About Me

I have recently completed my Phd in Biological Anthropology, with a particular emphasis on female puberty and obstetric hazards. In my free time I enjoy travelling and learning about new cultures or just visiting with friends. During the winter I often try and spend a few weekends skiing in Gstaad, CH and in the summer I love snorkelling in California; however, since moving to Europe I have tried to take advantage of the Mediterranean as well. While in London, I enjoy art shows, trying new restaurants and volunteering. I am a co-owner of the Charleston Clubin London, member of the Wing and other various social clubs.

Tutor Experience

I am a professional educator with American teaching qualifications, an IB Examiner and have over a decade of experience. In addition to teaching at local colleges and universities, I write curriculum and design various educational projects both in Europe and America. I specialise in discreet, bespoke tutoring and homeschool students- including mainstream SEN, international students and those seeking admission into US universities alongside dozens of students who need regular homework help, test prep and entrance exams tuition. I cover a range of subjects including English, Maths, History, Science, Classics, Geography, Secondary school admissions (11+, 13+, ISEE, and SSAT), American University admissions (SAT, ACT, SAT II) along with IB and A - Level preparation. Having a wide range of teaching experience including classroom and one-to-one and group settings, I have the ability to determine the best approach with each student so that their lessons with me are tailored to their individual needs.
