About me

Hello!

I'm Libby, a current student of French and Spanish at the University of Oxford. I can't get enough of helping others to love learning and to achieve their goals, and it would be great to help you do the same!

From French and Spanish, to English, to University Applications, I'm friendly, approachable, and ready to help you tackle the nitty gritty of a subject and find an answer to even the trickiest of questions.

Experience

I have lots of experience in tutoring others

- I've just finished my Year Abroad, four months of which I spent teaching English to young people in Spain

- I have given workshops for young people on university life for the University of Oxford

- I have worked as a freelance flute teacher

- I have taught a Spanish club at a local secondary school

I adapt what I teach for individual needs, making exciting, creative solutions, that get students engaged in the classroom and keen to come back week after week!

How do I do it?

The way I work is all about building enthusiasm and confidence, by finding the way you work best. With these key ingredients, not only is it much easier to pass exams, but the learning process is much smoother and more memorable, much more fun, and extremely fulfilling!

I create my tutorials with only one person in mind: you. So, if you have any questions or ideas, I would love to help to develop them into a class that sticks in your memory and that you enjoy and that helps you to get where you need to be.

Don't hesitate to get in touch! I look forward to meeting you.

Questions Elizabeth (Libby) has answered

What is the difference between 'ser' and 'estar'?

Both 'ser' and 'estar' can be translated as 'to be'. So, when you need to use 'to be', you need to ask yourself a question to know which one to use:

Am I talking about the way an object is all the time (WHAT it is, the essence of it), or am I talking about the way an object is at a particular moment in time (HOW it is, the state that it is in)?

For the permanent essence of an object or person, including occupation (and for telling the time), we use SER.

For the current state of an object or person (including its location, however permanent that location may seem), we use ESTAR.

The difference between the two can be demonstrated using this example:

Ella está loca - She is acting crazily (implying that she is not actually crazy)

Ella es loca - She is crazy (implying that she is a crazy person).
