IB Diploma graduate offering lessons in IB Psychology HL, IB Biology HL, IB Math SL and Swedish in London

Methodology

My teaching method is based around teaching the student how to learn rather than just teaching the material itself. I believe that patience, honesty and flexibility is vital as a tutor. It is essential for me to adapt to each student and their individual needs. I, therefore, focus a lot on preparation; I always try to have a plan for the lesson and an awareness of any challenges the student might be facing at the moment. By being open with my own experiences, I aim to create a positive environment where the student feels at ease.

Experience

I am an IB graduate currently studying Experimental Psychology at University College London (UCL). During my IB Diploma, I studied Psychology HL, Swedish HL, English A Literature HL, History SL, Biology SL, Mathematics SL and TOK. I was awarded 43 points for my hard efforts, and believe I am well-equipped with tools and techniques to help other students excel in their IB Diploma. I am based in London but am happy to do both online and face-to-face lessons. I am originally from Sweden but have lived in both Paris and London, as well as travelled in South America and Asia after my IB graduation. I believe my tutoring would be valuable in encouraging the success of both first-year and second-year students. Don't hesitate to contact me if You have any questions - I look forward to hearing from You.

Klara's CV

Education and Qualifications:

2014-2017: Gymnasium Degree IB Diploma Programme, Katedralskolan, Lund
The IB programme is an internationally acclaimed and academically challenging degree which prepared me for further study abroad.
Upon completion of the degree, I was accustomed to studying in English, writing scientific reports, thinking critically and processing large amounts of information.
My efforts on the programme were recognised when I was awarded a scholarship for extraordinary results in 2017.

2010-2014: Secondary School Degree, Kunskapsskolan, Lund
Kunskapsskolan is an independent secondary school that adopts an individual plan, personally shaped for each student.
The course places emphasis on individual responsibility - each student must plan and adhere to a personalised timetable, set by the students themselves.
As a result of this unique teaching style, I developed my organisation skills and learned to take responsibility for my own education. I was able to surpass the goals I set myself, graduating from Kunskapsskolan with the highest score in 2014.

Languages:

Swedish - Native
English – Fluent in both writing and speech
French – Limited knowledge in writing and speech

Relevant Experience:

Au pair for the Barton family 09/2019 - 07/2020
London
Working as an au pair for the Barton family in Clapham, London.
I took care of Callum, 11 years old, and Malory, 12 years old.
My job was to ensure that the children got their homework done, have their rooms tidy and bags packed for various sports and activities.
I also made sure that the house was clean and tidy. I did the children's’ laundry and cooked their dinner.
This experience deepened my understanding of cultural differences in regards to child rearing and my child care skills overall.

Au Pair for the Kagan family 2017-2018
Paris

During a year abroad in Paris, I worked for the Kagan family, caring for their three young children.

My main work tasks involved picking up and dropping off the children at school as well and various after-school activities: helping with homework, cooking, cleaning and playtime.
Being an au pair gave me the opportunity to explore a new culture, improve my skills in a foreign language, as well as having responsibility for 3 amazing, but nevertheless, demanding children.
This experience required me to be consistently organised, take great responsibility and multi-task.

Waitress and Bartender at Restaurant Po’Boy Café 2017-2018

Whilst living in Paris I worked as a waitress at Po’boy Café, a restaurant in the centre of the city.
My main responsibilities included serving food and drinks, whilst ensuring excellent customer service.

Promotor for Amelia (women’s magazine) 2017
Gekås - Ullared
During the summer of 2017, I worked as a seller for Amelia’s summer campaign.
In this position, I acted as the face of the company, interacting with hundreds of passing individuals on a daily basis and using situational selling techniques to increase magazine subscriptions.
The campaign took place at one of Sweden’s best selling locations - Gekås Ullared. This experience helped me to develop my selling and interpersonal skills and required determination to secure sales.
Tasks also included receiving deliveries of products as well as organising the inventory.

Waitress at restaurant Ayam Dimashq and restaurant Laziza 2014-2017
Malmö
From 2014-2017 I was employed at the Lebanese restaurant Laziza, before moving to its sister restaurant Ayam Dimashq from 2016-2017.

Waitress at Falsterbo Horse Show 2015
Falsterbo
In 2015 I served as a waitress during the Falsterbo Horse Show, a professional body which arranges some of the biggest competitions within the equestrian world.
I served in the VIP section during breakfast, lunch and dinner service. The work assignments included preparation work as well as cleaning up after each sitting. My main responsibility was ensuring that the guests were treated with outstanding service. This position was demanding yet equally rewarding, as it required me to work early morning and late evening shifts, and the ability to work effectively under pressure was key to the role.
During this experience, I displayed an ability to work flexibly - I often had to alternate between an array of different work tasks in order to provide excellent customer service.

As a saleswoman at Korthuset, I was mainly responsible for the cash register. I also made sure that the store was tidy and well organised, as well as being available to answer any customer queries, both on the telephone and in-person.
