Enthusiastic PhD student and committed tutor

Hi, I'm currently a PhD student in Contemporary French Literature at King's College London, and I am a passionate student and teacher of languages.

I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge in Modern and Medieval Languages (French and Spanish; 2010-2014), and I completed a Master's in French Literature and Culture at King's College London (2014-2015). I then spent two years teaching English at the University of Nantes, France (2015-2017).

I am experienced in tutoring and instructing, I qualified and worked as an Assistant Swimming Teacher at 16 and I also worked as a tennis assistant at my local tennis club. I then took a Gap Year, and became a qualified Skiing Instructor both in the British and Canadian systems, I am currently working towards my BASI III ISIA. My tutoring experience resides mainly in voluntary tutoring that I completed with Student Community Action Cambridge, working with two children who did not speak English as their first language, and with TeamUp Cambridge, tutoring a number of students in GCSE English Language and Literature. I also worked with TeamUp and SHINE mentoring during my Master's. At the University of Nantes, I taught undergraduate and postgraduate students at numerous faculties English as a foreign language. I covered topics such as literature, poetry, current affairs, legal and Business English, as well as subject- and industry-specific English related to sports science, dentistry, and pharmacy studies. I also fulfilled numerous administrative tasks and roles, and I was active in organising extra-curricular activities for the students such as English workshops and weekly film screenings.

Through my diverse experience in tutoring and instructing, I have developed excellent interpersonal skills and patience. I am particularly good with quieter or less confident students who need to brought out of their shells. My tutoring ethos is that I pay attention to the wishes of my students, helping them to achieve their goals. However, through instructing skiing in environments where safety and confidence are paramount, I have learnt to pay attention to the subtler aspects of my students, recognising when someone is struggling or feeling nervous. Through this attention to detail, I create calm and friendly teaching environments for my students.

I am passionate about tutoring and the one-on-one aspect, I am excited about helping my students reach their full potential.
