I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge (reading Arabic and French), keen to help tutor aspiring linguists and Oxbridge students!

Methodology

My teaching method is interactive and fun above all else. I began privately tutoring students when I was studying the International Baccalaurate at high school. My French teacher at the time recommended me as a tutor and I routinely taught 4 students (3 for French, 1 for Spanish). When I moved overseas to study at Cambridge I continued teaching 3 out of the 4 via Skype lessons. As well as this I was a teacher's aid in France for 5 months, assisting and teaching English as a second language. I continued working with young people in a professional teaching environment over this most recent summer, where I worked as a Student Helper with Oxford Summer Courses. I often took over when teacher's were absent, either teaching Law or English. As well as this I assist students with essay writing (often using examples of my own work from Cambridge), Oxbridge applications (personal statements etc.) and exam prep. Examples of my previous teaching methods include flash cards, vocabulary games, grammar exercises, listening examples, mini tests and occasionally using audio-visual material.

Background

Hello! My name is Kate, I am 23 years old and a recent Cambridge graduate. I read Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at King's College, Cambridge with a focus on Arabic and French. My degree included a Year Abroad component, which I spent teaching and studying in France and Morocco. I am now studying the Graduate Diploma in Law at BPP University in London, sponsored on a training contract with Clifford Chance Middle East. Before Cambridge I went to high school in Sydney, Australia where I undertook the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, scoring 44 out of a possible 45 points. My hobbies include learning new languages, travelling, reading and meeting new people. Please do get in touch - my forte is language tuition as well as preparation for Oxbridge entrance and exams. I also assist International Baccalaureate and GSCE/A level students with their studies.
