About me

I am in my final year of a French and Spanish degree at UCL, and have tutored for over three years now. I have spent the last year studying at universities in France and Uruguay, which have only strengthened my enthusiasm for languages. As well as teaching French and Spanish, I also teach History and English Language and English Literature. On the admissions coaching side, I have a lot of experience with UCAS personal statements.

French, Spanish, History and English tutoring

I have always helped younger students and tutees and love to help others get through whatever they struggle with. I know many people struggle with languages and literature but I am here to show you that they are not hard, they are great! I have a very personalised approach, so every tutorial will be led by you and focused on what you most need help with. In language and literature, understanding and recognising patterns is key, so we will focus on this before we move onto practice exam questions. Consolidating grammar and vocabulary as well as essay technique is also fundamental to my approach. You can never practise too much!

UCAS applications

I have a lot of experience in writing and editing personal statements for many different subjects. My tutees have gained places at Edinburgh, Bristol, Durham and Newcastle, to name a few. I know writing a personal statement can be very daunting, but I'm here to help! It is easy once you understand what the univerty admissions officers are looking for, and how to present your achievements and interests in the best light.

Contact me

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through this website, I will be happy to help you. Please tell me what you would like to cover, you exam board or target universities and courses, and anything you particularly struggle with.

I look forward to helping you!

Questions Isabel has answered

How do I do well in the oral exam?

The A-Level language oral exam can be very intimidating, but you need to remember that the examiner is not there to trip you up, he or she want you to do well too! The best way to revise is to draw mind maps of possible questions that might come up and their answers, and get a friend to help you. This makes sure you stay on the topic, saying relevant things, and don'y ramble. Ask your teacher or tutor for some sample practice questions and also revise key structures and vocab, so if your mind goes blank, you still have something to say!

How do I remember all the dates?

In order to recall facts quickly, such as specific dates I find the best results come with using flashcards. For example, on an index card write the event you need to remember (The October Revolution), and then on the other side, write the date at place (St Petersburg, 25 October 1917). Then test yourself by going through the cards and guessing the date. When you get one right, put it to the side and continue with your other flashcards. Keep going until you have them all in the 'correct' pile.

How do i structure the answer to my essay questions?

In History, it is important to include the three C's (Causes, Course and Consequences) into each answer. Using all of these ensure that you demonstrate to the examiner that you have a sound grasp of all aspects of the event in question. Also, in each individual paragraph, make sure you back up your point with evidence, and then explain their significance. Keep your answers succint and to the point. Remember, quality if more important than quantity.
