About me

About me 

I am currently studying French and Spanish at the University of Bath. Two languages wasn't enough so I have also taken up beginner's Italian. Since visiting France from an early age I have always loved learning languages and throughout GCSEs and A levels my passion for them has grown thanks to some great teaching. 

I hope that you share in my enthusiam for French and Spanish and I hope to encourage some of you who wish to continue with a language beyond GCSEs, and even beyond A levels to university. It's a rewarding experience and I have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. 

The sessions

Ultimately it is up to you what topics or issues we cover. Let me know any things you are having difficulty with. In particular, I can help with students wishing to gain the highest marks in writing and speaking assessments, through essay structuring, key phrases (idioms), helping with exam technique and useful ways of showing off your knowledge of the language to the examiner. I also love grammar, so if there are certain grammar rules that you struggle with, we can address that, going through examples. If you think some I:I speaking practice would be helpful, or you would prefer to practise some listening exercises, I am here to help. Most importantly, I hope to make the sessions engaging and informative.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. If you think we could be a good match, book a 'meet the tutor' session. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Questions Matthew has answered

How do you know when a noun is masculine or feminine?

Generally speaking, nouns that end in 'o' are masculine (el niño, el perro) and those that end in 'a' (la piscina, la manzana) are feminine. There are other clues in the endings as well. (there are some exceptions, such as: la mano, la foto, la moto) Nouns that end in '-dad', 'tad' and 'tud' ...

Nouns that end in '-dad', 'tad' and 'tud' are feminine e.g la comunidad, la responsibilidad, la amistad, la libertad, la juventud, la virtud.

Other feminine endings are '-ción', 'sión' and 'gión' (la religión, la irritación, la canción, la profesión)

How do you know when to use the imperfect tense and when to use the perfect?

The imperfect tense is used for an action that was ongoing in the past (Je lisais un roman = I was reading a novel). These verbs are often incomplete, hence, imperfect. An example of this is the sentence: Je lisais un roman lorsque tout d'un coup, la téléphone a sonné. (I was reading a novel ...

The imperfect tense is used for an action that was ongoing in the past (Je lisais un roman = I was reading a novel). These verbs are often incomplete, hence, imperfect. An example of this is the sentence:

Je lisais un roman lorsque tout d'un coup, la téléphone a sonné. (I was reading a novel when all of a sudden, the telephone rang). 

The reading of the novel was interrupted by the other past action (la téléphone a sonné). This action is a complete action in the past so it takes the perfect form.
