MSci Oceanography with French (Integrated Masters) - Southampton University

About me

Recent MSci graduate in oceanography bilingually in French and English from the University of Southampton. I now work as an environmental educator and zoological field assistant around the world. I have applied experiences as a hands-on tutor, inspiring a love of sciences through science lessons to children between 11 and 17.


Having myself had a tutor in high school, I understand the amazing impact it can have on your school experience (and grades). Personalised lessons contributed to my A* French Scientific Baccalaureat average and confidence growth. I hope to instill that confidence in all of my students!


I'm a great listener and always keep work-ethic, positivity and energy levels high.

About my sessions

Every student is different. I cater to every individual student's difficulties. Unless the tutor lessons are generalised throughout the term I ask the student to explain what aspects of the subject they need to better in advance so we can work on them as efficiently as possible.


My Online Lessons each start with an end goal for the session. We achieve that goal with carefully organized, positive exercices and lessons. I'm very positive and focused on the end goal: acing the subject!

Questions Olivia has answered

I can never think of anything to write during French Creative writing exams, what can I do?

Always remember that although the exam title has the word 'Creative' in it, it is still an exam and the examinator wants you to show off what you know. Preparation and simplicity is the key. Depending on the number of words you have to write, make a mental checklist of things you want to 'show off': You're comfortable with the basics, and know how to conjugate the present/ past tense. You know adjectives, verbs and nouns belonging to the category You have covered a number of different subjects in french this year, find ways to include variations of verbs and adjectives(and for those last few points, why not find a couple of interesting terms that will help you stand out from the crowd!)Once you've established the basics of your creative writing, remember to answer the question and keep it simple. We can practice by asking some sample questions out loud and focus on organizing that thought process down on paper.Always remember that although the exam title has the word 'Creative' in it, it is still an exam and the examinator wants you to show off what you know.
