I have dyslexia & struggle with confidence at writing and structuring essays, Sophie was very helpful giving me a plan to write and feedback on how to improve, so my grades went up from 2:2 to a first I was shocked. thank you so much
Sophie is a great writer, tutor and all rounder - she can make edits & suggests for all kinds of topics beyond her own studies. She is well versed in current affairs, policies, theories and critical thinking. I would recommend her due to her quick thinking nature and ability to adhere to deadlines. Plus she is also very friendly & helpful.

When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
I began teaching the English language in 2012 and worked as an assistant in many schools across London. I even worked as a swimming teacher during university & as a part-time EAL teacher. However, I began to tutor full time in 2017 after graduating from my MA in English Literature & Creative Writing
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
I tutor an extremely diverse range of topics & subjects - everything from criminology to English Language, nursing and business. Some projects I have worked on recently include IB English Literature where we are analysing prose and poetry, working for a removal company in London (improving their in-house writing style and sales techniques). I have also been working with a Communications & Public Speaking student, who needed to boost their confidence with writing and delivering speeches. I have an open mind and lifelong passion for learning, although I must admit - I am much more suited to language and writing than mathematics.
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
I had some fantastic English & History teachers all the way through my education - I'm eternally grateful to my Year 12 student for teaching me how to analyse poetry successfully and more recently - my university lecturers for their harsh, but extremely constructive feedback on how to write excellent essays. Through these experiences, I am able to help my students analyse and structure their work to an extremely high standard.
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Flexibility, patience and a sense of humour. A genuine interest in the subject you are teaching also helps. O
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
I was a restless student, but my English Teacher recognised my talent for literature & writing, helping me achieve an A* in my exams and one of the highest grades in my school.
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
As a natural problem solver, I enjoy the challenges that tutoring brings. Dissecting large amounts of text can often be tiring, but ultimately rewarding.
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
I am passionate about life long learning - I have an open mind and love developing my understanding of different concepts and ideas.
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P)?
Being a dedicated, hard-working and passionate tutor, with a student-centred approach!
