I am a Franco-American student doing a Bachelor in Politics at the University of Exeter. I feel the need to understand the world around me. My absolute love of learning has grown as I believe that acquiring and sharing knowledge allows interesting conversations and debates. I went to school at the Lycée International de St Germain-en-Laye (France) in the American section and then at the Lycée International Georges Duby in a British section. I took the French Baccalaureate with the British option (OIB). Studying 2 programmes simultaneously taught me to adapt to various methods as well as to deal with copious amounts of knowledge and work.
The OIB is composed of 12 subjects, testing us both in oral and written exams for languages and hist-geo. I have acquired high writing and speaking skills in a wide range of subjects and am now extremely organized and can deal with high expectations. While applying, I alone researched which course and university I wished to go to. This long and dense process might seem overwhelming, but since I did it on my own I can be of immense help to you! I joined the sailing, my true passion, and boxing club. I truly believe that doing sports gives us balance in our everyday life and allows well-deserved breaks from studying! I also joined ExMUN, which is a simulation of United Nations. We discuss day to day events while representing a country and its interests, engaging in lively debates!
Thanks to my bilingual education in international schools, I can help with writing and oral skills in English literature and French, as well as History and Geography. Some examples of the learning techniques I use: synthesize the lesson, rephrasing the lesson into a question and then answering it, being able to explain the lesson to someone else, using mind maps and schemes. I’m also a keen supporter of interactive and oral exercises, as I find them extremely useful for memory and confidence. Structure of the tutorial: Firstly, we will discuss things that the tutees didn’t understand in class, or help give another explanation to solidify the knowledge they’ve acquired. We can plan and organize your workload, as well as discuss exercises I can give to improve specific skills. I can help with learning difficulties or if you have trouble reapplying what you have learned. The goal is for you to be able to apply the methods you’ll have learned from the tutorials to your everyday studying.
Secondly, we’ll do exercises from past exams so that you can become familiar and comfortable with the methodology required for your final exams. Lastly, I make a recap of the session allowing you to have a clear and understandable summary of what we’ve worked on. I do this on my own time once we’ve finished the session. You can then use the recaps as a basis for all our sessions. I’ll be here to help you, adapting to your needs and difficulties!
