Hi! I’m Gillian. The main things you need to know is that I’ve always been mad about languages and teaching and my students describe me as a patient and helpful teacher and they enjoy my classes. So that’s it – join up and see for yourself! Only small groups – perfect for learning!
Recently been graded an outstanding teacher- Grade 1 by IQA at Woodspeen Traning – February 2022
Comments from new, small online courses 2020/21 – “ a great experience, a tonic to lockdown!” *a teacher that always goes the extra mile!”
· “Warm, friendly teaching. You have excellent rapport with class – thank you.”
· “Interactive learning (including the fact that everyone has to participate)” Ann (see longer testimonial below)
I have always been interested in languages and different cultures from a very young age and my life has revolved around studying French and German at school and university, which led me to living in Frankfurt, Germany and Brussels, Belgium, having also studied at Giessen University.
I am qualified to teach German, French, Spanish and ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages). I have a BA Degree in Languages for Business and a relevant teaching qualification, together with 25 years of teaching experience. I have worked at Kirklees College for a period of 8 years teaching German to GCSE level and French to primary school teachers and in businesses.
I have a varied working life, teaching mainly French or German, either one-to-one classes in businesses in West Yorkshire, a small group in the evening in Brighouse, ESOL, classes in Huddersfield, at beginner to a very high level standard of fluency. I teach French and German business courses tailored to individuals or small/large groups on their own premises in the West Yorkshire area including Leeds.
My business students describe me as being flexible and understanding, amongst other things! I don’t offer many classes but prefer to set up bespoke courses with any students who contact me and we can work out the content, day and time together. Find me on LinkedIn.
