Who am I?
I am Charlie, a student at the University of Birmingham doing BA Modern Languages and I truly have an incredible passion for all things languages! What will tutoring with me be like? The fantastic thing about languages is, unlike all the sciences and maths, they don't exist in a vacuum. What that means is you can pass your GCSE or A-level and still have gained an unbelievably useful life skill! As a result, in our sessions we can either focus on your exam board specifications to tailor your language learning to the exam, or we could alternatively try to give you a deeper understanding of French and Spanish to try and get you that step closer to general fluency, or of course do a mixture of the both.
What will our sessions be like?
As someone who is currently studying his third foreign language, I understand how daunting it can be to get to grips with a new language. As a result, I will ensure that you have a firm understanding of the basics of French or Spanish, in addition to pointing you towards any of the numerous language-learning resources I have accumulated over the years.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Yes! With regards to A-level students in their final year, I can definitely offer advice about the entire UCAS process, or potentially give you guidance with your personal statement. I hope to hear from you soon!
