About me

Hi, I'm George! I am a Fourth Year Undergraduate at Durham University, studying English Literature and Spanish. I aim to help anyone who would like me to tutor them through interactive, exciting learning, as we all know that sometimes learning new things can be a drag! I spent a year teaching English in a secondary school in Bilbao, Spain - so I completely understand that speaking a foreign language can be really difficult! So, in my tutorials, I hope to help anyone gain the confidence to go out into the wider world and use their skills that will be honed with spoken practice, as well as help with grammar rules, vocabulary or any other issues that any tutee may have! 

Furthermore, I offer tuition in both English and Maths - arguably the two most important subjects taught at school! Both subjects can be difficult, and I endeavour to provide support to those that need help, or would like to stretch their abilities! I am more than happy to cater to any individual's needs, as not everyone learns in the same way! I really would like to help as many people as I can improve their understanding of their subjects, and I hope to do so in a friendly, approachable manner, while effectively helping you to learn! If you need any help in any of the subjects I can teach - do feel free to book a session to get to know me!

About my sessions

I try to make sure that my lessons are really engaging, using the virtual classroom to keep things interesting and get you involved! At the end of every lesson, I'll make sure that we have a review session so you can see what you've learned over my session, how you can use that fantastic new skill, and ways to improve. Learning is a process, and not everyone picks things up at the same speed, or in the same way - my job is to make sure that I find what works for you!

Questions George has answered

Which adjectives do not take the subjunctive in the construction "Es (adjective) que..."

As you will know from A Level Spanish, when you use the construction "Es (adjective) que...", it is very likely that you will need to follow this with a subjunctive verb. However, there are a couple of exceptions, which relate to whether the adjective you are using is one which suggests certainty. To help you remember some adjectives that require the indicative to follow, here is a useful nmemonic: 

 

Verdad (True)

Obvio (Obvious)

Cierto (Certain)/ Claro (Clear)

Evidente (Evident) 

Seguro (Sure/Safe)

 

This spells VOCES, which should help you to remember which verbs to use if you are uncertain of using the subjunctive in spoken or written situations, while still maintaining great style!!
