About me

Hi! I'm Sophie. I currently study Spanish and Italian at the University of Warwick. I chose to study languages as they've always been something which I've enjoyed learning and the opportunities I have had through studying languages have been amazing. My fascination with languages is something which I try to pass on to younger students also studying them.

Hi! I'm Sophie. I currently study Spanish and Italian at the University of Warwick. I chose to study languages as they've always been something which I've enjoyed learning and the opportunities I have had through studying languages have been amazing. My fascination with languages is something which I try to pass on to younger students also studying them. As a second-year university student, I understand how stressful and challenging exams and applying to university can be, so I work with students to pinpoint and address any areas of weakness they are facing in their language studies. I've tutored for the past three years and so I understand how to help students get the results they want in a way that's engaging and interesting.

About my sessions

Our sessions will be entirely based around the student, so whatever it is that you're struggling with, I am more than happy to help. Schools often lack the ability to offer much speaking practice, and so I enjoy talking with students in Spanish both following the final exam structure and just casually to build confidence. For a student struggling with verbs or tenses I explain grammar concepts clearly and use different activities to confirm their understanding of the topic. If the writing...

Our sessions will be entirely based around the student, so whatever it is that you're struggling with, I am more than happy to help. Schools often lack the ability to offer much speaking practice, and so I enjoy talking with students in Spanish both following the final exam structure and just casually to build confidence. For a student struggling with verbs or tenses I explain grammar concepts clearly and use different activities to confirm their understanding of the topic. If the writing component of the exam is a concern, I will work with students to provide of kind of checklist to ensure their answers are meeting the marking criteria as best they can, and help students to shape their responses into something that will push them higher through the bands on the mark scheme. For more general revision, I use a range of engaging and interactive activities to solidify the students understanding and knowledge of different aspects of language learning. Throughout my lessons with students, I identify any areas of weakness that have not yet been addressed in order to ensure they have a complete grasp of all areas of the language in preparation for their final exams. For me, the most important thing is that the student is engaged with each session and grows with confidence throughout.

Kind, very helpful and makes things clear when you’re confused. :) - student Sophie helped my son in the last few weeks of his Spanish GCSE. Always punctual and communicated well with me, giving updates and providing practice questions or recommending links for further study. She would then go through this if necessary. I definitely saw a change in my sons confidence and she is most encouraging. Would like to use her again for my daughter in 3 years time (if she’s still available). - parent
