to take in the UK but I find it really fascinating. I’m also of the belief that learning languages is one of the best things that you can do in life. I read a lot, which as it turns out is a necessity when doing history at uni, but as I find it interesting it doesn’t seem so bad!

I’ve currently just finished my first year of studying German and History at the University of Leeds. I know German can be quite a niche subject to take in the UK but I find it really fascinating. I’m also of the belief that learning languages is one of the best things that you can do in life. I read a lot, which as it turns out is a necessity when doing history at uni, but as I find it interesting it doesn’t seem so bad!


At school I did Cambridge Pre U, which differs slightly from normal A Levels, but I am aware of the general format for both. I sat 14 exams in four subjects, so I understand how stressful the process can be and just hope that I can help make it slightly less so! Aside from German and history, I also did French and English at A-level. 


I spent 6 years living in Switzerland, which is where I first started learning German, and having to use the language on a daily basis has made me confident in my speaking. Personally I find the German language very logical, and as a tutor I will aim to break things down so it does not seem as daunting as many people believe. 


I’m looking to tutor mainly for German but am very willing to look over essays in either history or English as well.

About my sessions

When it comes to online lessons it very much depends on what the student best responds to, but generally I will look to break things down and take it step by step, as I believe it makes harder questions look far less overwhelming.


Preparations for my online lessons will mainly include looking over the subject areas in which help is needed and preparing questions to work through together. As I said before, a lot of it depends on the individual students.

Preparations for my online lessons will mainly include looking over the subject areas in which help is needed and preparing questions to work through together. As I said before, a lot of it depends on the individual students. 


One important aspect of tutoring which I think can help measure progress is allowing the student to attempt any questions first and essentially take the lead when answering it, so that I can have a feel for how they approach answering and how their learning is improving, before helping them if they are struggling. 


In terms of encouraging learning, I think it’s so important to focus on the little things that they are getting right as it can be so easy to get bogged down and overwhelmed when there is a lot that you don’t understand. Definitely focus on the positive rather than being critical!
