This is how 2 referees rated Karina:
I am an Oxford-educated outstanding and fully qualified English teacher with experience in teaching KS3 (ages 11-13), GCSE, A-level and undergraduate level. I am currently completing my PhD in English Literature at Queen Mary University of London. Prior to my teaching career I qualified as a barrister.
I have extensive experience of teaching, both within the classroom and as a private tutor. I am currently a part-time lecturer at the University of Reading. My most recent school level role was as a Head of English at an Academy in south London. Prior to that, I qualified as an English teacher at a girls' Catholic school in central London through the highly respected Teach First programme. My students' results are always exceptional: for instance in 2014 my A-level class attained 100% A*-B, with 50% of my students attaining A*s and 2 students attaining full marks in their A2 modules.
My passion is guiding students to academic and personal excellence. I open my students' eyes to their full potential and show them how to achieve it. Through fostering aspiration and self-belief, my students always become motivated, enthusiastic and independent learners, ready to face challenges with confidence and resilience.

Karina was great in her approach. She requested my syllabus, past exam papers and examples of previous exam/essays so we could make a detailed plan of how to build up my skills and how I could successful manage the required workload.
Karina's comments on essays are extremely helpful. In the past couple of weeks my writing skills got more much sophisticated, my structure clearer and I increasingly have a good understanding of what is expected of me. As my university did not provide any sample problem questions for us to practice she wrote one for me, which helped me a lot to practice my skills.
The mooting preparation was in particular successful as with her preparation I managed to get a first! She helped me with finding the strongest arguments and also prepared me for the actual moot by simulation the situation and asking me difficult questions.
Karina is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, reliable and great in explaining also the most difficult concepts.
I can't recommend her highly enough!
