About me

I am currently studying French and German at University College London and I am currently on my year abroad in Paris. Studying languages not only unlocks new career possibilities; new cultures and experiences are opened up, whilst enabling you to meet new people.

I am currently studying French and German at University College London and I am currently on my year abroad in Paris. Studying languages not only unlocks new career possibilities; new cultures and experiences are opened up, whilst enabling you to meet new people. The study of French and German has already greatly enriched my life, having enabled me to undertake various experiences that would not have been possible without studying them. I have personally never struggled with exams, although I empathise that they are not for everyone. I do find language exams slightly trickier to prepare for, as there are not always concrete topics which can be prepared. I believe the best way to prepare for such exams is to gain a rounded understanding of the language in question, meaning that you are capable of comprehending any text or listening passage that may contain unfamiliar vocabulary. Surrounding yourself on a daily basis with the language is the best way to gain this rounded understanding; whether that be reading or listening to a newspaper article every day, or following social media channels containing the target language, regular exposure outside of the classroom is key in language development. Outside of my studies, I spend the majority of my time running, which helps to keep me sane when things get stressful! I am a Leyton Orient supporter, and hold a particular interest for German football, which is a big motivating factor in my study of German!

About my sessions

The ideas for content for the Online Lessons will initially stem from the student, who will identify their strengths and weaknesses, which will serve as an important reference for future lessons. I will ask the student what it is that they find difficult about a certain aspect of the language, which will form the basis of the Online Lesson. I will then use examples to demonstrate and explain this particular point; as a visual learner, I benefit from first being shown an example, which I can t...

The ideas for content for the Online Lessons will initially stem from the student, who will identify their strengths and weaknesses, which will serve as an important reference for future lessons. I will ask the student what it is that they find difficult about a certain aspect of the language, which will form the basis of the Online Lesson. I will then use examples to demonstrate and explain this particular point; as a visual learner, I benefit from first being shown an example, which I can then follow, however Lessons will be adapted depending on what type of learner the student is. Collating examples and questions will form an important part of my preparation for my Online Lessons, guiding the student and myself through the lesson. Students will be able to achieve their goals by successfully accomplishing exercises on topics or grammar points that they did not previously understand, therefore representing progress. Past paper and vocabulary practice will not only serve as a means of measuring progress with occasional assessed exam style questions or vocabulary tests, but also as key revision materials, as they give the best indication of the questions featured in exams. However, we do not learn languages simply to pass exams; conversational discussions on any pre-chosen subject of interest from the student will encourage students to apply their studies to potential real-world conversations, which will broaden their study of languages beyond the classroom.
