Hello! My name is Carine and I am a London-born London-bred half-Russian half-French tutor. I have been tutoring for several years now and love bringing a subject to life for my students. In my spare time, I enjoy keeping fit, learning languages (my current one is Korean) and reading up on current affairs. I have also just moved to Seoul but in the past have lived in Tokyo, London and Evian-les-Bains.
Over the last few years I have had experience teaching in schools, summer camps, online and in person, as well as teaching both one on one and in large groups. I have worked with charities, schools and private organisations so have tutored for a mixture of different purposes including supporting applications to Oxbridge, developing confidence in a subject and improving grades. I have tutored well over 60 pupils and take pride in making my lessons as engaging and productive as possible. My students have gone on to study at Cambridge and other top London universities.
I am a fluent French and Japanese speaker and have been tutoring both subjects for several years now. I studied first-year French at the University of Cambridge and received A* at A-level. I also passed the N2 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. I have an up to date knowledge of the syllabi and have gone through the examinations myself, meaning I know what proves useful for students.
I have also tutored many students with regard to their UCAS applications and entry into Oxbridge. This has involved discussing how to structure personal statements, redrafting personal statements and interview preparation. Past students have gone on to study at Cambridge and top London universities.
Today Carine and I have finalised my Personal Statement. Her devotion to support me meant a lot to me, especially in this final rush of finishing this work. She is extremely lovely and one of the best, if not the best teacher I have ever had! :)
Carine has been the most inspiring tutor I could have asked for! Not only has she given me a great introduction to sociology, but she has also broadened my whole outlook on life. Specifically, she has given invaluable help with my personal statement, essay writing and interview preparation. She has always been generous with her time, provided thought-provoking material and I've left every session feeling motivated to learn more. I couldn't recommend her enough!
Carine was fabulous...again. She provided a very realistic mock interview and great advice on how best to prepare and 'read around' subjects. As always, Carine was generous with her time which I appreciated.
Excellent, explained things very clearly, knows the syllabus very well. I hope to continue learning with her!
