Alongside her university studies, in her final two years, Natasha established herself as a Private Tutor, tutoring students weekly at varying levels. She recently graduated with an English BA from University College London.
As a self-professed Shakespeare-enthusiast, Natasha’s favourite topic to teach is the Renaissance Period. She particularly enjoys teaching the Shakespeare element of the GCSE course and Shakespeare plays that are often on the A-Level syllabus. She has frequently taught Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth and Othello.
Natasha has extensive experience tutoring students in English ranging from Primary level to Degree level. She has aided students in preparing for SATS, GCSES, A-LEVELS and has enabled one student to shift their University essay grades from a fail to 2:1s.
She has taught both in one-on-one and class room environments. Natasha believes that one-to-one tuition enables the greatest enhancement of the pupil’s skills, but feels comfortable providing group lessons. She believes group lessons can sometimes be worthwhile as it allows students to debate with one another, engaging them further with the topic.
My tutoring style is communicative and approachable. I believe that the best route for progression in a student’s learning is encouragement. Students are often too willing to focus upon faults in their work which all too frequently results in compromising their exam performance. I aim to highlight a student’s strengths primarily, not ignoring their weaknesses, but framing them as a challenge that we can tackle together. I strongly believe in allowing lessons to be driven by student curiosity and have noticed that when a student becomes engaged in literature, their results soon reflect this engagement.
Although I have no formal training in working with students with learning difficulties, I have previously worked for a number of months with a pupil with Global Developmental Delay, in addition to working with a student with reading difficulties for over two years.
Above all, I encourage my students to read in their spare time. Books not only feed a child’s vocabulary, but also their imagination.
