About me

About Me: I am a second-year MFL student at Durham University, studying Spanish and Russian (ab initio). I have always had a great love of languages and am fascinated by them, and I hope to inspire the same enthusiasm in you during our tutorials. I have had previous experience teaching French and Spanish to Year 6 and 7 pupils, so I have little problem engaging and helping students. I have also had some experience in tutoring maths to GCSE and A Level students.

About my sessions

The Sessions: To begin with, I want to get a feel for which areas of the subject you are and aren't confident in, so we can concentrate on the areas that you're less confident with. For languages, I will help you with both grammar and vocabulary, and analysis of literature/film. Towards the exam period, we will go through past paper questions, and I'll guide you through how best to tackle the paper (just don't forget to tell me your exam board at the beginning!). We'll move at your pace, and you will guide what we cover. I'm not just here to tutor you; I want to build your confidence in the subject, and help you if you feel overwhelmed by your schoolwork. Don't hesitate to send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' if you have any questions or queries. I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Charley has answered

How do you form the present subjunctive?

There is a very simple way of forming the present subjunctive in French; take the 3rd person plural present conjugation of a verb (e.g. prendre -> prennent), then remove the 'ent' ending (so 'prendre' in the present subjunctive would be 'je prenne', 'tu prennes', 'il prenne' etc.). However, not all verbs follow this formula, so there are some irregulars. It is important to remember the present subjunctive conjugations for the following verbs (also known as 'the Big 4'): avoir, être, aller, and faire. They conjugate as follows; Avoir J'aie Tu aies Il ait Nous ayons Vous ayez Ils aient Etre Je sois Tu sois Il soit Nous soyons Vous soyez Ils soient Aller J'aille Tu ailles Il aille Nous allions Vous alliez Ils aillent *N.B. for oral exams: the pronunciation of 'aie' and 'aille' are quite different, so make sure not to get them mixed up! 'J'aie' is pronounced a lot like 'j'ai', whereas 'aille' is pronounced like 'eye' in English.There is a very simple way of forming the present subjunctive in French; take the 3rd person plural present conjugation of a verb (e.g. prendre -> prennent), then remove the 'ent' ending (so 'prendre' in the present subjunctive would be 'je prenne', 'tu prennes', 'il prenne' etc.).

When do I use the subjunctive?

If you ever question when you should use the subjunctive, remember the acronym 'WEIRDO': Wishes, Emotions, Impersonal Expressions, Recommendations, Doubt/Denial (e.g. 'no pienso que', 'no creo que' etc.), and Ójala (which means 'to wish'). The subjunctive is also used to command someone to do something, or to ask someone to do something, where we would normally use an infinitive in English. For example, "I want you to go to the shop" translates to "Quiero que vayas a la tienda".If you ever question when you should use the subjunctive, remember the acronym 'WEIRDO': Wishes, Emotions, Impersonal Expressions, Recommendations, Doubt/Denial (e.g. 'no pienso que', 'no creo que' etc.), and Ójala (which means 'to wish').
