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 and have recently started judo and kendo. I am also learning Korean and have just moved to Seoul!
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 gave me further interview practice, in which we discussed my submitted work and 2 unseen texts. I found her advice incredibly useful.
Carine and I discussed aspects of my SAQ and an unseen text in this session. She provided challenging material and perceptive feedback, which will really benefit my preparation.
Carine and I discussed possible ideas for the SAQ and she pointed me towards some great reading material. I finished the session feeling much more confident about it.
Carine gave me very encouraging and useful feedback, so that I could refine my essay for submitted work.
In this session, we went over my personal statement and Carine provided useful feedback that helped me to finalise it.
In this session, Carine and I had an interesting discussion on Identity Politics. The article she provided and the questions she asked were highly thought-provoking. This has been one of my favourite sessions yet!
Today we practised planning and writing topic sentences for essay questions, and I now feel much more confident about how to approach an essay. I also appreciated how encouraging Carine was!
Carine provided feedback on an essay I had written and offered ideas on how I could structure it more clearly and be more concise. I found the session extremely helpful.
