About me

About me:

Hi! My name is Luthien and I am currently working towards a Masters degree in Applied Human Rights at the University of York. I have a Bachelors degree in History and German from the University of Durham (First Class Honours). I already have some experience teaching. This includes working at an after-school club focusing on English and Maths while I was doing my A Levels. I also spent a year working as a language assistant at a school in Germany during my University Year Abroad. I understand the challenges involved with studying for GCSEs and A Levels, and I will endeavour to support you as much as I can in your studies.

Subjects and Sessions

I offer tutorials in German (A Level/GCSE), History (A Level/GCSE) and English Literature (GCSE). I love these subjects and I am able to assist in any area from essay writing to German grammar, from the Tudor period to speaking tests, or from Shakespeare plays to 20th Century European history. Whatever topic you need help with, we can find a way to make it work.

Above all, the sessions will be centred around you and how you prefer to learn. Everyone learns differently and the tutorials will reflect this. I am very patient and will try to make the sessions as fun and interactive as possible. Learning should always be enjoyable! 

How to get in contact:

Send me a message or book a 'Meet-the-Tutor Session', if you have any questions. Please just let me know which subject(s) you would like to focus on, any particular topic you are finding challenging and your exam board. 

Hope to hear from you soon!

How do I form the pluperfect tense?

We use the pluperfect tense to describe something or an action that had happened in the past. It is a really useful tense to know how to use and can help to elevate your German skills. The pluperfect is formed using the imperfect tense of haben or sein as an auxiliary and the past participle....

We use the pluperfect tense to describe something or an action that had happened in the past. It is a really useful tense to know how to use and can help to elevate your German skills.

The pluperfect is formed using the imperfect tense of haben or sein as an auxiliary and the past participle. Whether you use haben or sein depends on the verb involved.

Example 1 (with haben as the auxiliary)

Let's use the verb machen (meaning 'to do' or 'to make') to form the pluperfect tense. This verb takes the auxiliary haben and its past participle is gemacht.

Ich hatte gemacht - I had done/made

Du hattest gemacht

Er/sie/es hatte gemacht

Wir hatten gemacht

Ihr hattet gemacht

Sie/sie hatten gemacht

Example 2 (with sein as the auxiliary)

Verbs of motion, verbs expressing a change of state/condition and some other verbs, such as bleiben, take sein as their auxiliary.

Let's use gehen (meaning 'to go') as an example of how to form the pluperfect tense using the auxiliary sein. Its past participle is gegangen.

Ich war gegangen - I had gone

Du warst gegangen

Er/sie/es war gegangen

Wir waren gegangen

Ihr wart gegangen

Sie/sie waren gegangen

The key things know when forming the pluperfect are the past participle of the verb involved and whether the auxiliary is haben or sein. Good luck using the pluperfect tense!
