Degree: International Development (Masters) - Oxford, Green Templeton College University
Hi! I have just begun as a Masters student at Oxford University. I have a real interest in languages being fluent in Spanish and English, 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 articulate your ideas into writing or into confident speaking.
I have been a tutor at an academy in London for over a year, and so have experience teaching, from kids all the way from 7 to 18. I am adaptable and flexible to different styles of learning, including those with difficulties in certain areas, and am super super enthusiastic!
These will depend on your age, your level, and your own responses to teaching. Everyone is different, and I believe in moulding my tutoring to you.
Spanish - As I am bilingual, I will focus on your accent and your fluency for the Oral. Then we will take each theme for the Core Course a week at a time, focusing on any struggles you may have, and get that vocab up to scratch and beyond.
English - Can asssit with anything from essay writing, to 11+ comprehensions. Just send me a 'WebMail' and we'll arrange a program that works for you.
History - Fun fact memory tests, and essay writing. We will tailor the learning to your exam board, and the assessment structure they have.
Personal statements - Trust me, UCAS is no fun for anyone! I'm here to get your application looks as fab as possible, and making sure you have covered all the elements the admissions tutors are looking for.
I look forward to meeting you!

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.'
