Cambridge Graduate offers private tuition in London for 11+ exam preparation (all subjects)

Methodology

I graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in Chinese with Japanese. I then qualified as a secondary school teacher and taught Chinese and French for 4 years. Since then, I have been tutoring full-time and have well over 1000 hours' experience.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach a range of subjects but specialise in languages, 11+ and 13+ school entrance exams preparation. I have helped students with their applications to the following top schools: Alleyn’s, Benenden, Charterhouse, Cheltenham Ladies' College, City of London School, Downe House, Eton College, Godolphin, Godolphin & Latymer, Guildford High School for Girls, Harrow, Heathfield, King Edward VI Camp Hill School, King's Canterbury, Latymer Upper, Malborough, Merchant Taylor’s School, North London Collegiate, Putney High, Radley, Rugby, Sevenoaks, South Hampstead High, St Mary’s Ascot, St Paul’s School for Boys, St Paul’s Girls’ School, Wallington County Grammar School, Westminster, Winchester and Wycombe Abbey.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have the following qualifications:
University of Cambridge: Chinese with Japanese (MA);
Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for secondary school teaching;
A Levels: Chinese (A*), Japanese (A), Religious Studies (A*) and Economics (A)
11 A*s in the following GCSEs: English Literature, English Language, Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Chinese, Japanese, French, Italian, Latin and Religious Studies.

- How much do you charge?

It varies on the subject and whether the tuition is in person or online. See individual ad.

- Where do you teach?

I live in Battersea but am willing to travel.

- When are you available?

I tutor full-time so am very flexible, including during school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach students from Year 4 to University level, depending on the subject. Beyond GCSE, I can teach Chinese and Japanese.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have extensive experience tutoring online, and tend to use Skype as the means for doing this. I have several alternatives for overseas students such as BOTIM, IMO and Zoom.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I make every session productive and enjoyable, and all my students have hugely benefited from the programmes I have designed for them.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 4 years' classroom teaching experience (Chinese and French) and well over 1000 hours' (5 years') tutoring experience, teaching a range of subjects from Year 4 to University level.

For 2.5 years I have also worked as an Education Consultant. I provide academic assessment reports, advise families on school selection, accompany families on school tours, organise extra-curricular activities for students and translate marketing material into Mandarin for education agencies.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes. I have also registered with the update service, which means my DBS is always valid.
