Hi! I'm Alycia, a first year languages student at Lancaster University, majoring in French with minors in beginner German and English Language. Learning foreign languages has allowed me to indulge my love of language from a linguistic perspective whilst also providing me with the opportunity to discover fascinating new cultures. Throughout school and university I have developed valuable transferable skills such as time-management, self-motivation and focus through balancing my studies with my commitment to dance. When taking exams at school and university, I have found that whilst my perfectionist mindset has driven me to strive for the best I can possibly achieve, it can also be the source of extra stress and pressure. I hope that my own experiences can help me to inspire a love of learning in other students, build their self-confidence and relieve some of the pressure they may feel when taking exams.

About my sessions

My sessions will be divided between gaining a thorough background knowledge in topics students feel they need practice in and then helping them to apply this knowledge in context.

Sessions will begin by breaking a topic down and explaining how it works step by step. Explanations will be accompanied by active examples that I will encourage a student to work through with me giving them an opportunity to see the process at each stage and to ask questions as we go along.

My sessions will be divided between gaining a thorough background knowledge in topics students feel they need practice in and then helping them to apply this knowledge in context.

Sessions will begin by breaking a topic down and explaining how it works step by step. Explanations will be accompanied by active examples that I will encourage a student to work through with me giving them an opportunity to see the process at each stage and to ask questions as we go along. To measure the student’s progress I will then ask them to explain an example to me to simultaneously demonstrate that they understand what they have learnt and to boost their confidence by showing themselves that they can explain it to someone else.

Sessions will conclude by applying what we have practised to an exam context so that they understand how to manipulate what they have learnt for different contexts. This could include writing or translating sentences that target a specific area of French grammar, understanding how linguistic theories can be applied in English Language essays or how to apply relevant historical context in literary analysis.
