Hello, my name is Olivia. I am currently in my fourth year studying French and Italian at the University of Bristol. I have always had a passion for languages and literature and I really enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with other students. Learning languages can be fun – but you also need to do well in your exams! I know from experience that languages can be tricky and I will work to improve your understanding. English Literature and Language is equally as challenging and something I work on everyday as part of my degree, with essays and literature or language analysis. I have now been working as a tutor for 4 years during which I have gain a large amount of teaching experience. Watching my students improve and progress throughout my sessions has been brilliant! I have had the opportunity to teach a huge variety of students of all ages (including adults). My teaching experience has taught me to be patient and understanding and I know having one-to-one help with GCSEs and A-levels can make a real difference. I find that helping students is personally very rewarding and it is a joy to see them become more confident in their own abilities while their marks improve.

About my sessions

My sessions are built around the educational requirements of my student. It all depends on their areas for improvement, the subject and how soon the exam is as well as how they prefer to learn. 

I prepare before each session with a plan of what we will achieve and the resources necessary. I alwasy bare in mind how previous sessions have gone and how much we will cover, whether it be a specific point or exam question or a more general look at a topic.

My sessions are built around the educational requirements of my student. It all depends on their areas for improvement, the subject and how soon the exam is as well as how they prefer to learn. 

I prepare before each session with a plan of what we will achieve and the resources necessary. I alwasy bare in mind how previous sessions have gone and how much we will cover, whether it be a specific point or exam question or a more general look at a topic.

Progress is always difficult to measure! I talk through with my students how they think the session went, and check their understanding of everything covered, at the end of session. I will also write notes that review each session that I am then happy to send to a parent as an overlook of progress each week. I find that is imperative to always build up to a long-term goal (of an exam mark or understanding of a topic) with a series of more short-term, specific and achievable goals. This is vital in giving a sense of the progress we have made as my student can pinpoint what they can now understand or do. 

Communication between myself and my student is key! I strongly encourage learning by looking at how my student has improved, what we have done and discussing what will be next on the agenda. Constructing a session around a student means discussing our goals at the end of each session, and reassessing at the start of the next one.
