Degree: MPhil General Linguistics and Comparative Philology (Masters) - Oxford, St Anne's College University
I am currently pursuing the MPhil in Linguistics and Philology at St Anne's, Oxford, having graduated in 2013 with a first in Linguistics and Georgian from SOAS, University of London. Language and languages have always been my keenest interest, whether as applied to theatre, creative writing, or foreign languages. My experience in teaching ranges from running poetry workshops and tutoring English to teaching drama in primary schools and to young adults at Blackheath Youth Theatre ( http://www.blackheathyouththeatre.com/tutors/#/adham-smart/ ).
*CLICHE ALERT* Everyone is different, and I will design my teaching around you and your needs. You might want me to explain in detail a particular topic or problem from top to bottom, or you might just need some questions answered quickly - whatever works for you works for me.
You'll find me easy to get on with and very patient, so please feel free to ask anything; *INCOMING CLICHE* there's no such thing as a stupid question.
If you're interested, get in touch! Send me a WebMail or book a 'Meet the Tutor' session and let's get cracking.

Take the '-masu' ending off the verb, leaving the stem (e.g. 'kaemasu --> kae-') and just add '-te'. The '-te' form is extremely useful: combine it with 'kudasai' to ask someone to do something, with 'imasu' to show ongoing action, with 'shimaimasu' for finishing actions, amongst other things.
Verb with the syllables below in the root form the '-te' form slightly differently (the resulting '-te' forms are on the right). My teacher taught us to sing these to the tune of 'London Bridge is falling down' (ichiritte bimininde, bimininde, bimininde, ichiritte bimininde, kiite giide shishite) and it's stuck, so why not try it!
i, chi, ri - tte
bi, mi, ni - nde
ki - ite
gi - ide
shi - shite (this includes 'shimasu')see more
