About me

My name is Lily and I'm currently studying German and Italian at university. I love my subject because it combines all the things I’m interested in: I get to develop a deeper understanding of European culture through great literature, film and art, but I also have the more technical side of my degree with grammar and translation, which provides a change from the essays!

I found my A Levels and applying to university challenging, but my experience was made much easier by the academic...

My name is Lily and I'm currently studying German and Italian at university. I love my subject because it combines all the things I’m interested in: I get to develop a deeper understanding of European culture through great literature, film and art, but I also have the more technical side of my degree with grammar and translation, which provides a change from the essays!

I found my A Levels and applying to university challenging, but my experience was made much easier by the academic support I got from my teachers at school and my German tutor, who helped to give me much needed confidence in my German speaking skills. I found all this guidance invaluable and would really love to pass this on to students who are in a similar position.

Aside from my degree, my great passion is music: I sing in a choir, run an a cappella group and have taken part in several operas over the last two years. I also enjoy doing charity work whilst studying and have been on the committee for a refugee action and aid charity for the past year.

There is no universal way of learning or revising, and that’s why my Online Lessons will be tailored to each individual student. Whether you want to focus on exam skills, essay writing or even oral practice, we will discuss this before every session to make sure that your problem areas are being targeted effectively. During the sessions, we will use the Online Classroom and pre-prepared material which I will provide if necessary, and I will make sure to ask you frequently throughout the session if the pace is okay, if I’m explaining things clearly enough and if what we are doing is helpful.

What I’ve learnt from my own experience with exams is that it is so important to use all the resources provided by the exam board, including the specification and past mark schemes. We will refer to these throughout our sessions to make sure you achieve the grades you need. However, I also learnt that a genuine interest in the subject is vital, as weeks of revision can easily become boring and uninspiring otherwise. Therefore, we will be sure focus on achieving a broader perspective on your subject, working on developing your own opinions for essay subjects and identifying areas of interest for further investigation outside of the lessons. This type of learning is also very important for university applications, as universities love to see that you’ve taken an interest in a subject outside of the curriculum.
