Highly experienced, lively tutor, making learning easy!
I graduated from Oxford University in 2011 with a degree in Experimental Psychology, specialising in 'Educational Psychology'. I currently tutor as well as run a study skills company where I visit schools in London, teaching students how to maximise their potential through various unique learning techniques. I love teaching, and the satisfaction of helping my students reach their goals; I welcome students of all abilities and motivation types. What sets me apart from most is that as well as tutoring my students, I take the role of a mentor, to motivate, encourage and guide them towards success. I have had a lot of experience in private tuition, with a range of students benefiting from my support with 11+, GCSE's, A-Level's and Degree level. I am very lively and approachable, providing a warm environment in which to learn!
Success stories include a student who moved up from a D in A-Level Psychology to a very high B. Another gained almost an A* in her English GCSE after being tutored by me for just a month, a huge improvement from the C/D level she was at. I am currently tutoring students ranging from 11+ common entrance exams to A-level Mathematics and Psychology degree level. I have taken part in several mentor schemes where I supported students with their academic problems in Mathematics, Science and English.I also regularly host group tuition sessions, and run study skills workshops in schools around London.
I spend a lot of time planning for sessions so that my students get the very best out of each lesson. My approach is thus very organised, with small goals set per session, as well as a long term goal to work towards. I always ensure that my lessons are engaging, and work towards building a good relationship with my students, encouraging them to ask questions without any hesitation. I adapt my approach depending on my students' learning style as this is the key to successful teaching. Past papers are also definitely a step in the right direction, as well as looking at the syllabus/specifications for the subject.
