Information About Perpetua - Hove tutor - (6 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Perpetua:
I have a diverse tutoring and proofreading portfolio spanning the last eight years, and have recently expanded toward providing consultancy for writing and researching too. I teach mostly from my house, a five-minute drive away from Brighton. Skype and email are always good too.
I come from Singapore, but have been in the UK for the last five years.
With me, you invest in quality for your education.
I have tutored professionally for more than eight years, preparing my students for major certificate examinations (e.g. ALevels), school entrance examinations, intelligence tests, and tests. I collaborated with the guardian of a boarding house in Singapore where she entrusted many of her students to me. I also taught for a term in a junior college in Singapore. Additionally, I have successfully prepared more than fifteen students for university and/or college interviews, where we have strategised and practised the drill from dressing to cultivating the right impression to making your CV stand out to the scary interview questions.
Tutoring is intuitive. That's what you'll be getting from me, an approach tailor-made to your goals and personality. Whether you're the student who wants to go to Oxbridge, the student who is struggling as you're new to the country, or the student who needs the figurative crack of the (painless!) academic whip to succeed. I've done crash courses for smart students who want the extra edge to their answering techniques, crash courses for the stranded students who are in a state of panic, and steady revision for the devoted learner.
We'll make our lessons come to life. If you're struggling to understand economic principles, chances are you've learned it in a dull way divorced from your understanding of reality. Well, whether you love cars or shopping for earrings, we will adapt it that way to help you grasp it.
But you're not just getting someone who adapts to you. You're also getting someone with a knack for people and who's been professionally (psychologically) trained to help people reach their goals. You'll get someone who will facilitate you in your learning, empower you with the *other* techniques (time management? stress relief?) that they don't teach you in school, and someone with loads of experience in tutoring. And, don't we all appreciate someone who can show us the shortcuts to learning concepts quickly and successfully?
You're also getting a wordsmith who will teach you how to write the most beautiful answers in your examinations-- a skill that you'll take forward with you throughout your education career and beyond.
NOTE: When you invest in yourself by learning with me, I am also investing my time and energy in you. Any reschedules and cancellations must be made 72 hours in advance, or the slot will be charged.
