About me

Hi, I am a student at Cambridge University studying French and German and looking to do some tutoring. I have always been interested in languages and have wanted to be able to speak, read and understand other languages since I was very young. I would love to help any language learners who feel that they are struggling with grammar or fluency for speaking exams and, having done school exams recently myself, I have experience in preparing for them.

Hi, I am a student at Cambridge University studying French and German and looking to do some tutoring. I have always been interested in languages and have wanted to be able to speak, read and understand other languages since I was very young. I would love to help any language learners who feel that they are struggling with grammar or fluency for speaking exams and, having done school exams recently myself, I have experience in preparing for them.


I also have a lot of experience tutoring, both languages and maths to GCSE level. I spent a lot of time both in school and out of school tutoring younger pupils in French, German and maths to prepare them for exams but most importantly to improve their level in the subject.

About my sessions

The sessions I offer can be tailored towards the needs of the student. During or before the first session, the student will be asked what they think they need help from so that the sessions can be tailored to their requirements. If it is simple exam preparation that is required then we can concentrate on exam techniques and past paper questions. If the student wants, some homework can be set and marked for the next session, but this will be down to whether the student feels they can benefit f...

The sessions I offer can be tailored towards the needs of the student. During or before the first session, the student will be asked what they think they need help from so that the sessions can be tailored to their requirements. If it is simple exam preparation that is required then we can concentrate on exam techniques and past paper questions. If the student wants, some homework can be set and marked for the next session, but this will be down to whether the student feels they can benefit from this.


Often with languages, it is grammar that provides the first major problem for learners. Having experience of having to learn the grammar structures for both French and German, I am well-equipped to teach the grammar and to help students progress in their understanding. With maths, it may be that some questions that were answered in school were not understood, we could then in a session go through these and do some more similar examples, or the student could outline some areas that they have not fully understood and we can look at them in more detail.


Tutoring in a one-to-one environment can be a great help for student. It means that they have an hour where they can ask any questions and clarify any problems that may arise at school. The student will hopefully notice an improvement in grades at school and we should be able to notice an improvement in the standard of work during our sessions as time goes on.

George has helped my daughter improve her spoken German for her GCSE oral exam. He pays great attention to detail and given her many strategies to improve her vocabulary and sentence structure. She has really enjoyed his lessons and I highly recommend him as a teacher.

George fitted in a couple of lessons with my son at the very last minute to help before his French GCSE speaking exam. He gave very useful feedback, especially pronunciation, and was also positive and encouraging. I think it has given my son more confidence.
