I am a lecturer of Economics at a university in London and a graduate from UCL (University College London) with both undergraduate and masters degree in Comparative Business Economics. I have tutored for 8 years now and also did some tutoring during my school years. I am also winner of a number of Maths Olympiads, creative writing and my current students all achieved A-B's in their exams and got into the universities of their first choice. I am very pleased to have contributed towards their success and I am incredibly proud of each and every of them. I have experience in getting the best out of even most difficult students who have difficulty learning. As long as students show interest and are willing to work, I believe I can get the maximum results from them.
I have now tutored for a number of years starting with my BA years and also did some teaching at school whilst doing my A levels. Please see below for feedback from my recent students and their parents:
" Ellie in particular has become a real mentor to Tara and has opened her mind to the possibilities of different routes into further education. The impact she has had on Tara and her ability to engage her and motivate her to study has been nothing short of remarkable." P.D
" Ellie was brilliant and squeezed in the entire syllabus in the time allotted. Frankie got 95% in the subject area she found most difficult (thanks to Ellie) and got a B overall. . Many thanks for your kind assistance finding such an excellent tutor in Ellie." D.W
I have tutored over 100 students over the last 5 years most of whom have been referring me to their friends and family ever since. I am very proud of how well my tutees have done and the great things they went on to achieve. I am very fortunate to have been a mentor to a number of them and am very pleased to have made however small of a positive change to their lives.
I have a patient approach towards tutoring. I tend to go over previous lessons at the start of each lesson to make sure the tutee has acquired good understanding of the subject. I also tend to prepare tests and homework where the tutee can apply what he/she has learnt and see if they are comfortable and knowledgable enough about a specific subject matter. I do provide my students with a wide range of materials and reading as well as a fair amount of homework that i expect them to spread over the days. a few months before the exams, i tend to go over past exam papers one by one as past papers tend to be the best practice in preparation.
I'm a firm believer in getting the best out of all my students and believe that all my students are capable of achieving the highest grades. I always try to tailor tutoring according to each student's pace and ability and always ready to go extra mile to help them to understand the subject taught.
Please note I require 24 hours notice for cancellation otherwise I charge full lesson fee.
