About me

Hi!


I am a 19 year old student studying Politics, International Studies and French at the University of Warwick.


I would love to help improve your language skills, your knowledge of politics and understanding of history. I have been a French mentor before, and am incredibly passionate about the French language. Having traveled extensively around -France, the French-speaking regions of Switzerland and undertaking a French degree, I am keen to help younger students increase their confidence. Tutorials would involve all aspects of language; Reading, writing, speaking, listening and of course...grammar!


Moreover, I am probably one of the only tutors out there for Politics. I passes my Alevel Politics with 100% at AS, and am currently doing my degree in Politics and International Studies. My passion for current affairs, and sound knowledge of governmental processes means that I can confidently explain the British parliamentary system, the veto system in the US, and voting systems, to name a few!


Linking to this, my third Alevel subject, and indeed passion, was History! How can we understand the world if we do not understand the past? Politics and history are always linked. My areas of expertise in History include; Nazi Germany, the Cold War, the Middle East, Britain from 1945-70, Apartheid and the Early-Tudor period.

Questions Emily has answered

When should I use the imperfect tense in French?

The imperfect tense ('l'imparfait) is used to describe events which took place in the past. However, so is the perfect tense...So what makes the imperfect different? The imperfect tense;Past events Habitual events (used to in English, something you did regularly) Uncompleted events, they are still going on When there is no specific time phrases, we don't know exactly when the vent started or endedExamples;Je finissais mon livre Nous jouions au foot quand nous étions plus jeunesFact;In English, the imperfect is also known as the 'continuous'. This should help you remember the different between the imperfect and perfect tenses. Extension Work:How is the imperfect tense formed?Take the stem of a verb (the present tense 'nous' form of the verb and remove the 'ons')Add the following endings; -ais, -ais, -ait, -ions, -iez, -aient The imperfect tense ('l'imparfait) is used to describe events which took place in the past.
