About me

Hey! My name is Roxanna and I am passionate about the learning of languages. Being born in a foreign country myself and learning English as my second language, this has broadened the horizons for me as I have realised how learning a language does not just mean learning vocabulary. It is actually the learning of a few languages simultaneously (dialects) as well as the traditions, customs and every nation's uniqueness.

Hey! My name is Roxanna and I am passionate about the learning of languages. Being born in a foreign country myself and learning English as my second language, this has broadened the horizons for me as I have realised how learning a language does not just mean learning vocabulary. It is actually the learning of a few languages simultaneously (dialects) as well as the traditions, customs and every nation's uniqueness.

I am currently studying at Durham University reading Arabic and French. I study Spanish on the side of my degree and I have a part-time job as well as this tutoring job. My plan is to successfully finish my degree and do a PGCE course which will launch me into a teaching career.

It is fascinating to actually immerse yourself wholly in the culture of a nation. For instance, when looking at every specific country in Europe: they are all distinct and unique; this is not known until you take an interest in the particular country and start learning about it and I am here to teach you about French culture and the language. I also specialise in tutoring Spanish and I can provide help with Arabic.

I hope this is useful information for potential students and I look forward commencing this language experience!

À bientôt!

About my sessions

Each session will begin with a 10 minute revision of the main points learnt the previous lesson which should encourage the student to look over their notes in advance (this will help them memorise them better). This will also be the starting point of a conversation in the target language.

Tutorials will be delivered in a 60 minute slot by the end of which the student should feel confident in talking about the particular topic. We will use the online board to write the different topics d...

Each session will begin with a 10 minute revision of the main points learnt the previous lesson which should encourage the student to look over their notes in advance (this will help them memorise them better). This will also be the starting point of a conversation in the target language.

Tutorials will be delivered in a 60 minute slot by the end of which the student should feel confident in talking about the particular topic. We will use the online board to write the different topics discussed and if the student has questions they can all be addressed on there. I will create additional materials if the student feel as though they need to have extra work.

Firstly, I will have to assess the student through a range of exercises in order to see what gaps there are in their knowledge as well as their strengths and weaknesses. Of course, the student will have a specific goal in mind (A* grade, improving speaking skills etc) so I will guide the lessons towards achieving the desired goal of the student.

Progress is measured by weekly mini-assessments such as vocabulary questions or even more fun activities such as listening to a song in French/Spanish or challenging the student to give as many words on a certain topic as possible in 60 seconds. We will also have different mini homework tasks to hand in which will form the basis of my assessment of their skills throughout the academic year.

My son was struggling with Spanish and was looking likely to not pass this GCSE. He was unconfident and hesitant with speaking and the extra lesson that was put in after school to help with this coincided with another lesson he was taking. So in January we decided to enlist the assistance of Roxana on Mytutor to try and ensure a pass. We requested that she just spent the hour working on conversation. She was brilliant. We are all absolutely thrilled as not only did my son pass he got a 6. He went from struggling to confident in less than 6 months. I would not hesitate to recommend Roxana. Useful

Roxana's reply

Thank you very much, Karen! It has been my pleasure to help such a motivated young man with bags of potential. I appreciate your honest review and it is also Alex's merit for the amount of work he put into it. Hope he enjoys the rest of his studies in Spanish!

I am very grateful for Roxana's input. My daughter lacks confidence even when speaking in English, but after a couple of sessions with Roxana, she was actively looking forward to her next tutorial, and both her French teachers commented on her progress. I was impressed by Roxana's ability to gauge what my daughter needed, and offer constructive help, over only four tutorials.
