About me

I study French and Spanish and I am passionate about languages and their ability to connect people from all walks of life. I view them as bridges to understanding, and firmly believe that they enrich one's experience of the world. I have always thrived in taking exams and I do think that they are a good way to measure your abilities.

I study French and Spanish and I am passionate about languages and their ability to connect people from all walks of life. I view them as bridges to understanding, and firmly believe that they enrich one's experience of the world. I have always thrived in taking exams and I do think that they are a good way to measure your abilities. I think it is absolutely possible for all people and all learning types to excel in the exam-style system. What is important is that you find the best exam technique that works for you, and that's where I can help. I encourage vocal, enthusiastic and engaged learning with a hope to spark a genuine interest in your subject of study, as this makes revising so much easier. My tutorials will be structured around the exam syllabus you are currently studying to maintain relevant and efficient learning, whilst at the same time exploring the subject areas more broadly, to help you gain a deeper understanding of the course. Learning is about understanding, not just developing a good memory ready for the exam. Memory will be a necessary element of revision however my aim is to help you develop the tools to tackle whatever is thrown at you, whilst gaining a wider interest in your subject. I found this approach helpful during my exams, as I found remembering a large quantity of information quite difficult. The important thing is that you are enjoying what you are learning; from that I believe you will achieve your best.

About my sessions

I will structure my Online Lessons around the specific exam syllabus you are studying. Depending on the subject I will develop lesson plans centred on primarily establishing your knowledge of the course content, and then moving on to past paper material. I will measure progress initially through grammar and vocabulary tests for languages and factual tests for history and literature. Once we think you are ready, we will move on to exam style questions, so that you can develop your exam techniq...

I will structure my Online Lessons around the specific exam syllabus you are studying. Depending on the subject I will develop lesson plans centred on primarily establishing your knowledge of the course content, and then moving on to past paper material. I will measure progress initially through grammar and vocabulary tests for languages and factual tests for history and literature. Once we think you are ready, we will move on to exam style questions, so that you can develop your exam technique. Learning how to approach the exam is half the battle, and once you know what method works for you I can assure you that your results will improve. My approach was to complete most of my exam papers backwards! For me this got the big essay style questions out of the way whilst I had the most energy, and I was able to complete the easier, initial questions towards the end of the exam. That was the method that worked for me, but together we will figure out the best approach for you.
