I am a modern languages (French & Italian) student at the University of Bristol. I am natively Italian and bi-lingual and have a real passion for language and literature.
I am very patient, friendly and enthusiastic. I have always enjoyed helping others with things that I am good at and my passion for language learning will (hopefully) inspire you! If you find learning French or Italian confusing and daunting then fear not I will do my best to shed some light on even the trickiest grammatical problems!
During the sessions, you will be in control of your learning. Bring your issues, concerns and difficulties to me and together we will find solutions that you can then bring to your exams in confidence.
Often the biggest problem with learning languages is simply not getting enough practice. Whatever you are finding difficult we can focus on in a fun way in order to make your weaknesses your strengths.
On top of languages, I am also passionate about literature and so also offer GCSE tutoring in English Literature. Having taken English to A-level at school, and continuing to study literature as part of my degree I can help you iron out any difficulties with a set text or with how to write a good essay.
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.
I look forward to meeting you!

In French it is often essential to know what gender a particular word is in order to be able to construct a sentence effectively and without errors.
However, it is not always immediately clear which words belong to which gender.
Here are some general rules that will help you to avoid making mistakes and construct accurate sentences.
1. If a noun refers to a male person it will be masculine, if it refers to a female person it will be feminine.
2. Nouns with these endings will (generally) be masculine:
3. Nouns with these endings will (generally) be feminine:
Although all these endings can seem overwhelming at first, take your time and remember the most common ones for each gender:
-age, and -ment for masculine nouns
-tion, -sion, -son for feminine nouns
After a while you will start to get a feel for which words belong to which gender and it will become easier to recognise them.see more
