Experienced GCSE/IB and Entrance Exam Tutor with over 2,300 hours taught

I create my own creative resource packs for students, bespoke reading courses and have amassed over 2,300 hours of teaching students between 5-18 years old; teaching across London and on international placements in Russia, Brussels, Italy and New York, among others. I have helped students get places at Eton, Winchester, St Pauls, SPGS, Kings, Latymer, Westminster, NLCS; furthermore, around 96% of my students get into their first choice of school with consistent weekly or solely intensive lessons over a 6-8 month period. By tailoring all lessons to the student's interests, I have gained a reputation for instilling passion and confidence in all of my pupils, and thrive on developing creativity in young, intrigued minds.

Tutoring Experience (2300 hours taught)

I've worked in a variety of different roles in the education industry and have 4 years of experience. Due to my passion for children’s literature, I base my lessons around books her students might enjoy such as Mr Stink, Alice in Wonderland, Uglies and Harry Potter. I believe in adapting my teaching style and resources to match the personality of my pupils, and so ensuring that each pupil receives an individual learning experience tailored to maximise their own potential. I have experience with international and dyslexic students and has gained a reputation for my ability to build confidence and a passion for learning in her pupils. My students have received places at Sussex House, Colet Court, Bute, City, St. Pauls (boys and girls), Westminster, NLCS, Latymer, Eton and Winchester, among many others. I have a high success rating at GCSE, with students jumping boundaries from D to B and from C to A. I specialise in mentoring and taking students through the IB exam.
