Degree: French, Spanish and Russian (Triple Honours) (Bachelors) - St. Andrews Unversity University
I am a 20 year old language student at the University of St Andrews. I have always had a passion for language and literature and I hope that my tutorials will instill this enthusiasm in you too!
I am a very patient, kind and helpful person. I enjoy guiding young people to be the best that they can be. I volunteered as a young leader for my local Girl Guiding group for 3 years and I also spent 3 months working as an au pair in Spain - so I have a some great experience teaching language to children! I even taught French and Spanish to Primary School children while at Grammar School.
For me, learning is fun and the best way to learn is to have fun !
I aim to give interesting and fun tutorials where students feel they can ask anything that they may not wish to ask in a class setting. I know that, as a child, I would have appreciated such an environment.
I will tailor each tutorial to suit each individual student's unique needs and wishes at that specific time. Furthermore, I am happy to discuss the best learning style for you so that the tutorials remain engaging and informative. I am also happy to set and mark homework as I believe that learning from mistakes is essential.
For language tutorials, my main aim is that the student can speak in the target language during the tutorial. Confidence is key to gaining a grasp of a new language and I strive to provide an encouraging environment where the student feels they can speak freely and practise any new vocabulary or techniques.

When it comes to oral exams it is easy to get nervous. However, there is really no need!
The most important thing to remember is to relax and be yourself. The aim is to have as natural a conversation as possible with the examiner.
I would recommend learning a few set colloquial phrases which you can sprinkle throughout the conversation - this allows you to show off all of the brilliant vocabulary you have learnt throughout the year! You may also want to think of some potential questions or themes which are likely to arise throughout the conversation. For example, if you have been learning about Spanish food you should learn vocabulary related to food. Flash cards help me to learn vocabulary! I use lots of colour and sometimes even draw pictures!
