About me

About me:

Hello! My name is Summer and I’m an undergraduate student studying French, Spanish and German, three languages that I have studied for several years and I would love to use that experience to help and guide you with your own language learning, both at GCSE and A-Level standard.

Having also studied Psychology and completed an Extended Project for my A-Levels, I can also guide you in improving your learning strategies in both subject areas.

I’ve previously helped GCSE students to progress with their Spanish when I was an A-Level student and last year I gained valuable teaching skills whilst I was working as an au pair in Spain.

The tutorials:

The tutorials will be both informative, engaging and varied, since the tutorial will differ according to whether we’re covering the oral, reading or written part of the examination.

For example, grammar of different languages may often seem daunting, but I will use different materials to initially explain the basic concepts and as soon as you understand, we will progress to practice questions, as I believe the best way to grasp grammar is to practice, practice, practice!

Asides from our tutorials, I will supply materials and means to encourage further immersion in the language in question.

Essentially, you will decide what we cover during the tutorial, and I will prepare the best way how to cover it!

What next?

Please do not hesitate to send me a “Webmail” or a “Meet the Tutor Session” if you have any questions (both accessible via this website). It would be beneficial to let me know what exam board and element(s) that you’re struggling with at this point.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Summer has answered

When do you use the imperfect and when do you use the preterite?

Trying to differentiate between the use of these two tenses can often prove challenging for Spanish students. However, there are some key points that may help you when trying to decide which tense to use.  The Imperfect is used:  1) To state an action in the past which is habitual.      E.g....

Trying to differentiate between the use of these two tenses can often prove challenging for Spanish students. However, there are some key points that may help you when trying to decide which tense to use. 

The Imperfect is used: 

1) To state an action in the past which is habitual.

     E.g. Iba al supermercado todos los viernes. 

2) To describe mental states in the past.

     E.g. No sabía lo que había pasado. 

3) To provide descriptions in the past. For example, what a person was like or what th weather was like.

     E.g. Mi bisabuela era bastante baja. 

4) To present an action in the past which was ongoing or in progress. 

     E.g. Yo trabajaba mucho para conseguir lo que quería. 

The Preterite is used: 

1) To state an action in the past which has been completed.

    E.g. Comí el helado.

2) To present a set of past actions in sequence.

    E.g.  Fui al cine, visité a mi amigo y luego hablé a mi madre. 

3) To demonstrate the beginning or the end of an action/ state, or else present a change of action/ state. 

    E.g. Me puse rojo.

4) To indicate that an action has interrupted a previous action that was in progress (which is normally presented in the imperfect).

    E.g. Mientras su hermana trabajaba, fue a la piscina.
