About me

I am a recent graduate of German & Italian from The Queen's College, Oxford. I took up Italian from scratch when I came to university, so the experience of learning an entirely new language, and one that I had very little foundation in (apart from GCSE French) is still fresh, so I can completely empathise with anyone who's struggling with languages. It is a real shame that not enough talented people aren't encouraged to pursue either languages or Oxbridge, and I am very keen t...

I am a recent graduate of German & Italian from The Queen's College, Oxford. I took up Italian from scratch when I came to university, so the experience of learning an entirely new language, and one that I had very little foundation in (apart from GCSE French) is still fresh, so I can completely empathise with anyone who's struggling with languages. It is a real shame that not enough talented people aren't encouraged to pursue either languages or Oxbridge, and I am very keen to help this in any way I can. Outside of academics, I am very active in university theatre, having produced, stage managed and marketing managed a total of 12 shows over my two years at Oxford, and I am also very open to discussions about university experiences, as well as a more academic study of plays and theatre. During my year abroad next year, I worked as an English Language Assistant in an Italian school. I have experience in teaching various age groups, and I am willing to teach to any language ability. My primary goal in tutorials is making you more confident and comfortable in speaking modern languages, as this is where I think the most enjoyment in learning languages comes from.

About my sessions

In your tutorials with me, I want the student to guide me to the areas that they feel need the most help and I want them to be very much something that you guide the direction of. I can provide formal grammar teaching and guide you through exercises and work your teacher has provided, or I can help you practice your speaking skills (which I know are often the most daunting part of learning a language!). The key to language learning is often practicing it as much as you possibly can, and it is...

In your tutorials with me, I want the student to guide me to the areas that they feel need the most help and I want them to be very much something that you guide the direction of. I can provide formal grammar teaching and guide you through exercises and work your teacher has provided, or I can help you practice your speaking skills (which I know are often the most daunting part of learning a language!). The key to language learning is often practicing it as much as you possibly can, and it is this idea of practicing your weakest areas that I want to focus on in my tutorials. I am currently studying at Oxford, and to this end I am also very willing to talk through university applications - for any subject - and especially Oxbridge preparation. I would also be able to provide guidance with regards to the Oxford Modern Languages Admission Test (MLAT), in both the sections for your A Level language as well as a beginner's language, if you're interested in starting a new language at university.
