About me

In January 2017, I graduated from the University of York with a MA in Medieval Studies awarded with Distinction. I graduated from the same University in 2015 with a BA (Hons) in History awarded with First Class Honours. Although History is my main focus now I have always loved learning, and hope that my enthusiasm is something I can share with tutees.In January 2017, I graduated from the University of York with a MA in Medieval Studies awarded with Distinction.

About my sessions

As I'm offering a few different disciplines, I'm planning to take a slightly different approach to each one. What will be the same across the board is that I will let the student take the lead on what we focus on, and the approach we take.  History and English Language There will be two approaches used during History, and English Language sessions. Half of the session/s will focus on using sources, and then the other half will focus on essay planning and writing in response to questions. In both cases, we'll use examples throughout the session to build your familiarity with the types of sources and questions that you might be interacting with during exams and coursework.  Of course, if you'd like to focus on just one of these aspects then let me know, and that's what we'll do! Biology Using the topics that you'd like to go through, we'll begin with a step-by-step breakdown of the topic and then talk through it together to aid understanding. This may involve using words and/or diagrams, but is something that can be altered based on your own learning preferences. Only when you feel confident that you understand the concept or topic will we move on to looking at exam questions, and how these topics are presented in the exams. Getting in Touch If you would like to know more, then please send me a message, or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' via this website. Please include in your message the following information: - Subject (and, for History, whether this is GCSE or A-level) - Exam Board - Topics you'd like to focus onAs I'm offering a few different disciplines, I'm planning to take a slightly different approach to each one.

Questions Jennifer has answered

What should I do if I forget an important word or phrase during the speaking exam?

Speaking exams can be very daunting, but it's important to remember that these exams haven't been designed to trip you up in any way. The examiner will want you to do well too! 

It's also important not to be disheartened if you forget a word or phrase - it doesn't reflect badly on your Spanish abilities! We forget, mishear, and misinterpret things all the time in our first language without it impacting our confidence in our fluency, and it works the same way with other languages. 

Take a second to see if the word/phrase comes to you. If it doesn't, then talking around it is fine too, and can actually help demonstrate your fluency!

For example, if you were in the middle of your exam and forgot a particular word, then instead of switching to English, or just pausing, you could say "Me olvide la palabra, pero es..." and then define the word that you mean in Spanish. This can allow the examiner to fill in the word for you, and better mimics an actual conversation. It'll also give you a bit more time to collect your thoughts and get back on track.
