University student offering English Language tuition in London up to Year 9

Methodology

I finished school in 2018 and so I definitely understand the stress and chaotic mindset as kids get closer to exams. I want to help you ease out your work load and cater to your needs. I will provide extra notes, past paper questions and offer feedback on answers. When I teach geography I like to have a conversation through the content instead of drilling kids with facts and definitions - this way you can learn to enjoy the content as well, as supposed to forcing yourself to memories things.

Experience

When I was in school I volunteered to help kids with their studies - be it my own classmates or kids younger than me. I proposed different strategies to studying, what to focus on and most importantly NOT TO STRESS! Being senior prefect and swimming captain at school, I had a responsibility to continuously motivate and push kids towards reaching the goals. And I intend to do the same thing here!
