About me

Hi, I'm Maddie!


I am currently studying German and Italian at the University of Birmingham. I am in my third year and right now I'm working as a teacher in Italy! The subject I love the most though is English! I achieved full marks in my English Literature A Level in coursework and exams, so I would really like to be able to help other students out.

At university, I am a student ambassador so I give campus tours, deliver talks to students and parents, and help lecturers set up for their demonstrations regularly. Outside of university, I am a keen baker and sell cakes for birthday parties and other occasions!


I attended a very high pressure secondary school and we had to do a lot of rigorous exam training and mock tests, so I know how it feels to be under immense pressure, whilst trying to complete your university applications. I had extra tutoring before my German exams to make sure I got the grades I needed for university, so I have been through the tutoring process and would love to help other people feel more confident!

About my sessions

My lessons will be structured around what you feel you need - so in terms of languages, we can work on speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar. I will be led by the student as to how they are finding it.

In terms of English, let me know what book/play/poetry you are studying and I will make sure I have all the material ready for our sessions! I personally studied Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, Journey's End, Othello, The Merchant of Venice, Emily Dickinson poetry, William Blake poetry (Songs of Innocence) but I am very familiar with other works studied at school too.

Personally, I find it most helpful to learn by doing! So the lessons will contain plenty of activities, quiz questions and discussion about various topics to help you prepare for all the different aspects of your exams.

Following each lesson I will make notes on what we have covered and what was found more difficult - so that I can prepare exercises for the following session in order to improve those particular areas.

I hope I can use my own revision techniques such as flashcards, repetition and practise questions to help you!

I am happy for you to send me information before the lessons regarding what you would like to study and what texts you are studying for example to help us get the most out of the sessions.

Questions Maddie has answered

When should the dative case be used?

The German dative case is used under different circumstances: with specific prepositions, verbs, or with the indirect (dative) object.The prepositions which take dative in German are: aus (from), außer (except for), bei (at, near), gegenüber (opposite), mit (with), nach (after, to), seit (since, for), von (from) and zu (at). There are also some prepositions which can be used with either dative or accusative, and this is determined by whether the sentence is implying movement.Next, the indirect object is that which is affected by the verb. For example, to find the indirect object of a sentence you must ask yourself "To or for whom is the action being done?". The answer is the indriect object and therefore requires the dative case.There are also some verbs which must take the dative case, for example helfen, danken, gefallen, passen.The German dative case is used under different circumstances: with specific prepositions, verbs, or with the indirect (dative) object.The prepositions which take dative in German are: aus (from), außer (except for), bei (at, near), gegenüber (opposite), mit (with), nach (after, to), seit (since, for), von (from) and zu (at).
