About me

I study German and Portuguese at the University of Bristol.

I've been learning German for 10 years, and have had a passion for it since the very start. I believe what sets me apart from many other German tutors is my experience of the country, the people and, most importantly, the language.

I study German and Portuguese at the University of Bristol.

I've been learning German for 10 years, and have had a passion for it since the very start. I believe what sets me apart from many other German tutors is my experience of the country, the people and, most importantly, the language. For five years in a row I participated in my secondary school's German exchange programme, which allowed me to learn how Germans actually converse with each other, instead of just learning from a school textbook. This provided me a deeper understanding of the language, which I hope to pass on to my students, along with a passion for language learning. 

I've only been learning Portuguese for 3 years, but what I lack in experience I make up for in passion. Additionally, my Portuguese tutors at Bristol University have all been native speakers, which has resulted in me learning the language properly, with a greater understanding of the fundamental grammar rules. 

Having taken both Government and Politics and History at A Level (and achieving As in both), my knowledge of both fields is extensive to say the least. 

Throughout my education I've always prided myself on my ability to perform well in exams, due in part to my effective revision strategies.

About my sessions

As I believe as every student is different, I can't lay out a general plan for my tutorials, as I will tailor each one to everyone's individual needs. Having said that, I will most likely evenly split time between revising/learning the key areas and going through past papers to help prepare for upcoming exams, as well as explaining the best revision techniques for when you're studying on your own. 

Whatever your goal, we will achieve by logically working through problems...

Whatever your goal, we will achieve by logically working through problems and developing understanding of fundamental topics. 

Above all, I will try to make learning the subject more enjoyable and less stressful.
