Degree: English and French (Bachelors) - Warwick University
I am an English and French undergraduate at the University of Warwick, with a genuine passion and interest in my subjects which I hope will show in my tutoring. Although I do not study Sociology at degree level, I really enjoyed the ALevel course and find that I am still using my sociological knowledge regularly, to enhance my interpretation of texts for my degree. I am now in my second year at university and thoroughly enjoyed tutoring on MyTutorWeb throughout my first year. Over the past year I have tutored three pupils regularly, and it has been rewarding to see their confidence and abilities improve.
I aim to make my tutoring individual to the tutee, as I understand that everyone works differently. Therefore, I will build on the strengths that the tutee already has, whilst equally addressing areas of weakness, helping the tutee to improve their work and gain confidence. In the past, I myself have struggled with having confidence in my own work, so I can certainly empathise with students in this situation. Furthermore, I hope to make my tutoring methods varied and engaging, in order to inspire the tutee with an interest in the subject, which will hoepfully show in the work they produce. I could help not only with subject content, but also with essay writing and revision tips, and for French I would offer suggestions on the best ways to tackle listening and reading excercises. All of my ALevels and my English GCSEs were done with the AQA examboard, although my French GCSE was done with OCR.

For many language students, speaking exams are a very daunting part of the course! It's important to remember that these exams aren't trying to catch you out; they're looking for you to be enthusiastic and demonstrate the French you know- those who show a willingness to express different ideas and engage in conversation usually do well.
Although the exam may focus around a spontaneous conversation, preparation is still crucial- you should go through the conversation topics that could come up, and make a habit of gathering ideas relating to the topic, thinking of questions or other issues your points could raise. At AS and A2 French, the topics can often be quite demanding in terms of their content, and to most they are difficult to talk about in English, let alone another language- don't be put off by this; you can use English revision notes to help set out your ideas and arguments, before moving on to working in French.
Conversation and engagement with questions are the most important part of the speaking exam, so working with someone else is an invaluable revision tool- work with a tutor, teacher or friend to get used to responding to questions spontaneously. This is the best way to gain confidence for your speaking exam, which will be very different from answering questions in the classroom setting you're used to.see more
