Personal Description:

I am a University of Cambridge graduate (Double-First Class honours), with a degree in world languages and literatures. I am a fluent speaker of Russian, Arabic, French, German and Hebrew. I have a deep understanding of the cultures of the countries where these languages are spoken, and have lived and worked in Russia, Ukraine, Egypt, Morocco, Switzerland and Jerusalem.

Tutoring Experience:

I have seven years of experience tutoring a wide range of subjects with stellar results, both one-on-one and to small groups.

- I have taught Latin from scratch to A Level, and enabled my students to get A* grades.

- I have tutored students in French, German and Modern Hebrew GCSE and A Level, all with great results.

- I have taught Modern Standard Arabic and Arabic dialects to a diverse range of clients (e.g. commercial, defence, academic) from beginners to advanced levels with great results. Dialects taught include Egyptian, Levantine [Syrian, Palestinian, Jordanian, Lebanese], Gulf [Saudi] and Maghrebi [Moroccan, Algerian, Tunisian]).

- I taught all levels of English as a foreign language to Arabic and Hebrew speakers while living in Jerusalem.

- I taught myself Maths A-Level within one year, achieving an A grade.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in taking each individual's capabilities and requirements in order to craft the perfect course of study for each student. Having learned many languages as a non-native speaker, I can empathise with the learner and tailor lessons to deal with the most difficult issues in the language for learners.

For those preparing for exams, my approach is that exam technique is key, regardless of the subject being learned. My lessons focus on teaching you the practical strategies of how to tackle the exam so that you can achieve your full potential.

I am results-oriented and ensure that each lesson has a specific target, that builds sustained growth in the tutee's abilities.

For those beginning a new language and desiring to develop fluency, I focus on building confidence quickly with practical speaking skills and concentrating on useful vocabulary and grammar (and, of course, ensuring that the grammar is never scary!).
