I am currently in the final year of my degree in French and Spanish at the University of Cambridge. I spent my year abroad last year living in Chile for six months and travelling South America and then interning in Paris, France for six months.


I am available to tutor French and Spanish to A Level standard. Whether you need help with reading, writing, speaking or listening, I am here to help! I understand that speaking practice in particular can be a bit difficult in schools sometimes so I would make a particular effort to use our lessons to speak as much as we can in the target language.


Having gone through the Cambridge application process, I am also happy to support students wishing to apply to Oxbridge or other top universities with their application, whatever subject they may be applying for. I have experience in helping students successfully apply to these universities and I offer support in personal statement writing and mock interviews.


I can also help teach Maths to GCSE standard, having achieved an A* grade in this subject at A Level.

About my sessions

My sessions are very much tailor-made to the individual. Lessons will focus on your specific needs and I am always happy to hear what you want to learn and we will plan our sessions to fit in with this.


Our first session will be a discussion of the topics that the student would like to focus on and the areas that they feel they most need to work on. After this, we will discuss what we cover in our sessions briefly at the end of each lesson to give the student the opportunit...

My sessions are very much tailor-made to the individual. Lessons will focus on your specific needs and I am always happy to hear what you want to learn and we will plan our sessions to fit in with this.


Our first session will be a discussion of the topics that the student would like to focus on and the areas that they feel they most need to work on. After this, we will discuss what we cover in our sessions briefly at the end of each lesson to give the student the opportunity to highlight the areas that they would most like to work on.


I will usually set a short piece of work between sessions to recap what we did previously and ensure that the student has understood the class. Each session will begin by going over this work, ensuring that we go over any gaps in the student's knowledge. The main part of the lesson will be a task focussed on the topic that we have agreed to cover in that lesson. This also gives the student the opportunity to ask any questions that arise related to the topic area.


In the case of lessons in French or Spanish, I will always aim to speak for at least 15 minutes in the language with the student. This is often a good opportunity to go over grammar and vocab as well so it fits nicely into the sessions.

Amy has been brilliant and boosted my confidence with French grammar as well as challenging me with complex vocabulary. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she encourages me to push myself. Thank you Amy for all your help and I would definitely like to continue!
