Hi! I’m Gillian, 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 20 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 students describe me as being patient and someone able to create a good atmosphere in my classes and 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.
