About me

About me:

Hello! I'm Alana, a modern languages student at University of Bath. I study German and Russian at university, but am also well versed in Spanish and Italian. Tutoring is something that I've been doing for a while, and I have experience teaching children between the ages of 6 and 16. 

About the tutoring:

Of course, what we cover in a tutoring session is up to you: I am here to help with the aspects of language that you are less confident about! With some guidance even the most complicated grammar constructs can be made more simple and understandable. I hope that you will enjoy the sessions, as learning a new language is not just challenging, but also fun! 

Any questions?

If you have any question, be it big or small, feel free to contact me on MyTutorWeb! I would be happy to answer any queries.

Questions Alana has answered

How does the gender of German nouns work?

In German there are three genders that a noun could have: masculine, feminine, and neuter. If you have studied French or Spanish for example, you will have seen nouns that have masculin or feminine genders, but in German we have a third gender too: neuter. 

Every German noun is assigned a gender, though in the plural form all nouns are the same, whatever gender they are. The gender of a noun changes the way in which we say 'the' or 'a', as well as changing the ending of adjectives that are used to describe it. It is an essential part of the german language!

When do you use 'sein' and when do you use 'haben' in the past tense?

When forming a sentence in the past, or perfect tense in German, it is always formed with a conjugation of 'sein' or 'haben', plus the past participle of the main verb. It is much more common to use the verb 'haben' with the past participle, however many verbs take 'sein' instead. The verb 'sein' is used when:

1)There is motion/movement. E.g. gehen, fahren (to go, to go by transport)

"Wir SIND ins Fitnesszentrum gegangen"

2)When changing states. E.g. einschlafen (to fall asleep)

"Ich BIN eingeschlafen"

3)With the exceptional verbs bleiben and sein (to stay and to be)

"Sie SIND zu Hause geblieben"
