Personal Description:

I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in Modern Languages, specialising in French and Russian. I am very enthusiastic about learning and teaching languages and I speak both French and Russian fluently. I have excellent insight into contemporary French and Russian culture, having lived, worked and travelled extensively in countries where these languages are spoken. I am an avid reader of French and Russian literature and I also have good knowledge of the history, theatre, music and visual art of these countries.

Tutoring Experience:

Last year, I tutored French to an A Level student and helped her to achieve an A grade.

I also have extensive experience in teaching English as a foreign language: whilst living in Ukraine, I tutored English to five local high school students and whilst living in France, I tutored English to two boys aged 5 and 7.

Tutoring Approach:

I always tailor my lessons to meet my students' specific needs and interests. Depending on the individual goals of each student, I can design a course focussing on the area where they need the most practice, whether that's speaking, grammar or exam technique.

Having learned French, Russian and Ukrainian myself as a non-native speaker, I understand the challenges of learning a foreign language and have developed inventive ways of explaining complicated grammar questions.

It's really important to me to make language learning relevant to today - I hated the dry and old-fashioned language textbooks I used at school! I enjoy using current newspaper articles, songs and extracts from films and novels in my lessons, wherever possible.
