About me

Hi!


I'm currently a student at the University of Durham studying Spanish and Russian. To complement my studies, I've been part of the University's Hispanic and Russian-Speaking Societies since I started, and have loved meeting people from all over the world both during my time here and abroad.

Hi!


I'm currently a student at the University of Durham studying Spanish and Russian. To complement my studies, I've been part of the University's Hispanic and Russian-Speaking Societies since I started, and have loved meeting people from all over the world both during my time here and abroad. Studying languages was a no-brainer for me, having absolutely loved them since taking my first Spanish class all the way back in Year 7. Having had classes and exams in French, Spanish, Russian and even some in Chinese, I understand how daunting learning a language can be - it's something you have to build up over time, not just something you can quickly revise the night before an exam.


Having had a lot of opportunities to practice language tutoring, including teaching at a school in Russia as well as mentoring Spanish GCSE students at a local high school, I have seen first-hand the progress students can make when they are genuinely engaged in a language. I believe that well-structured and immersive lessons are a great foundation on which students can build their language skills - skills which are becoming more and more sought-after in today's job market - and hope that I can inspire in students the same love of languages that I myself have come to develop over the years.

About my sessions

If students don't feel as though they have progressed in some way by the end of their session, I haven't done my job properly.


After learning a little bit about you, where you are in terms of your level of Spanish, as well as anything you'd like to focus on in the session (be it an upcoming vocab test you have on 'las vacaciones' or your approaching oral exam discussing 'mis prácticas laborales'), I will plan sessions in advance to ensure you get...

If students don't feel as though they have progressed in some way by the end of their session, I haven't done my job properly.


After learning a little bit about you, where you are in terms of your level of Spanish, as well as anything you'd like to focus on in the session (be it an upcoming vocab test you have on 'las vacaciones' or your approaching oral exam discussing 'mis prácticas laborales'), I will plan sessions in advance to ensure you get the most out of them.


During the session, things will be taken entirely at a pace the student feels comfortable with, all within an encouraging environment. I really want students to feel as though they have a great deal of input when it comes to determining the course of the session - I'd love to hear any of your suggestions, ideas or queries about things related to what you're studying.


During the final couple of minutes of the session, students are free to give me an idea of what they would like to study during the next session, as well as ask any questions they may still have concerning what we have recently studied.
