Not everybody has an easy time with education. Or even enjoys it. As a tutor I believe that it is both crucial and possible to find a way to achieve high results within the remits of our education system. Every student has an individual approach, or perhaps may not even know what theirs is yet! As a tutor my aim and role is to enhance their learning style and strengthen the skills that they already obtain. Having read Law at Cambridge University I understand the value of in-depth detailed academic exploration. As a professional actress, with credits such as the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Young Vic & The BBC, I understand the value of positive belief as a vehicle for self-confidence. My approach is personable and effective and has seen tutees continuously achieve high results over the last 7 years.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Over the past seven years I have tutored and assisted students at various stages of their academic careers. Through one-on-ones, group seminars and consultancy work I have witnessed consistent success in students achieving their goals. This year I have seen 15 students gain a place at their 1st choice institution.
