Personal Description:

I am an experienced tutor who specialises in preparing students for their 11+, as well as KS3/4/5 Japanese & Italian. I have a BA (Hons), two Masters degrees and I am currently in my second year of a PhD in Criminology at the University of London.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring since secondary school. During my MAs- one in Japanese Studies and one in Criminology- I helped foreign students with the problems they were having with spoken and written English. My MAs took me to Japan where I spent two years working as a full time teacher with children, teenagers and adults. This was a hugely satisfying experience and is one of the reasons why I wish to keep teaching during- and after- my PhD.

Over the last year I've focused on two different areas of tuition: 11+ entrance examinations; and Italian & Japanese examinations (for all stages). So far it's been an enormously enjoyable and gratifying experience.

The feedback from all my students thus far has been extremely positive, with frequent appraisals of my teaching style- students often commenting on its effectiveness, clarity & helpfulness- and my general disposition- students always feeling that there will be a sympathetic ear should they be facing any problems with the subject matter.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to personalise my classes- both in relation to the particular student's study goals and his/her personality- in order to best meet their expectations. In order to do this, during the first class, I find out what the student wants and needs, as well as the time frame within which the classes will be operating. This will often incorporate an assessment of the student's current level- in order to ascertain his/her obvious weaknesses and strengths- and a discussion surrounding the goals of our classes. From there I create a structured learning program in accordance with the student's needs.

I am patient, a good listener and a good motivator. As is the case with any committed teacher, the classes will inevitably not only benefit the student academically, but also psychologically- his/her confidence, discipline & focus, for instance, often improve markedly in the long-term.

Fundamentally, I really enjoy tutoring and I gain an enormous amount of satisfaction from watching those I tutor become engaged in their studies. There really is nothing better. My continued desire to pursue my academic interests must- at least to some extent- be indebted to those who have taught me; and I want to help others in the same way as I was helped.

I don't, at present, have a lot of spaces but please feel free to contact me if you're interested and I assure you I will get back to you very promptly.
