Degree: Modern Languages (Bachelors) - Durham University
Hi! I'm Alexandra, and I'm in my second year at Durham University studying Spanish and Italian.
Why pick me?
From studying AS Italian alongside my A levels I then went on to study second year Italian in my first year! I would like to help students see that no challenge is out of your reach. Languages can be challenging but extremely rewarding and I am prepared to help you on your way to achieving a grade you are proud of!
I have the patience and the drive to tutor and immerse myself in languages: last summer I spent seven weeks in Italy as an au pair teaching young children English and speaking in Italian everyday, and as a result my Italian has improved greatly.
I have studied English literature, Spanish literature and Italian literature all in great detail as part of my A levels, in my first year and in my second year so far, therefore I can give advice on essay writing and analytical skills.
I love languages and literature, I'm hardworking and reliable and I am willing to tailor sessions to the student, personalising them to help students really focus on any difficulties they are having, because this is what I am here for, to help!
If you have any questions or would like to know more about me please feel free to contact me, or book a meet-the-tutor session. I look forward to meeting you!

Understandably, it can be difficult to know when to use por or para, as they are both usually translated as 'for', but this general rule can be very helpful:
Por = motive or cause of an action, a reason
Para = result of an action, an aim or destination
Therefore, it helps to think of por as a prepostion which looks back, and para as a preposition which looks forward
Here are a couple of examples in context:
No pudo ir de compras por estar enfermo (reason)
El colegio no está abierto hoy por la nieve (cause)
El regalo es para mi amigo (destination)
