- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I teach online using Skype or Google Hangouts. Both platforms are very interactive and lessons are fun, enjoyable and engaging.
Some parents are a bit reluctant to try online lessons but they are an incredibly effective and convenient way to learn. Furthermore, they save you the hassle of commuting or waiting for a tutor who's stuck in traffic.
If you're unsure about online lessons, please contact me to arrange a brief introductory call.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
My message for students is that they should always be focused, work hard and remember that everything that you do now will pay off in due course.
Always persist and commit yourself fully to achieving excellence in all that you do.
Victoria is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have helped hundreds of students to increase their confidence, study more effectively and achieve stellar examination results.
Teaching students from such a variety of academic & cultural backgrounds has given me the opportunity to work with children and adults from across the world and I have been praised for my ability to engage students, achieve optimal academic results and make a positive impact in the lives of my students and their families.
I also have glowing testimonials and references from parents from across the world.

Victoria is an intelligent, hard-working and engaging tutor who has really helped me to improve my English skills. I would certainly recommend her to anybody looking for an enthusiastic and professional tutor. Many thanks, L. Robertson
Victoria began working with my son a few months ago as he needed help with reading and handwriting. His school work has improved dramatically since then and I finally feel confident that he could do well in his 11+ exam. Many thanks, Mrs Khan.
Victoria is very methodical in her explanation. My son has improved since she started teaching him, she really cares about her topic and tutoring. I would recommend Victoria to anyone. Mr Bijle.
Many thanks for your lovely note. I really appreciate it. I thought I'd let you know that I have already received offers from Warwick and Nottingham!
I have rarely experienced such dedication in tutors and really praise your work ethics. The fact that you also contacted my daughter on the night of exams to reassure her was truly touching. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any one who may need an understanding, reliable and knowledgeable tutor.
