About me

About Me:

 

I am a French and Italian student at Oxford University. I love learning new languages and reading both English and foreign literature, and hopefully my tutorials will help you gain a passion for these things too.

 

Learning a foreign language is a hard process and I promise to be patient, friendly and understanding.

 

I have had to teach friends limited amounts of French and Italian for trips abroad in the past and have helped friends to prepare essays for both literature and language papers. I have worked with young people while building an orphanage in Swaziland and had to teach duties to younger students as Deputy Head of House at my secondary school.

 

The Session

 

You will lead what we cover in sessions. Grammar and vocabulary are essential in understanding and commanding a foreign language, as is a thorough understanding of a text and literary techniques before writing an essay.

 

I will give as many possible techniques and tricks to help you memorise vocabulary and learn grammar (by the end you will definitely be able to order more than spaghetti Bolognese or crème brûlée the next time you’re in Paris or Rome).

 

I will also explain as clearly as possible what is happening in a literary text so that you can discover a deeper level of enjoyment.

 

I am sure that you will find the sessions fun and achieve a lot in the time we have – especially if you enjoy them!

 

What to do next

 

If you want to ask me anything then please send me a ‘WebMail’ or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’ (both can be done on this website). Please don’t forget to tell me your exam board and what you’re having difficulties with.

 

I look forward to meeting you soon!

When do I use the conditional perfect tense in a "si" clause?

The conditional perfect tense should be used in a "si" clause when there is no possibility for the event to happen. It must also be used with the pluperfect tense. For example: If I had known I would have done it. Si j'avais su je l'aurais fait.
