My style of tutoring focuses on building students' confidence while building familiarity with subject matter, giving them the tools to develop and express their ideas. I encourage students to develop an interest in their work by pointing them towards subject matter that extends slightly beyond the syllabus. My teaching materials and approach differ greatly between subjects, and from student to student, and can be very flexible - I devise a programme of teaching and learning in collaboration with students/parents/teachers (as relevant) and adapt to the individual needs of the student.
I recently graduated from Oxford University, where I studied English and French. I have several years' tutoring experience, and have worked with students aged 3-18. I have tutored French, English literature, English as a second language, maths, and general literacy with children of primary school, secondary school and A-level age. I have primarily tutored students in one-on-one settings, but have also worked with pairs, small groups, and within classrooms. I have tutored about 20 students, helping many to achieve their desired grades in GCSEs or A-levels and some to get into university.
I am a hardworking and committed recent Oxford graduate with varied tutoring experience, highly proficient in developing students’ language skills and confidence.
