About me

Hey, I'm Timi and I’m currently on my Year Abroad as part of my Liberal Arts studies at Durham. What I love about this degree is how it allows me to combine my passion for foreign languages and curiosity about the interaction between nations, both on a cultural and a political level – taking modules in Russian, German and International Relations.

Hey, I'm Timi and I’m currently on my Year Abroad as part of my Liberal Arts studies at Durham. What I love about this degree is how it allows me to combine my passion for foreign languages and curiosity about the interaction between nations, both on a cultural and a political level – taking modules in Russian, German and International Relations.


German and I go way back – having attended an Austrian secondary school, I perfected my fluency and pronunciation in a native environment and acquired technical terminology in a variety of fields. Continuing German at university, translation and interpreting classes provided a new and exciting challenge and a room for constant evolvement. Russian however, I’ve picked up in my first year at Durham. So if you’re currently at a beginner/intermediate level, struggling with the complexity of the language – trust me, I know exactly how you feel. Having built up a solid basis for my Russian during 2 intensive years at Durham, I recently spent 4 months living and studying in Tomsk, Russia –giving my linguistic skills an incredible boost and further fuelling my love for the language and its people. I graduated from IB with high 7s across my language classes – English, German and French, and an A in my Extended Essay. I’m happy to help you with anything to do with literary analysis, writing essays, any IB specific coursework, exam techniques, Extended Essay, ToK, UCAS applications and personal statements.

About my sessions

My tutorials, of course, will be tailored to the individual needs and learning preferences of the student. At our initial meeting, we will discuss your current grades, feedback from teachers and anything of particular concern, as well as the outcomes you’d like to achieve. We then can together establish what areas the tutorials should focus on, whether that be grammar, written and oral skills, analysis, essay structure, revision or exam techniques. I’m happy to proof-read, correct and discuss...

My tutorials, of course, will be tailored to the individual needs and learning preferences of the student. At our initial meeting, we will discuss your current grades, feedback from teachers and anything of particular concern, as well as the outcomes you’d like to achieve. We then can together establish what areas the tutorials should focus on, whether that be grammar, written and oral skills, analysis, essay structure, revision or exam techniques. I’m happy to proof-read, correct and discuss any completed work or guide the student through the writing/analysing process in class time. In preparation for specific exams, we will target specific goals, looking at mark schemes. In the learning process, we will discover exactly what works best for your own learning and capitalise upon your natural talents and already existing competences to reach your desired outcomes.


I think we all know a little too well the power a teacher can have over a student's attitude to any given subject. Hence, my main philosophy when it comes to teaching is to make the learning as enjoyable and fascinating of a process as can be. I want to introduce my students to learning techniques traditionally not taught in school – how to learn grammar and vocabulary in an easy and fun way, and perceive the process as effortless rather than daunting.
