About me

Hi, 

I'm Jess, I am 23 and a graduate of German, Spanish and Portuguese from the University of Nottingham. During my time at University, I have been a private online tutor for students in Hong Kong, an English tutor in Spain, a volunteer teacher in Brazil and a German assistant in a seondary school in the UK. I have taught students of all ages so I can tailor your sessions to suit your ability and the qualification you are studying for! Whether it be grammar or pronunciation that you are struggling with, I am happy to cater the sessions to complement your school/college work and help you progress on a more personal level. Languages are all about practice so I'll make sure that our sessions focus on reading, writing and speaking so that you can build on all of these skills

Looking forward to meeting you!

Questions Jessica has answered

How do I use the imperfect subjunctive?

The imperfect subjunctive has a variety of uses:

1) You can use the imperfect subjunctive when the independent clause in a sentence (main clause) refers to the past. 

'Quise que me ayudaras a entender el subjuntivo' 

I wanted you to help me understand the subjunctive. 

 

2) You can also use the IS when the independent clause refers to your current emotions/doubts about something which has happened in the past. 

' No me parece que la boda fuera tan grande.' 

It doesn't seem to me that the wedding was so big.

 

3) You can also use the IS to indicicate when you hope for something but  it is unlikely to happen. (always Ojalá) 

Ojalá pudiera estar contigo hoy. 

If only I could be with you today. 

 

4) The IS is used in 'If' clauses, when the statement is something which is unlikely to happen. 

'Si yo ganara la lotería, viajaría por todo el mundo' 

If i won the lottery, I would travel all around the world. 

 

5) Using only the verbs deber, querer, or poder, you can use the imperfect subjunctive to make a very polite suggestion or formal request.
