Tutors in Putney

Putney is home to some fantastic schools including Putney High School for girls and Hurlingham School and is an inspiring place to live and learn. As J. C Geikie once said of Putney, ‘One of the most pleasantest of the London boroughs, with an extent of open ground which cannot be covered; and with wood and water, common and hill, there will always be an element of freshness and openness in Putney seldom to be obtained’. With its many restaurants and artisan bakeries, Putney is a great place to explore and shop before settling in one of the many cafés or pubs near the riverside. Putney is also the perfect setting for inspiration and learning. The ancient parish is rich in history and is the birthplace of Thomas Cromwell and the death place of William Pitt. Queen Elizabeth I herself used to enjoy hawking, hunting and socialising in and around Putney!

I prepare methodically for lessons, tailoring sessions to the individual needs and interests of pupils. As a recent graduate, I am able to empathise with students - I know what students are going through on a personal as well as academic level so am able to deal with any issues they have. Finally I break concepts and ideas...

I care deeply about helping people to develop confidence in their ideas and their imaginative capacities and recognise that many of these pivotal moments happen whilst we are still in education. As a practicing artist I know how moving from tender beginnings of ideas into manifesting artworks requires real courage and commitment. Having someone someone you can trust in to...

I treat each student’s needs individually and set goals at the beginning, regularly reviewing them with the student. I see education comprising of fundamentally two things: knowledge and skills. Where knowledge needs to be gained, I emphasise the key learning points and review exam-type questions early on with the student. Where skills need to be gained, I adopt the ‘see...

My teaching philosophy is grounded in self-reflection, creativity and self-efficacy. I believe that as a tutor my role is to help students explore their place in the world, embrace diversity and encourage critical and independent thinking. I view learning as a process that should include personal as well as intellectual growth. Not only do I consider these principles central to...

I think it’s crucial as a tutor to be able to put myself in the shoes of my students in order to relate with them on both an academic and a personal level. A good relationship between tutor and tutee is the basis for productive sessions as communication is key.   The subjects I teach, I teach them because I...

I tailor my tuition style to the needs of each individual student, providing a level of commitment and attention to detail impossible to achieve in traditional educational environments. I approach all of my sessions, however, with an enormous amount of enthusiasm and preparation to ensure that the student is improving at a given subject, increasing their confidence, and enjoying studying....

On the tutoring side, I have successfully prepared hundreds of students for GCSE, A Levels, IB and University entry exams, some of them for entrance into top Universities and/or MBA Programs such as Harvard, MIT, Cambridge, Oxford. I am proud to have achieved some absolutely spectacular students’ turnarounds. What I feel I am especially good at, is the way I make my...

I believe that the key to exam success is not only a substantial understanding of the course content but also establishing an effective exam technique with the pupil. As a tutor I will focus on the pupil’s individual needs and encourage their strengths on the course. In addition, I will set achievable short term goals for the pupil, aimed towards...
