About me

Previous experience as an IB student has meant that I have experience in a variety of subjects from History to French and am familiar with the IBO Board and current syllabus. Moreover, French is an integral part of my dual degree course and consequently my dominion of both the written and spoken language should be equal to that of your French teachers. I offer tutoring in the oral, comprehension-based and written aspects of the French exam as well as assistance with the other essay subjects  (English Literature, French, Psychology and History), and am always available for conversation classes in either of my two languages: Spanish and French, the aim of which is to help students improve their fluency and to give them a more 'up to date' knowledge of the language; conversation style, pattern, slang and colloquialisms used by native speakers. One of the main aims of my tutorials is to provide highly personalised, engaging and effective help, tailored to each of my students' particular learning patterns. As a native Spanish speaker and trilingual student I am also familiar with the issues that students learning a second or third language often face, and am able to succesfully tackle and resolve them through a variety of  methods.

Questions Beatriz has answered

What effects does the neo-colonialist movement have on modern day literature? (i.e. Michael Ondaatje, Arundhati Roy)

Neo-colonialism, in literature, is characterised, according to Lyotard's conception of the movement by a departure from the traditional unitary, or linear narrative. In following with the ouverture of dialogue between ethnic and political minorities and cultural diversification endemic to neo-colonialism, neo-colonialist literature characteristically displays a use of fragmented and multiple narratives. This can be seen clearly in Arundhati Roy's 'The God of Small Things' where several narratives are used in order to convey more than one character's thoughts, emotions and stories. Accordingly; the same technique, along with the use of fragmentation is used by Michael Ondaatje in his autobiographical novel 'Running in the Family'. The use of these techniques, or literary devices, by both authors serves as an illustration of two of the neo-colonialist movement's main ideas; namely that it is nigh on impossible to tell the a whole story by using a single linear narrative, and, that in order for a narrative to be 'complete', the reader ought to be able to begin at any point in the story. Subsequently, neo-colonialism in literature signifies a departure from traditional single-strand narratives, and a departure from linear narratives (beggining, middle, end.). As a reflection of its political counterpart, the neocolonial literary movement has greatly impacted what we now think of as contemporary or modern literature. Further examples are Margaret Atwood's 'Cat's Eye'.
