About me

Hello! My name is Mikey and I study Modern and Medieval Languages at Cambridge University. I simply love my subject because I believe that the key to unlocking other cultures and ideas is to experience them in their original language. Business, relationships, cultural awareness... the list of things that can be enriched by language study goes on. I have been helping younger students for several years now to improve their language skills and am keen to share my knowledge with you! Having experience in both Romance and Germanic languages allows me to make language study relatable and enjoyable to all students, and I believe that enjoyment is crucial to true progress.

About my sessions

Lessons are always planned with a warm-up activity to stimulate the tongue (!) and get you in the mood to speak another language. This can be done either by asking about your week in the target language or by recapping material covered in the previous session. After this we will move on to the main body of the lesson, mixing components of grammar (no textbook grammar exercises in sight, I promise!), vocabulary and comprehension.

Lessons are always planned with a warm-up activity to stimulate the tongue (!) and get you in the mood to speak another language. This can be done either by asking about your week in the target language or by recapping material covered in the previous session. After this we will move on to the main body of the lesson, mixing components of grammar (no textbook grammar exercises in sight, I promise!), vocabulary and comprehension. Reading, writing, speaking and listening are the four main areas key to language learning, meaning that lessons will be constructed using a range of stimulating resources, including video clips, music, short passages to read and conversation with one another in the target language. All lessons will be tailor-made to suit the student, so I will take into account the strengths and weaknesses of the student and create a lesson that is both fun and educational.
