About me

ABOUT ME: Hello! My name is Carla, I was born and raised in Barcelona, Spain. I believe my enthusiastic and friendly character is the quintessential representation of my cultural background.    I am currently a second year student at the University of Warwick, studying International Management. In 2014 I obtained my IB bilingual Diploma (Spanish-English), I was pleased to obtain a score of 45/45. I was so passionate about all of my IB subjects that I became a true enquirer. This is why I want to teach these subjects to my students in a way that they enjoy them as much as I did. Spanish and Catalan are my native languages, although I am also fluent in English. I also have an advanced level of French and a beginners level of Italian. I have experienced the struggle of learning languages through my whole life. Thus, I am aware that a textbook will never teach you the skills and knowledge as good as a native speaker. HOW CAN I HELP I have recently gone through the IB myself, I know how tough it can be. However, I also know exactly what it is expected from you, how they want the assignments, what you need to study and the best way to achieve top grades. I am pleased to share all of this with you! My previous experience includes: - tutoring an IB student - tutoring children - teaching English to a middle school teacher - giving English speaking lessons to a business executive - translating documents to various languages My students have ranged from the age of fifty to the age of six. This has made me become highly flexible and patient.   MY APPROACH The sessions will be pre-planned and tailored to your needs. We will go through the syllabus together, focusing on the topics you struggle with. I will provide you with exercises and past papers for you to practise, and notes for you to study. I will guide you with both, your Internal and External Assessments. We will work on the key skills you need to succeed. If you decide to pick a language, we will practise your speaking and listening during the sessions. However, if you are happy to, I will also ask you to do some readings and writings so that you can improve all of your skills. I assure you that we will go beyond the IB requirements. I will make sure you do not just learn a language, but you understand a whole culture!

How do I apply motivation theories in essay-based exam questions?

The IB is all about critical thinking. You will never score top marks unless you see beyond a problem. Learning theories by hard will lead you nowhere.

It is very common to see essay questions, both in Paper 1 and 2, based on the topic of Human ResourcesHow should you approach them?

a) Read the case study and analyse the relationship between the employer and the employee.

The employer believes that the employee cannot do complex tasks? (TAYLOR) Does the employee receive a salary, good conditions, vacations? (HERZBERG), Does the employee give as much as he or she gets in turn? (ADAMS).

b) You have to draw on the syllabus to evidence your arguments. These are examples of situations you could find:

TAYLOR’s Scientific Management 
(sounds rough today, yet the theory traces back to 1911)
- The employer views the employees as brainless machines
- Complex activities are broken down into simple tasks
- Employees are matched to the activities that they can best perform, and they are constantly monitored
- Employers believe that only financial rewards will motivate their employees

HERZBERG’s Two-Factor Theory
- Hygiene factors are not motivators themselves, but if they are absent, they create dissatisfaction. E.g. health insurance
- Motivators are factors that motivate when they are present, yet their absence does not create dissatisfaction. E.g. recognition of achievements, responsibility, challenging work…

ADAMS’ Equity Theory
- The workplace should follow a "give and take" basis
- There has to be a balance between what the employee gives (effort, time, knowledge…) and what he or she received in return (money, recognition…)
- An inequity will lead to a conflict. Inequities can be real or perceived. E.g. if an employee puts much more effort than his colleague and they both earn the same.

c) Once you have found the motivation theory that applies to the case, you have to resolve the conflict. Some examples of how to approach this are shown below:

TAYLOR’s Scientific Management
- Give more freedom to employees, trust them more
- Assign them more complex tasks so that they feel valued
- Reward creativity and imagination
- Provide non-financial motivators as well

HERZBERG’s Two-Factor Theory
- Make sure the Hygiene Factors are present
- Try your best to provide Motivators too
- Give a try to Non-Financial Rewards: job enrichment, rotation, teamwork…

ADAMS’ Equity Theory
- Establish good communication channels between employer and employee
- Make sure there is a common ground, so that they are both aware of each other's expectations
- Make sure there is continuous feedback so that the employee can express the way he or she feels

¿Cómo conjugar un verbo en español? (How to conjugate a verb in Spanish?)

In Spanish we classify verbs (in infinitive mode) into 3 different categories: 1. PRIMERA CONJUGACIÓN: verbs ended in –AR Cantar (sing), Amar (love), Buscar (search), Jugar (play) 2. SEGUNDA CONJUGACIÓN: verbs ended in –ER Temer (fear), Correr (run), Beber (drink), Traer (bring) 3. TERCERA...

In Spanish we classify verbs (in infinitive mode) into 3 different categories:

1. PRIMERA CONJUGACIÓN: verbs ended in –AR
Cantar (sing), Amar (love), Buscar (search), Jugar (play)

2. SEGUNDA CONJUGACIÓN: verbs ended in –ER
Temer (fear), Correr (run), Beber (drink), Traer (bring)

3. TERCERA CONJUGACIÓN: verbs ended in -IR
Servir (serve), Vivir (live), Reír (laugh), Compartir (share)

Within each category we have both REGULAR and IRREGULAR verbs. Just as in English, all REGULAR verbs are conjugated in the exact same way. However, IRREGULAR verbs follow a random structure. The best way to learn how to conjugate IRREGULAR verbs is by practising, through reading and speaking!

Let’s see some examples:
Yo Canto, Amo, Busco, Juego
Tú Cantas, Amas, Buscas, Juegas
Él Canta, Ama, Busca, Juega
Nosotros Cantamos, Amamos, Buscamos, Jugamos
Vosotros Cantáis, Amáis, Buscáis, Jugáis
Ellos Cantan, Aman, Buscan, Juegan

E.g. Estar (to be)
Yo Estoy
Tú Estás
Él Está
Nosotros Estamos
Vosotros Estáis
Ellos Están

Yo Temo, Corro, Bebo, Traigo
Tú Temes, Corres, Bebes, Traes
Él Teme, Corre, Bebe, Trae
Nosotros Tememos, Corremos, Bebemos, Traemos
Vosotros Teméis, Corréis, Bebéis, Traéis
Ellos Temen, Corren, Beben, Traen

E.g. Ser (to be)
Yo Soy
Tú Eres
Él Es
Nosotros Somos
Vosotros Sois
Ellos Son

Yo Sirvo, Vivo, Rio, Comparto
Tú Sirves, Vives, Ríes, Compartes
Él Sirve, Vive, Ríe, Comparte
Nosotros Servimos, Vivimos, Reímos, Compartimos
Vosotros  Servís, Vivís, Reís, Compartís
Ellos Sirven, Viven, Ríen, Comparten

E.g. Ir (go)
Yo Voy
Tú Vas
Él Va
Nosotros Vamos
Vosotros Vais
Ellos Van
