Information About Alice - Carnforth tutor
I'm an Undergraduate student at Durham University, studying Spanish and French. I will be available in Lancaster during the holidays (Christmas, Easter and Summer). I'm originally from Lancashire and attended Lancaster Girls' Grammar School where I gained A-Levels in English Literature, French and Spanish, enjoying the opportunity to fully engage in dance and drama alongside my academic studies. I love music and travelling.
As an A-Level student at my school, I tutored fellow students who were at GCSE level in French and Spanish: I acted as a mentor and loved seeing the girls gain confidence - and only ever got positive feedback - so I want to continue tutoring. When I was 17, I spent the summer in Barcelona working at an art school with children aged 4-16. I taught and was taught simultaneously, as I picked up some Catalan and shared some English terms with the kids. The experience affirmed my passion for the exchange of languages.
Having lived in foreign countries and been a student of language all my life, I understand that languages can be a daunting thing to learn. For me, the challenge in teaching lies in adjusting the student's mindset. By approaching language confidently and exploring aspects of it that are genuinely fun and interesting, there is nothing a student cannot get to grips with. I will adjust my teaching to suit the pupil so that they can gain the maximum possible from the tutoring.
