I’m a creative, enthusiastic tutor and believe that tutoring should be engaging, fun and tailor made to complement the learning styles, abilities and interests of each individual student. I believe it’s very important to get to know the interests of my students so I can incorporate them into each lesson! I believe that confidence is key to learning and so I try to foster an environment where my students feel like they can grow and take their knowledge back to their school classrooms and raise their hands in class with enthusiasm in front of their peers.
I’ve tutored a variety of students from age 7-18 in the lead up to exams and to help build confidence and organisational skills.
While in school I was a member of the Capital Children’s Choir, a prestigious London based choir ranging in age from 6 to 20. From 2005-present I have taken on a variety of teaching roles for the choir including teaching a class of 5-6 year olds, a class of 7-9 year old girls and 7-10 year old boys. I continue to substitute teach all classes (students aged 6-20). I also give private singing lessons to many members of the choir, with the goal for some of improving technique and others to help with confidence and stage presence. Teaching music has given me a clear incite into how to run a class and keep the students engaged and on task!
I also ran a reading club for many years at a primary school to create a safe space where students of all ages who were struggling with reading could go to learn and improve.
I attended Francis Holland School for Girls until year 9 and The American School in London through upper 6th. At ASL I took AP courses in Art History, US History, European History, Macro-economics, Micro-economics, Environmental Science, Music Theory and English. I maintained national honor society status through high school.
I received my BA from Yale University where I majored in History of Art and took a wide variety of courses in English literature as well as science, math and writing. I was president of the student activities committee for Calhoun College and received the Dwight Waterman Prize for service to the community. I was also a member of “Proof of the Pudding” acapella group (it was almost like Pitch Perfect!).
I received a MA in Curating the Art Museum from The Courtauld Institute in London with Merit.
I once sang backup for The Spice Girls!
