About me

Hi, I'm Florianne and I'm in my final year at Durham University reading for a BA in English Literature.  I'm available to tutor in English Literature, English Language, and French.  I'd also be more than happy to work on spoken and written English for ESL students. Having gone through the stressful process of university applications, I can help brainstorm and edit personal statements, general essays, and Extended Project Qualifications. 

Teaching Experience

- Tutored English Literature for SATs and GCSEs during my gap year.

- Taught French in a primary school in London and English in a primary school in Paris.

- Worked at Barracudas children's camp last summer teaching quad biking and archery.

- Volunteered at a society for autistic children and my local Brownie group.

French Experience

- A* French A-Level

- Born and lived in Paris, parents fluent in French.

- Went on a French exchange in Year 12 where I worked in a primary school.

- Lived and studied French in France for three months during my gap year, again living with a French student and immersing myself in the culture.

- In general I love France and its culture - I can be seen at breakfast at university dipping my croissant in hot chocolate or listening to French radio stations in my room!

English Literature/Language Experience

- A* English A-Level

- Apart from reading English Literature at the top University for my subject, I am Editor of the Books Section of Durham's student newspaper, Palatinate, and was Editor of my school magazine, Dux.

- Author of two 90,000-word books, with the first being considered by literary agents.

- Member of the Royal Society of Literature and winner of the Graham Landucci Prize for Exceptional Performance in English Literature.

- Interned at various media companies, including Penguin Publishing, The Daily Telegraph, NME, TvTimes and Marie Claire.

My aim during the sessions is to make them fun and personal, full of anecdotes and interesting facts to aid memory.  This is something you cannot get in classroom situations where the teacher cannot dedicate their time to one pupil. Most importantly, I'm hoping my love of and enthusiasm for my subjects will inspire my tutees, a love that can only be gained through my years of experience. Lastly, no task is too challenging, so contact me with any tutoring request...I look forwards to meeting you!

French Present Subjunctive

 

First thing to know – the subjunctive is not a tense but a mood.  So if you’re getting a bit moody struggling through the subjunctive, keep reading…

 

Regular verbs

 

The present tense subjunctive is formed by conjugating –ER, -IR, and –RE verbs into the present third person plural (‘they’ or ils), removing the ‘ent’ ending and then adding the endings (-e, -es, -e, -ions, -iez, -ent) to the stem.

 

·      For example:

To say “it is necessary that the government understand the importance of secondary education” you take the infinitive of the verb ‘understand’ (comprendre), conjugate it (compredent), make it into a subjunctive stem (comprend-) and then add the first person singular ending, ‘e’.

 

So…

Il est necessaire que* le gouvernement comprende l’importance de l’education scholaire. 

*Remember – if you’re stuck on when to the use the subjunctive, it is always placed after ‘que’.

 

·      Another example:

 

It is important that the girls finish their homework tomorrow.

Il est important que les filles finissent leurs devoirs demain. 

 

Nasty Irregulars

 

Of course, life is never that simple.  You’ve got to tackle the irregular verbs too, especially as there are many commonly used ones in the subjunctive.  The most important ones are être, avoir, faire, and aller.  Although there is a slight pattern in the subjunctive endings, as with all irregulars you just have to learn them, as the stems look quite different from the original infinitive.

 

Être: je sois, tu sois, il soit, nous soyons, vous soyez, ils soient.

Avoir: j’aie, tu aies, il ait, nous ayons, vous ayez, ils aient.

Faire: je fasse, tu fasses, il fasse, nous fassions, vous fassiez, ils fassent.

Aller: j’aille, tu ailles, il aille, nous allions, vous allies, ils aillent.
