Book Anushka

I am a professional actor alongside being a tutor. I have just completed my MA in Acting from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and graduated with distinction. I have been tutoring for several years, and feel that my profession supports my tutoring in many ways - I am constantly being exposed to new writing and all forms of literature and this aids me in encouraging my English Literature tutees to read widely and expansively, and I have a significant knowledge both from my BA and MA from which I can recommend reading to my students. I know that reading is invaluable and always encourage my students to be curious and explorative in their reading habits. Furthermore, as an actor I practice empathy every day and find this is a crucial skill to bring when tutoring. I am solution-based when it comes to learning and believe that practice makes perfect. I am patient and believe that if someone is struggling to grasp a concept or idea, there is always a way to solve the problem that suits the person best.

Experience

I have tutored in English Literature, English Language and Spanish in the past. I have tutored English Language and Literature at GCSE and A Level standard, for AQA, Edexcel and iGCSE board exams, as well as in Spanish for the same boards. I am also able to tutor in Drama and Theatre Studies for GCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate. I have also coached students successfully through the Oxbridge application process for both English and English and Modern Languages. I have assisted students in writing their personal statements and admissions essays, as well as having prepared them for the entrance tests such as the ELAT. Furthermore, I am highly experienced in coaching applicants for Oxford and Cambridge interviews, having conducted several mock interviews for which I prepare my own resources for the live literature analysis section of the interview as well.
