Masters student offering tutoring for students with learning difficulties from age 7, to University level and mature students in London

Methodology

I have worked with students age 7 upwards focusing on English, Essay Writing Skills, Organisational Skills, Art and Design. I am also able to support students with learning difficulties (dyslexia, ADHD etc) and/or mental health difficulties.

I have helped students complete their course work and essays, as well as get them prepped for exams. When it comes to the next stage of their education I have also taken students through interview techniques and writing applications for University.

Each students learns in their own way. I use the first session as an initial assessment to see what the best teaching method is for that individual, discuss what that individual wants to achieve, where the student feels they are struggling and design a bespoke lesson plans for that student.

Super tutor

Kira Phoenix is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Experience

I was born in Asia and lived their till I was 13. I started boarding school in the UK when I was 10 due to needing additional support for my dyslexia. I went on to study at Central St Martins and in 2015 graduated from The Royal College of Art in Glass and Ceramics, with a distinction for my thesis.

Since 2009 I have had the pleasure to work with a variety of students from different back grounds and with varying educational needs. Each student has surpassed their own expectations of what they could achieve, with some students going from receiving Cs and Ds to As and Bs. Being dyslexic myself, I really enjoy being able to help other dyslexics, or students with other learning differences, find their own way to learn and gain confidence.

Please note that lessons cancelled with less than 72 hours' notice are liable to be charged at the tutor's discretion.

ONLINE SESSIONS

If sessions are taking place over Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp Video the same cancellation policy applies. Please also note that if the student does not arrive within 15 minutes of the session starting and has not responded to any form of communication from the tutor, the tutor reserves the right to consider this lesson cancelled and will be charged.

If the tutor needs to cancel the scheduled sessions within the 72-hour period, unless otherwise stated or agreed, there will be no charge.


DISCONTINUING ALL TUITION

Should the client/student wish to discontinue all tuition with the tutor, the client/student must inform the tutor with at least two weeks’ notice.

If the client/student, after informing the tutor with notice, would like to start tuition again with the tutor, the client/student will need to be re-assessed to update any changes in circumstances or changes in goals. This assessment will be charged at the full rate and the client/student will need to sign a new agreement.
