Hallo/Hola/Olá! I am a final year student at Cambridge University hoping to help out students following the same steps I took.

I have always really enjoyed the versatility studying languages offers. At University we have worked with classical literature topics, but also broached film studies, psychology, history, sociology and modern popular culture. When studying the language itself, as long as you are working in the language, you can find what you are interested in and essentially learn using your own passions. Who knew watching 'Los Simpson' could be so useful.

About my sessions

*Though I studied the IB myself, I often worked with A-level past papers for revision and have experience helping A-Level languages students also, so am very happy to tutor for both!*

Exams are often the goal so I find structuring the main chunk of sessions around past paper/mock questions helps the student to feel confident when it comes to writing/speaking an exam and get the best mark possible.

*Though I studied the IB myself, I often worked with A-level past papers for revision and have experience helping A-Level languages students also, so am very happy to tutor for both!*

Exams are often the goal so I find structuring the main chunk of sessions around past paper/mock questions helps the student to feel confident when it comes to writing/speaking an exam and get the best mark possible.

Learning purely for exams, however, completely takes the fun and point out of education, especially with such a colourful and varied subject such as languages. The best way to navigate through the big challenge of learning lots of new vocab and grammar is to immerse oneself in the language as much as possible, so I will aim to start and end lessons with some fun vocab quizzes, listening to a piece of popular music and talking about any funky phrases that come up, or even using clips from television shows or cartoons.


A typical lesson usually looks like:

1: A vocab test made up of words from the last session to make sure vocab is consolidated.

2: A short conversation in the language, can be conversational or topic based.

3: Revising a grammar point, then using practice sentences to help memorise it.

4: Working through a past paper question.

5: Looking at a piece of culture in the language, and identifying any new words or phrases.
