You will find hundreds of language tutors online who teach all the languages you may wish to learn. So why choose me as a language teacher?
- Fully Qualified Language Teacher
I completed my first teaching qualification in 2019 (Cert. TESOL) at Boston College, which taught me the basics of language learning, from this course, I was offered a job at the same college based on my teaching merit. Since then, I have gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Secondary Education (PGCE) for French and German, as well as Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with Outstanding. I have also obtained Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Status
- Ten Years Teaching Experience
In addition to my qualifications, I am proud to hold 10 years teaching experience, teaching individual, couples, small groups and large groups of children, teenagers and adults. I have taught German and French in local secondary schools, as well as as a private tutor online and near Spalding, with high levels of success. This includes helping students attain grades A and A* (from Grade D’s).As well as this, I have experience teaching Business English to students in France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland online for prestigious companies such as Siemens, Coca Cola, Redbull and EE. I have taught hundreds of ESL students, Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing at Boston College since 2009 with excellent pass rates.
KEY TEACHING EXPERIENCE
- 10+ years of teaching experience in secondary school, college, privately
- 6+ years of online teaching using Skype and professional bespoke teaching platforms

If you need a language teacher, but can’t or don’t wish to travel, Skype offers a reliable service with video for a very personal experience. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world (providing there is a good internet connection), you can have a language lesson! Often students are worried about losing something with online lessons, but there really is no need to worry! I share my screen, use the video camera and send files before the lessons so that you feel confident, ready for language learning.
4. Learn Languages face-face near Spalding, Bourne, Peterborough and Boston
If you are in or near Spalding, Bourne, Peterborough and Boston, please get in touch. I offer German tuition, French lessons and ESL classes from my premises in West Pinchbeck.
5. Fun, Friendly and Flexible
I am an extremely enthusiastic teacher with a real passion for teaching and helping learners reach their goals in a fun and engaging way. Teaching online has differences to teaching face-to-face. However, in the same way as teaching with a student in front of you, as an online language tutor, I use clear instructions, examples, games, gap filling activities, matching activities, role plays, explanation sheets, handouts and innovative methods of teaching that I have learned over the past nine years to help learners to learn any language. I am a native English speaker but I travel regularly to France and Germany and communicate with native French and German speakers every day.
Lessons are tailor-made for each student and they are as interactive as possible, with you contributing as much as you can. Students learn best by making mistakes and so I make notes of your mistakes as the lesson progresses and allow you to tell me how the mistakes should be corrected during the lesson at a couple of intervals – this really works on improving your fluency quickly!

- Where am I located?

I am lucky enough to have had many students over the years, including children, teenagers and adults, for German lessons, French lessons and ESL. Here are just a few testimonials from them:
“I have a lesson with Sabina almost every week, often at different times due to my work schedule, we start our lessons in German. Greeting each other in German and talking about what I have done in the week, e.g. activities, work, going out, eaten etc… This way I’m learning the language by my own life, which I really enjoy. It puts relevance to what I am learning, its not just about saying hello, my name is, I like eating… its about being given the tools to hold a conversation with someone in another language. Our lessons have taught me to communicate with people, not just talk to people. My biggest weakness is listening comprehension, I need to have someone say the words to me, and hold that conversation in German, as listening to TV, YouTube is not enough for you to have proper social interactions. What Sabina has done for me is given me the tools needed to understand sentences not just a word here or there, so when our lessons are over I know I have learned something specific and helpful to my language comprehension, which makes me feel good about myself.
Sabina takes the time to tailor a lesson to your needs, which is brilliant. For our lessons, I do want to learn the grammar, but I don’t want to drown in it, so she explains how and why sentences are structured in the way they are and what grammar to use. Then lets me use the sentences and grammar I have learned, without overloading my mind. This is very useful as the new information I am taught stays current. She sets me assignments to do between lessons, this is also very useful as it allows expansion on the lesson gone and a good basis for the next lesson, allowing me to learn quicker.
Most importantly though, if I have a question, if I don’t know what to say, if I can’t understand what I’m being told, I feel comfortable to ask for help, which to me, is very important. I would highly recommend her for any of your language learning needs.” Alex E. (German Conversation Classes – March 2019)
