About the lesson

No one learns the same - this idea is fundamental in my teaching. Firstly, I like to get to know each student in terms of how they learn best and what their goals are, this can be discussed with parent(s)/carer(s). I will start by talking about their current homework, how they are feeling in the subject and any upcoming assessments. I feel that self-confidence is fundamental in success and this is something I aim to work on alongside grades.

For students working towards specific examinations I like to start by giving a standardised test for their age group to which I analyse, mark their answers and give detailed feedback on what went well. I reinforce correct technique whilst also highlighting errors. I then tailor tuition accordingly with regular progress checks. For students with specific goals in mind I have access to a plethora of exam papers we can use to practise rigorously and ensure that we reach and even exceed our targets!

I also offer tuition for students looking to get ahead in their curriculum, to catch up on missed class time or for extra support in their subject area. Through a combination of workbooks, discussions, practise questions and exam style questions we can work our way through the syllabus and help the student in the best way for them.

My lessons have a clear structure and aim. I want my student to find enjoyment in my classes, reduce self-judgment and get great grades! I welcome questions all through the class and am very responsive.

I welcome students for lessons at my flat in Clerkenwell, or I am happy to travel to your home. I also offer classes via webcam.

My English tuition involves working on comprehension, SPAG, vocabulary, creative writing or verbal reasoning.

Mathematics tuition can involve work on fractions, percentages, decimals, ratio and proportion, algebra, measurement, geometry or statistics.

Finally, science tuition includes evaluating data, interpreting observations and data, making predictions using scientific knowledge and applying mathematical concepts and calculating result.

About Sarah

I am an experienced tutor having worked with students who have English as their first language as well as their second language. In 2019 I spent time in Switzerland working as a live in Au Pair for a family, tutoring their two daughters in English and Science. Over the summer of 2020 I worked as a live in English tutor in Athens tutoring two boys in preparation for their Cambridge B2 and C1 exams. I feel I have a rich understanding of how to approach different students. I acted as a tutor at my old boarding school helping students in younger years.
I have spent one year studying Masters of Pharmacy at King's College London before transferring to Liberal arts. I am a kind, patient and enthusiastic teacher who recognises the importance of developing a student's academic confidence.
