About me: I have always had a passion for languages, with my motivation stemming from my desire to become fluent in both French and Spanish.
Experience: I have had experience of teaching in the classroom and one-to-one tutoring with GCSE level students, as well as being an English assistant in France. For the past year I have also been a tutor for a first year student in Spanish.
The sessions: I understand how challenging the GCSE and A level courses can be, and I hope to improve confidence in languages by creating a fun and relaxed working atmosphere.
I will spend time planning lessons, which will be tailored to the needs of the student, in order to consolidate their understanding of any aspects of the language. I am familiar with the AQA boards for both French and Spanish.

An auxiliary verb is the first verb used in a compound tense (when more than one verb is present) such as le passé composé.
Most French verbs take the auxiliary verb avoir - J'ai regardé la télé.
However, there are certain cases where the verb être is used as the auxiliary verb.
Verbs to do with movement (MR VANS TRAMPED):
INFINITIF PARTICIPE PASSÉ
M mourir (to die) Mort
R rester (to stay) Resté
V venir (to come) Venu
A aller (to go) Allé
N naitre (to be born) Né
S sortir (to go out) Sorti
T tomber (to fall) Tombé
R retourner (to return) Retourné
A arriver (to arrive) Arrivé
M monter (to climb) Monté
P partir (to leave) Parti
E entrer (to enter) Entré
D descendre(to go down) Descendu
The verbs above are to do with some sort of movement, so use être when dealing with these verbs.
Remember: the verb être makes the past participle (allé, arrivé, mort) work like an adjective. Therefore the past participle must agree with who did the action.
Add –e if it’s feminine Elle est arrivée trop tard.
Add –s if it’s masculine plural Ils sont montés la montagne.
Add –es if it’s feminine plural. Les trois filles sont parties tôtsee more
