Wiebke

"My daughter Jessica was home schooled in Greece. Wiebke did a wonderful job helping prepare Jessica for A2 oral and written examinations in German, at flexible times and all via Skype. Wiebke planned and structured lessons meticulously and provided important feedback. As well as building Jessica's confidence and fluency in German, Wiebke taught my daughter presentational and essay writing skills that will stand Jessica in good stead in all her languages and in all the subjects she studies at university. My daughter and I are so grateful for Wiebke’s valuable guidance and support. I strongly recommend her as a Tutor."

About Me

My specialist subjects are, English, French, German (all language and literature) and Drama. I teach these subjects at, A-Level, GCSE (including IGCSE) and Common Entrance. I have a passion for Languages and Theatre throughout a British education with one year at a French university. Whilst I use many creative activities from the rehearsal room to engage my students’ imagination, I have also had formal 11+ training and combine learning techniques from both to ensure a thorough and fun study process. I believe tutoring also means mentoring my students in their study approach and helping them develop independent and transferable learning skills for life.

An open and approachable person, I have always searched for opportunities which stimulate and challenge me as well as those around me. Over my four years of tutoring experience, I have developed a teaching method which encourages my Tutees to feel confident in their learning ability and comfortable in communicating their frustrations with and their pride in their work and progress. I believe progress in tutorials depends upon shared values such as mutual respect and an open environment where mistakes are positive and lead to growth. My warmth, energy and passion for my subjects help create tutorials which are fun, engaging and relevant.

I have worked with individuals aged between 7-18 years in England and France and have led group sessions as well as tutored on a one-to-one basis. In Summer 2015, I was the Au-Pair for a family in Toulouse over a month, and was given responsibility for the children’s’ learning and safety when their parents were away.

I believe all learning should be fun, so I make sure to always bring energy, patience and creativity to my tutorials, whilst also remaining sensitive as well as authoritative.

“She’s like the perfect big sister whilst also being responsible, attentive and lovely… She’s working for two families and the children love her. She always gives interesting lessons with lots of energy so that the children always enjoy themselves whilst learning”

Katy, Manager of My Anglophone Sister, Montpellier

“Wiebke really helped me to build confidence for my exam by having a lot of patience with me. We would do a lot of exercises that prepared me both for my written and oral exams…. I found myself to be more confident in the classroom, especially when doing exam style questions. I particularly really struggled with grammar and Wiebke helped me grasp the language…I managed to achieve my AS level with two grades higher than what was expected of me”
