Personal Description:

I am an experienced tutor and Cambridge graduate offering both in school and private tuition tailored to pupils' interests, strengths and learning styles. I have 4 years of experience tutoring on a full time basis, both one on one and in a classroom/group setting in schools. I tutor German, History, Russian and maths to GCSE and A Level (including further Maths) . Teaching is a passion of mine, and I love to see students gain confidence in a subject they used to think impossible, or get to explore an area in more depth than at school.

For A Level I studied Maths, History , German and French (AAAA). At university I studied German and Russian (specializing in German and spending my year abroad in Berlin), as well as taking papers in intellectual and political History from the History faculty for my finals. I have also very much been involved in competitive debating: I have won or been a finalist in numerous national competitions and currently run a debating society at a local school

I have strong academic interests, particularly in History and contemporary politics. On the lighter side of things of things I am a avid fan of comedy and political dramas.

Before tutoring, I used to work as a translator.

Tutoring Experience:

My teaching experience includes:

- Full time employment at a London state school as an intervention tutor, running additional classes for students in Maths GCSE (2016-17).
- Employment at the same school to teach the A level further Maths pure modules (FP1, FP2, FP3)
- A large number of students taking GCSE and A Level Maths
- Tuition for 4 students taking GCSE German, for one of whom as their sole teacher. Results were A*, A*, A, B.
- Working as a teacher at the Global Young Leaders summer school. This course was aimed at teenagers interested in politics and debating.
- Work with a younger students to successfully apply for independent and grammar schools at 11 and 13+
- Two adult learners, one learning basic Russian, one brushing up on Maths for the Professional Skills Test required to become a teacher.
- GCSE Russian to two students
- Three students taking History A Level, results were (A*, A, C)
- EFL tutoring in German, where tutees included a student who successfully applied to study for postgraduate study at Oxford and a professional interpreter
- Running debate workshops for the Cambridge Union

Tutoring Approach:

Alongside thoroughly covering syllabus material, I believe it is important to focus on key skills: for Maths, breaking down tricky concepts in as simple and intuitive a way as possible, and practising their application, for History communication, argument construction and analysis, andin the case of language tuition, confidence and fluency as well as a solid grasp of the basic grammar and vocabulary.I aim to offer lessons which provide solid, structured exam preparation which are nonetheless stimulating and intellectually rewarding for a wide range of students. I believe that the best way to do this is in a considerate way, which encourages rather than demotivates students, with a sensitivity to a lack of confidence students may have in a given subject.
