Degree: Modern Languages and Cultures (Spanish and Russian) (Bachelors) - Durham University
Hi guys! I'm a recent graduate from Durham University, studying Spanish and Russian (as well as having done Italian and French to A Level, qualifying me as a complete languages tragic). I'm already fairly experienced in the world of one-to-one tutoring, having done this on previous occasions in both the UK and in Spain whilst I was on my Year Abroad.
In my experience as a languages student, one-to-one sessions are truly the most beneficial as communication is the essential part of learning a language, and in this kind of environment I will be able to focus on your needs and how to further your language learning without any outside distractions (or without either of us getting bored!). The sessions will of course be tailored to what you, as the student, wish to practice the most. No two students are the same, particularly when it comes to a vast subject like learning a language, so we will target the areas that need to be worked on the most with each individual, be it grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and so forth.
As someone with many years of academic experience in different languages, I'd like to think I know what it takes to be a successful student and what really attracts the highest marks from examiners. Whatever your level, I'd love to hear from you soon!

The two forms of aspect in Russian (the imperfective and the perfective) essentially function in the same way as the perfect and imperfect tenses do in other languages.
For example, if in English you wish to describe an unfinished action or a repeated action (e.g. "I was reading the book" or "I read the book every day", then this would correspond to the imperfective aspect in Russian: "Я читал книгу".
However, if you wish to express that you completed the action of reading the book, then the perfective aspect is used: "I finished reading the book" "Я прочитал книгу".
The perfective aspect is used primarily for one-off actions that are completed, whereas the imperfective typically denotes an unfinished process or a habitual action.see more
