I am a highly-qualified, long-time teacher and professional tutor, having taught 1200+ hours to over 300 students.
I have successfully taught at over ten schools in Oxford, many private students and at university level during the last six years. This has ranged from general/casual learning to exam and entrance preparation at all levels.
I have taught students on and prepared them for the following tests and levels:
Primary and Secondary - KS2, 11+, Common Entrance Tests, KS3, 12+, GCSE, iGCSE, A-level, International Baccalaureate
English Language - Prepa, PET, CPE, IELTS, FCE and CAE.
My approach is friendly, gentle and supportive but extremely professional.
At the heart of my tutoring is how important it is that a student believes in their own ability to learn and to progress. If there is one word I hear my students kindly use to describe my qualities it would be 'patience'. Yet I never feel like my patience is tested - I love the challenge of finding new, innovative ways to help them understand their subject.
