About me

Hi I'm Madison, I am a friendly and experienced tutor and student at the University of Edinburgh, who likes to instill confidence. I am currently studying abroad at the University of Pennsylvania, where I am taking a graduate level course and have experienced different learning styles. This experience has already given me another dimension to my learning and has shown me how to help others in an open and encouraging way. During the summer I worked at an online education company (MindEdge, Inc), where I built up an understanding of how online education and its advantages.

The aspect of teaching that gives me the most satisfaction is when my students start to make progress and feel empowered. As well as ironing out difficulties, I can help students change their approach to learning languages and literature and help them break down subjects for easier understanding. During sessions, I am able to listen to their ideas and help them understand what the examiners are really looking for.

I can identify areas of weakness and provide tailor-made study solutions, with the overall goal of changing the student’s whole attitude towards the subject. From my own experience and having tutored since the age of 16, I understand that many students suffer anxiety and lack motivation, when struggling with a subject. My approach is to help see where their strengths lie and how to build on them for exam success and beyond. 

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! through the website and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I am satisfied with Madison's English teaching.

Janet (Parent) May 18 2014

I found Madison to be both a punctual and reliable tutor. She was able to give a great deal of helpful advice regarding the approach to Latin translations and was always willing to mark any work done outside of the session. The work she marked was thorough which was beneficial, enabling my niece to see exactly where she was making errors. Madison was always very patient making her student feel at ease. Without Madison's my niece would have been anxious about her Latin exam, her tutoring has been much appreciated.

The sequence of tenses explains why subjunctives in subordinate clauses are in the tenses that they are in, and it provides insight into how to translate the clause. Latin has two sequences of tense- primary and secondary.

The primary sequence includes forms of the indicative whose action is not yet complete. The secondary sequence, also called "historic", includes forms of the indicative whose action is complete.

Subjunctives in primary and secondary sequence are determined by two things: whether the verb in the main clause is primary or secondary, and whether the action of the verb in the subordinate clause is seen as being accomplished before or at the same time as the action of the verb in the main clause.
