About me

I've just finished my first year studying English at Cambridge, and am absolutely loving it so far! English and Spanish were my favourite subjects at school and I hope to share my enthusiasm with you, through learning about both by looking at them in the context of real life. Studying English Literature and Language has enabled me to develop my own voice and appreciation of those of others, and Spanish is a fantastic skill and can provide some fantastic opportunities.

About my sessions

My sessions will start with the most important thing - you! What do you want to learn? At the start of our first session, I will ask you about what you find difficult, what worries you have and what you enjoy about English or/and Spanish. For English Literature, we will start the sessions with an unseen passage/poem, you'll have some time to read it and make some notes, and we will then discuss how you might approach a question on that text.

My sessions will start with the most important thing - you! What do you want to learn? At the start of our first session, I will ask you about what you find difficult, what worries you have and what you enjoy about English or/and Spanish. For English Literature, we will start the sessions with an unseen passage/poem, you'll have some time to read it and make some notes, and we will then discuss how you might approach a question on that text. For the rest of the session we will work together on part of your set texts - this might involve planning past paper questions or writing out and developing a paragraph together for you to return to as part of your revision. For English Language, each session will be based around a theme. We will work on an extract for half the session, and spend the other half improving a piece of creative writing together. These are suggestions that I will vary up over the course of our time together. With regards to Spanish, we'll focus on expanding your understanding through online articles, song lyrics, Spanish TV programmes and other forms of media. This way you'll have the opportunity to not only consolidate your understanding of the vocabulary and grammar you learn at school, but also to learn new expressions and cultural information that will help you to achieve a top grade. Having the opportunity to practice your speaking skills with me will also help make you more confident for the oral exams.
