About me

I am currently studying Spanish, French and Arabic at the University of St. Andrews. I thoroughly enjoy the literary, cultural and historical components of my subjects as they have opened up new aspects of the languages I study.

 

I have been exposed to the Spanish language from a very young age, as many of my family members are native Spanish speakers, so I have developed a real passion for the language and its importance as a global modern dialect. Despite my background knowledg...

I am currently studying Spanish, French and Arabic at the University of St. Andrews. I thoroughly enjoy the literary, cultural and historical components of my subjects as they have opened up new aspects of the languages I study.

 

I have been exposed to the Spanish language from a very young age, as many of my family members are native Spanish speakers, so I have developed a real passion for the language and its importance as a global modern dialect. Despite my background knowledge of Spanish, I have worked hard to master grammatical areas and complex vocabulary so I understand, from a pupil’s perspective, the complications involved in learning a language. Preparing for language exams is sometimes a daunting prospect however pupils must see it as an opportunity to build confidence in their work so as to feel reassured for exams or when in a Spanish speaking environment. I am very patient and I hope to inspire the pupils I teach so as to develop not only a stronger understanding of the language but also the colloquial and idiomatic elements that make a language exciting and inspiring.

 

Aside from my studies at university I enjoy Athletics and I am currently the captain of the university team, a role that has enabled me to develop my leadership qualities whilst helping my fellow athletes to achieve and reach their potential.

About my sessions

 During my time at school studying for my GCSE’s I found that focusing on smaller details was the most effective way in which the wider scope of my learning could be mastered. Thus, I responded well to those teachers who took the time to explain smaller aspects of my learning, something that I wish to mirror within my own teaching.

 During my time at school studying for my GCSE’s I found that focusing on smaller details was the most effective way in which the wider scope of my learning could be mastered. Thus, I responded well to those teachers who took the time to explain smaller aspects of my learning, something that I wish to mirror within my own teaching.

 

I will structure my lessons by opening with some spoken Spanish for a few minutes to warm the pupil up and then address the questions the pupil has for that day’s session. My sessions will be tailored so as to incorporate each individuals style of learning, something that over the years I have seen to be incredibly beneficial in building confidence in a pupil’s work. This approach also establishes a personal flair in a pupil’s work.

 

I am also a firm believer in focused practice and immersion when it comes to learning a language especially when cultural and colloquial elements of the language, that reinforce a more native approach to both written and spoken work, are included.

 

Within my tutoring sessions I like to adopt a very positive and lively atmosphere so as to assure my pupils that each question or query they have is something of importance and essential to improving their Spanish.
