About me

About Me

Hi! I’m a Modern Languages student at UCL, studying French and Italian.

I’ve been studying languages for over 10 years now and I love it – the satisfaction and excitement that comes with being able to communicate with people in a different tongue never goes away!

I’m currently on my year abroad – I’m in my second semester now, studying at the University of Bologna in Italy, and in my first semester I did an internship in Paris. The opportunity to live, work and study abroad is one of the many reasons why studying languages is great, and if you don’t already love French and/or Italian, I hope to change your mind!

I’m enthusiastic, friendly, and easy-going. I was a coach with CoachBright so I have experience motivating students and helping them to get the most out of their education.

The Sessions

It’s up to you what we will cover in our tutor sessions.

Let me know beforehand what you’re struggling with, and I’ll try to show you a different way of looking at it, to make things clearer. A lot of the time, French and Italian aren’t so different from English, and most things can be explained in a way that’s familiar to an English speaker.

I'm applying to Oxbridge, can you help me with the MLAT?

Yes! I passed the MLAT when applying to Oxford back in 2012, so I can help you prepare for it, and show you that it’s no scarier than any other exam!

What next?

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a WebMail, or go straight ahead and book a Meet the Tutor Session.

Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

What are relative pronouns and how do I use them in Italian?

Relative pronouns are used to connect two clauses by substituting the noun. There are three main relative pronouns used in Italian. These are: che il quale / la quale / i quali / le quale cui Some of these are used with prepositions and some of them are not, and it is important to know how to...

Relative pronouns are used to connect two clauses by substituting the noun. There are three main relative pronouns used in Italian. These are:

che
il quale / la quale / i quali / le quale
cui


Some of these are used with prepositions and some of them are not, and it is important to know how to differentiate between them. 

Let's look at them one by one. 

Che

Che is used without prepositions, and does not change gender or number. It is used as the subject or object of a subsidiary clause.

Examples

Che as subject:

Ho letto il libro che era sul tavolo.
I mediciche hanno partecipato alla conferenza, erano americani.

Che as direct object:

La ragazzache hai incontrato ieri, è mia cugina.
Le signoreche hai visto alla festa, sono molto ricche.

Il quale / la quale / i quali / le quale

These are only used as the subject of a subsidiary clause, especially where there is ambiguity. They change based on gender or number. They are not used as a direct object, and can be used either with or without prepositions. 

Examples

Without prepositions:

Ho letto il libro, il quale era sul tavolo.

Ho rivisto Laurala quale parte per il Giappone la prossima settimana.

(Compare: Ho rivisto Laura che avevo già incontrato a Roma)

 

With prepositions:

Le scarpe delle quale [di + la quale] ti ho parlato sono in afferta oggi!

Cui

Cui is only used with prepositions as an indirect object.

Examples

L'avvocatoa cui ho scritto una lettera, non mi ha ancora risposto.

Le questionidi cui ti devo parlare, sono lunghe e complesse.

L'estate è la stagione in cui si prende tanto sole e si fanno tanti bagni al mare. 

Il / la / i / le + cui + noun

Cui, when used with definite articles, indicates possession.

Examples

Le sorelle di Gianni vivono una in Australia. I mariti delle sorelle di Gianni sono inglesi.

--> Le sorelle di Gianni, i cui mariti sono inglesi, vivono in Australia.
