About me

Hi!


I'm currently in my fourth year of studying French, Spanish and Arabic at the university of St. Andrews, and I have recently returned from my year abroad in Valencia, Spain. I absolutely love languages and I hope that because of that I can help students not only to improve their language skills, in whatever areas they may need some help, but also to make learning languages more fun, so that they actually enjoy our sessions (which makes all the difference).

Hi!


I'm currently in my fourth year of studying French, Spanish and Arabic at the university of St. Andrews, and I have recently returned from my year abroad in Valencia, Spain. I absolutely love languages and I hope that because of that I can help students not only to improve their language skills, in whatever areas they may need some help, but also to make learning languages more fun, so that they actually enjoy our sessions (which makes all the difference). In any case, I love to help students to achieve their full potential and grow in confidence in my subjects.

About my sessions

My lessons are very much tailored to the person I am teaching and their individual strengths and weaknesses, and of course their end goal. During the first lesson, I will assess the ability in each of the four key areas (listening, reading, speaking and writing) and look at where the strengths and weaknesses of each individual student lie. Once I have gauged the areas that need improvement, I will focus my attention on improving these areas, whilst maintaining the strengths elsewhere. One of...

My lessons are very much tailored to the person I am teaching and their individual strengths and weaknesses, and of course their end goal. During the first lesson, I will assess the ability in each of the four key areas (listening, reading, speaking and writing) and look at where the strengths and weaknesses of each individual student lie. Once I have gauged the areas that need improvement, I will focus my attention on improving these areas, whilst maintaining the strengths elsewhere. One of the most important things for me with languages is confidence. So often, I see students who know their stuff, they just lack the confidence to speak and utilise what they have learned, so above all I will work on the confidence to use their language skills without fear of making mistakes. Above all, I will be flexible in how I deliver my lessons, and the content of those lessons so that the student gains the maximum benefit, and hopefully feels prepared for whatever assessment or exam they face next. I have 10+ years experience doing assessments and exams, I know just how daunting they are. So, if I can make it any easier for you and help you to feel more confident facing them, I've done what I set out to do!

A great language teacher! Lucy plans her lessons to suit my son and gives short tests just to make sure that my son understands what he has learnt. She explains grammar very clearly, her pronunciation is excellent, very effective way of teaching, my son enjoys her teaching very much.
