About me

Hello, I’m Callum and I study French, German and Russian at Bristol University. As you can probably tell from my degree, I love languages! I’ve wanted to study languages at university ever since I did my GCSEs. I studied French and German for A-Level (achieving A* in both) and I started Russian from scratch at university. I’ve spent lots of time in both France and Germany, which has really helped me develop my language skills. I was in a class of one for German A-Level, so my German is partic...

Hello, I’m Callum and I study French, German and Russian at Bristol University. As you can probably tell from my degree, I love languages! I’ve wanted to study languages at university ever since I did my GCSEs. I studied French and German for A-Level (achieving A* in both) and I started Russian from scratch at university. I’ve spent lots of time in both France and Germany, which has really helped me develop my language skills. I was in a class of one for German A-Level, so my German is particularly strong. In fact, at the end of my first year at university I won a prize for German which is normally awarded to second year students. For French, I won prizes at the end of both my years in Sixth Form. I also took part in an exchange in the Ardeche region during my last year at school, and I regularly go to France during the holidays.

My third A-Level was an A in History, so if essay-writing is proving difficult I can help with that too. I also have a lot of teaching experience. As well as language tutoring, I’ve been a swimming teacher for the last two years, teaching people of all abilities. This means I’m well accustomed to adapting my lessons according to my pupils’ needs.

About my sessions

When we have our free initial meeting, I’ll ask you what it is in particular that you want to improve, and take it from there. I’m very flexible; all of our sessions will be based around your needs, and I’ll plan every lesson to ensure I’m giving you exactly what you want. Depending on the content, we might start the session with a quick recap of what we did in the previous one, because that kind of reinforcement is a great way to learn. The main part of the lesson can be in any format you li...

When we have our free initial meeting, I’ll ask you what it is in particular that you want to improve, and take it from there. I’m very flexible; all of our sessions will be based around your needs, and I’ll plan every lesson to ensure I’m giving you exactly what you want. Depending on the content, we might start the session with a quick recap of what we did in the previous one, because that kind of reinforcement is a great way to learn. The main part of the lesson can be in any format you like. We can chat and use the learning space to do diagrams, mind maps or anything else which works for you. I think the video chat is ideal for languages, because we can do plenty of speaking in the target language, which can only be beneficial for your speaking and listening skills. At the end of the session I’ll ask you a couple of quick questions, just to check you’ve understood everything. I will also happily create exercises which I can give you, so you can do them between our sessions and we can go through them together, if you think you would find that helpful.
