My passion is to develop in students a commitment to their own life long learning and develop the associated skills to achieve their aspirations.
In tutoring, my goal is to support students to achieve to the best of their ability by helping them understand their role in learning, supporting them to develop the necessary subject specific skill competencies as well as content understanding.
Recent students have achieved over 80% in their university entrance exams with just a few sessions including some focus on exam preparation as well as content. Another student with a commitment to her own success achieved a 7 in IB Business Management with one on one teaching over only one year, where I coached her to develop and apply her learning to achieve her desired results. In 2020, through Spires I coached a student for a few months on her Business Management IA which facilitated her to reach a 7!
In the initial free meeting, I will help students to identify and plan their learning goals, then coach them to achieve those goals in future lessons. I also seek to engage with parents from the beginning to ensure students have as many levels of support for their learning as possible.
My name is Reena Nathani. I am from India. I have been teaching CAIE Business for AS and A Level from 2010 and IB Diploma Business Management since 2014. During my process of Business Management teacher, I have supervised many Extended Essays closely and supported my students to score 7 points in their IBDP Business Management results. I am an IBDP Business Management Examiner from 2015 for Business Management HL paper 2 and HL IA. I have also worked as CAIE AS and A Level Academic Coordinator for two years. During my tenure as an academic coordinator, I have also involved in conducting Cambridge March series Examination in my school. Currently I am in the training process of GCC UCLA Career Counsellor and expecting to get my Career Counsellor certificate by the end of this year.
I passionately believe in students achieving their potential and enjoy the role of personal tutoring to further aid students learning. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business and Economics (2:1) and have worked for a number of large organisations offering a variety of depth and experience. Online tutoring is about helping students form around the world to access education via the platform of the internet, to help them succeed at their studies. Firstly, I like to make an initial meeting to understand the needs and objectives of the personal tutoring before developing a detailed plan of the outline of personal tutoring support. I am keen to ensure that both parents and students alike are happy with the service and will accommodate additional requests. I like to ensure that the learner is both enthused and engaged in the tutoring sessions and have a range of resources and assessment techniques.

I have 23 years of experience in tutoring learners to achieve their goals.

I combine two decades of experience in the education sector with my earlier career in the creative industries to offer engaging learning opportunities relevant to our daily lives. I am a passionate advocate of 'affective' learning and well-being through creativity, critical inquiry and philosophical reasoning. I invite you to engage in these ways of thinking that can empower you with relevant skills to support your personal growth. I have extensive experience in tutoring GCSE, A-Level, CAIE/CIE, IB, PRE-U, EPQ, Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Professional learners. My presentation style is engaging and interactive. I convert complicated theories and paradigms into straightforward ideas, with practical worth, and impart useful advice for my clients.
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.
Over the past 15 years, I have been helping students with their studies in Economics, Finance, Statistics, and other Business-related subjects, primarily at the university level. Moreover, I have had extensive experience in thesis writing and assignment supervision, research guidance as well as academic writing. During this time, my zeal, in-depth knowledge and overall tutoring skills have enabled me to develop a good reputation, thus having a consistent and loyal base of students on a weekly basis.
I have been tutoring private clients for more than 10 years in IB Economics, Business Management, Study skills and Math.
My mission as a tutor is to positively motivate students to achieve. As such I stay attuned to each students’ needs and tailor lessons as needed. To this aim, I incorporate technology (online/blended learning tools) and use a variety of up to date learning materials. These materials include academic and mainstream readings, as well as media (podcast, documentaries, etc.…). I have over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring private clients and large groups ranging from school age to IB, to the university level. Subjects I've tutored include English, business subjects, anthropology, geography, public and interpersonal communications, and academic/professional writing on various.
I have lots of experience tutoring online and in the classroom. My students benefit mostly from lessons where we focus on literacy including; definition of key terms, linking case studies to theory and redrafting answers to essay questions. Students benefit from the opportunity to interrogate different command terms so as to really understand what the question requires. I have delivered online courses as well as revision classes and workshops in A-level economics and business. I have also worked with undergraduate students, helping to prepare them for end of module exams in business and economics. As a qualified teacher I have taught for more than 5 years across a range of qualifications in GCSE, A-level and IB Business and Economics .
I have been tutoring school and university students since 2009. I have tutored for over 1000 hours. Varying from school to university, I have worked with a variety of students and made sure that their grades and concepts are high and strong.
My students have secured A* and 7 points frequently. I am currently an Assistant Examiner with the IB and with other international boards. Students have appreciated my skill of breaking down rubrics and making skills easy to master.
