(London 1989 - 1991; Lille, France, 1991 - 1996.)
In 1996 I went into teaching and taught French and German to A level in two schools, and was in overall charge of the teaching of German in my second school from September 2000 until my departure to Freiburg in July 2003.
In 1999 I began examining G.C.S.E. Spoken German for OCR (aka Oxford & Cambridge Examinations Board) which I continue to do today. In addition I also serve as Examiner in German for University of Cambridge International Examinations
After enjoying six years as a freelance translator and teacher in Freiburg, Germany, I now reside in Basildon, UK, where I continue to translate from both French and German into English on a freelance basis. Because I enjoy variety in my work, I also offer to undertake any other service my knowledge skills allow me to work on from home, including private tuition I work with a dedicated, fully functional home office.
I cope very well of the stress invilved in working to tight deadlines, and I possess an extensive network of professional contacts throughout Europe on whom I can count for a correct answer, if I don\'t happen to have the answer to something either in my brain or at my fingertips!
Look no further for a competent, reliable, speedy and professional service for all your translating requirements.
