Degree: BA Spanish and Portuguese (Bachelors) - Southampton University
Who am I?
Hi! I'm Katie, a final year BA Spanish and Portuguese student at the University of Southampton, and I'd love to help you or your child with their Spanish or Portuguese.
Having studied Spanish since the age of 14 and fallen in love with it, I decided to take up Portuguese at university 3 years ago. I spent my year abroad in Brazil, improving both my Spanish and Portuguese as I was working in tourism, and have travelled widely in South America. This means I'm familiar with all varieties of Spanish and Portuguese, although my focuses are traditional Castillian Spanish (taught at schools in the UK) and Brazilian Portuguese.
As well as being a private GCSE Level Spanish Tutor in my second year, I was a water sports instructor on my year abroad and a karate instructor between the ages of 13 and 19 and so have had experience teaching all ages and all nationalities, and know how to keep my sessions interesting!
How can I help?
Having been through the process myself at GCSE and A Level Spanish, and picking up Portuguese at university, I've experienced lots of different teaching methods and know what it takes to excell in those all important exams.
As well as doing well in exams, I like to focus on building people's confidence in a language, as a bit of confidence goes an extremely long way. I like to build informal conversation into all of my sessions so that tutees can build the vocabulary they will need when visiting a Spanish or Portuguese speaking country.
I believe that language learning should be fun, and think that music, videos and games are excellent ways to learn important language skills!
Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to languages, so let me guide you through the tricky parts and show you where your strengths lie!
