Personal Description:

I'm an enthusiastic and creative multi-lingual tutor based in London.
I've just finished my French BA at UCL, and my coursework essay has been nominated for the R. Gapper undergraduate essay prize in French Studies. During my year abroad I studied at the Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris, in particular literature and theatre theory. I also completed an intensive actor training course at the Ecole du Jeu, Paris. Having studied at a prestigious school and been exposed to a variety of enriching experiences, especially due to my Polish heritage, I value the importance of a person's education in both academic and cultural terms. I find that tutoring provides an opportunity to impart personal experience and unique approaches to learning, which crucially help further cultivate a child's self-awareness and confidence in their education.

Tutoring Experience:

2015-2018

● Adult English conversation lessons with emphasis on pronunciation and intonation
● Proof-reading and English essay correction for university peers
● GCSE; English, French, History.
● 13+; English, French.
● 8+; English, French, History, Geography, Latin.

2013-2015

● 11+ English
● 7+; Verbal/Non-Verbal Reasoning, Reading
● Teaching English Reading and Speaking to 4 and 6 year old French students

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that personal tutoring should encourage a different relationship towards education to that experienced in the classroom. It should establish a distinctly personal and relaxed learning environment that caters to a student’s academic strengths and weaknesses in equal measure. I discovered this when I first tutored for a family friend, whose daughter’s interest in French quickly evolved after a few tutoring sessions – she realized how she could make her homework less of a burden and more enjoyable, and started using methods that made her excited to learn.

Having recently completed my higher education, the experiences of examinations are vivid and I can relate to a child’s anxiety or stress about deadlines and essays. I like to focus on developing specific techniques that a student can continue to use independently when consolidating schoolwork, during revision for exams and the holiday break. By setting manageable short-term tasks, recognizing and subsequently tackling challenges that may arise, my tutoring approach is tailored to the individual, their interests and personality, and relieves the pressure of daunting deadlines and tests.

I have a background in theatre and performance, and so I often like to use techniques and associative games to develop memory and imagination. Inspiring a positive attitude towards academic study is key!
