About me

My name is Phoebe and I am a 3rd year French and Italian student at the University of Bath. I am currently on my year abroad in the South of France.


I started learning French at the age of 11 and I started Italian as an ab initio student at university. This means that

I have completed both GCSE and A Level French, but I have only taken university level exams in Italian. I adore both languages equally and I love especially how rewarding it is when I converse with a native speaker in their language. I

enjoy exploring the history and culture of both countries, not to mention the fantastic sights and cuisines!


I worked as an 11+ tutor for Maths and English for 3 years while still attending secondary school. I have worked both

in the classroom environment and on a one-to-one basis. As I myself have undertaken the 11+ and gained a place in a high ranking London grammar school, I understand the process and have learned from my personal experiences the best ways to help my students prepare for the exams.


I have studied trombone since the age of 12 and play an active role in the Choral and Orchestral society at university. I took up Latin and Ballroom dancing in 2016 and I enjoy competing at inter- university events such as at the home of ballroom dancing at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool! I am also a keen triathlete which is a fairly new hobby of mine, but I love being active!

About my sessions

I will prepare all of my lessons in advance and I shall tailor them to each individual student. I will base each lesson on a topic of the student's choice, perhaps a topic that they have been studying at school and do not feel 100% confident on. I am more than happy for a student to contact me during the week so that they can let me know in advance what they would like to work on that particular week.


I like to keep my lessons fairly varied in conversation topics, so that the student can engage in a wide range of vocabulary, however, it is important that a student enjoys their lessons so that they can feel comfortable in participating, so I would be happy to talk about topics that interest them.


I like to measure progress though recapping topics with the student and by going through past papers. I also measure whether a student has understood a concept or grammar point by asking them to explain it to me in a clear and coherent manner to see whether they have fully grasped the topic.


For the 11+, I have many resources from my time working as a tutor while at school, and I like to use past papers to help students understand the format of the exam they will take, focusing each lesson on a topic. I plan all of my lessons in

advance and I like to set homework based on the topic that we have covered in the lesson to go through during the recap the following week.

Questions Phoebe has answered

What is the difference between the imperfect and the perfect tense?

The perfect tense, or "passé composé" is used to demonstrate an action that is in the past and has been completed, for example "Yesterday, I went to the shop", "Hier, je suis allé(e) au magasin".However, the imperfect tense is used for 3 reasons.The first of these reasons is to for a description in the past such has, "Yesterday, it was raining", "Hier, il pleuvait". The second reason is to demonstrate an action that you used to do "When I was young I used to dance", "Quand j'étais jeune je dansais". The final reason why we use the imperfect tense is to demonstrate an incomplete or an interrupted action, for example "I was listening to music when...", "J'écoutais de la musique quand...".The perfect tense, or "passé composé" is used to demonstrate an action that is in the past and has been completed, for example "Yesterday, I went to the shop", "Hier, je suis allé(e) au magasin".However, the imperfect tense is used for 3 reasons.The first of these reasons is to for a description in the past such has, "Yesterday, it was raining", "Hier, il pleuvait".
