Degree: BA Modern Languages - French and Arabic (Bachelors) - Durham University
My name is Amee Thwaites and I am currently a 2nd year student of French and Arabic at Durham University. I completed A Levels in Music, French and Biology.
I have a range of teaching and tutoring experience, particularly in music, French and English Language. I worked as an English teacher for a year before university and currently tutor local Durham secondary school pupils in music and French. I am currently studying to become a CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching for Adults)-qualified English teacher.
I really enjoy helping my students work through tricky problems with step-by-step understandable solutions and careful practice. I can also offer help with university applications including personal statements and English Language tests such as IELTS.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' - both of which are available through this website. I am very much looking forward to meeting you!

We can improve your musical dictation with a number of tips and tricks. Firstly it is important to master rhythmic dictation. This can be done by completing dictations which are all on the same note in order to target the rhythm and how you percieve it. Gradually we can add in different notes and build up you ability to dictate in this way. To percieve difficult intervals we can use a number of intervals that we already know. The opening two notes of 'My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean,' for example, is an internal of a major 7th, which is often a tricky interval to identify. You can learn to identify these intervals in context, and improve your skills in musical dictation.see more
Manquer is a regular -er verb which means 'to miss' someone. It is a reflexive verb, which means a pronoun (me, te, le, la, nous, vous, les) must be used before the verb.
Unusually, the pronoun in this case does not indicate the object of the verb (the person being missed) but instead indicates the subject (the person who is missing someone else). For example:
Je te manques = You miss me
Tu me manques = I miss you
Use of the manquer verb should take the following structure:
(Personal pronoun) + (direct object pronoun) + Manquer (conjugated)
Je te manque
Tu me manques
Il/Elle/On vous manque
Nous la manquons
Vous les manquez
Ils/Elles le manquent
