I am a full time professional tutor with over four years teaching experience. I graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in English Literature. I love teaching one on one and have built up a constant and large client basis over the years. I am primarily an English tutor but I have tutored a lot of other humanities subjects. Im very personal and approachable and my age is an asset when it comes to current teaching methods and identifying with students.
I have been teaching for four years in London privately and through some of the top agencies in the UK. I have taught over 100 different clients over the years, some I have been with for four years. I have had a lot of success from tutoring including: improving GCSE results from C to A*; getting students the best results and into their first choice schools at 11+; helping students into their first choice universities including Oxbridge; and a number of other accomplishments for my students.
I think the key to doing well in academia is understanding. There is no point giving someone a list of rules to follow, that's what school is for. My job is to make the material accessible and to let the student come to their own understanding. Something will only stick when you have come to realise the answer for yourself. But I am there every step of the way to guide you. As cliche as it might sound learning has to be fun: that means you have to get pleasure from the task at hand and satisfaction from your own accomplishment. I'm very adaptable and flexible and can tailor my tutoring to whatever needs the pupil might have.
Due to my full schedule I do have a 24hour cancellation policy.
