Personal Description:

Welcome! I'm a native German Cambridge tutor, holding a First Class Honours BA in Media, Communication and Cultural Studies with cross-curricular modules in Psychology and French.

Throughout the three years I spent at university, I was involved in Student Representation as well as the Mentoring Scheme the University put into place to improve student-staff communication and student transition into Unversity life. I like keeping busy and accepting new challenges, which I why the activities and interests I pursued at university were so diverse: I was part of the Kickboxing Society, played Basketball, took on the role of an Energy Saving Ambassador in halls, volunteered as a Student Advisor at the Student Advice Centre, and worked part-time as a Teaching Assistant at a local Primary School.

I have taken Piano, Acting and Singing lessons, and played in several musicals and theatre performances. Summer 2014 I spent as a volunteer in the Philippines, giving Art and English lessons at a school for disadvantaged children. It was there that I took my PADI Advanced Open Water Diving Test.

When I get the time, I like to relax watching any kind of nature documentary I come across, or going out for a stroll with my friends.

Tutoring Experience:

I currently tutor students attending the Perse, Eton, Westminster and Hills Road College. I also proof-read essays in Humanities.

I started tutoring as a summer job in 2011, however, quickly realised that I enjoy teaching, and so decided to support some of my students while they climbed the steep ladder of their educational career.

At university I was selected to particpate in a competitive "Work Experience" Scheme, which involved a placement at a local primary school. There, I taught French in six classes (Year 3, Year 5 and Year 6), preparing them for their end of year exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I find that a relaxed and fun learning environment aids information retention. I like working with the student to find out how to make the subject something they can truly enjoy learning. This is why I like to make it clear that I am open and approachable for any kinds of concerns, questions or suggestions throughout the lessons.

Since I have been taught in various different academic curricula (Austrian, Spanish-British, British, as well as both state and independent institutions) I have found that the right attitude combined with a well-structured and balanced learning schedule, outweighs any kind of rigid study regime that results in the regurgiation of information, rather than independent understanding. I like to keep the goal in mind - whether that may be a final or entrance exam, or a stage within an application process - to reach the student's full potential.
