Teaching Experience

As a tutor, I push all my students to achieve to the best of their abilities. Part of my role is to help students see that they can excel beyond what they thought they were previously capable of, by setting high standards and encouraging hard work. By adapting to the needs and interests of each student, I aim to foster their self-confidence and interest in a subject. I have a wide range of experience teaching in different settings. I have worked in state and independent schools in the UK and Poland, privately tutored individual clients, as well as interned with an educational foundation in the south of India. My teaching experience ranges from teaching young classes of students who speak minimal English to creating and delivering one-to-one bespoke curricula to high-achieving students.

Biography

As a Politics graduate and teacher, I am also often engaged in politics in the UK, although I have spent the last two years working abroad. Before working full-time as a professional tutor and teacher, I was briefly employed by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on their Centenary programme, and as such have a particular interest in the history and commemoration of the First World War.
I enjoy walking, reading poetry, and travelling – especially by railway. For sport, I’m a keen squash player, cyclist and runner.
