About me

About me

I'm a first year Physics and Philosophy student at the University of Bristol. I was born and raised in Spain (I'm a weird mixture of Spanish and German!), but as I attended an international school, I am fluent in not only Spanish, but English and German. I think that this clearly shows that although a scientist at heart, I love languages! 

My passion for knowledge has lead to me not only wanting to adquire it, but to share it with others, so since a very young age I've been helping out younger students and fellow classmates. In addition I've worked at a Summer Camp in Switzerland as a teaching assistant, which has given me a great experience when teaching children of all ages. 

Not everyone learns in the same way, so I will adjust my teaching style to the student's needs.

What next??

Please do not hesitate and contact me if you have any questions. This can either be done by messaging me or by booking a "Meet the Tutor" session. Please do let me know what exam board you are on and your subject of study if you want Personal Statement mentoring, as well as what you are having difficulties with!.

About my sessions

How will a typical tutorial be?

Spanish tutorials: I will first try to initiate small talk to get you prepared for the session, then we will focus on the problems that the student has faced or wants to discuss and then I'll either base the tutorial on material adequately tailored for the level of teaching (ie. for IB/A level it will be based on exam technique and exam material). Towards the end there'll be a short Q&A session and some recap of the new material. 

Biology tutorials: depend on the topics that the student struggles with. Of course there'll be time for plenty of preparation to set up a good exam technique. Also, Q&A and recap sessions at the end are a MUST!!

Physics tutorials:  focused on the topics that the student struggles with and on exam technique, as well as problem solving.

Maths tutorials: With very advanced students that only look to boost their grades, I will mainly focus on the types of problems they struggle with and what they don't fully grasp. However, if the student is not comfortable with the subject we will build from the basics and go over the syllabus until a good level of expertise is reached. 

Personal Statement mentoring will be very dependent on the stage and subject at which the student is. However, no matter what, I can guarantee great results

Questions Cristina has answered

Can you form a sentence using the conditional tense?

Example: Si ella trae dados tendríamos que jugar al monopoly.

Translation: If she brought dice we'd have to play monopoly.

In spanish the conditional tense is conjugated by adding -ía,-ías,-íamos,íais, ían to the end of verbs.

Should I start my Personal Statement with "Since an early age/Since I was a Child"?

Yes and no. Although this a very easy and convenient way of starting a personal statement, it is also an extremely overused starting phrase, it will mean that admissions tutors will be less prone to find your personal statement remarkably original. However if the rest of the content is great they might overlook it. Overall I'd say that it is better to avoid starting personal statements like that.
