About me

Hi, I'm Isabel! I have just begun a Masters at Oxford University. I have a real interest in languages, as well as all things History and Humanities related. I think being able to communicate effectively is one of the most important skills you can have - and I want to help you confidently articulate your ideas into writing and into speaking. I have been a tutor at an academy in London for over two years, and have experience teaching children all the way from 7 to 18. I am adaptable and flexible to different styles of learning, including those with difficulties in certain areas. The session will depend on your age, your level, and your approach to learning. Everyone is different, and I believe in moulding my tutoring to you.

About my sessions

If I am teaching you Spanish, I will focus on your fluency for the Oral. Then we will take each theme from the syllabus a week at a time, focusing on any struggles you may have, and getting that vocab up to scratch. I am bilingual, so can really help you fine-tune your accent. In English, I can assist with anything from essay writing to 11+ comprehensions. For History, we'll do fun memory tests, and practice planning great essay answers. We will tailor the learning to your exam board, and their assessment structure. If you are preparing your personal statement, then trust me, UCAS is no fun for anyone! But I'm here to get your application looking fantastic, and making sure you have covered all the elements the admissions tutors are looking for. I look forward to meeting you! Just send me a 'WebMail' and we'll arrange a program that works for you.

Isabel has been very patient with my slightly reluctant son. However, his acknowledgement that the tutorials are greatly improving his Spanish speaks volumes for me. Thank you

Questions Isabel has answered

How can I ensure I do well in my Oral or Writing when I do not know what the question or topics will be, I always get 'brain-freeze' under pressure?

Exam pressure and extreme stress stop our brains working effectively, so the best way to ace the oral and writing exams is to trick yourself into feeling confident and calm. This is actually easier to achieve that you think. What you should do is get some perfect sentences in every topic-area ready that you could recite asleep, so when you get to the speaking, you know you are going to score some brilliant points almost effortlessly. This will put you at ease, and allow you to be adventurous and show off your skills. You’ll soon see your brain will be on fire rather than freezing up!

For example, for the Family topic, let’s get a subjunctive ready, and some excellent vocab. You could have something like:
‘Me gustaria haber tenido un animal en casa, pero mi hermano los tiene alergia. Cuando vive sola, tendré un largartija, porque me interesan los reptiles.'
