About me

2nd year Genetics student at the University of Glasgow I'm studying Genetics, which is the future of all Biology! I like to build learning from the ground up so that I have a full understanding of what's going on, I hope to do the same for my students, so that they feel comfortable enough with the subject to answer any exam questions on it. TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) I have always enjoyed teaching and interacting with people, that's why I decided to study a TEFL qualification. This enabled me to travel in Spain, where I tutored kids and gave private lessons to adults, and Italy, where I was working as a Teacher in a school over summer. The methodology of teaching doesn't change a lot between subjects, so I can apply all the ideas and experiences I've had to tutoring Biology and Spanish now.  Whenever teaching I like to find out exactly what the student needs and tailor the lesson to them. We'll spend time discussing ideas and exploring the areas which could use a little reinforcement. 2nd year Genetics student at the University of Glasgow I'm studying Genetics, which is the future of all Biology!

Questions Vance has answered

How do you use the subjunctive mood?

The subjunctive tense in Spanish can't be thought of like the other tenses (present continuous, perfect etc). It is used to reflect the mood of the speaker. In English, the subjunctive is not that common eg.

"If I were a dog"

= "Si yo fuera un perro" (adding "yo" to reinforce "I" as "fuera" is used for both first person and third person conjugations)

It refers to something hypothetical, something unsure, or something impossible. The subjunctive is often follows "que" in a sentence involving the mood. The easiest way to get to grips with the subjunctive is by learning the phrases which introduce it eg

"Espero que ...."

"Quiero que ...."

"Deseo que ...."

"Es imposible que ..."

"Lo que ..."

These are examples of when there is doubt in the statement, so we must use the subjunctive. The subjunctive is also used to express desires and statements which you are unsure about.
