About Sabrina

Dedicated knowledgeable to impart achievement selfconfidence

My qualifications and grades are a reflection of my high standard and interest for Maths and Science.

I have a MPhil (obtained in 2010 before interrupting my PhD in 2012) in Physics from King's College London where I also graduated with a MSc Hons in Nanotechnology Engineering with Distinction (2008). I have a BSc Hons (graduated with a First in 2007) in Physics, Chemistry and Matter Science from a French university in Paris (with final year abroad at King’s College London) that I obtained with a First (Mention Très-Bien and I got the highest overall grade of my year hence being “la major de ma promotion”). I also passed my French Scientific Baccalaureate in Paris that I obtained with 'Mention Bien' in 2003.

When I was in France (prior to 2006) I was helping pupils in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, German and French according to the French curriculum. Then after moving to London to study I also familiarised myself with the British and International curriculum in order to pursue my tutoring activities. Later on, as a part of my PhD I was assisting lecturers during their BSc and MSc tutorials in Maths and Physics. I also was an undergraduate laboratory demonstrator in Physics and I was in charge of the marking of their work (lab reports). This allowed me to learn new teaching methods applicable not only to undergraduates and postgraduates but also to younger students.

Alongside my research I provided my services to several private tutoring companies where I was in charge of GCSE, AS- and A2-level intensive revision classes in Physics and Maths (Edexcel, AQA, WJEC, OCR and OCR MEI) during half terms. The experience thereby gained confirmed my passion to help learners understand and discover Maths and Science as interesting and easy subjects.

Since 2012 I have been a full-time tutor helping all level KS and MYP, GCSE (and IGCSE) and GCE (and IB) pupils in Maths and Further Maths (Core, Mechanics, Statistics, Further Pure), FSMQ Additional Maths, Physics, Chemistry and French. I also offer support to undergraduates and postgraduates as well as Foundation year students. I also have been helping several students in different year level at the Lycée Français, Southbank International School, ACS Hillingdon and the Royal Ballet School.

Since 2013 I have been accompanying postulants through their 7+, 11+, 13+ and Common Entrance exams (Westminster school, Godolphin and Latymer, City of London, King’s College, Henrietta Barnett, Latymer, JAGS, Dulwich College, St Dunstans,Haberdashers’, etc.) as well as pupils preparing the PAT entry exam at Oxford and STEP admission tests at Cambridge. I have been helping adult learners in their endeavour to gain Maths qualifications (GCSE, A-level and QTS) or simply improve their Maths skills.

I have worked and still work with several pupils with dyslexia and ADHD; I thereby learned to adapt my teaching skills and behaviour to all my students.

My aim is to improve my tutee's academic and personal attainment by being very patient and attentive to their needs. Hence both parents and students have been extremely satisfied with the work I completed.

Great Tutor

Written by Emma F
Sabrina has tutored my daughter for 3 years since year 6, helping her improve her ability in core maths through key stage 2 and 3 as well as building her confidence. She is a reliable, patient teacher with an approachable and friendly manner. My daughter has really enjoyed her tutoring sessions which have helped to negotiate her way through a school move at secondary level with different teaching disciplines. I would thoroughly recommend Sabrina.
Subject:
Maths
Outcome:
Improvement of ability in maths at key stage 2 and 3

Good, reliable teacher

Written by Alison J
Sabrina taught my daughter Physics shortly before her A levels after her revision had been disrupted by illness. Sabrina was reliable and organised. Her classes were carefully structured but she did not spoon feed; ensuring that my daughter understood and remembered the topics they were discussing. She was helpful and provided my daughter with key topics and points for revision. She is clearly an effective and very accomplished mathematics and physics teacher and is able to turn her had to a wide range of topics and to get on top of the materials covered by different boards.
Subject:
Physics
Outcome:
Confidence and helpful revision techniques which stood my daughter in good stead during the examination period

Sabrina reference

Written by Charlie M
Sabrina came to the rescue of our daughter when she was really struggling with confidence in maths and science . She was with us for a period of over 2 years leading up to GCSE.
My daughter really connected with her and looked forward to her visits and I think she inspired Lucca to become a scientist . Sabrina was very focused with her and often stayed well beyond the allocated time. She would not let her rest on her laurels but pushed her to reach her potential which she duly achieved. I have no heistation in recommending her.
Subject:
Maths and Science
Outcome:
My daughter got A stars in all sciences and maths at Gcse has been predicted 4 As at A level and has a place at McGill university in Canada to study Physics.

Sabrina Reference

Written by Samera A
Sabrina was responsible for tutoring two of my children for GCSE Maths. My children were predicted D grades by their school teachers. With the help of Sabrina both my children not only passed but passed with good grades achieving B grades. These grades were attained within a space of 4-6 weeks. I strongly recommend Sabrina as she managed to not only work to a very tight schedule but delivered according to individual needs of both children. Her manner and personality were terrific and helped the children accomplish tasks set by her. I have recommended her to friends and colleagues as well.
Subject:
Maths
Outcome:
The outcome was excellent. My children moved from a predicted fail grade to a very respectable B grade within a short period.

Literally saved my grades

Written by Azhara U
Sabrina helped me with my math A-level.
I procrastinated the whole year, so I had only few weeks before my exams to learn the year worth of material.
I had hundreds of tutors in my life, but I feel like Sabrina was the only one who took me "under her wing". I could see how she felt totally responsible for my grades and gave it all.
We covered the whole A2 material from the scratch in a very limited time. At the end we even had time to do all past papers and a lot of exercises.
I was very pleased that she came to all classes already prepared and with a plan ahead.
I received A for my Math A-level.
However, my Mechanics 1 was only B. I think that's because I'm naturally not good in physics and we did not have enough time to prepare.
Sabrina also taught my younger brother after, so I would definitely recommend her.

C1, C2, S1 = +90% C3, C4 = +80% M1 = +70%
