I have been a language teacher for the last 4 years. Apart from my native English I speak fluent French and German (both to C1 standard) and have a strong working knowledge of both Japanese and Russian. I studied French at university and took translation classes. I have lived in both France and Switzerland and have practical knowledge of both those languages.

In my classes I place a strong emphasis on translation during the early stages in order to show my students how the languages work and to draw attention to grammatical structures. Thanks to this I have translated countless texts into and out of English for the benefit of my students. 

I am dilligent and organized with a strong understanding of all my languages and am fully capable of providing accurate, well written translations.
