I am experienced at teaching all levels, however, and have prepared students over the past thirty years for most exams. I teach German GSCE and A Level, and also General German.

Tell me about some of your current students.
A number of my students are business executives, who need to write reports for their work, and I help them to polish and hone their written English. I also tutor university teachers of English in universities abroad, who want to keep up a high standard of English, or who ask me to check their work, or answer questions they have about high-level grammar or other points.
