Personal Description:

I am a competent and friendly third year English Literature student at St Andrews University. I studied French and German alongside this for my Junior Honours, and can speak, read and write confidently in both languages. As well as languages, I have an interest in creative writing, art and photography. I am both an enthusiastic and a patient teacher and I have found working one-on-one with students to be endlessly rewarding.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored GCSE pupils of all-abilities for oral exams and controlled assessment writing in both French and German. I have also worked one-to-one with year 9 and 10 students on essay writing and style and marked secondary school entrance exam essays in English. I have worked with lower sixth students on their personal statements for English, French and German. I have additional experience in art, and have exhibited and sold my work in galleries and cafés. I have recently led workshops in sketch-booking, print-making and inks.

Tutoring Approach:

Understanding the frustrations of getting to grips with a subject (especially languages) is absolutely essential to successful tutoring. Nothing can be more infuriating to a pupil than seeing words that stubbornly refuse to show you meaning. With a realization - and indeed experience! - of this, I am able to tutor pupils with patience and encourage them to tackle their subject with enthusiasm and positivity.
