Personal Statements and Oxbridge Admissions (interview prep)

I'm an Oxford graduate who has been helping university applicants with personal statements over the past few years, a number of whom have secured places at Oxbridge.

Before applying to university myself I spent a lot of time with a number of different people who helped guide me with my personal statement and the rest of the admissions process. I now aim to pass on to others the insight I gained from these experiences.

In a personal statement session, I will set out the structure of a great personal statement and work with the student to identify the content which will allow their application to stand out amongst those of other applicants.

For those applying to Oxbridge, I am happy to help with course choices, college choices, expectations of the Oxbridge lifestyle, and understanding the difference between Oxford and Cambridge. I have also run a number of mock interviews for applicants based on the experiences of myself and other Oxbridge graduates to ensure that students feel more comfortable and prepared for the real thing.

Interview simulation & video analysis filmed if necessary - Identify your values, promote your professional project / your assets and strengths but also work on areas for improvement in order to find new momentum in your career. Note that during the videoconference session, all the notes are transcribed in the chat so that you can access them at any time when you wish. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions *. (* study 2020) PLACES : - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: chat notes that can be read later). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place in a very optimal way and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm).

Online SPANISH LESSONS with Certified Native Teacher - ALL LEVELS!
I am a native teacher from Barcelona, with a degree in History and as a Spanish teacher for foreigners. I have been teaching private lessons for over 10 years, but I’ve also taught in the context of cultural associations and the French & Catalan national education. I am always happy to be part of my students’ learning journey; no matter what level you have, we will learn plenty of things together! :) I offer dynamic Spanish online lessons adapted to each person and their needs. My lessons are oriented to all levels, using the language in real and pedagogic contexts. As a teacher, I am very interested in letting my students learn not only the language but also the Spanish culture, as it is a fundamental aspect to really be able to succeed in the learning process. In order to do so, we will work on all the different competences (oral and writing skills), grammar and vocabulary, of course, but also I like to use some real texts, videos, songs, etc., so we can get the chance to learn from real instructional materials and discuss the news and culture. I try to use Spanish as the main language during my lessons. Of course, I can translate when it's necessary (I am fluent in both English and French). But I really believe that the most important thing is to try to communicate in Spanish so you will become more and more fluent. Don't worry: we will get there step by step! I’ve helped a lot of students pass their exams, prepare their job interviews and resumes, or just become comfortable in their oral practise. I am used to teach Spanish from scratch, I have long experience teaching high levels as well. Please, contact me for further information and let me know how I can help you.

WRITING AND EDITING : Beginner's Way into the World of Publishing
I want you to think of a world where the art of writing or editing will or cannot come in handy. I still think of hundreds of save the date or wedding invitation cards I have received over the years and the minor details they have gotten wrong or the spellings, it is always one thing or the other. It has been so bad that I have developed the habit of snatching the card and looking for the thing they got wrong – it is my version of Where’s Waldo? The art of editing is quite frankly simple yet daunting. You just need the right tools, teacher, and some resilience. We will be working on your editing skills over the course of one month (initially) and if you feel like it is working for you and you need to make it your career and further hone your skills then you can complete it by doing the full-fledged thing.
