About me

About Me:

I am a languages student at Newcastle University. I have always had a real passion and love for all things to do with language and hope that my tutorials will instill that love in you, too.

I am very patient and friendly. I taught English to people between the ages of 4 and 28 whilst studying in China, so I have plenty of teaching experience. I also volunteered as a French assistant in sixth form to help other students with their French.

The Sessions:

During the sessions, you will guide what we cover. In languages, basic understanding is key, so before we do exam questions, we will focus on this.

I will use as many different ways (diagrams, words, analogies) as possible to explain a concept, until you are confident enough that you can explain it to me (or anyone else).

I hope the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in a short amount of time especially if it is made enjoyable - languages are amazing and hopefully, if you didn’t think that before, you will by the end of the session!

I'm applying to study languages at univeristy.. Can you help me?!

Yes! I have been through the application procedure so am familiar with how stressful it can be.

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Louise has answered

What's the difference between imperfect and perfect?

Perfect (avoir/être + past particle) is used to describe a single, completed action in the past. For example, I ate a sandwich = J'ai mangé un sandwich. The action happened once, and it's finished.

Compare this with imperfect: I used to eat a sandwich every day = Je mangeais un sandwich tous les jours. This happened multiple times, and therefore is NOT a single action, so you cannot use the present tense. You use imperfect instead.

Another example is a single, incomplete action. For example, I was eating a sandwich when I saw my friend. = Je mangeais un sandwich quand j'ai vu mon amis. This time, the action was interrupted by another action, so it is incomplete and therefore needs imperfect, not perfect.

If unsure, if you say "used to do" or "was doing" in English, you'll usually use the imperfect tense in French.

When is the verb sent to the end of the sentence?

The verb is sent to the end of the sentence after certain conjunctions called subordinating conjunctions. You simply have to learn what these conjunctions are, as there is no specific rule.

Subordinating conjunctions are the following:

weil (because)

dass (that)

obwohl (although)

wenn (when [in present/future]/if)

ob (whether)

warum (why)

während (while/during)

bevor (before)

seitdem (since)

nachdem (after)

so lange (as long as)
