About me

Hi there! I am in 2nd year at Newcastle University studying Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan. I have a huge love of languages and I adore being able to communicate with people from all walks of life! I have always been highly academic and enjoyed consuming knowledge, and now I'm trying to spread my love of learning further. No-one likes taking exams, but when you feel prepared enough, they can be an absolute breeze!

Hi there! I am in 2nd year at Newcastle University studying Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan. I have a huge love of languages and I adore being able to communicate with people from all walks of life! I have always been highly academic and enjoyed consuming knowledge, and now I'm trying to spread my love of learning further. No-one likes taking exams, but when you feel prepared enough, they can be an absolute breeze!

I have studied Geography all the way from GCSE to A-Level and find it a hugely fascinating subject which I love to learn more about in my free time. It's a great, applicable subject and I enjoy passing on my knowledge to those still studying it.

My interest in language stems from being able to interact and communicate with all kinds of people from all over the world. Spanish is the 2nd most spoken language in the world, which means you can reach a huge amount of people. I have been doing Portuguese for just over year, and I started Catalan in September 2019. Languages can be super hard, but are really rewarding. When I first began, I didn’t have much confidence when it came to speaking as I had a huge fear of getting things wrong. But it’s okay to make mistakes; it’s the best way to learn. I feel that my journey is reflective of a lot of language learners, with which students can relate Whether you're coming to me for help with exam prep or to learn something new, everyone is welcome here!

About my sessions

I don’t have a specific structure to my lessons as all students learn in different ways and therefore it will be necessary to tailor lessons specifically for them. However, I wish to start all my lessons with a quick recap of what we covered previously and any questions/problems that have arisen. As long as there are no issues, we can move on in the session. Obviously, content is a huge part of learning so the first part of my lesson will be learning-based, however I believe that application...

I don’t have a specific structure to my lessons as all students learn in different ways and therefore it will be necessary to tailor lessons specifically for them. However, I wish to start all my lessons with a quick recap of what we covered previously and any questions/problems that have arisen. As long as there are no issues, we can move on in the session. Obviously, content is a huge part of learning so the first part of my lesson will be learning-based, however I believe that application is what counts, so the second half of the session will be dedicated to applying the knowledge that we have learnt to practise questions scenarios. I do believe that learning should be fun, which is why I will always incorporate games and quizzes within sessions to test what we have done.

I understand that not everyone is highly academic, therefore different techniques will be necessary. Firstly, I need to identify if my student is a visual, auditory, reading/writing, or kinesthetic learner and adapt my teaching methods to that.

For me, the most important part is tailoring the classes specific to what the student wishes/needs to know. At the end of each session, I will ask if they have any requests for the next session in relation to what they are learning at school or college and hopefully tailor my next session to anything they need.
