I have seven years of part-time, and almost two years of full-time, tutoring experience. I have worked both for myself (concealed information) and for a range of agencies. I have experience working as an independent contractor for some of the top London- and Paris-based private tutoring agencies.
I tutor Maths, English and French for KS2 and KS3. I have a large portfolio of clients that I help with the 11+ and 13+ common entrance exams. On top of this, I am currently teaching private clients ESL across Ile-de-France. I have also previously volunteered as an English, Spanish and French language instructor (in the UK, California and France) for refugees.
My tutoring style consists of initially gauging the student’s current level through an informal assessment, then setting out clear objectives and target grades with the student and family. At the end of each lesson, I provide a thorough progress report outlining topics covered, the pupil's attainment in that topic, what the following class will cover and the homework set. I set, and mark, interesting and varied homework each week to continue the student’s engagement with the subject outside of our lessons. For me, a tutor must be empathetic, enthusiastic and willing to adapt to the individual’s needs to bring out the best in each pupil.
My mission is two-fold: I aim to both improve students’ academic performance while also developing their confidence and curiosity. I find few things more rewarding than helping young people develop a love of learning.
In 2020, I started my MPhil at the University of Cambridge. Before this, in 2017, I graduated with a First-Class Honours in Political Science. I received the the final year Jim Bulpitt Prize for ‘best overall performance in the department’ at the University of Warwick. During my degree, I was the only person in my year to spend both their second and third years abroad. In 2014, I was awarded a tuition-free scholarship to spend a year at University of California’s premier campus, UC Berkeley. In 2015, I went on to spend my third year at Sciences Po Paris, where I followed the bilingual track (French and English).
Prior to my degree, I studied my A Levels in the south of England, I received all As and A*s in my A Levels in: Mathematics & Statistics, German, History, Politics & Government, as well as 98% in my Extended Project dissertation on international relations. In a year group of over 1,000 students, I was awarded highest A Level mark in Politics (100% UMS). In my final year at college, I also won the national House of Lords Essay Competition on and was in the final team for the Oxford Union School’s debating competition. I took my GCSEs at my school in Sussex, receiving 12 A* and 2 As. I took five GSCEs a year early and thus in my final year I had the chance to take additional advanced, non-GCSE, exams in Mathematics (modelling with calculus), German and English Literature. In my final year, I received both the House Award and the award for ‘Outstanding Academic Achievement’.
