Paddington Tutor

I am a recent graduate of English BA from King's College London, in which I received an Upper Second Class Honours. Over my school career, I received 6A*s and 5As at GCSE Level and 3As at A-Level.

Despite my age, I am an experienced tutor who has worked on a variety of subjects with students of various ages. Though I predominantly work with GCSE and A-Level students on essay-writing subjects (such as English Language and Literature, History, Religious Studies and Business Studies) I have tutored to a GCSE Level in Maths and have been regularly recruited to assist with 11+ preparation and entry examinations.

I am a compassionate, organised and dependable tutor with seven years of positive experiences. In most cases, I provide my own resources depending on what a particular student may require. One on one tutoring allows my students to move at their own pace whilst addressing any gaps in their knowledge, whilst keeping parents regularly updated on their child's progress.

Tutoring Experience

I have worked as an assistant for Kumon for approximately a year and a half, helping children with their Maths and English work as well as carrying out administrative duties such as marking and recording of work.

I worked as an English tutor for a Year 6 student in preparation for his English and Maths entranceexam at the Grammar School at Leeds, with the aim of getting him a full scholarship for his school fees (as he would not have been able to afford it otherwise). Not only did he receive the full scholarship, but he was offered extra funds to pay for his uniform and other necessary school costs. However, I am more proud of the fact that he has continued his keen interest in English Literature and books in general, something he was stubbornly reluctantly to engage in when I first met him.

Over the past year I have been tutoring a family of three in Finsbury Park. Their ages range from 10, 11 and 12. I have been tutoring them in Maths and English, and they have all experienced significant increases in their competence in their subjects and confidence in themselves.
The youngest child has learning difficulties; this is something I have not had previous experience with. However, I have adapted to his particular learning needs by tutoring him one to one (whereas I teach his brother and sister together), and working through all of his weaknesses (from his handwriting to his grammar, to his division to his multiplication) from a Key Stage 1 level onwards.

I have been tutoring a Year 9 student in Camden in English, Religious Studies and History since last year. Before I began tutoring him, he was a Level 4 in each of these subjects but now, he is solidly within the Level 6 boundary for English and high Level 5 for the rest.

I have worked as an 11+ tutor to two boys over the past year or so. Whilst both were regularly scoring below 50% in practice papers, that number increased to over 85%. In the end, both boys were successful in their 11+ exams.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is defined by the underlying belief that all students are smart, but as individuals, need assistance specific to their needs (their individual strengths and weaknesses). One on one tutoring allows my students to move at their own pace whilst addressing any gaps in their knowledge of topics.
