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.
Sasha's last completed Music job with Paulo: 1-2 hrs/week - Dip ABRSM
I like to make learning a language an enjoyable experience, whether that be French or English. I believe it should be fun, satisfying, exciting and mainly conversational, alongside the study of grammar, writing and reading. I have the ability to adjust my teaching method in order to suit the learner, as I believe everybody comes at languages from a different angle, some from an aural perspective and others from a more grammatical understanding. It is important for me to understand the learners' approach so I can help them fully immerse in the subject. I believe that languages are a vital skill in this global world today and would love to help you improve and work towards fluency in either French or English.
Music tutoring; I tutor Music GCSE and A.S/A-Level, piano grades 1-7, voice (jazz/pop), composition and music theory levels 1-5.
I believe ultimately the study of music should be fun and fulfilling and that the fundamental basics of music (e.g. scales/understanding of harmony & theory/listening skills/analytical skills) are required in order to progress with excellence. Musical examinations are not essential in order to be a great musician, but they do help one improve technique, precision and theory. GCSE and A-level music may well be necessary in order to study music at university level, particularly at music conservatoires. I consider music to be mainly about training the ear and playing with meaning and expression.

PHILLIPPA's last completed Music job with Evelyn: 1-2 hrs/week - Expand theory knowledge and be able to pass ABRSM exam.
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 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.

"The learning exercises were always set around my interest areas, making tuition both fun and effective. Following my sessions with Andrew, I have developed a more concise way of communicating. My writing now has more flow, which helps me say what I need to say." - Neil , Newtownabbey
I'm passionate about nurturing the potential of each student with whom I have the privilege of working. With over 10 years' experience as a Learning Coach with countless individuals and groups, Diploma in Life Coaching as well as a successful university graduate (1st class hons in Philosophy) and additional Masters research degree in Developmental Psychology, I previously taught at Secondary school and most recently trained nursing professionals to pass their IELTS exams.
I am also a regular public speaker and workshop leader in the private health sector, delivering courses in areas from stress-management and communication skills, to self-care and personal development.
