About me

Hi there! I'm Amy and I study German and Italian at the University of Bristol, and I absolutely love it. I study how the languages work, and also the cultural elements which includes the history, culture, and (my personal favourite) literature of the countries. Being able to communicate with and understand people from different countries and cultures excites me.

Hi there! I'm Amy and I study German and Italian at the University of Bristol, and I absolutely love it. I study how the languages work, and also the cultural elements which includes the history, culture, and (my personal favourite) literature of the countries. Being able to communicate with and understand people from different countries and cultures excites me.

A few years ago I never would have imaged studying languages at uni. But with some inspiring teachers and a lot of perseverance and determination, I've found myself here in Bristol, in the whirlwind of university life.

Outside of studying, I'm part of the University athletics and cross country club and do various volunteering opportunities in the city, and go to as many live music gigs as possible.

Hopefully I can share with you my passion for language and literature, and help you to achieve your goals. Take it from me, although exams are tough, you are tougher!

About my sessions

My sessions will usually be based around what I know works for me. Often, I'll explain something, and try to make it as memorable as possible (anecdotes usually work, the sillier the better), then we'll try and put what we've learnt into practice. I find that it's really important to know how what your learning fits into the wider context of real life. I'll use a mix of audio (speaking to you) and visual (writing, drawings, diagrams, mind maps) methods- the more senses eng...

I find that it's really important to know how what your learning fits into the wider context of real life. I'll use a mix of audio (speaking to you) and visual (writing, drawings, diagrams, mind maps) methods- the more senses engaged, the more likely you are to understand and remember something. I'll pay particular attention to questions you have and elements you struggle with to help you improve.
