I am returning to tutoring after having to withdraw from my position as a Pupil Barrister due to family illness. I offer my tutees a personalised 1-2-1 service with notes that are tailored to the tutee's course and learning style. I am a highly motivated tutor and independent learner. I am passionate about teaching, learning and professional development.

I have held many varied teaching/ mentoring and tutoring positions. I care deeply about all of my tutees and helping them succeed. I am happy to help my tutees both academically and professionally as I provide services that cover academic modules, dissertation planning, essay marking, CV writing, job application assistance and professional development.

  • Brunel University
  • Bangor University (University of Wales)

I am a highly qualified and richly experienced teacher, who loves to share my own passion for learning. Alongside my school and university teaching of ancient and modern languages (including English) and religious studies/theology, I have been enthusiastically engaged in research on ancient manuscripts; I have a PhD and a post-doctoral diploma on ancient Greek and have published widely.

I am often invited to teach abroad and to speak at international conferences. I am a lively, physically fit and highly organised person, with excellent communication skills, and I always bring creativity and a sense of humour to whatever I do. I instinctively seek to communicate my positive and optimistic outlook to the students I teach. A bilingual English and French speaker, I can also communicate in several other European languages.

About Jasmine

  • Trinity Laban

I come from the Welsh coast, Pembrokeshire and speak fluent English, French, Welsh and Spanish. I love languages and believe that being able to communicate with people from around the world is a vital thing. I really enjoy working with people & am an excellent communicator. I am a friendly, patient, fun and innovative tutor & believe that everyone has the ability to learn a language with the right tutor if they set their mind to it. When teaching, I believe in approaching languages like an instrument, that the following should be worked equally; grammar, listening, reading, speaking and writing. I like to guide/teach the lessons mostly in the language being taught, as people tend to progress more rapidly this way. I cater towards the individual level of each client.

I have travelled a lot, improving my language skills along the way. I believe that being able to communicate & work with people from all sorts of cultures & languages is a vital skill in this global world today. My hobbies include yoga, dance, swimming, surfing, languages, cycling, mountaineering, writing, tennis, traveling, film & cooking. I love challenges and in the summer of 2016, I hiked 892km (660 miles) along the 'Camino de Santiago de Compostella' in Spain. In December 2016 I went to South America & hiked much of the Andes in Patagonia, Argentina alone. I also work often in Nashville and New York.

I am a professional Composer/Songwriter/Musician based between Wales/London and America. I graduated from 'Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance' with a BMus Honours degree in (Composition/Performance/French.) I compose songs and scores for other artists & film/t.v. I have taken people through various music examinations including; IBDP, GCSE's, A-levels and Degrees.

I would love the chance to work with you & help further your skills in French, English or Music.

About Dr Karl
  • Attended:
  • Birkbeck College (University of London)
  • University of Cambridge
  • University College London (University of London)

I am an experienced and passionate teacher whose practice is informed by my work as both a Lecturer and a Tutor at university level (with the University of Nottingham, the University of London and the University of Hertfordshire), as well as by my work in academic philosophy. Having taught throughout my doctoral studies both within my core academic expertise and in other areas, I am highly adaptable in my approach and have a keen understanding of the skills required for any student to write well, especially to meet the demands of higher education. Having studied at both the University of London and the University of Cambridge I also have an intimate understanding of the expectations and characters of different academic institutions.

I have published academic work in Philosophy as well as more publicly accessible work in the subject (for instance, writing for *The Philosophers' Magazine*), and I have also published several pieces of fiction. This has helped to build my strong understanding of the qualities required for clear and effective writing, which I integrate with all of my teaching. I have taught students online both one-to-one and in group settings, from secondary school to undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at pre-university level, having tutored A-Level and GCSE students in Philosophy, Religious Studies, English and Mathematics. I recently started working with a charity offering tutoring catered to students having to re-take GCSE English or Mathematics, which has given me valuable insight into some of the obstacles students can face when trying to study these subjects.
