About me

Hi, I’m Tom, a recent Biology graduate from Oxford University.

Tutoring experience:

I have tutored A-level, GCSE and IB Maths, Chemistry and Biology in 1:1 tutorials for the past 3 years.

I find tutoring very rewarding and I am motivated by my students' progress and improvement.

What I have to give:

In doing my own exams, I have realised that the key to doing well is being well-prepared. I am keen to transfer what I have learnt and show my students the best strategies, and most efficient ways, to prepare intelligently.

In addition, I have realised that interest in the subject matter is very important for motivation. I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for Maths and Science in order to motivate students.

If you would like to organise tutorials, please arrange a free ‘meet the tutor’ session first.

I look forward to meeting you!

Tom.

Questions Thomas has answered

(1) How is the imperfect tense formed in French? (2) What are 2 exceptions to the rule?

(1)

The imperfect tense is formed by taking the nous form of the present tense. For the verb 'jouer' (to play), for example, the nous form is 'jouons' (as in nous jouons).

The -ons is removed from the verb, leaving 'jou' and the imperfect endings (ais, ais, ait, ions, iez, aient) are added: 

je   jouais

tu                         jouais
il/ elle/ il              jouait
nous                    jouions
vous                    jouiez
ils/ elles              jouaient

 

(2)

2 exceptions to this rule are commencer and manger. 

Verbs like manger add an extra -e before -a, -o, -u.

Nous mangeons becomes:

je mangeais

tu mangeais

il/elle/on mangeait

nous mangions vous mangiez

ils/elles mangeaient

 

With verbs like commencer, the last -c becomes -ç before -a, -o, -u. Nous commençons:

je commençais

tu commençais

il/elle/on commençait

nous commencions

vous commenciez

ils/elles commençaient

 

NB. The endings for the imperfect tense are always the same.
