About me

About me

I am an International Business with Spanish student at the University of Edinburgh, currently on my year abroad studying at ESADE Business School in Barcelona. With a French mother and an English father I have been raised in a bilingual household and I have developed a strong passion for languages, one that I hope I can share with you.


I am very friendly and patient. As well as having volunteered for the Brownies in my local area, I have regularly helped students as young as 5 with their homework while babysitting since I turned 15. Such activities have provided me with plenty of experience working with young people and have improved my teaching abilities. Moreover, during my time in Barcelona I have regularly attended language exchanges, helping individuals of all levels to improve their English and French skills.

The Sessions:


I have completed a number of language courses and exams and from my experience, the best way to improve your language skills is through a good balance of speaking, listening and grammar exercises. The sessions will be developed around your needs and requirements, helping you to overcome any weaknesses and build your confidence through practice. For example, an emphasis can be placed on speaking as for me this is the best way to learn and build confidence in speaking the language once the basics have been covered. In my opinion there is no such thing as a stupid question and I will do my upmost best to clear your doubts and prepare you for your exam!  

During each session I will use a variety of interactive teaching methods and will adapt these according to your preferences. Above all I will work to make sure that each class is productive and fun!

Einstein once noted that "you don't really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother” and hopefully after a few sessions your family and friends will be just as clued up as you! 

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you! À bientôt! ¡Hasta pronto!

Questions Adele has answered

In which case would I use the verb SER and in which case would i use the verb ESTAR when talking about someone's profession?

The verb ESTAR is used when the job is considered temporary or relatively unimportant to the person undertaking it.

-Mi prima va a estar de camarera en un restaurante todo el verano.

-My cousin will work as a waitress in a restaurant during the entire summer.

In this case it is clear that for the speaker's cousin, this is only a temporary job for the length of the summer. 

On the other hand when you are simply referring someone to someone's everyday profession you would use the verb SER, reflecting the permanent nature of the job. 

-Mi padre es abogado (My father is a lawyer).

-Soy estudiante (I am a student).
