About me

Hello! I am currently studying Modern Languages (French & Spanish) at University of Cambridge. Discovering other languages and cultures has always fascinated me so when I had the option to pick two languages at GCSE, I was excited but also scared. Learning languages is very difficult, especially when the grammar, vocab and sentence structure is so different from your own mother tongue.

Hello! I am currently studying Modern Languages (French & Spanish) at University of Cambridge. Discovering other languages and cultures has always fascinated me so when I had the option to pick two languages at GCSE, I was excited but also scared. Learning languages is very difficult, especially when the grammar, vocab and sentence structure is so different from your own mother tongue. Having studied Spanish and French at iGCSE and Pre-U (A-level equivalent), I am all too familiar with the daunting prospects of taking exams in another language. However, I can confidently say that there are certain tips and techniques that helped me learn the language and do very well. To tackle an exam in the best way possible, one must also get to grips with exam technique and I will be able to help you with this too; most language exams have a similar layout and examiners tend to look for the same things in a student's writing.

Studying Maths at Pre-U gave me a balance during Sixth Form and I thoroughly enjoyed it, not only because it engaged the logical side of my brain but also because it made the study of Economics much more accessible when understanding diagrams, graphs and equations.

As for applying to Oxbridge, I am very willing to share my experience and useful tips to future applicants. The process can be very scary, from writing a great personal statement to performing at interview, so hopefully I can ease your mind and help you as you go through it.

About my sessions

It's very important to start revision early and keep the language learning consistent so in my sessions I will ask students to learn a list of words that will be tested in the following session.

We will draw out together strengths and weaknesses, whether it be those that have been already pointed out by teachers or those which we discover in the process.

At the end of the day, when it comes to exams, past papers and mark schemes are the best indicator of what to write and what...

It's very important to start revision early and keep the language learning consistent so in my sessions I will ask students to learn a list of words that will be tested in the following session.

We will draw out together strengths and weaknesses, whether it be those that have been already pointed out by teachers or those which we discover in the process.

At the end of the day, when it comes to exams, past papers and mark schemes are the best indicator of what to write and what the examiners expect. Therefore, we will use past exam questions as well as revision

Each lesson we will focus on a certain aspect that the student finds complicated, there will be an explanation and then written exercises.

I wish to integrate audio-visual comprehension (as often as possible) to be watched prior to the lesson on a particular theme and then we will discuss the theme orally and the vocabulary surrounding it.

All tutorials will be tailored to the goals of the student and the time frame to reach said goals.
