- Do you have a personal message for students?
My favourite teachers at school were those who were passionate about their subjects and their enthusiasm became infectious. They brought their subjects to life by making them real and exciting. I am very creative by nature and like to integrate new and varied learning methods in my teaching through a variety of aids such as wall posters, mind maps, flashcards and suchlike. I adapt all of my teaching resources to each pupil, purchase new materials, create revision schedules and regularly revise targets in tune with the student's objectives. I set challenging yet achievable goals to help my students achieve their potential. I like to think my lessons are fun and inspiring and I always make a point of tailoring my classes to the interests of each student.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I am a 27 year old British born and educated tutor with over 4 years of one to one tutoring experience at a range of levels. I have a proven record of achieving excellent academic results. I have previously homeschooled children, done short term residential (live-in) tuition and have also worked on a weekly basis with individual students preparing them for upcoming exams.
I have successfully enabled children to gain places in several top UK schools including: Wycombe Abbey, Eton, St Edwards, Harrow, Oundle and Godolphin. I have a proven track record of facilitating huge academic improvements, top examination results and overall academic targets being met with no further intervention needed. I have also facilitated successful entry for undergraduate and post-graduate students to some of the world's top universities.
Both in London and overseas, I have tutored a wide range of age groups and subjects from 8 to 18 years. I can offer both remedial tuition (homework assistance, support with schoolwork) as well as supplementary tuition in which I tailor my own curriculum for the student outside of or alongside the school syllabus.

I hold a current CRB/DBS Certificate

EXAMPLES OF PREVIOUS STUDENT/PARENT TESTIMONIALS:
â€œPaula worked with Austin five afternoons a week as a homework tutor. Her patience and support were quite frankly remarkable. She helped Austin with his assignments without ever taking too much control, helping teach good study habits and build his confidenceâ€ Caitlin
â€œPaula is extremely reliable and hardworking. She works independently and was always eager to try and find new ways in which to tackle a problem. Indeed, I found her creative spirit quite infectious, as did Elliot who seemed more willing with her to try new and innovative ways to approach book reports, essays and even class presentationsâ€ Michelle
I just wanted to extend my gratitude toward my Psychology tuition as I have received my A Level results and received an A in Psychology which got 100% on unit 4 paper. Thus allowing me to be successful in my first university choice.â€ Syed
