About me

I moved to London in 2022 to begin an MA in German Studies at University College London, having gained a BA in German Studies from the University of Sheffield in 2020 and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education from the University of Sussex in 2021. I returned to Sheffield following my PGCE to teach Beginner, Post-Beginner and Advanced German at the University’s Modern Languages Centre. My teaching also includes private tuition, which I deliver both in-person and online. Outside of teaching I have a keen interest in politics and current affairs.

About the Language Centre

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.
