About me

Hi! I'm Maddy and I study French and Spanish at Durham University. I'm currently in Chile working at an oil and gas company for the second half of my year abroad.

I love languages because they allow me to travel and discover all sorts of things about different cultures. It's great to have the chance to speak to people I might never have spoken to due to language barriers.

Aside from studying, I love singing and am part of the a cappella group at Durham University. We release songs on Spotify and record music videos, which is a lot of fun. I also play football for the University team here in France, which gives me the opportunity to practise both my French and my football (the latter of which needs a lot of work!)

About my sessions

I really enjoy teaching French and Spanish, and have experience tutoring GCSE students, helping them to achieve grades to be proud of.

I will begin each lesson briefly going over what was covered in the previous session, focusing on key vocabulary and grammatical structures. I will encourage the students to create revision cards on which they can write 5 to 10 phrases relevant to each topic, and I will test them on these phrases to make sure they have been retained.

I really enjoy teaching French and Spanish, and have experience tutoring GCSE students, helping them to achieve grades to be proud of.

I will begin each lesson briefly going over what was covered in the previous session, focusing on key vocabulary and grammatical structures. I will encourage the students to create revision cards on which they can write 5 to 10 phrases relevant to each topic, and I will test them on these phrases to make sure they have been retained. I have found this to be a very effective way of cementing knowledge, and building up a reserve of key phrases that can be applied to any exam question. This will also allow us to measure progress, and note which areas need work.

I think it is important not to do too much at once, and not to overwhelm the student. I will focus each session on a particular area that the student might be struggling with, and make sure that this is understood before moving on to the next topic.
