I offer a 50% discount for first classes. I have several years’ experience of teaching to a variety of clients from international bank managers to university preparation students, from a variety of countries. As well as delivering lessons to large groups, I have also worked with numerous students one on one. During my time managing a university preparation course, I assisted hundreds of students with their university applications, achieving the best results the school had ever seen in terms of places. Because of this and my own personal experience with university admissions, I am well placed to advise on university applications. I have designed courses in English with a focus on both academic, legal, and professional English. Additionally, I have delivered and helped create courses on the humanities and social sciences, covering a wealth of subjects including history, politics, psychology, philosophy, sociology, and evolution. I have also lectured on British culture for a summer school. Returning to London in spring 2018, I began working as a historical guide, within three months I was promoted to senior guide and have since designed a British Museum tour from scratch. At the beginning of last year, I set up my own tour company offering bespoke private tours in central London.

How would you describe your teaching style?

My approach is client centred and target-driven. Gaining an understanding of student goals and learning style, together we can plan a structured strategy to progress, step by step. My teaching experience has involved working with diverse students seeking specific outcomes, from specific exam preparation to general language learning and in-house professional training. I have found that focus and flexibility are key, as is regularly checking improvement and maintaining student satisfaction.

What qualifications do you have?

I have 3 A levels (AAA), a BA (2:1) in Ancient History from the University of Bristol, a Graduate Diploma from the College of Law, a CertTESOL from Trinity College and I'm currently completing an MSc in Psychological Sciences at UCL.
