Recent Columbia University Masters Graduate offering English, History & Economics lessons in London

Methodology

My teaching method is tailored to you and is highly collaborative. I get to know you as a person - your passions, interests, learning methods - and design classes WITH you to make sure that they are the most productive and useful. I structure my classes clearly so they are easy to follow and efficient. I am a highly energetic and passionate person - I used to be a Debate mentor for both primary and secondary school kids - so will ensure that you stay awake in my lessons!

Experience

Hi! My name is Tania and I have been a tutor for the past five years, teaching English, History, Sociology and other humanities at GCSE & A-level grade. I have taught over 10 different students and all have received A*-B grades in GCSE/A-level. On average, most students have improved at least two grades above their original starting point due to my teaching.

Beyond tutoring, I currently work as a human rights policy officer. Before this, I finished my Masters in Global Thought from Columbia University in the City of New York in May 2020. Prior to that, I completed a graduate internship at the Foreign Office, working in European politics and Brexit. I graduated with a BA in International History from the London School of Economics in 2018.

As a result of my career and educational background, I am happy to provide advice on how to write an outstanding personal statement for university as well as effective interview techniques and job application tips.
