I am currently studying my first year of psychology at the University of Bath. I have a lengthy background in French and apply it on a daily basis. I love being able to help others learn another language as well as learn about another culture and hope that this will come across in my sessions with you.
I have past experience in regular tutoring of French but in my experience achievement can only be attained through basic understanding of any concept – I like to start at the beginning (routes of terms, grammar etc.) before rushing into any exam questions. This means anything that you’re uncertain of can be tackled and resolved ready to get the results we’re aiming for – but only if we work together! You will guide the sessions – let me know in advance what you want to cover and I will tailor a session specifically to help improve that area, this can include speaking, reading, listening and writing. French is a beautiful language and I hope that this will come across in our sessions together.
As for psychology, I absolutely love all things psychology. Looking into the mind and behaviour is fascinating and, although it doesn’t sound it, research methods can be interesting! I can help to advise ways to write good essays in your exams as well as help you understand and recall the many studies needed to support and challenge the theories.
I hope to make these sessions with you interesting and fun to increase your learning experience so at the end of the session please let me know what I can do to improve things for you.
Hope to see you soon!

Really go for it - it may sound silly but imagine that you are French and feel confident when speaking. Try and talk as much as you can - have a conversation with yourself! This will also help your vocabulary and your grammar.
Another option is to immerse yourself in French audio. Listen to the radio, listen to songs, watch French films etc.see more
IDAs are issues, debates and approaches in psychology.
A good way to include them is to begin a paragraph by discussing the IDA that links appropriately to your question/subject. Then you can bring in a study. This will help show your understanding of that issue/debate/approach and will link nicely!
You can also do it the other way round - start with your study (AO2) and then show how that links to the IDA.see more
In my experience repetition is the best. Don't just practice from English to French - switch it up and practice French to English too!
If you're really struggling then try mental imagery - for example, une pomme is an apple - imagine a pomeranian terrier eating an apple. Mental imagery has high recall!see more
