About me

Hi my name is Laura! I'm 21 and I'm a 4th year student at the University of Birmingham studying French, Spanish and Business. I absolutely love my subject as it's interesting, useful in the real world and opens up so many opportunities worldwide. I did a year abroad last year – working in Paris for 6 months and then studying in Huelva, Spain for 5 months, which has given me a great insight into both languages and cultures.

Hi my name is Laura! I'm 21 and I'm a 4th year student at the University of Birmingham studying French, Spanish and Business. I absolutely love my subject as it's interesting, useful in the real world and opens up so many opportunities worldwide. I did a year abroad last year – working in Paris for 6 months and then studying in Huelva, Spain for 5 months, which has given me a great insight into both languages and cultures. I did the International Baccalaureate in 6th Form, which was challenging, but I know it’s benefited me hugely. I’m part of the languages and skiing societies at uni, and I also enjoy socialising with my friends, exercising and cooking. I can help you improve by increasing your confidence, patiently helping you with difficult areas and ensuring that you are fully prepared for the exam. The tutorials will be structured with a quick revision of the previous session, and then depending on what we’re doing, explanations and talking through concepts as well as practise questions. I can also show you helpful videos, music and websites and make the sessions more fun! A variety of learning techniques work well for different people and I will always make sure we are learning in a way that suits you. Personally, I liked practise questions, and making visual revision notes for my exams, so I can certainly help you with this or any other technique you prefer. I've had experience on Mytutor for over 2 years and am looking for new students to help. Thank you!

**OFFERING REGULAR SLOTS ANYTIME BETWEEN 7.15pm - 10pm ON A WEDNESDAY EVENING**


I've had mentees at school for languages, and I've learnt that practice makes perfect! If there's something you're struggling with, I will explain it to you in a way that you'll understand, and then ensure that you've seen what you've just learnt used in the language. We can also go over tenses and irregular verb patterns if this is something you find hard, as...

 

**OFFERING REGULAR SLOTS ANYTIME BETWEEN 7.15pm - 10pm ON A WEDNESDAY EVENING**


I've had mentees at school for languages, and I've learnt that practice makes perfect! If there's something you're struggling with, I will explain it to you in a way that you'll understand, and then ensure that you've seen what you've just learnt used in the language. We can also go over tenses and irregular verb patterns if this is something you find hard, as well as discuss exam technique, particularly for orals as these are often the most scary! I can go over the basics with you if it seems like it's going by too fast at school, or if you're pushing for the top grades, I can help you with the techniques you need to get there. In the first year of the GCSE changes, one of my French tutees scored a 9.

With Economics, I think the key is a slower, simpler explanation than what you might get in class for something you struggle with. Essay writing is very important for Economics at IB and I can share my technique with you. The concepts are also very important, and we can discuss these together until you feel like it's something that you could explain in depth yourself!

Every lesson I had with Laura was extremely helpful and were all focused to my needs specifically, for which I am truely greatful. I became much more confident at speaking Spanish after my lessons, which used to be my biggest weakness. I would strongly recommend that anyone struggling with a language should seek Laura's help.
