Alison from Britain/Germany

Hello, my name is Alison and I live in Germany and have been teaching English for the past ten years. I was born in London to a Welsh family and grew up in Herefordshire, a county on the Welsh border. I trained as a classical ballet dancer and spent fifteen years dancing around theatres in Germany and Austria before getting married and having three wonderful children.
For the past 25 years I have been writing reviews for Dance Europe, a monthly dance magazine that covers ballet and contemporary productions from all over Europe and beyond. Apart from that I also work in the German school system looking after students in the after school clubs helping them with their English and French homework. I enjoy reading, walking, theatre and art, in fact anything cultural interests me, and of course languages!


Welcome to the Chatterbug Tutor Community @AlisonM, we are happy to have you onboard! :slight_smile:

Thank you for having me, look forward to getting started.


Dear Alison

You are a such a good teacher and you have help me very much to improve my english in the last two weeks. I hope that you will be also in the future my tutor because I can learn very much from you. I hope that the program will work the next time and hope that you will be my tutor there.
A really good sorry for today
and the best wishes for the best tutor ever


Dear Luisa,
Please don‘t worry about it, I have sent a message to the team explaining what happened and asked what the trouble was and how we can sort it out but I won‘t get an answer until Monday. I‘ll be very happy to tutor you again so hopefully it will work out for a time next week. Have a good weekend and see you soon. Best wishes, Alison


Hallo Alison, here is a note to the reader. I‘ll use the example in our lesson tomorrow.
