I work better in one-to-one sessions, as I am able to quickly build rapport with students and uniquely tailor my teaching to the student's learning style. I often use anecdotes and real life examples to create connections in learning for retentive memory.
I am an Academic Mentor for a Sixth Form and support students who have difficulty in BTEC Business L2 & 3 as well as A-levels. I support with English, R.E., History, Japanese, Psychology, Sociology, Business & Drama. I also proof read essays, coursework, personal statements and CVs. I have a First Class Degree in Business Administration and have worked with young people specifically for the last 2 years. I am also a learning mentor and will read up on subject areas I don't know to support the student adequately..

Perfect! Words can’t describe how amazing Diamond is with her work. I recommend Diamond if you’re wanting some help and advice on your CV and Personal statement. She is organised, patient and understanding.
Perfect! Diamond was an amazing tutor. She was able to help me and improve my writing style and coursework. My grade has improved massively. Diamond is patient and is even willing to go through questions with me outside of lesson time. She is amazing and I would definitely recommend her.
Very proactive but just needs to be more organised with time
Diamond has a lot of charisma and a remarkable ability to engage those she interacs with. She is very knowledgeable and it great at breaking down concepts to help understanding.
Diamond is organised, she is thorough and has the ability to not only relate to and encourage the children she teaches but also discipline them accordingly and appropriately. Overall she is a loving character. She is trustworthy and has continually displayed good morals amongst children and adults alike.
Hello guys! If you want an effective, passionate and determined tutor? Diamond I'd say is the best you'll ever find. She really does pay close attention to detail and takes her time to break things down, until you understand. I've experienced her help and i never am left feeling clueless or timid to ask questions. Miss Diamond is a open book and will really go out of her way to bring the best out of you. Miss D definitely has a wide range of knowledge and great wisdom at what she does. I'm so keen to llearn each time she teaches me. I rate her 5 stars! Go ahead and message her! I'm so thankful for your support and help MISS DIAMOND!
Thank you for all your help!
To Whom it May Concern:
It is my pleasure to strongly recommend the tutoring services of miss Diamond. Who in my opinion and great appreciation gives a very useful and professional helpful academic tutoring lessons.
Since I came to this country she has always been an enthusiastic teacher for me. Helping with grammatical errors, idiomatic expressions and always encouraging me to make new levels of excellence.
It’s not just her teaching skills that impress me, however. Diamond was a joy to work with because of her positive attitude and ability to never give up on people. Her commitment and empathy were also necessary and valued not just by myself, but also by anyone I know that works with her.
If you need more information or specific examples, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com

I fully recommend Diamond. She's not just an amazing teacher but her personality is gold. She's very different and unique. She's very sharp academically and is very knowledgeable. She will not fail your child/ren, a very hard worker she is :).
She was able to provide me with suitable chemistry resources and advise to help me structure my chemistry revision.
It helped me mentally prepare better. Diamond will push to make sure you’re concerns are addressed before moving on. Definitely recommend her!
Diamond has a heart of gold and is soo patient how she works with others older than her younger than her how she loves anyone that gets her as a tutor is very lucky - so blessed to see her efforts flourish , her conduct and communication makes it so easy to go to her for help .... oh and bonus she’s funny so there is never a dull day or dumb question with Diamond
I’ve known her through online bible study calls and honestly I have to say she’s an amazing teacher. She’s patient with everyone and not only will you understand the concepts but she always relates the topic to the person and how they’re like so they can understand in their terms. I can ensure she’s a favourite among the students she tutors
