Personal Description:

I'm a graduate of both the IB diploma and Biology at the University of Bristol (2012--2015). Other University level experience includes University of Milan (2015-2016), and University of Nottingham (based at Royal Derby Hospital). I am a Londoner, and attended state school. I have a passion for providing quality teaching to students and have had professional tutoring and mentoring jobs since age 19.

Tutoring Experience:

My first experience of teaching came upon completing my classical music studies (principal instrument is the guitar) with the Trinity Guildhall school of music at age 16, I taught flamenco and Latin american guitar in school masterclasses. During 6th form I tutored and mentored students in lower years as part of a school program. This included children with learning difficulties, and really gave me an insight into the difference which a tutor can make in a students life both academically and otherwise. At University I worked in a widening participation project and got a job in a local academy teaching secondary students (age 11-18) Spanish, Portuguese and IT. I was also a mentor for the sixth form students, helping them with their applications to University.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to be organised, but let the student lead their learning. This means that before a session I will read up on the topic and gather resources (often made myself), think about how I will deliver the information and arrive with this plan in mind. When I do arrive to teach a student, I gauge their mood and see if they would like me to take the lead or whether they want to take the session in another direction. In other words, I try to give the student maximum control over their learning experience but always have a plan in case they want to look to me for guidance.
