£65.00 / hour

Tri-lingual tutor, educated at Oxford and Yale

Tutor in French, Spanish, English, university and school applications and Oxbridge admissions.

Education: I studied French and Spanish at Oxford University (BA) and International Relations at Yale University (MA), where I was funded as a Yale University Fellow and a Teaching Fellow. I also hold a diploma in French language, history and politics from La Sorbonne in Paris, and a diploma in Spanish language from the Universidad Complutense in Madrid

Teaching Experience: At Yale I taught weekly classes in history and politics to classes of 15 students studying for BAs, marked all their essays and work and gave individual tuition to students who required it.

I worked as a private tutor in London and Paris, previously, helping clients improve grades, confidence and interest in their work. I have also worked for Oxbridge Admissions, giving mock interviews and application tuition to students.

Skills: I am qualified to tutor English, French, Spanish, politics and international relations, as well as Oxbridge admissions and admissions to universities in the United States. I have particular experience of writing and preparing for personal statements and interviews.

Besides tutoring, I work as a freelance writer. I have been published in The Washington Post, the Financial Times, The Atlantic, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Haaretz and Reuters Foundation. I previously worked as a speechwriter in the UK Parliament.

Please do reach out if you have questions or would like to discuss how I could be of help. Often I can do lessons outside of the noted times, so do let me know when would suit you and I can try to make it work.

*Booking timings can be flexible - please message me if you would like an alternative time*
