About me

I am currently a second-year undergraduate at the University of Oxford studying Spanish and Linguistics. I've always harboured a love for learning and I really enjoy instilling that passion in others. Furthermore, I understand the importance of varied and innovative teaching approahces and learning techniques and apply these to my tutorials in order to enable each of my students to perform at their highest level. I would love to pass on my zest for learning and enable students to fulfill their true potential. I have previously acted as a Spanish, Latin and Ancient Greek tutor at my secondary school, as well as teaching Speech and Drama to children from the age of 7 to 13; both were incredibly rewarding experiences and equipped me with a wide breadth of teaching experience. My experiences with teaching have allowed me to engage my students in a highly interactive and engaging learning enviroment, giving them the support and encouragement needed to fulfil their potential.

About my sessions

After getting to know each other in a free 15 minute session, I will strive to ascertain my student's current level in the relevant subject, their preferred learning approaches and the areas in which they struggle. During the tutorial, I will ensure that my approach is entirely tailored to the student's learning preferences, whilst maintaining a strong focus on content, in order to make the lesson both enjoyable and informative. At the end of each tutorial, I will send a short feedback statement to both the student and parent, containing the positives of the lesson and areas for improvement which will be worked on in the following tutorial, as well as suggestions for independent work the student could be doing to maximise their success.

Nikita has been a huge help to me with improving my Spanish these last few months in preparation for my exam(s). My teacher, friends and I have seen such an improvement in my Spanish and now I actually don't dread my exam! Nikita has helped me with grammar, vocab and exam technique and I have really enjoyed our sessions, I can't thank you enough and fingers crossed for the exam!

Questions Nikita has answered

How can I increase the sophistication of my written work in Spanish?

Written work in a foreign language may seem slightly daunting at GCSE level, but there are many ways in which you can improve the sophistication of your written work with just a few simple tips! 

1) Try and include some varied opinion phrases in your work, such as 'me parece que...' (I think that), 'a mis ojos...' (in my eyes)'. These phrases will demonstrate to your teacher/examiner that you've not only got different ideas about the written topic, but also that you've acquired a wide range of vocabulary!

2) Try and include as many different persons of the verb as you can. Most students have the tendency to constantly write in the first person and only state their own opinions, but it will really improve the sophistication of your written work if you are able to talk about what your friend likes, or what your parents are doing this weekend.

3) Thirdly, a variety of tenses is a sure-fire way to impress your teacher/examiner. Rather than just writing in the present tense, try to talk about something that may have happened to you a while ago, using the preterite, or perhaps a habit you've had since you were young, using the imperfect, or even what you'll be doing next summer, using the future! This type of tense work not only makes your written work more impressive and sophisticated, but it also makes it a lot more interesting for the reader.
