About me

I am a very enthusiastic, hardworking and bubbly 2nd year student at the University of Oxford, reading German. Having grown up in Germany and worked in France (aside from taking both for A Level), I really hope I can help you with all of your language based questions, and in the process, spark your interest for the subject as whole! The analytical and literature based nature of my degree means that I am passionate about all aspects of literature and so also really enjoy tutoring English. Havi...

I am a very enthusiastic, hardworking and bubbly 2nd year student at the University of Oxford, reading German. Having grown up in Germany and worked in France (aside from taking both for A Level), I really hope I can help you with all of your language based questions, and in the process, spark your interest for the subject as whole! The analytical and literature based nature of my degree means that I am passionate about all aspects of literature and so also really enjoy tutoring English. Having gone through it all myself, I completely relate to the process of taking A Levels/GCSEs, and can’t wait to help you absolutely smash it!

I think it’s so important first to understand how to do something, but then also explain why, so I will often ask you to explain your thinking as this means you’re much more likely to remember what you’re learning! Doing this also allows us to...

I think it’s so important first to understand how to do something, but then also explain why, so I will often ask you to explain your thinking as this means you’re much more likely to remember what you’re learning! Doing this also allows us to go through things step by step using the interactive whiteboard on your screen, allowing me to explain everything as we go. Please also bring along any past papers or practise questions that you want to go through (I will as well!) so that we can make sure you’re completely prepared to tackle whatever comes up!
