My name is Ellie and I am in my second year (19 years old) studying Spanish and Italian at the University of Edinburgh. I have a passion for languages and I hope that I can help you to share my love! I'm super patient as I understand how tricky languages can be. I have experience working with all age groups from children as young as 3 to tutoring adults so I am comfortable adapting my teaching methods to you.
I am very flexible and happy to help you with whatever it is you're struggling with! If it's just a one off session to clear up a specific worry or a block of sessions leading up to your exam covering a real range of areas. We can work together to see how you learn best and make sure that you get the most out of every session.
If you have any questions you would like to ask me before arranging any sessions please don't hesitate to ask.

Learning vocab is not easy and different methods work for different people. Here are just a few suggestions of ways to try...
I find it very effective to categorise vocab e.g. Technology. Then for each category I make a colourful mind map full of vocab. I then try to memorise the mindmap by picturing the colours.
This method I love! Rip up a piece of paper and write vocab on each little piece. Try writing the word in English on one side and Spanish on the other. Then put the pieces into a small bag and pull them out individually, making yourself tranlaste the word into the language it doesn't appear in. This is great for reading / writing exams!
Flashcards are great for fitting a lot of information in a small amount of space. I like to choose 20 key words for an individual topic that I can fit onto one card. Flashcards are great as they're easy to carry around so you can revise on the go!
