Cambridge Qualified Teacher of English

Head of English at a prestigious international school, with over 10 years experience in teaching. Taught in reputable independent schools, top international independent and boarding schools in the UK and abroad.

Former private clients include members of the Thai Royal family, the two younger sons of the Sultan of Brunei and the President of Kazakhstan's grandchildren, as well as children of various oligarchs and CEOs in Central Asia.

I have earned a reputation for outstanding results. Indeed, my greatest achievement to date is teaching A level English language and literature to a focus group of 11 prospective Ivy League and Oxbridge students, where all achieved their first choice in institutions to read their degrees.

I enjoy teaching English to diverse backgrounds and nationalities; it makes for a more rewarding and enriching experience. I regularly work with students for 11+, 13+, 14+ examination entry to competitive independent and boarding schools in the UK and US. Furthermore, I am an accredited examiner for AQA, CIE, OCR examination boards.

I am punctual, organised and have a range of methods to cater for differing learning styles and needs. An introductory first lesson comprises of students sitting a standard English examination paper suited to their age group. The results of the paper will inform forward planning to target weak areas and allow for student progression and success.

At the core of my tuition lessons are the following maxims: every student should be treated fairly, with respect, and most importantly, should be equipped with lifelong learning skills which will empower them to be autonomous and achieve high results beyond the expectations of a syllabus.

Highly Qualified

Rahena has an exceptional ability at producing toplevel outcomes with high school students. She is able to allow especially higher level students reach excellent outcomes in all English language and literature based courses especially within the UK bases curriculum. As the head of her department she also was a good manager and was organised a large number of extracurricular activities such as the debating team which competed at the national championships and are presently enrolled at the international level. I have no hesitation in recommending her for the position of a tutor which she is far more qualified and capable of doing to a high standard.

Experienced, Organised and very engaging Tutor!

This was our first experience with Tutorfair and online tuitions in general. Rahena was well organised and focused with the topics. She injected fun in her teaching with clear illustrations to accompany new concepts which my daughter found it all very engaging. During the short tutorial Rahena managed to deliver effective tips and techniques in writing skills and valuable feedbacks from the initial assessment. I would recommend her as a Tutor.
Outcome:
Improvement on my daughter's story writing quality and the use of powerful words.
