My Passion & How I Inspire

I like to get to know my pupils to build rapport so that we can work as a team during tuition. I also listen to the needs and interests of my pupils in order to tailor my lesson plans to their passions so they better engage with the material, and also have fun.

My Experience

I have been tutoring for various London-based agencies since 2011. I also have experience doing voluntary tutoring at the University of Cambridge and King’s College London for Student Community Action, TeamUp, and SHINE mentoring. I worked for two years as an English language teacher at the University of Nantes (2015-2017), and I am also a qualified alpine ski instructor (BASI 2 and CSIA 3).
