Philip H‚Äčotchkiss

German-to-English Translator, Online Tutor, Musician, Radio Presenter


I have worked in education in Germany, Switzerland and the UK since 1996 - initially as an English Language Assistant, before later becoming the sole English Teacher at an independent school in eastern Switzerland from 2010-2014. Since I returned to the UK in 2015, I have worked as an English Teacher to students visiting the UK, and I also provide individual tuition in German, English and French (now in an online setting due to COVID-19 restrictions).

I hold a Cambridge CELTA qualification to teach English as a foreign language (gained in Switzerland), in addition to my MA degree in Language Studies (Linguistics) and my BA degree in German and French (gained at Lancaster University).
