About me

Hi! I am passionate about languages, and helping others to learn. I want to bring languages to life and help you to get past the tedious, but necessary, grammar work to a high language level!

Education
I've just graduated with a 1st from Exeter University studying French and Russian having spent a year abroad in Russia. I am currently studying for a Graduate Diploma in Law (law conversion course). I achieved grade A*s at GCSE and As at A level in French and Spanish.

Experience
Before university, I spent a year in Paris working as a bilingual au pair. From this, I have gained lots of experience of teaching young people a language whilst keeping them engaged and motivated. By living there, I became fluent in French. I have experience in being a subject tutor for French for younger pupils at school.

Tutoring
I would be happy to tutor French (A level & GCSE), Spanish and Russian (GCSE). Remember to tell me what you're struggling with and which exam board you're taking!

I look forward to meeting you and working together to improve grades and to develop the life skill of speaking a foreign language!

About my sessions

My approach to tutoring is to, initially, identify the intricacies of a student’s learning style in order to best adapt my use of resources and time to match the student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Not only should learning be goal-oriented but also adapted to best suit the student’s age and desired outcomes. For many students, contextualising academic content enables them to see the value of learning (especially languages) in real-world scenarios. This strengthens memory of material for best results as they realise the importance of what they are learning. I will use my experiences of living, studying and working abroad to bring learning to life.

Questions Elinor has answered

How do I form the negative in French?

To form a negative phrase in French there are always two parts, called particles, which most go around the verb. For example, 'ne...pas': the 'ne' must come before the verb and the 'pas' must come after the verb. E.g. 'Je ne joue pas'.

In French, there are many other negative phrases, some of which are not negative in English. Here are some examples with their English meanings, they are used in exactly the same way as in the above example:
- 'ne...jamais' = never
- 'ne...que' = only
- 'ne...personne' = no one
- 'ne...plus' = no longer/ no more
- 'ne...rien' = anything/ nothing

In spoken French, the first negative particle 'ne' is often omitted (not said), but it must be included in written French.
