My teaching is highly adaptable to the individual needs of my pupils and responds to their specific requirements. I tend to divide lessons into three segments in order to keep things exciting and focused. Each hour of lesson time reflects around two hours of preparation.
I have been tutoring English and history since 2013. I received a BA in English from UCL and a masters in English from Oxford. I have worked as a specialist children's bookseller and am currently retraining to be a teacher

Marina is an excellent tutor, she taught my son in both English and RS. She clearly worked hard creating interesting and engaging lessons and sought out resources relevant to his curriculum. His understanding and interest in both these subjects has massively improved thanks to Marina, I highly recommend her. Josephine Ash, Devon
Marina is incredibly knowledgeable about English literature and has a talent for making it relatable and interesting. We tutored the same GCSE student (I tutored mathematics), who made great improvement with English and gained confidence for his exams. I highly recommend Marina.
