Map for Laura (Miss)

Personal Description:

I am a professional violinist, pianist and part-time art historian with a degree in History of Art from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. I was also a recipient of a scholarship to the Hampshire Specialist Music Course at the age of 16, and went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music, London. Following my degree from SOAS, I also trained in acting at the Jacques Le Coq, Paris, and City Lit, London, going on to work as professional actor with the Hampstead Theatre, Royal Court and BBC Radio Drama. I absolutely love foreign languages and culture, and speak fluent French, Italian and Finnish, and tutor all these languages. I developed a passion for Classical Civilisations whilst studying this for A-Level and have sustained this interest through private reading and study.

Tutoring Experience:

For the past 4 years I have taught offered subjects to groups and individuals age 4-60. From 2014-2016 I lived in Dubai, UAE, where alongside working as a violinist, I gave private tuition in Italian, French, Finnish, Drama, Classics and History of Art, in addition to the above! I absolutely love teaching, whether it be revision and exam preparation for GCSE/A-LEVEL students, or simply exploring an entirely new subject for the casual learner. It is immensely rewarding for both the pupil and the teacher. My approach is holistic and explorative and I thoroughly believe in learning and soaking up new knowledge beyond the typical classroom environment.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is pupil-centered, led by the needs and requirements of the student. I have a very warm, friendly character, am an excellent communicator and am extremely passionate about my teaching. This leads to enjoyable and effective learning. I use a variety of media and encourage breaking away from books, the internet and 'desk' based resources, to visit places of interest in our surroundings etc (depending on the subject, of course), to inform our learning and knowledge. I am flexible to the requirements of the pupil, and whether the situation demands intensive preparation in a short amount of time, or a more gentle, exploratory approach over a longer period of time.
