About me

I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Oxford studying Spanish and Linguistics. I've always had a love for learning and I really enjoy instilling that passion in others. I understand the importance of varied and innovative learning techniques and the ways in which students can perform at their highest level. I would love to pass on my zest for learning and enable children to fulfill their true potential. I have previously acted as a Spanish, Latin and Greek tutor at my secondary school. The experience was both hugely rewarding and fascinating for me, since I understand the fact that every child is different and thus will inevitably learn in different ways. I have also taught Speech and Drama to children from the age of 7 to 13, so I have a wide breadth of teaching experience. My experiences with teaching have allowed me to come up with new and engaging revision techniques to aid students with their learning in a comfortable and fun environment. I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Oxford studying Spanish and Linguistics.

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.
