My classes are based on discussion so that pupils learn to engage with, and refine their points orally in order to form well-structured essays. We will look at a variety of texts from different time periods for English and History, in order to formulate accurate and rounded responses to questions covering a broad literary time frame tailored to whatever standard the pupil is at. I find exposing students to a diverse variety of texts ranging across both poetry and prose is something they both engage well with and enables them to cover all grounds possible in an exam situation.
With an emphasis on speaking in the target language for as much time as possible (ability dependant), I aim to build student's confidence as this is often what stops people excelling in languages. We will also be looking at some texts and short-stories in the target-language to expose pupil's to the language in its raw form rather than just what it looks like on a worksheet. Finally, there will be an emphasis on grammar and writing as these are the building blocks to any language, and fundamentally the most important when it comes to an examination.
I have been tutoring for the last three years which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I received A*A*A*A (English, French, Spanish, History) in my A level examinations from Westminster and Highgate School.
I have tutored several students at 11+, 13+, GCSE, and A-Level. I have a passion for engaging with pupils interested in progressing in these subjects at all levels. I have helped students get into top schools such as City of London, and Westminster School.
I have tutored many children, some as young as 5 who are learning english for the first time as a second language, and some who are studying for GCSE and A-Levels.
2012-17: Educated at Highgate School
I sat my GCSEs here in which I obtained 10 GCSEs including a level 9 Grade in English Literature.
2017- 2020t: Educated at Westminster School
2021: A*A*A*A at A-Level
I have tutored 11+, 13+, and GCSE pupils in the subjects of English, Spanish, and French which have allowed me to engage with pupils across a broad age-range in a variety of subjects. I have spent time mentoring children at Ashmount Primary School in Holloway who have been diagnosed with autism and helping them learn to read and write. I completed work experience in the Supreme Court in the Summer of 2017, in which I had to engage with a court case and write the follow-up report for as It progressed. I furthermore lead a series of tutoring sessions for pupils sitting their GCSES in the Summer of 2018 in English Literature which enabled them to engage in active discussion with one another about a vast number of literary works which proved particularly useful for the unseen papers.

Perfect! Sophie is brilliant, smart and patient . Her educational approach is based on specific learning preferences. My kid enjoyed "playing English" with the pretty Sophie and made a great progress in verbal English. Highly recommended.
