Having been tutored myself in the past, I understand what being in a pupil's shoes is like. From there I then started tutoring after having developed a passion in education and learning. I have since tutored children as young as five to adults from a wide range of ages. This means that not only have I learnt how to adapt my teaching from individual to individual but also to adapt my level of tutoring based on age and/or past experience in the subjects that I tutor.
The last student I tutored on Spires achieved an A at A level French.
I have years of experience both tutoring and mentoring young people, and am now working as a chemistry teacher, so I have access to useful resources, across KS3, 4 and 5. This means I can ensure the right support to help students truly understand the topic and get the best grade possible.
I have been teaching languages for more than 15 years long and always improving and getting new ways and methods to teach.
I have a BA in philosophy with first-class honours from the University of York, and an MA from the University of Birmingham. A number of my papers have been published, and I was previously an editor of a philosophical journal.
I have been teaching for over four years. I am reliable, dedicated and professional. I have an exceptional history of helping students achieve success.
I am a professionally trained, passionate philosopher. I believe in helping students to achieve highly whilst also imparting some of what makes philosophy a wonderful subject. Despite what some people think, you absolutely can maximise both simultaneously. Learning should be fun and rewarding, but still results driven.
I have excellent communicative and interpersonal skills. Philosophy is hard, we will look at things together that some of the greatest minds of the last two and a half thousand years have struggled to grapple with, so although I can never make it easy, I can certainly make it easier. I want to help you appreciate the satisfaction of understanding and working with something that was originally very challenging.
I am currently teaching English and Spanish in different companies, language schools and the most renowned tuition agencies in London on a freelance basis and occasionally working as cover supervisor in some schools. I am familiar and experienced with all GCSE and A-Level boards (Edexcel, OCR, AQA, iGGSE Cambridge, IB) and exams (DELE...)
I am flexible with my time. I understand how it feels to learn a language that is completely different from the one you are used to, so I can definitely empathize with your situation and create a learning environment that will hopefully make you feel more at ease.
I encourage students to solve their own problems by guiding them with leading questions as this reaffirms their understanding of the subject matter. This method allows them to apply the same knowledge to different questions as they answer a question using their own words rather than mine.
I have plenty experience tutoring online. I have been working as a tutor helping prepare students for different international exams in the past 6 years. I also work with the goals of each student individually and help them achieve their desire score.
Through my tutoring experience, I have learned to be a personable teacher and mentor. I have taught English for two months in Rio de Janeiro at a charity school called Solar Meninos de Luz. In London, I have several years worth of experience teaching French, Spanish, Portuguese and English (all as foreign languages). I have prepared students for exams at OCR and Edexcel GCSE, as well as AQA A-Level and Cambridge Pre-U. I aim to make learning fun and interactive, and so I use technology such as graphic tablets as well as word games provided by Memrise.
My Modern Languages course at Oxford University has prepared me for tutoring. Having benefited from weekly face-to-face discussions with tutors, I appreciate the value of personalised tutoring and committing to ambitious exam and university entrance objectives.
I have extensive experience tutoring, both online and face-to-face. I have 6 years tutoring experience, covering a wide range of subjects including maths, geography, physics, Spanish and oxbridge entrance. Further, I an have excellent academic background, with 11A* grades at GCSE and 4A-Level grades (A*AAA), and a First Class degree from Oxford University. With my experience and knowledge combined, I am able to provide interesting and engaging lessons, which will enable you to reach your full potential in higher education.
Significant tutoring experience - tutoring has been my main job since 2012. I have experience teaching one-on-one in person and online, as well providing seminars, workshops, and coaching in schools and at public events.
I hope my experience in online tutoring has demonstrated that I am sufficiently organised and engaging, to provide an enjoyable distance-learning experience. Online teaching is an unusual medium - both distant and intimate at once. I hope that, over the years, I have learnt to strike a decent balance and provide strong online support.
I have been tutoring since 2012. I began my career as an English as a Foreign Language tutor and spent three years working in Spain where I taught English in academies, schools and universities. In 2017 I was accepted on to the Teach First programme and since then I have been a full-time history teacher in a London school. Consequently, I have diverse experience working with students with SEND, behavioural difficulties as well as students who will go on to study in red brick universities.
