About me

I have been a tutor with mytutor for two years now and I love it! I am currently on my year abroad working in Germany but am keen to tutor people at the weekends as well as when I am back for Christmas and January, before I move to Paris for the second half of the year. I love all areas of German language and culture, as well as France and I am excited to start living in Paris as of February 2018.

Living in Germany has definitely given me a new perspective on language learning and made me keen to help others as it can be daunting at any stage when it comes to speaking especially. I have experience in tutoring people for both German and French and find that one on one sessions, even if just one or two are needed to clarify a grammar point, are invaluable. 

Exams can be very daunting and can be very stressful, but I find having a tutor really helps clarify the little problems, as well as improve your language level on the whole, or perfect an area like essay writing which can be hard without one on one attention.

Please feel free to send me a message if you think a tutorial could benefit you, I look forward to hearing from you! :)

About my sessions

Although I plan the lessons in advance and make them as interactive an interesting as possible, the content will mainly be driven by you, so you will decide what we cover and if you need more time on one point, we can do several sessions on it etc. I am also flexible and if something comes up during or just before a lesson we can of course prioritise that!

Whether it's a range of skills that need to be practised (speaking, reading, grammar) or one specific topic, the sessions can be designed specifically around your needs. I know in particular speaking in a foreign language one on one and not with a teacher at school can hugely increase confidence and is something I wish I had when I did my GCSE/ A Level exams.

Questions Zoe has answered

How do I know when to use the subjunctive?

The subjunctive mood is a very useful (and impressive!) tense to use when writing and speaking and it enables you to express yourself in many more ways, but it is difficult sometimes to get your head around and remember when it is essential to use it! The main concepts that the subjunctive expresses are doubt, a wish and emotions.

There are certain expressions such as bien que (although); quoique (even though) and pour que (so that); which just need to be learned so that when it comes to using them you know that they must be followed by the subjunctive.

Other set expressions are also followed by the subjunctive which do also just need to be learned, however when using them or if you come across one you can usually determine from the meaning whether it should take the subjunctive. For example " il est possible que" is followed by the subjunctive whereas "il est certain que" is followed by the imperative. This is because "possible" expressed doubt and therefore must take the subjunctive, but "certain" implies certainty and therefore is followed by the imperative. 

The subjunctive is a large and complex part of French grammar to tackle but once you know when and how it must be used then it starts to become less daunting to use!

How do I know whether a verb takes haben or sein in the perfect tense?

Haben and sein are used as the auxiliary verbs in the perfect tense before the past participle. Whether you need haben or sein depends on the meaning of the verb you are putting into the perfect tense.  Most verbs will take haben, but there are lots of verbs which take sein. These are verbs of:

Movement- for example gehen, fahren and fallen. " Sie IST nach Berlin gefahren."

A change of state- for example einschlafen (to fall asleep) which describes the change of one state to another.

Exceptions such as sein and bleiben (to be and to stay.) These do not fit into a clear cut category, unfortunately they simply have to be learned so that you know they take sein in the perfect tense:

"Ich bin in der Schule gewesen" (I was in school)

"Wir sind zu Hause geblieben" (we stayed at home)
