I am a third year Psychology student at Bristol University. I have always loved languages and psychology and I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do!
I have had a lot of experience tutoring, as I was a Peer Mentor in my second year of University which involved helping first year Psychology students with any questions they had about the course and giving them tips. I have also helped my mother who is a teacher in her classroom as well as tutoring other pupils while I was at highschool in France.
I am fluent in French and have studied German for seven years and I am in my third year of Psychology!
The sessions are all about what you need. You can decide what topics we cover and I will do my best to help you with every aspect that I possibly can!
I will try to teach things in different ways, if you work better with visual guides, we can focus our sessions around that, if you work better with audio cues, I can do that as well. What you need I can do!
Even if you just want to talk to me in French or German for 55 minutes I am happy to do that if you want to improve your conversational skills
How to contact me:
If you have any questions or would like to meet me, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Let me know what you would like to focus on and who your exam board is! I look forward to hearing from you!

Comparatives are a form of adjective used, as the name indicates, to comparing one thing to another. They are formed by adding -er on the end of the adjective. For example freundlich (friendly) becomes freundlicher (friendlier).
Superlatives are a form of adjective used when highlighting an aspect of something. They are formed by adding -ste on to the end of the adjective. For example, schön (pretty) becomes schönste (the prettiest).see more
In French, they are three groups of verbs, verbs that end in -er (eg manger), verbs that end in -ir (finir), and verbs that end in -re, -oir, or -ir (faire, pouvoir, or devenir). The verb endings are the same for all verb groups in the simple future tense: ai, as, a, ons, ez, ont.
In general, in the first and second group, you just add that ending onto the verb when it is not conjugated, for example, je mangerai plus tard.
There are some exceptions in the first group with verbs ending with -yer, -eler and -eter.
In the third group, the future is almost as easy: you add on the verb endings, however, as always there are some exceptions. Verbs ending with a -e for example rire lose that 'e' when it is conjugated in the future tense, for example il rira (he will laugh).
Some verbs ending in -ir in the third group lose their 'i' and there are also some changes to the future tense for verbs such as etre, avoir and aller.see more
Structured interviews are used in psychology when carrying out interviews where the questions are predetermined and in a certain order. The order and structure never changes for any participant.
The advantages to structured interviews is that because the questions are put to all participants in the same way, it is more generalisable accross the study. However, it does mean that participants often do not divulge or reveal as much because of the strict design.
Unstructured interviews are more about what the participant feels is relevant. There are questions to prompt the participant and to help them stay on topic however participants can talk as much as they like about a certain area of that topic.
The advantages to unstructured interviews are that they focus on what is relevant to the participant as they are more open to express their own opinion rather than sticking to answering very limited questions. This can however be disadvantageous as not all participants will be treated in the same way and the data is likely to be more difficult to analyse as it will be more varied.see more
