Currently studying BSc Anthropology at University College London
From 2010 to 2017, I attended the International State School Collège-Lycée Honoré de Balzac where I chose a Literary cursus with optional courses in Math, Latin and German. My grades were the following: overall average 17.1/20, 20 Math, 19 philosophy, 19 Latin, 18 French Lit., 16 English. I was elected class representative every year from 2013 to 2017 and made a member of the School Administrative Council in 2017.
In the summers of 2015 and 2016, I went to school in Nuremberg (Germany) where I took classes in Math and German.
In the summer of 2013, I was accepted into The University of Virginia (USA)’s summer enrichment program where I took classes in Physics and Global Media.
My Approach to Private Tuition
I was brought up in the French system which focuses on method and logical rigor. My sessions are therefore organized, and I usually set a program for each session, based on my tutee’s strengths and weaknesses. I adapt quickly to my tutee’s needs and can change the session’s program according to capacities. For example, one of my students had an attention disorder. I then included several breaks and more interactive work, like poetry readings and role-plays. No student is the same, and my work with every individual is different.
I put a lot of emphasis on communication and feedback, knowing what I am doing right and wrong is important to me. I am open to special requests and welcome new ideas to make our session together more entertaining. When learning is fun, you look forward to it!
