Methodology

My ethos is to always create a fun, thorough, and varied curriculum, creating custom lessons according to a client’s individual needs, taking into account the student’s goals and focal points. Hands on and practical learning are key attributes of my teaching, always contextualising knowledge in real life situations.

I have always greatly enjoyed exploring new places and living in new cultures. As a graduate of French and Portuguese, I partook in a year abroad, spending six months in Paris, and six months in Brazil, where I changed locations roughly ever two months. Many of my students have had mild ADHD or learning difficulties, so taking educational breaks that are relevant to their chosen subject is important to refresh their attention span and create a fun and relaxed learning environment. I value interactive games that encourage students to put into practice the skills they have learned and enjoy their new abilities, while feeling like they are taking a break from the class. I particularly enjoy teaching maths and languages, so my lessons focus on learning new skills and then putting them into practice in interesting ways that provoke excitement and passion for the subject. I am relaxed and easy going, with a drive to see my students succeed in their subjects, so lessons are naturally a safe and comfortable environment in which to develop new ideas.




Experience


My name is Jessica Voicu, I’m a recent University of Oxford graduate with a BA in French and Portuguese.

I have extensive tutoring experience in French, Portuguese, English language, English literature, mathematics, numeracy, and literacy, and exam preparation. I have experience delivering online tuition across a range of subjects and for a great variety of ages and abilities. This summer, I accompanied a London-based family on their annual trip abroad as a live-in tutor and directed the online studies for their two daughters until the school programme ended. This included maths. functional skills, and teaching the full curriculum of classes online. I supplemented the online lessons with homework support, and outdoor classes, as well as daily French lessons.
