I have over eight years experience tutoring for the 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+, 11+ and Common Entrance exams in Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.
All my students have gained places at top London schools such as:
St Paul’s (boys and girls)
Godolphin and Latymer
City of London (boys and girls)
And many more.
I have an extensive knowledge of London schools, both private and grammar, and can offer help and guidance throughout the application process.
I also tutor French up to University level, as well as English and History up to A-level.
Finally, I also help with Oxbridge and UCAS applications, for students wanting to study English and History. All of my students (11 in total) received places at their colleges of choice.

I love my subjects, and enjoy finding different, engaging ways through which to help my students grapple with them. This is why I started working for Spires and other tutoring companies just over 3 years ago now, helping school pupils and adults alike with everything from A Level English to Greek language learning. I currently work as a research assistant in Oxford University's Phonetics Laboratory, but before this I worked for seven months in a girls' boarding school in Oxford providing Sixth Form students with academic and pastoral support, coaching many through their Oxbridge applications. I have also volunteered over the years in primary and secondary schools, helping students who are on the autism spectrum with their work and communication skills. This has given me experience with pupils of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
I always build a completely unique scheme of work for each individual client and I pride myself on a creative and colourful teaching style which employs tasks and assignments to engage my students with complex ideas in a clear and accessible fashion. I always keep my lessons interactive and use visual stimuli such as images and videos to support my tutee's learning process...
I have achieved excellent results with numerous clients receiving the esteemed 8 // 9 Grade in their English exams.
In the 6 years since I began tutoring my work has mostly centred on helping A-Level English students with both coursework and exam prep. I have worked with some of London's leading agencies including Bonas Macfarlane and Craig De Silva and have undertaken in depth work-experience at Grafton Primary School, London. I have also tutored students at some of the UK's leading independent schools including Harrow and Westminster.

I have worked as a professional teacher for the last 5 years. Because of this, I am very knowledgeable about my subject and what it takes to be successful in the examinations. I consistently look for new creative and engaging ways to present material and one of my best qualities as a teacher is my ability to break down difficult material, making it both easily digested but also relevant to the student so it is easily remembered. My recent exam success rate is a 95% pass rate, with 60% achieving A-A*. I am very organised and efficient in my teaching so will always be prepared for any online tutoring.
I am fluent in three languages and have experience teaching drama to children and adults. I've been doing online tutoring for Theatre Studies, English and Chinese for about two years.
For Drama students:
My lesson usually consists of a warm up, recap of the previous lesson, or a song! Then we'll get into main lesson content. I use powerpoint, images and video clips for references. I would also recommend books for you to read and some practical homework/quiz for you to prepare!
If you need help with working on a monologue, I am also happy to be your acting coach. Please message me for specific requests.
For Chinese students:
For Primary students, storytelling and writing will be something that we could do together. For Secondary students, we will practice comprehension and structuring an essay, go through the syllabus and past paper to prepare for your exams.
If you already speak Chinese and need someone to practice/ recap, I am happy to share culture, history and other interesting topics with you.
I always tailor made my lesson plans for students based on their objectives. Please feel free to drop me a message!
The oldest academic discipline...English. To be good at English means to excel in many areas. I am fully equipped to teach this subject to Primary School, GCSE, AS and A Level, Adult Learner, SEN and ESOL. I am a BA Hons graduate in English Literature and Language (2:1). I have tutoring, journalism, proof-reading and book writing experience. I have recently tutored in a few projects for University students to help them achieve the top grades. I take care and pride in my students and work hard to make each one a success. I also have experience teaching Primary school English in France and have even been a children's entertainer! My method of one-on-one tutoring focuses on upmost care for my student's needs and utilising methods for better learning practices. I'd be happy to answer any questions and explain the process to you. I truly love the English discipline and knowing that there are so many students who would love to improve their English fills me with utter happiness and the best motivation for helping the student fledglings fly in the subject. I love to fill all my students with confidence and feel very rewarded in doing so.
I also tutor Psychology and Drama to all levels as I studied these for College A Levels. Many aspects of English integrate with these. Psychology is for those with an interest in the incredible workings of the human mind and Drama is for the more expressive students who feel they have a place on stage. Both these subjects have influenced me throughout my life so I have a natural passion and aptitude for them so will be more than happy to help my student succeed in any one of these too. You may select more than one subject for me to tutor you on and I only tutor what I specialise in.
I am an online private tutor which means I can cater to your every need in an easy, accessible mode. It is a two way interaction where I guide you through what it is you are studying and suggest/correct and provide you with consistent feedback.
A Level exam boards I have tutored: AQA, Edexcel, OCR
I am an excellent communicator, so able to explain complicated things easily. I love my subject and my enthusiasm shines through. I'm kind and positive with pupils, and always willing to go the extra mile.
