Why Study Modern Languages?

Language Tutoring at with Wentworth Tutors

English speakers often overlook the importance of studying other languages. The ability to speak multiple languages is in fact a highly sought after skill. In an increasingly globalised world, languages students are among the most employable university graduates!

Beyond finding a job, learning another language can provide you with lifelong opportunities. It allows you to develop the skills needed to study, work and live abroad. You also get the opportunity to learn about and immerse yourself in other cultures.

Knowledge of another language can transform your travel experiences. You can discover the art, music, literature, film and food of another country; meet new people and develop life-long friendships around the world.

Studying languages can also help build confidence and, according to new research, even improve brain function!

I have experience teaching a range of ages, both privately part-time and in full time employment as a teacher at Hurstpierpoint College, where I worked for a year before starting my degree at Oxford University. I have a particular interest in entrance into the UK's top schools and Universities, teaching 11 plus, Common Entrance, and preparing students for Oxbridge. I am aided by a detailed understanding of UK independent schools as well as experience preparing for the American education system at ISEE and SSAT level in particular. I have delivered private tuition to children between 5 and 20 years. I find tutoring immensely rewarding and particularly enjoy the focused nature of assisting an individual with their academic goals. ...
I took a teaching post at Harrow School in 2015, teaching IGCSEs in English Language and Literature and delivering lectures to A-level students. I was also made Director-in-Residence and Master-in-Charge of Debating. Earlier that year I graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature from Christ Church, Oxford, where I was one of the twelve original Reuben Scholars. My papers in Shakespeare and Beckett for Finals were classed as publishable. Throughout my time at Oxford and Harrow, I have accumulated extensive experience tutoring privately for a range of abilities, from pre-test to university admissions. Although my undergraduate degree was in the arts, I have always nurtured a healthy interest in subjects across the curriculum, having studied Further Mathematics and Physics at A Level, and I am continually excited by the prospect of facilitating the development of a student’s academic pursuits in a variety of disciplines. A constant desire to advance my own knowledge energises me as a tutor, and I believe that communicating this enthusiasm allows me to stimulate both the curiosity and diligence of my tutees. ...
I was brought up in Paris and moved to London to study at Imperial College, where I obtained a Bachelor’s and Master's degree in Theoretical Physics with High First Class honours. My research focussed on the way in which alternative logic systems can help us bridge the gap between quantum mechanics and relativity. I was awarded Associateship of the Royal College of Science. Although I am a science specialist, I also have a strong background in English and Verbal Reasoning. I sat the GRE in 2016 for entrance to US Grad School and got exceptionally good grades (Verbal Reasoning - 99th percentile, Analytical Writing - 93rd percentile). Since 2011, I have offered private tuition for all major examination boards as well as working for the Imperial College summer schools. ...
I graduated in 2014 with a Double First in Modern and Medieval Languages from Trinity College, Cambridge, where I specialised in French and Spanish. Following my B.A., I received a full academic scholarship to undertake a MPhil in Management at Judge Business School, Cambridge, where I studied Finance and completed a consulting project with Lloyds Banking Group. In 2016, I obtained a M.A. in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, with a particular focus on French eighteenth-century works. I have variously worked in the worlds of art, fashion and music, from interning with Picasso's granddaughter in Paris, to working at Tom Ford and Sotheby's in London. I also helped to raise £10 million to build a new theatre for charity organisation Grange Park Opera. As a tutor, I specialise in French and Spanish language and literature, essay-writing skills, CV and personal statement advice. ...
I have been studying with degree level students for years and find tailoring concepts and processes to an individual’s interests exciting. I’m patient and disciplined and enjoy the reward of helping students move past plateaus in their learning, and with a diverse background in many subject areas I can adapt lessons and study to a wide range of individual needs. ...
