About me

Hi! I'm Cathy and I study German and Spanish at Durham. Offering these subjects up to A-Level although I can also give advice on personal statements if necessary. I feel like student to student tutoring is an incredibly worthwhile and rewarding experience as I feel really passionate about helping with and cultivating the study of languages. While studying in sixth form I assisted younger students with their homework on many occasions although I feel even more excited about working on a subject I truly love! Of course with languages studying spelling and grammar is important but I hope to make the process more engaging through using online resources and recommending foreign films for further immersion in the language. Having studied English Literature and History at A-Level I can also help with essay writing as I know this can be a struggle. Looking forward to hearing from you and getting started!

In Spanish there are four main ways in which the subjunctive is used.

1. Formation of the negative imperative and the formal positive imperative

The exception here is no creer que

2. In subordinate clauses introduced by que

In this instance there are certain expressions and verbs which require a following subjunctive. These are:

a) After expressions which indicate possibility, such as es probable que

b) After expressions and verbs that express an emotion, such as querer or es una pena

c) After expressions and verbs that indicate necessity, influence or requests, such as es importante que or pedir

d) After verbs which indicate something is allowed or forbidden, such as dejar or prohibir

e) After verbs which involve thinking or saying BUT in the negative, such as no creer or no parecer

3. After conjunctions

The subjunctive in this case is generally used with conjunctions of time and purpose:

a) Time conjunctions-cuando, hasta que, en cuanto, mientras

BUT only use the subjunctive if the tense communicated after is in the future

ALSO if cuando is used in a question use the indicative

b) Purpose conjunctions-para que

4. In main clauses

The subjunctive is used mainly after perhaps EXCEPT for a lo mejor
