I have very much enjoyed tuition from Jane in Italian, German and Swiss German. Both in group courses and privately, I found the lessons well prepared and interesting. She has been particularly helpful in sourcing teaching material in Swiss German for me and making me recordings which would not be available elsewhere. The private lessons have really boosted my confidence in the topics I need while in Switzerland and for making some sense of the difficult Swiss German language.
I would strongly recommend Jane as a language teacher for a variety of reasons: superb organisational skills exemplified by structured and well prepared hand outs, her ability to instill confidence in you and her overall passion for languages!
I undertook an intensive German language course from April – August starting from a limited knowledge base. Through focused 1:1 coaching and adopting a varied & flexible teaching style my language skills improved significantly during this period. There was an equal balance placed on learning the core grammatical skills and acquiring ‘conversational’ skills. Lessons required hard work but were also enjoyable.
