About Dr Bess
  • Attended:
  • Higher Education Academy
  • University of the West of England
  • London Metropolitan University

I hold extensive experience in teaching academic writing and research at BA, MA and PhD level, successfully supporting students at Sotheby's MA Art Theory and Business of the Arts, UAL, RCA, Goldsmiths BA Media Studies, SOAS Curatorial Museum Studies, University of Nottingham and Bristol University BA Art History.

I support students in developing critical, analytical thinking and ways to structure ideas which the higher-order and complex thinking that academic research and writing demand. Working internationally, I practice a deep understanding of the challenges that a student with English as a second language face in studying in the UK.

Students tell me that: "I am hopeful you will be around to help with tutoring (what you are so good at)!

" I just wanted to let you know that I got my results back for the thesis and I got a 1st! (78.5%!) I could not have done it without you, and I am so grateful."

"I remember and benefit from Bess's inspiring, encouraging and empowering approach. She just gave me that extra nudge to go for the goals that I want to achieve and to have the courage to "cross the Rubicon."

Professional feedback states that: "Bess has proved she is a flexible and responsive teacher. She looks carefully at the needs of the student and responds accordingly, devising and structuring schemes of work and lesson plans which meet the differentiated needs of the learners. Bess also uses enjoyable and relevant topics which motivate the learners and help them access the experience in a fun and stimulating way.

About Lucia
  • Attended:
  • Universidad de Buenos Aires
  • London School of Economics and Political Science (University of London)

I am a Data Scientist working in the industry for 6+ years. I graduated from London School of Economics with a Distinction in MSc Management Science (Applied Stats), and from University of Buenos Aires with Distinction in MSc in Applied Mathematics, with focus in Econometrics, Statistics and Probability, Data Science, Machine Learning and coding.

I have been an Assistant Professor at several Universities, as well as a tutor and a Research Assistant. I currently run my own Data Science outsourcing services.

My main interest is to tutor Professionals in all Data Science related areas - coding, Statistics, best practices, Machine Learning and Algorithms, Quantitative and Qualitative Methods. Being Data Science such a dynamic discipline and so hot the industry at the moment, I believe there is a lot of room for advising professionals of all areas on how to improve their day-to-day tasks with the use of data.

On the other hand, I am interested in tutoring Undergrads and Graduate students in Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science: with regard to the last one, I can teach:

-Foundations of coding - logical structures, algorithm design and optimisation

-Specific package usage in Python, R, SPSS and others.

Outside of my academic life I enjoy sports, notably tennis and skiing, and am an avid theatre and art goer. I was heavily involved in societies during my undergraduate degree being a part of a musical production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and gaining the St Andrews Music Department Vocal Scholarship in 2006-2007.

About Dr Jenny
  • Attended:
  • Royal Holloway and Bedford New College (University of London)
  • 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.
