About me

Hello!

In July I graduated from Durham University with a degree in Liberal Arts (Philosophy and Spanish). I am a friendly, enthusiastic and have experience in tutoring!

My strength lies in tutoring Spanish, German and English as a foreign language. I studied Spanish at University, I am a bilingual German speaker and as an English native speaker I am passionate about the English language.

Hello!

In July I graduated from Durham University with a degree in Liberal Arts (Philosophy and Spanish). I am a friendly, enthusiastic and have experience in tutoring!

My strength lies in tutoring Spanish, German and English as a foreign language. I studied Spanish at University, I am a bilingual German speaker and as an English native speaker I am passionate about the English language.

Another subject I can definitely help with is Philosophy, which I studied at University and think is the best subject in the world.

I also did the International Baccalaureate at school and found it tricky, which means that I have lots of tips and tricks on how to do really well! So, if you are struggling with the IB, such as the core modules (TOK and EE), then I will definitely be able to help. Also, if you are studying Maths, English, Biology, Spanish, German or Philosophy, then I have lots of things to help guide you through.

In terms of my tutoring experience more specifically, I have one-to-one tutoring experience for GCSEs and A-level and I also worked in an after-school programme that helped students with their homework.

I have the time at the moment to dedicate to tutoring, which means that I have lots of availability to help you out. Please send me a message if you would like to find out more about me and if you would like to arrange a first lesson. I am looking forward to finding out how I can help you!

About my sessions

My sessions will really depend on what you are looking for and how you learn best! I am happy to adjust to your style of learning in order for you to get the most out of these lessons. For me to be able to do this, I will ask how you learn best and in what areas specifically you are looking to improve.

I also like to set out a plan at the beginning of the lesson on how we can structure our time together, which ultimately also means that you can get the most out of it.

I also like to set out a plan at the beginning of the lesson on how we can structure our time together, which ultimately also means that you can get the most out of it.

Once we have had a couple of lessons together it will be easy to create a plan of what things we will cover. It is really important to me that you bring any questions, essays or homework to these sessions if you need any further assistance! I always ask if you have any subject related questions that you were not able to ask in class, as these are the sessions, which are tailored to your learning.

In an ideal world and if you have time before the next session, I will give you areas/tasks to focus on, which will help you improve outside of these sessions and that we then discuss the following time.

But other than that, I like to keep my sessions informal, relaxed and as enjoyable as possible! :)

She was super kind, friendly and eager to help! My Internet broke off several times however, she was so kind about it and gave me extra time at the end of the lesson to make up for the time we had lost.

Katherine has reviewed several important German grammar points with me, which has definitely helped my understanding, and has completed some practice GCSE speaking questions with me to develop my exam technique! I love being able to talk to her in German, it is really rewarding. Thank you so much :)
