I have taught everything from music theory to English as far afield as New York and Madagascar, in classrooms, 1-to-1 and online. I have a Congratulatory First in Modern Languages from Oxford and have been tutoring a range of subjects for the last 9 years. I also have experience of living, working and studying in both France and Germany. Although my style of teaching is friendly and laid-back, I take immense pleasure from academic achievement and from inspiring others to achieve their academic goals.

MLAT job with Sorcha:
Over 2 hrs/week - I'm looking for someone who can help me ace the Mlat French text on October 30th. I need someone with experience as time is of the essence!
I understand the subjunctive and grammar are important to get top marks.
Thanks in advance.
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.

Rhys's last review in Admissions MLAT from Amelie: Linguistics MLAT #4 - final meeting Thank you so much for the helping me on my MLAT. Sessions with you have been really helpful in my preparation :)
I'm a postgraduate at The University of Oxford, and already hold a Congratulatory First in German (BA) with the best results of the 200 students in the Languages department, as well as the highest grades in Arts subjects at my college.
I also have over four years of tutoring experience, from primary through to GCSE, A Level, and undergraduate. It's a consistent delight to celebrate tutees' successes - be it getting to grips with a thorny bit of grammar, having a 'eureka!' moment with a tricky piece of literature, or passing exams with flying colours.
There can be no one-size-fits-all formula when it comes to a tutoring session. Every tutee has different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and will progress at an individual pace. I can help with anything from oral presentations and spoken fluency, to essays, literature, and grammar (having personally tried all the tips and tricks!).

I have worked as a professional tutor and educational consultant for six years. I have taught dozens of students for thousands of hours in total. I have also worked as a teacher in an independent school in North London.
I have had many successful students; a few examples include:
>Three admitted to study HSPS at Cambridge.
>One admitted to all three of Westminster, Winchester, and St.Paul's for 13+.
>One who gained 84/84 marks in his A-Level Politics Paper 2, which is now being used as an exemplar.
>One who gained an A in A-Level History after being predicted a C.
I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I aim to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.
I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.
I have been tutoring since 2014. I worked as a tutor throughout my time as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford and graduate at the University of Cambridge. Every pupil has different requirements, and I always tailor my lessons and approach accordingly in order to help them develop academically, and hopefully enjoy this process.
During my time as a tutor I have taught a range of subjects to pupils at different levels, including English, History, Maths, German, Latin and Greek. I have had great success helping pupils prepare for their A Levels, GCSEs, Common Entrance and 11+ exams. Equally I have helped older students with university admissions, and have successfully helped pupils with entrance exam preparation for the University of Oxford. In terms of helping prepare pupils for admissions exams, I have a broad knowledge of different schools across London and outside of it, and what each one requires of its students.
Schools I have tutored pupils for admissions include:
St Paul's Boys School (which I attended)
St Paul's Girls School
I have worked in a French high school (with a further education section) as an English Assistant Teacher, leading whole classes, small conversation groups, and one-on-one practices. In this role, I planned lessons, learnt effective teaching methods, and aimed to create a comfortable atmosphere for students to grow more confident in. I worked with many different departments - standard high school English, product design, international marketing, cosmetology, you name it. Everyone had different aims and purposes for learning, and thus I adapted accordingly.
Additionally, I worked at two summer schools for Japanese students coming to learn English over four summers during my degree. As a mentor, I constantly tried to make learning engaging for my students, finding a more relaxed and friendly approach to learning. An important part of learning is creating a good environment, so students who are struggling, or afraid of failing, feel comfortable enough to fulfil the potential that EVERY student has.
More recently, I have worked as a kids art teacher in an after-school programme. Art history is something seen as fairly inaccessible to kids. However, part of the challenge and fun of teaching is taking a complicated subject matter and explaining it at the student's level.
I have over 10 years tutoring and teaching experience and have taught a wide gamut of ages, abilities and subjects in a variety of educational settings.
My higher education teaching experience includes lecturing and providing one-on-one tutorials for a final-year paper in the Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge and leading seminars for French courses at University College London.
My tutoring experience includes:
– supporting preparation for public exams in English (Language and Literature), History, French and Latin;
– supporting university applications and providing coaching for interviews, including Oxbridge entrance;
– providing tailored support for independent research project development, including coursework at secondary level and dissertation work at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
I am passionate about curriculum enrichment and widening participation. I have enjoyed working with Villiers Park Educational Trust over the past 6 years, working with sixth-formers based at state schools and colleges across England. I have devised and delivered French and English courses pitched at undergraduate level for the Trust and co-led ‘Thriving and Surviving’ courses which have included sessions on study skills, time management and budgeting. Most recently, I delivered courses on misinformation and political messaging.
Alongside my tutoring, I run an education consultancy, Dilectae, under which sits my initiative, The Critical Literacy Project. My mission is to build an intelligent tool to empower the next generation with deep literacy skills in our mass (mis)information era.
I am passionate about equipping all of my students with the skills to become independent learners and researchers.
