About me

Hi, my name is Tom. I am Modern Languages & Cultures Student at Durham University. In particular, I study French & Spanish and their respective cultures. I absolutely love both languages, having been learning them now for more than 5 years each. Studying at such a prestigious university, my grammatical knowledge in these two languages is of a particularly high standard, and as this is the one thing most language-learners struggle with, I am really well-placed to help my tutees achieve...

Hi, my name is Tom. I am Modern Languages & Cultures Student at Durham University. In particular, I study French & Spanish and their respective cultures. I absolutely love both languages, having been learning them now for more than 5 years each. Studying at such a prestigious university, my grammatical knowledge in these two languages is of a particularly high standard, and as this is the one thing most language-learners struggle with, I am really well-placed to help my tutees achieve everything they are capable of in these languages. The nature of my schedule means I am available to offer sessions in the late-afternoons/evenings and the weekends: perfect to school children. I am very much adaptable to the student and always seek to get an understanding of the problem areas and then I gear my teaching and sessions to the needs of the pupil, I am also always happy to mark work/past papers between sessions to really provide for that student.

About my sessions

After gauging the needs of the student, I always try to structure together a plan that will focus on such individual needs, along with adapting my teaching style to best suit the tutee. The usual structure of my tutor sessions is to explain and go through a concept, be it a complicated piece of grammar or a theme in a piece of literature, and then work through some practical applications of such concept. For the next session I sometimes (if needed) ask the student to have another go at some p...

After gauging the needs of the student, I always try to structure together a plan that will focus on such individual needs, along with adapting my teaching style to best suit the tutee. The usual structure of my tutor sessions is to explain and go through a concept, be it a complicated piece of grammar or a theme in a piece of literature, and then work through some practical applications of such concept. For the next session I sometimes (if needed) ask the student to have another go at some practice independently that we will then look through at the start of the next session. If the student it preparing for a particular set of exams, be that GCSE or A-Level or other, I am happy to mark attempted past papers and dedicate sessions to going through the mistakes and helping the student to understand not only what the correct answer is, but also to help the student understand why it was wrong, as this is how students learn best. As ever though, I am completely happy to tailor my sessions to what the student feels they need to work on.
