About me

Hello! I'm Bennett and I studied at the Queen's College, Oxford, from which I just graduated with a BA in French and Spanish with First Class Honours. I love foreign languages and everything about them. My studies of these two languages have given me countless opportunities to discover the literature and culture associated with them. From conversing with the locals on a trip to Provence to grappling with medieval Spanish poetry, there is always a rewarding challenge when it comes to t...

Hello! I'm Bennett and I studied at the Queen's College, Oxford, from which I just graduated with a BA in French and Spanish with First Class Honours. I love foreign languages and everything about them. My studies of these two languages have given me countless opportunities to discover the literature and culture associated with them. From conversing with the locals on a trip to Provence to grappling with medieval Spanish poetry, there is always a rewarding challenge when it comes to these two languages, and my experience has been overwhelmingly positive.

In essence, as a tutor, my aim is to help you achieve your very best in your exams, and I want to do this in a way that both gives you all the tools you need to get the best grade and truly engage you with the language. I remember well the challenges of exam preparation, feeling as if I would never be able to learn everything, or that there was no way to get better, and my approach will help you realise that this is not the case! The course at Oxford has given me a rigorous grounding in the most fiendish grammar French and Spanish have to offer, and I was the best-performing student in my year in the Spanish exams and 2nd overall for all Modern Languages, so you can rest assured that I ‘know my stuff’!

About my sessions

If you have decided to work with me, together we will work out some concrete goals. Maybe your verb conjugation really needs some work, or you want to get better at the writing component of the exam – whatever your priorities are, we can get straight to them and tackle them methodically, going over the theory and then putting it into practice. We can draw up a timetable that incorporates all the particular areas for improvement you choose, as well as opportunities for seeing how you're ma...

If you have decided to work with me, together we will work out some concrete goals. Maybe your verb conjugation really needs some work, or you want to get better at the writing component of the exam – whatever your priorities are, we can get straight to them and tackle them methodically, going over the theory and then putting it into practice. We can draw up a timetable that incorporates all the particular areas for improvement you choose, as well as opportunities for seeing how you're managing with the different constituent parts of the exam. This will involve both plenty of practice questions and real life examples of texts or videos in the target language (which could be about your personal interests), which we will work through together so that you can get a feel of the language in action and learn useful phrases. I will also show you the tricks I myself used for expanding my vocabulary, and importantly, learning it so that it sticks!
