Personal Description:

I am an experienced and dedicated tutor with a degree in English from the University of Oxford, and a Masters in Classical and Contemporary Text (Acting) from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. I specialise in tutoring English language and literature, though I also have a wide knowledge of a variety of subjects including Theatre Studies, and experience teaching both Maths and Science for younger pupils.

I have excellent academic credentials, and also have varied interests particularly in the arts, as I have acted in many productions, play the violin, and dabble in aerial circus acrobatics!

I am a friendly, patient and confident tutor, and I enjoy the opportunity that tutoring gives to talk to my students and help them in subjects that I am enthusiastic about.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring for almost three years, most often through reputable private tutoring agencies in London, such as Bonas Macfarlane, Bright Young Things and Kings Tutors.

During this time I have been teaching students a range of subjects, from Maths to English and Educational Studies, and from age 4 up to degree level. I have successfully guided students through entrance exams and interviews for a number of private and public schools, and universities including Oxbridge. I have also thoroughly researched and had experience tutoring for the Scottish educational system, and I am fully aware of what is required at each level.

Prior to this, I travelled to Hong Kong and taught English as a foreign language there. Over the course of five weeks I taught a wide variety of ages and abilities, from 8 year old children in a primary school to 20 year old students who were about to leave college and apply to universities.

Some success stories and testimonials:
- 11+ tuition in English, Maths and Reasoning with a pupil who was successful at every school to which they applied
- GCSE English Literature, improved a student`s grade from a B to an A*
- A Level English Literature, helped to raise the grade of a pupil with cerebral palsy from a C- to an A
- Successfully tutored pupils through Oxbridge applications
- 5-7+, helped a student with basic skills through educational play, up to an acceptance into schools through the 7+ exam

"Miss Zoe is an excellent tutor. I`ve learnt so much since we started lessons. From prompting me as we analyse different types of literature to thoroughly improving my writing skills, Zoe has been a real help." - Nabihah Rahman

"I think she is a wonderful and brilliant tutor who explains information very clearly and is always there to guide me when I am stuck. She is always determined to get the best out of me and sees how capable I am of writing well and answering questions when I doubt myself. Her challenging questions allow me to think outside the box and open my views on different perspectives… Zoe is always on time and very organised and is always finding out extra resources for me during her spare time which are relatable to my work. I would definitely recommend her to other students since we get a lot done in the hours we have, and I am left with a much clearer understanding of what I am learning." - Tashnia Uddin

Tutoring Approach:

I tutor on a student-by-student approach. Teaching in schools nowadays is so often mass produced and does not offer everyone the opportunities that they deserve. Everyone has a different way of learning and I think that the best way to teach someone is to work with them and find out what that method is, that may not fully be addressed in the school environment. I also believe that talking and debate is often the best way to widen a student's knowledge and make them think more about the subject, improving their ability to formulate coherent arguments about a topic. In my tutorials I often go through written work and past papers with pupils, discussing both the major and more detailed themes of their subject, whilst also setting different activities to both enthuse and instigate thinking about issues in a variety of ways.
