A Journalism and History student at Duke University in America with experience working for The Sunday Times, Conde Naste, The Huffington Post and Women's Health Magazine.

Methodology

I have an informal teaching style given my background in mental health education. My classes tend to be between 1-3 hours. I let the student dictate what they personally struggle with and find what method of teaching works for them

Background

I have been tutoring since graduating from secondary school four years ago, teaching over twenty students aged between seven and eighteen. Each has gone on to excel in exams and continue to stay in touch whilst I study. I have also combined different subjects in one class if they are applicable and often utilize videos and fun ways of engaging children in an age-appropriate way.
