Degree: Modern Languages (French & Italian) (Bachelors) - Oxford, Lincoln College University
I study modern languages at the University of Oxford. I’m extremely passionate about languages and the arts in general.
I spend a lot of my time abroad and I love travelling. Highlights include campervan tours all over Europe, studying in Florence, teaching English in Lombardy and working in Paris.
Our sessions together will be guided by whatever you’d like to discuss. I’m committed to making our sessions stimulating, engaging and enjoyable. Having taught English to non-native speakers, I know firsthand the importance of clear communication and flexibility.
I will use a variety of methods in our sessions. I will adapt to your individual needs. For language tuition in particular, it is very important to cover the four key skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, as well as grammar, which can be fun, I promise!
I’m more than happy to help you with university applications, particularly to the University of Oxford. This includes all stages of the application process, from personal statements to interview preparation.
How to contact me:
Send me a message through the my tutor website if you have any questions. Do go ahead and book a ‘Meet the Tutor’ session. Please let me know the subject, level and exam board you’d like me to help you with, alongside any specific difficulties you’re facing.
I very much look forward to meeting you!

The term Bildungsroman is used to describe a genre of fiction which describes the protagonist's formative years, the process of growing up and/or their spiritual development. These novels often focus on the psychological and moral views of the protagonist.
The term is a compound form of the German nouns Bildung = education and Roman = novel.
There are many notable examples of Bildungsroman, such as Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha.
It is importance to understand the term because lots of these novels appear on A level specifications, such as Jane Eyre, To Kill a Mockingbird and The Catcher in the Rye.see more

A conjunction is a word used to join together clauses within a sentence. In German there are two types of conjunctions, Coordinating conjunctions and Subordinating conjunctions.
Subordinating conjunctions are the trickiest so let's start with those. Subordinating conjunctions require the conjugated verb in the second clause to be moved to the end of the clause.
Ich denke, dass Deutsch eine schwierige Sprache ist = I think that German is a difficult language.
Coordinating conjunctions allow the verb to be placed in the same place as in the preceeding clause.
For example: Ich schwimme gern und ich gehe oft ins Schwimmbad = I like swimming and I often go to the swimming pool.
For a full list of Coordinating and Subordinating conjunctions please see the following link: https://www.lsa.umich.edu/german/hmr/Grammatik/Konjunktionen/Konjunktionen.htmlsee more
