I'm an experienced teacher who loves teaching, supporting and inspiring people of all ages and abilities, from beginners to advanced and degree level. Each lesson is planned for individual students e.g. to practise conversational language and improve fluency, to build and improve knowledge of grammar and structures, to practise reading and listening or to improve ability and confidence in writing in the target language.
I am a native English speaker and fluent in German. I've been teaching English, French and German for over 30 years so I've taught thousands of people of all ages from primary school pupils to Advanced Level students and business executives, from those who wanted to get by or improve their language skills for travel and leisure to professionals working in the health service. I love teaching and can help to Improve your confidence, your fluency and your grammar so you can understand and communicate well. Whatever your language needs are, I'd really like to help you. I'm known as a highly skilled and patient teacher by those I have helped.
Here are a few quotes from them:
I got my A-Level results today and an A and two Bs; the A was in German! I really wasn't expecting that German would end up being my best subject! Thank you for all of the help you gave me."
DANIEL - A-LEVEL STUDENT
"Gerry's teaching was outstanding, he helped our son to improve his final Grade from a C to an A in just six months. He was always well prepared and tailored the sessions exactly to our son's needs. We would recommend Gerry without hesitation! "
ELIZABETH & RORY - PARENTS OF AN A-LEVEL STUDENT
"I stayed with Gerry's Homestay for two weeks to improve my English. It was a great experience and Gerry and his wife are very kind and helpful.

I really improved my English and had a great time!"
