Experience

As a top rated tutor with over 400 hours experience I have significant knowledge of and experience with a number of levels and exam boards including, but not limited to, AQA, Edexcel, WJEC, CIAE and IB. Most recently a student has informed me how they achieved an A after a long year of achieving C’s after their work with me! I have also now worked with the Profs with a number of University students including but not limited to PHD students - offering support and guidance on ELT and English Lang and Lit courses. As an Oxbridge graduate and co-founder of an admissions tutoring charity, I have significant experience tutoring students through the Oxbridge admissions process. As a Trinity Cert qualified TESOL tutor I have worked with a number of international students both online and in person through the IGCSES and other international tests such as SATS, MAP, IELTs etc. I, also, have experience and success helping students navigate the admissions process for international schools both abroad and in the UK. As a general ESOL/TESOL tutor I have developed long term working relationships with my clients who appreciate the frequent support I am able to offer them in improving their English skills. This has been informed by my experience both working in schools abroad and on language immersion camps. Furthermore, I currently work in person at a refugee centre weekly offering support to ESOL learners so I have experience working with all levels of English!
