About Sophie

IB Tutor in History and English Literature

Hello! I recently graduated from Oxford University with a first-class degree in History and am now undertaking an MA in European History at UCL. I am a keen, enthusiastic and organised tutor with a wide variety of experience working with young people of all ages.

Before university I achieved 45 points in the International Baccalaureate at the International School of Luxembourg with the following subjects: HL History, HL English Literature and HL Chemistry, SL Mathematics, SL Geography and SL French B. I also self-studied four IGCSEs in addition to studying for my school's internal exams, achieving A* in French, German, English Language and Mathematics.

I am keen to tutor students studying the International Baccalaureate, particularly in History and English Literature, but am also able to offer general tuition to students studying those subjects for other exam boards. I am also happy to tutor students through Oxbridge and other university applications, particularly in preparation for the History Aptitude Test (HAT), which I myself self-studied, so I understand that pitfalls and issues it can pose to students!

I have tutored English as a second language both privately and through the Learning Assistance Programme at my school and have a great deal of experience working with young people outside of tutoring. I have experience volunteering as an assistant dance teacher in ballet and tap and have worked as a dorm and activity leader with multiple residential charities and summer camps, which involved planning and running engaging and constructive activities for children of all ages.

Sophie would be a great tutor!

Written by Arjan Kirthi S
In 2015 we decided to move our son from the local Luxembourg school, where the children spoke in Luxembourgish and were taught in German, to the International School where English is the main language of instruction. Up to that point his spoken English was very good as it is one of the two main languages we speak at home, but we wanted to give him some additional help to improve his reading and writing. Knowing that our son was very fond of Sophie, we asked her to give him some private tutoring.
Sophie spent time with him improving his reading and his writing, spelling and grammar and this proved to be beneficial to him when he started at the International School.
We found Sophie to be reliable, well prepared, kind and genuinely caring. She has an easy manner which put our son at ease and we think she would be an excellent tutor to people of any age.
