Previous Head of Department - graded 'Outstanding'

I am a qualified teacher with a decade of teaching experience. I have been graded 'Outstanding' in lesson observations and with Head of Department experience, I am knowledgable and have a focused approach to exam skills. I love Geography and am passionate about inspiring young people to recognise and reach their true potential. I also work for a growing education social enterprise as well as a leading Youth Coaching company (personal development for young adults) where I am committed to raising confidence and aspirations of the people that I work with.

My creativity and flexible approach means that I have a range of adaptable teaching techniques, suited to all abilities, and I have worked with a number of students with SEN.

I have a love of learning and believe that learning should not just be able meeting the syllabus requirements for the exam board. I am patient with all my pupils and will adapt lessons to meet the needs of the learner. I am flexible in terms of the content that the learner would like to go through and I am able to bring resources to each session, if required.

My experience of qualified teaching practice has meant that I have delivered teacher training to teachers in countries that are developing and unable to access quality teacher training otherwise.

Having taught in a range of schools, I adapt easily to different syllabuses and curriculum. I am passionate about Geography and aim to not only achieve results but teach pupils the value of the subject.

First Rate Tutor

My daughter felt she needed extra assistance with her A2 Geography. As soon as we met Laina we knew she was the one to help her. Laina’s knowledge and professionalism are absolutely first rate only surpassed, possibly, by her enthusiasm and her desire for her pupil to succeed. Not only does she know her subject inside out but she is kind, encouraging and listens to the pupil, identifying weaknesses and suggesting ways to improve. I cannot speak highly enough of Laina - you will not find a better teacher. Thank you for all your help Laina.

Enthusiastic and encouraging tutor

Laina tutored my daughter for A-Level Geography for 8 sessions between December and February. My daughter has benefited from the `kick-start` this has given her in identifying topics she needed extra support on, and also to plan her time for revision. She really enjoyed and took on board Laina`s advice on an approach to working that fit well with her other activities. Laina also helped my daughter with exam technique, specifically with advice on breaking down exam questions to ensure all aspects are answered.

Reference for Laina

I contacted Laina pretty late around March 2016 to tutor my son for his A Level Geography . In the 3 months she tutored him through the whole course advising him on revision skills as well as practice exam papers . She was completely reliable and available at short notice when my son had panic episodes just prior to his exams. He would not have achieved his grade to access university without Lainas tutoring skills , for which i have to thank Laina for . As a parent it is difficult when you are trying to find a good tutor and some of the time tutors are pot luck ! For any parent looking for a tutor in geography I could not recommend Laina highly enough who also travelled to our home which was over an hour away !

Top Geography Tutor

Laina has helped my daughter to secure an A* in Geography (IGCSE). She is extremely professional and a pleasant lady. Laina always has plenty of resources to cover relevant topics. She taught my daughter only for a very short period of time within that she managed to bring her standard very high. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Fantastic tutor

I believe we were extremely fortunate to have found Laina to tutor our severely dyslexic son through a Geography AS retake and A2 exams. She was able to combine structure which he struggles with, with the content in a way he had not been able to grasp before, which was beneficial for his other A2 subjects too. Laina also went above and beyond to attend sessions to ensure our son was tutored just prior to exams, which was essential due to poor memory retention. She is highly professional combined with being genuinely caring and optimistic- a fantastic combination- Thanks Laina, we could not be more grateful!

Excellent Tutor

Laina recently tutored my son at home in Geography at GCSE level. I've found her to be punctual, professional and extremely supportive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and have already passed on her details to other parents. My son confessed that he learnt more in one hour of private tutoring than a half term of lessons at school!

Highly recommended Geography tutor!

Laina really helped my son with his Geography A level. Unfortunately due to various circumstances his school had been unable to provide a teacher for all timetabled lesson. Laina was extremely professional; personable and competent. She was also flexible and was able to fit in with my sons teenage lifestyle! Very happy to recommend her.
