About me

About me

I am a French and Spanish student at the University of Bristol. I've always had a passion for learning languages, which I hope to bring out in you too! Also, I am a very calm, logic-driven person, which I can use to help you with mathmatical and grammar rules alike.

I have worked with kids as young as 8 years old in my experience as a cub scout leader, so I am very understanding and approachable. Also, I have taught English to student in Cambodia so I have many techniques for developing language skills that I can pass on to you. Finally, I have travelled a lot in Spanish-speaking and French-speaking countries all around the world, so I can help you succeed in your language practice by applying it to the real world.

The sessions

The main thing you need to know is that the sessions will all be guided by you! Having successfully gotten through my GCSEs and A-Levels myself, I can help you with a wide range of problems - from pronounciation to grammar, from trigonometry to averages - using my own experience.

Finally, I want the sessions to be enjoyable! I have a fun enthusiasm for learning that I can bring out in you as well during the 55 minute sessions and beyond.

Any questions?

If you have questions, you can send me a message - 'WebMail' or book a session to meet me 'Meet the Tutor Session' (available through this website). Don't forget to tell me your exam board and what in particular you need help with.

Thank you for reading, I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Owen has answered

In what situations do I use the subjunctive?

The use of the subjunctive can be quite daunting in Spanish, as there is no real equivalent in English. In general, it is used in situations of possibility or uncertainty, and is always directly preceeded by 'que'. The following acronym can help you remember its most common uses: W wish eg: ...

The use of the subjunctive can be quite daunting in Spanish, as there is no real equivalent in English. In general, it is used in situations of possibility or uncertainty, and is always directly preceeded by 'que'. The following acronym can help you remember its most common uses:

wish

eg: mi madre quiere que yo limpie mi cuarto

emotion

eg: me alegre que vengan a la fiesta

impersonal expressions - Note: only in positions of uncertainty, so with 'es posible que', but not with 'es verdad que'

eg: es necesario que coma bastante

recomendation/regret

eg: se recomendo que haga ejercicio dos veces cada semana

doubt

eg: dudo que sea verdad

ojala que (if only, I hope)

eg: ojala que podamos ir a vacaciones esta fin de semana

Which preposition do I use with countries?

The use of prepositions to say you are 'in' a country is actually quite simple in French. Your two options are 'en'  (which is more common) and 'au'. 'Au' is used with masculine countries that begin with a consonant. example: mon frère va au Pakistan 'En' is used with feminine countries.....

The use of prepositions to say you are 'in' a country is actually quite simple in French. Your two options are 'en'  (which is more common) and 'au'.

'Au' is used with masculine countries that begin with a consonant.

example: mon frère va au Pakistan

'En' is used with feminine countries...

example: nous sommes en France

...and masculine countries that begin with a vowel.

example: je vais en Afghansitan.

As long as you know the gender of the country (unless it starts with a vowel, in which case you don't even need the gender to determine the preposition), finding the right preposition is easy!

To summarise:

masc consonant: au

fem/masc vowel: en

Reminder: names of towns ALL use the preposition 'à' (no matter what the gender)

example: je vais à Paris.
