About me


Hello, I´m Clorrie and I have just finished my second year of studying Modern Languages and Cultures (French and Spanish) at Durham University, where I achieved an overall First Class in my first year. I am absolutely dedicated to teaching as a longterm vocation and I have taught Spanish in a school, as well as teaching English online for four years on a casual basis and I have been teaching through MyTutor for almost a year and a half. Furthermore, I was selected to participate in a Teach First Insight Event in London where I attended networking meetings with teachers with the aim of promoting education equality and I undertook a variety of teacher training. I am extremely passionate about languages and I currently live in Barcelona where I am undertaking an internship in Marketing. In this role, I use my French and Spanish on a daily basis which means that I am able to bring real life resources to my tutoring sessions in order to not only prepare my students for their examinations, but also for using their language skills in the real world. I have taught a variety of exam boards from GCSE to adult learners undertaking Open University studies and I am therefore one of the most experienced tutors, achieving a Premium status and participating in the Schools Programme. Next year, I will be an English teacher in a French school, too, so teaching will be my fulltime vocation.

I hope to be able to start helping you straight away!

About my sessions

I always conduct my lessons with the fact in mind that every student is different. Therefore, I dedicate a lot of time to preparing my own resources which are tailored to the individual student´s level and interests. I use a variety of real target language materials in order to encourage my students to practise their language skills outside of the classroom. However, I also include some traditional grammar exercises. I have also taught numerous exam boards for GCSE History and I always conduct the relevant reading beforehand to make sure that I am prepared to teach each topic. Although History is not my degree, as part of my culture modules I write a lot of History essays so therefore I am confident with teaching the GCSE specification to a high standard. Finally, my students have told me that they have found my mentoring sessions extremely useful and helping your child to develop general study skills such as time management and offering them extra support for job and university applications can help them to succeed in an evermore competitive environment.


I believe that communication with parents is vital and I therefore send a review to parents measuring their child´s progress after each lesson. I regularly send students and parents messages and I encourage everybody to contact me whenever they wish.

Olivia Parent from East Grinstead Lesson review 24 Oct '18, 09:00

24 Oct, 2018

Clorrie is absolutely great! She makes the lesson fun, prepares for them well, and has good intuition of what you need to do. She is also encouraging about unlocking the doubts. I look forward to the next lesson.....

Clorrie's reply

Thank you very much for the review, Olivia. It has been great fun speaking to you in French and discussing a lot of interesting cultural topics which could come up in any part of your exam. I feel very positive about our future lessons and that we are making good progress in time for your exams. Please message me should you need any extra help with anything.

Marlene Parent from Bromley Lesson review 14 Oct '18, 10:00

14 Oct, 2018

Very pleased with the progress my daughter is making in Spanish. Clorrie provides very good feedback to the parent after each session. My daughter is pleased with her progress as well as the opportunity to practice speaking Spanish more than a classroom setting allows.

24 Oct, 2018

Clorrie's reply

Thank you for the review, Marlene, and I am very glad that your daughter is enjoying the lessons. I have been able to push her further so that she achieves the results that she deserves at GCSE. Often this is the case that the more talented students do not receive the help that they need at school to really excel and hit the top grades. Thank you for always reading and replying to my reviews and communicating with me so that we can help your daughter as much as possible.

Christabel Student Lesson review 8 Oct '18, 18:30

8 Oct, 2018

The structure and planning in Clorrie's lessons are truly amazing. She creates powerpoints for each student and tailors it to your needs. When confused, she simply takes her time to clearly and kindly explain it to you. Would recommend again and again!

24 Oct, 2018

Clorrie's reply

I really enjoyed our first tutorial together, Christabel. You are a very organised student and you engaged really well with the topic of social media. I can't wait to hear your ideas next lesson when we debate the advantages/ disadvantages of social media. If you ever need any help, please feel free to message me.

Questions Clorrie has answered

When should I use the subjunctive in Spanish?

The subjunctive is not a tense, but rather a mood. We don't tend to use it a lot in English but in Spanish it is used to convey feelings of doubt or emotion. Here is a useful anagram to help you to remember when you should use the subjunctive: W- wishes E- emotions I- impersonal expressions R- recommendations D- doubt O- ójala In Spanish we use the present subjunctive when talking about actions in the present and future and the impersonal subjunctive when talking about actions in the past or when writing a si clause. It is important to especially remember that verbs such as 'pensar' normally do not trigger the subjunctive but when they are made negative e.g. 'no pienso que' they trigger the subjunctive because they introduce a sense of doubt. This is a common mistake among learners. Also try to learn some key examples of expressions which will trigger the subjunctive to use in your writing exercises in the exam or in speakings. Some easy set expressions include: sea como sea (be as it may be) and que yo sea (as far as I know). This is a simple way to increase your marks considerably.
