Information About Gabriella - Kensington tutor - (10 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Gabriella:
I adore getting to know my students' quirks and eccentricities. I try my best to make lessons fun and engaging.
Alongside teaching, I am completing my YA fiction novel, compiling a poetry anthology, and putting together a research proposal for PhD study.
I attended Hillcrest Grammar School, Marple Sixth Form College, and The University of Salford. I’m a recent graduate; therefore, I'm familiar with how the education system functions; how to revise and prep efficiently to achieve the best grades.
In 2016, I was awarded The Vice Chancellor's Scholarship to complete a Master's Degree in Creative Writing. I passed with a Merit. In 2015, I completed a three year Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature & Creative Writing, result: First-Class.
Ultimately, I’m super eager to contribute my skills and experience to guide your child and hope to have the opportunity to speak with you further.

I would highly recomend Gabriella as an at home tutor
After many messages back and forth (which was a total waste of my valuable time and could have been spent preparing for lessons), I explained honestly and kindly that although April is my busiest month, I was happy to accommodate you anytime before 1:30pm. Additionally, I said there was no pressure if you did not want to continue with me as a tutor.
Then, miraculously, you agreed to the times I suggested in the first instance. However, by this point, I was so stressed out with your ludicrous demands, I calmly said:
“The organisation of these lessons has been stressful, which leads me to believe the teaching process will not be pleasant either, and in fact, I would prefer not to teach your child.”
You replied with a disingenuous and insulting message, insinuating that I was a tutor who took advantage of parents. You go on to say that the reason I’d changed my mind was because I was ‘scared off’ by your ‘vigilant’ parenting. I don’t think leaving your 7 year-old with a stranger is very vigilant, do you?
To be completely honest, I am unbelievably relieved that I never have to meet these authoritarian parents.
Lastly, to those good-natured parents reading this searching for an honest, reliable, and responsible tutor for their son or daughter, I can provide all messaging between Kushi’s family and I as evidence to back-up my truthful statement. I never met this family in person, so they haven’t a clue about my teaching competency, but feel free to peruse over my other brilliant 5 star reviews which are imbued with gratitude, respect, and most importantly honesty.
Thanks for reading.
