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.
I think I make a good tutor as I truly understand what it is like to come from an educational background that provides little help to be the best that you can be. I am a trained peer supporter so know how to listen to you effectively and actually understand the problems you face! I also do like english a lot, even if it can be a hard subject - I do really enjoy tasks such as close reading or proof reading!!
I have 14 YEARS of TEACHING EXPERIENCE. This has encompassed ALL AGES (preschool to adults) and abilities (BEGINNER to POSTGRADUATE). Subjects I've taught are: GCSE & A Level (Music, Business Studies, Media Studies, Maths), British Primary School Curriculum (Maths, English), Admissions Tests (11+, 12+, 13+, 16+, SAT, GRE), American Elementary School Curriculum (Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, etc.), Preschool (Numeracy & Literacy), English proficiency tests (IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge YLE), Business English, Academic Writing/Composition & Presentations, English Conversation, Grammar, University & Job Applications, Project-Based Learning (PBL), Music Theory & Analysis, Improvisation & Jazz, Saxophone, & Piano. Additionally, I have worked in all kinds of SETTINGS at both public & private primary & secondary schools, universities, adult learning centres, cram schools, businesses, within the home (as a residential home school & a private tutor) and online (to students worldwide). In addition, I have served as the Head of English & PBL at a private elementary & junior high school, as the Academic Director of a test prep centre, and have provided educational consultancy & tutor training to Oxford's oldest tutorial college.
I have gathered extensive tutoring experience as a private Physics and Maths tutor in the Greater London area since 2014. I have tutored and prepared students from 11+ groups all the way to A levels, and have managed to specialise in the GCSE and A level curriculum. I am currently working for a VIP family in Dubai preparing their son for his A levels this year.
I have also gathered significant experience in the past while being a Mechanical Engineering Student at the Simón Bolívar University, in Venezuela, when I had the opportunity to tutor students in Maths as well as in Physics, as a preparation for their university entrance tests. I also helped younger promotions of students as well as fellow students of my own promotion at university, in order to gain a better preparation for evaluations in different engineering topics.
I have an excellent ability to communicate and connect with students of all Ages and I am able to mold my teaching so that everyone of my students internalises the topic. I am very passionate about teaching and I believe that with patience, the right focus on the details of the subject, as well as a general vision of it, and a dynamic comprehensive way of tutoring, you can tutor everyone till the extent of excellence. I am confident that my passion and experience are the qualities you are looking for.
I have over 10 years experience working in schools and science centers. I have privately tutored students to GCSE level in the past with great success.
I am a driven individual who is dedicated to helping those students who want an Oxbridge place, for physics or engineering, to get one. I am no pushover. I will ask you challenging questions and make sure that you are outside of your intellectual comfort zone, to coerce from you your very best performance when it is needed.
I am a qualified teacher with over seven years of experience teaching in schools in the UK and overseas. I have taught both music and English as a foreign language, as well as tutoring students through ABRSM piano and music theory exams. My GCSE results are consistently high, and all of my piano students achieved merit or above in their exams. I have taught AQA, Edexcel and IGCSE Music. I have also coached students through A level music.
I am a CELTA-qualified teacher, English native speaker and Masters graduate with a broad range of teaching experience, including business English, teaching children and adults, exam preparation, intensive classes and project-based learning. I have taught various levels and class sizes and am skilled at adapting my methods to individual learners. In addition to English, I have taught French, German and Russian, all of which I speak at a C1/C2 level.
In a number of teaching roles, including my current one teaching adult refugees, I have gained experience with a wide range of learner groups and teaching approaches. Having worked sometimes with pre-set curricula but often with the freedom to design my own curriculum, I have built up experience in creating learning programmes that teach and assess material in an engaging, memorable and meaningful way. As a volunteer for online high school Sky School, where I've helped to build the 'English for Changemakers' module, I've gained an insight into how distance education works, what platforms are available for it, and how it can be made impactful for learners.
I am a tutor of 5 years experience with an excellent academic record. I took 5 AS level examinations and 4 A-levels (receiving A* in English and Drama and Theatre Studies, As in Classical Civilisation and History). I received 8A*s and 2As at GCSE level. I also have personal experience of school entrance exams at 11+ and 6th form level.
I am a good communicator. With my background in the performing arts and recent experience in educational theatre, I am good at engaging students in their subject and the task at hand. I like to encourage students, while pushing them to achieve what they are capable of.
My own research interests are in mid-century American literature, specifically in the 50s and 60s counterculture (as manifested in the work of Allen Ginsberg and Norman Mailer); and the interactions of English and French comic literature, particularly in the work of Geoffrey Chaucer and Lawrence Sterne.
I studied at Oxford University and graduated with First Class Honours in History. Currently, I am studying a Master's in Law, Business and Management. I will be starting work as a lawyer at an international commercial law firm in London in August. I am passionate about learning and love to help. I enjoyed my History degree and would be happy to share my interest in the subject with students. I'm certain that my experience and passion for the subject will help you do excellently. Editing and proofreading both my own and others' work is something that I enjoy and do very frequently. I'm confident that I can help you get the best possible grade for your assignment through this process, as well as give you tips and comments that will help you write effectively in the future. I am also especially interested in aiding people who are in the process of applying to university.
