About me

I am currently studying French and Italian at the University of York and I absolutely love it. I love learning about French culture and language and I now even enjoy learning French grammar! As part of my degree, I only started learning Italian at the start of my degree and the progress I have made is unbelievable which makes me want to help and teach languages even more because learning a new language and/or improving one you already know is such a rewarding and fulfilling feeling.

I am currently studying French and Italian at the University of York and I absolutely love it. I love learning about French culture and language and I now even enjoy learning French grammar! As part of my degree, I only started learning Italian at the start of my degree and the progress I have made is unbelievable which makes me want to help and teach languages even more because learning a new language and/or improving one you already know is such a rewarding and fulfilling feeling. I always used to put myself under a lot of pressure when it came to exams but dealing with exam stress and pressure is something I have improved in massively. I used to have a maths tutor who not only taught me the subject but most importantly used to tell me to see exams as a game which helped me deal with exams effectively. This is something I would like to help students with as well, as I want them to be able to not be afraid of exams and to actually enjoy the experience. I want them to learn about the subject because they love it and are interested in it, not just to pass an exam. I want to be able to share my passion and love for languages with other students. Being half Spanish and half Turkish, I have been brought up surrounded by languages therefore I would want to share my enthusiasm for languages with other students and ensure that they enjoy what they are learning.

I will ensure I am extremely familiar with the exam specifications for each subject in order to ensure the students are learning the right information they need for their exams. I am able to help with anything from speaking practice, to improving reading and writing skills also. I will help students achieve their goals by ensuring that they are enjoying tuitions and inspire them to enjoy what they are learning about. I will clarify any misunderstandings and iron out any mistakes in order to ensure the students are doing their absolute best. I will measure progress by giving them interactive mini quizzes every once in a while with absolutely no pressure associated to them in order for us to know exactly what they need to work on. I think it is important for me to be extremely passionate and enthusiastic about the subject in order to encourage learning. Also, it is important for students to see what they can achieve in life by succeeding in their subject so that they can be encouraged to work towards wanting to do well.

My son has had a great tutor before Salin and was very reluctant to change. He is on his way to being fluent in Spanish, but we wanted someone to ensure he understands how to approach the GCSE exams. After trying a couple of different tutors, he is working with Salin with a GCSE focus and is engaged and enjoying things as much as before. Thanks for all the good work.
