Degree: BA CH International Relations and Spanish (Bachelors) - Exeter University
Hi! My name is Ana Cristina, and I am a student at the University of Exeter studying International Relations and Spanish. I am currently about to go on my Erasmus year abroad to Barcelona to study at the Universidad Pompeu Fabra.
I have always had a passion for languages due to my family background, as my mother is a Swiss national who grew up in Madrid, Spain, which is why I have a Spanish name. She taught me Spanish since I was very small, and this in addition to hearing lots of Swiss German has meant that languages have always come quite naturally to me. I also spent my summer before university au'pairing for a family in Pozuelo de Alarcón, Madrid. In sixth form I had lots of experience of mentoring GCSE students struggling with their Spanish, and am sure I will be able to help you too.
I took up Government and Politics at A-Level, having always enjoyed and excelled in history, and ever since it has grown to be one of my favourite subjects. Although my degree title states International Relations, I study together with PPE and Politics students and am hoping to write my dissertation based on the field of Security Studies. My personal A-Level topics covered British and American domestic politics, however I can help in any areas of politics you might be struggling with.
During the sessions, you will guide the direction of what you want us to cover. I will make sure that you understand the concepts, grammar rules or arguments you are tackling as well as possible before you put them to practical use in exam-style questions.
Everyone's learning style is completely different, so hopefully together we can find what works best to help you achieve the grades you deserve. My aim is that the sessions will be fun and enjoyable as well as informative, lots can be achieved in a 55 minute session, and with a bit of luck I'll be able to demonstrate that to you! Politics and languages aren't just subjects, they're ultimately skills we can use in our everyday lives.
If you have any questions, you can send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' through the website. Remember to let me know in your message what subject you would like to be tutored in and what exam board you are with. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

While different tenses describe when an action happened, different moods describe how the speaker feels about the action. There are three moods in Spanish: the indicative (which will be the tense you normally use to describe actions, events and facts), the imperative (which is used for commands) and the subjunctive.
We normally use the subjunctive when we are talking with uncertainty, or to express emotion, doubt or desires. This makes it different from the indicative tense, which describes actions which are already a reality or are believed to be true. Examples of when you would use the subjunctive in English would be after "I don't think that...", "I doubt that...", "it's amazing that..." or "her sister wants her to...".see more
