I am a Linguistics student at the University of York. I have always had a real passion and love for language and hope that my tutorials will instill that love in you, too.
I am very patient and friendly, and have a lot of experience teaching. I have taught English to international students at my university, in addition to teaching English as a foreign language at a summer camp in Barcelona, to children aged 5 to 15.
During the sessions, you will guide what we cover. In language learning, I am in favour of understanding, rather than learning by repetition. We can also focus on exam questions and exam technique if you wish.
I hope the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in an hour, especially if it is made enjoyable- I would love to pass on my passion for languages!
I'm applying to university.. Can you help me?!
Yes! I can also help with your personal statement.
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you would like to focus on during the session.
I look forward to meeting you!
