Oxford student with experience tutoring in French, Russian, history and English (in London during holidays)

Methodology

I'm a second year student at Oxford studying French and Russian. I've given private lessons to primary and secondary school pupils before in both those subjects, as well as in History and English (I achieved A* in all of these subjects at A Level).
My lesson structure will depend on the needs of the pupil. Often I am willing to read essays beforehand and give feedback during the lesson (regarding content, essay style and technique, clarity) but can also focus on the grammar aspect of language teaching too.

Experience

I have been giving lessons in essay writing subjects (english, history, even geography) to a boy who is currently 13, for about 3 years now. I have also taught his older sister for about 6 years. Although they haven't had any official exams yet, their parents are very happy with their progress (I can provide a reference if necessary).
Last year, I helped a year 13 student prepare for her history coursework and French literature exam, and a year 12 prepare for her French Oral exam.
I also prepared my younger sister for the Creative writing 11 + exams, and helped her get into a high achieving grammar school.
I also ran a Russian Language club and French debating club at school.
