About me

Hi! I’m Caroline, and I study French and Russian at the University of Cambridge. I have just finished my second year, where I studied early Soviet culture (with a particular emphasis on the influence of traditional folk theatre and its iconoclastic potential) and eighteenth and nineteenth-century French literature. As of the the end of the 2019 academic year, I have delivered 18 tutoring sessions to both GCSE and A Level students.

Hi! I’m Caroline, and I study French and Russian at the University of Cambridge. I have just finished my second year, where I studied early Soviet culture (with a particular emphasis on the influence of traditional folk theatre and its iconoclastic potential) and eighteenth and nineteenth-century French literature. As of the the end of the 2019 academic year, I have delivered 18 tutoring sessions to both GCSE and A Level students.


In my tutor sessions, I hope to increase not only your understanding of whatever aspect of French language or culture you wish to study, but also your enjoyment of it. One of the main advantages of a one-on-one tutor session as opposed to group lessons is that each session can be highly personalised and interactive, focusing on what you want to learn about and giving you plenty of opportunity to discuss, ask questions, and practise.


For that reason, I am willing to tutor you in whatever part of your French study that you desire, whether that be the language (grammar help, speaking practice, written expression) or the culture (discussion of set texts, aspects of modern French society, advice on essay writing) etc. Or perhaps both!


I am also able to give tips and advice on writing a personal statement that will enable you to convey your interest in your chosen course effectively to university admissions, so if that is something you are interested in, get in touch!

About my sessions

The way that I structure my tutor sessions will depend on what you aim to achieve in each session; for that reason, I will ask you to propose a few things that you are interested in receiving help in (perhaps at the end of our Free Video Meeting) and I will then be able to plan a lesson around those areas. Depending on the topic, I might ask you to do a bit of preparation for the session so that we can get the most out of it together. You should feel free to ask as many questions as you like...

Depending on the topic, I might ask you to do a bit of preparation for the session so that we can get the most out of it together. You should feel free to ask as many questions as you like during our time together as this will be beneficial to your learning - and don't worry, as I am very patient!
